Cover for "The Kundalini Poems" 

Cover for "The Kundalini Poems: Reflections of Radiance and Joy"

Here is the cover for my new book, which will be up on Amazon and B&W as well as the wonderful publisher, Emergence Education Press, in a few days.  I will let you know when it is available to purchase.

Here is the lead poem from the book:


What you seek was seeking you.

How is it
that when I was
looking for You,
You were seeking me also?

Silently You watched and waited.
Sometimes gave me
a brief glimpse
or taste
of who You were,
like a shy deer in the forest
that vanishes when
you turn to look.

And so I roamed,
looking here and there,
gazing at the hieroglyphs on trees
or peering into the throats of flowers for secret revelations,
listening to the waves
pounding the shore for messages,
examining books and stars,
seeking essence.

Finally I gave up my searching,
surrendered my deep desire
to stillness.
And then You gave me a kiss
that lasted forever.

Early Sunrise Walks––poem by Dorothy 

Early Sunrise Walks

How is it that the heart
can hold so much sadness
and so much joy,
all at the same time?

That those who so easily
broke my heart
are the ones
who still haunt my dreams?

That the world around,
that appears to be crumbling
before our eyes each day,
still offers so much hope
in the midst of sorrow?

Today I rode through
ice glazed hills
beneath a hidden sun,
but there was enough light
to see and oh, yes,
the magic was still there
in a way that no one can explain,
beauty stroking the soul,
and I remembered early
sunrise walks down country roads
when I was so young
and everything was new
and I had no idea
what was ahead.

The Divine Alchemy––poem by Dorothy 

The Divine Alchemy

I came down
as a small seed
buried in earth.

I did not recall
my beginnings
nor my intended goal.

I was a particle
of some larger self,
some vaster being
choosing to shrink
and descend.

Gradually I
parted the darkness,
thrust upward,
called by the sun.

I bloomed as a wayward flower;
bewildered at such sameness surrounding,
I turned in another direction
apart from the others
who seemed to hear
some other rhythm,
another cadence
to direct their course.

When I took form as a person
I was quietly alone,
till at last the Goddess
found me,
held me in Her arms.

And then something else
a reality vast and incomprehensible,
the Goddess unveiled.

I mated with this unknown element
until it became who I was.

And then I was given glimpses
of my original self,
what I had been elsewhere
at the beginning
of this journey,
how I flowed toward
this essence now.

Each fiber and molecule
now vibrated at a new frequency
as I expanded into yet another form,
a being who could move subtly,
ecstasy filling her veins,
 caress her own aura in bliss,
feel the sweet energies of earth
or of others as they passed by.

At last I knew my source,
the reality from which I came,
who I was fused with now
and the field of love
encompassing all.

Kundalini Signs and Symptoms--Yoube presentation by Jarrod Bull 

Kundalini Signs and Symptoms––Youtube presentation by Jarrod Bull

Of the many presentations on Kundalini I have found, this is one of the best. I did not realize until the end that I knew this speaker, or at least had met him some time back.

 The only reservation I have is that when he describe his visual symptoms (wavy lines and such), he implies that everyone will have them (not true). Also, he gives scant attention to bliss, which I feel is the most important aspect of all, for this is the state that tells us that we are indeed connected to the divine.  Also, he does not include a description of what happens over the years as you nervous system adjusts to the new energies and you enter a very different state of consciousness as you experience more at a very subtle level, until you find yourself feeling other people's energies or caressing your own aura in delight.

His name is Jarrod Bull.  He offers a free consultation at transformationalcoaching.co (don't know why it is co and not com)

Thanks, Jarrod.

"Opening to the Power of Awe"

Beloved friends and family,

What if the key to life’s greatest challenges was to approach them like a child... with curiosity, enthusiasm, inquisitiveness... and WONDER?

In the presence of awe, the mind lets go… and opens.

Yet, many of us have grown up in a culture that’s threatened by a direct experience of awe. Scientific fundamentalism sees a world stripped of enchantment and meaning. Religious systems require obedience to doctrine. Social and family systems are often rooted in fear.

In truth, awe offers us a powerful expansion of identity… a release from limited ideas of ourselves and the world…  

Awe can heal and transform YOU, according to celebrated mystic teacher Andrew Harvey, when you approach it as a spiritual practice… (It’s also essential to the planet’s survival, Andrew says!)

On Wednesday, November 14, my dear friend Andrew Harvey will show you how to access the healing medicine of awe so that you can embrace openness, flexibility, and resiliency (especially in the face of adversity).

Awe brings us to our knees, and empties us of addictive thinking and the need to control. Surrendered and humbled, we can find our rightful place within the Great Mystery…

Register now for this free event, here: https://shiftnetwork.isrefer.com/go/paMS/Mirabaistarr/

During Opening to the Power of Awe: The Transfiguring Path of Wonder, Radical Humility & Ecstatic Celebration, you’ll:

Understand why a direct experience of awe is essential for the evolution that’s required for humanity to survive and thrive

Discover why awe holds the key to unfreezing concepts and fixed ideas that are a barrier to your connection with divine guidance

Understand how to use the gifts of wonder to enter a portal into conscious co-creation with the Beloved

Recommit to the power of playfulness, celebration, and dance as an essential spiritual practice

Open to mystical insights from Rumi and Kabir that rekindle your connection with awe

Some of history’s greatest mystic poets, like Rumi and Kabir, have given us glimpses of the power of awe in their writings — and have pointed to wonder as the portal into a deeper relationship with the Divine.

And now, Andrew Harvey, whose teachings are rooted in Sufism, mystical Christianity, and numerous other lineages, will open this portal for YOU.

You can register here: https://shiftnetwork.isrefer.com/go/paMS/Mirabaistarr/


P.S. During Opening to the Power of Awe, Andrew will illuminate the healing power of awe as an essential practice that’s medicine for your spiritual path.

Register now for free here: https://shiftnetwork.isrefer.com/go/paMS/Mirabaistarr/

A downloadable recording will be provided later to all who register, whether or not you listen to the scheduled event.

Mark Nepo––"Adrift" 


Everything is beautiful and I am so sad.
This is how the heart makes a duet of
wonder and grief. The light spraying
through the lace of the fern is as delicate
as the fibers of memory forming their web
around the knot in my throat. The breeze
makes the birds move from branch to branch
as this ache makes me look for those I’ve lost
in the next room, in the next song, in the laugh
of the next stranger. In the very center, under
it all, what we have that no one can take
away and all that we’ve lost face each other.
It is there that I’m adrift, feeling punctured
by a holiness that exists inside everything.
I am so sad and everything is beautiful.

- Mark Nepo

A Prayer for our Time 

A Prayer for Our Time

Shatter me into fragments
of gold.

Let the gold flow forth
as liquid light
to heal our needy time.

Let showers of gold
gild each of us,
turn us into reflections
of that which we are meant
to be.

Ted Murray––Breathing Love 

Dear Dorothy,

We all have our unique journey and gifts to share in this amazing process of planetary transformation. This makes the journey very exciting as we meet and gather together to share our special gifts to create a beautiful tapestry that is the new world that is coming. However, there is one gift that all of us have in common. That is that we are meant to bring light and love into the planet and ground it into the earth while sharing it powerfully with all living beings.

A process that came to me a few years ago that helped me envision this is a simple 4 step breathing process. Any form of conscious breathing helps increase your energy and your connection with the Divine. This one is simply counting to 4 as you breath in, holding the breath for a 4 count, exhaling for 4 and holding for 4. Instead of counting, I use the following phrases to help me count more consciously. The inhale is: “Light flows in to me.” The first hold is: “Heart turns light to love.” The exhale is: “Love shared with the world.” The final hold is whatever affirmation works for you, perhaps something like. “I’m a child of God,” or “Thank you God for love.”

While holding I think of the heart as a transformer, taking the light and turning it into love (although they are already one and the same) and then amplifying it so it's more powerful than when it came in. I see us all as being amplifiers of God’s love, transforming it in our own unique way so it's shared in the most effective way with everyone we encounter. I hope this process will help you see yourself as an amplifier of love and encourage you to share it more and more in your own unique way.

Love & Light,

I would love to share light and love with you in a more personal way. To do that I am offering a 30 minute free coaching call to help you increase your ability to powerfully share your unique message with the world. To book your appointment just click here:https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=12188355

Today's message is also on YouTube where I guide you through this breathing process in a way that will make it more powerful for you. To access that video just click here: https://youtu.be/whVPPz2CIN0

Andrew Harvey––White Lions in Africa 

From Andrew Harvey

Join me for the experience of a lifetime
View this email in your browser

Dear Friends,

I would like to invite you to join Linda Tucker and me in Timbavati, South Africa for our Sacred Warriorship School, which will take place from September 20-29th 2019 in Timbavati South Africa for Sacred Warriorship School

Speaking for myself, after five visits to this miraculous place, I have been graced with a whole new level of understanding about the sacredness of these amazing creatures, the interconnection of all worlds and the depths of the African Shamanic Tradition. Linda Tucker's teachings are quite amazing, as she entrusts us with some extremely powerful, secret practices from the lineage of lion shamanism that she belongs to, as a pupil of the great South African shamans, Maria Khosa and Credo Mutwa.

Linda and I are able to work effortlessly together, in order to inspire the initiates to rise to a completely new level of awareness. I wish I had the words to describe the full radiance of what unfolds in Timbavati, but I would have to be Shakespeare and Rumi combined to do so. What I can say is that in all my 63 years of experience, there is no other place on earth where you can experience the majestic sacredness of creation more purely and more intensely.

The white lions are not simply the most beautiful creatures on earth, but are also, as Linda Tucker makes clear in her book, The Mystery of the White Lions, "carriers and transmitters of a revelation crucial to the survival of humanity and nature".

Given the enormous urgency of the world crisis, I feel it is essential that as many people as possible receive the grace that pours from sacred Africa and its animal avatars. We only take a very small group, so that the experience can be as intimate and protected as possible.

Coming into deep contact with the white lions and supporting Linda Tucker’s heroic enterprise is I believe, the perfect way to begin your journey into a much richer relationship with nature and into becoming an advocate and Sacred Activist on her behalf and with her blessing. We would love for you to join us.

Love always,

The Goddess––poem by Dorothy 

The Goddess

She is the sweetness
that flows through all
and stirs the rocks and trees
to sing.

She is the nectar
of night falling rain,
the pause of the rose
waiting to open.

She is both male
and female,
Shiva and Shakti
locked in eternal embrace.

She is the dancer
in every bud and corpuscle,
the rhythm of the beating heart,
the roar of the waves
pounding the shore.

She is the wind
lifting the birds toward heaven,
the passageway of the
gliding creatures with fins.

She is the myriad stars
exploding and dissolving
as the many worlds come into being
and are swallowed into infinity again.

She has many names,
and each is a veil
masking her true nature.

It is she who embraces
all who call on her,
makes them cry out in joy
and forgetting when she arrives.

You will know her when she comes,
for she will wear your face.

Suspended––poem by Dorothy 


Neither awake nor

Neither moving nor
standing still.

Neither speaking nor
hearing words spoken.

What is this state
of nothingness?

What is its source?

Who awaits me

Becoming a Secret Dancer 

Becoming a Secret Dancer

Last night I attended a delightful performance of African and Middle Eastern music.  It included dancing, for folks from the audience got up and danced the hora and than did freeform dancing.  I love to watch people who love to dance.  They literally go into an altered state, for they know that they are in touch with something special, something that connects them to what is beyond their ordinary selves.

I did not attempt to get onto the dance floor, but rather stood by my chair and moved my hands and arms to the music.  Later, some told me they were happy to see someone my age moving to the rhythm of the music.

What they did not realize was this:  once your Kundalini energies are awakened, you can experience sweet bliss with minimal bodily movement.  You do not have to swivel  and turn, gyrate and jump, in order to feel soft and subtle, yet vibrant and indeed often rapturous energies within.  Sometimes even a gentle movement of the fingers is enough to send these delightful sensations flowing through your body.  At times even moving your eyes back and forth is enough to awaken these feelings.

So, although the others may have noticed a nice older lady still able to move her body a bit, I was performing a secret dance within, as the subtle energies were awakened inside.

A Red Letter Day 

A Red Letter Day

Today, the proof copy of my new poetry collection called "The Kundalini Poems, Reflections of Radiance and Joy," arrived.  This is an exciting moment for me.  I have labored on these poems for quite some time and am delighted that they will soon be
available on Amazon and FB.  I have been blessed with an amazing publisher (Emergent Education Press), that is dedicated to publishing books that will help to shape our future. 

"The Kundalini Poems" is such a book.  In my view, Kundalini is the key to our future as a people and a spiritual force.  These poems flow from this perspective and were in fact more "received" than crafted.  I became the amanuensis, the vehicle for many sacred and mystical verses, that came quickly over a period of some eighteen months.

 I have worked with a dream editor (Amy Edelstein) who has overseen the publishing process with  expertise and devotion.

I will publicize the actual publication date when that occurs.  In the meantime, I feel much gratitude to see this major project approach completion.

Gregg Braden, Dr. Joe Dispenza & Bruce Lipton on Youtube. 

 Gregg Braden, Dr. Joe Dispenza & Bruce Lipton Ph.D @ TCCHE 2017 .....

Here is another fascinating discussion by three of the most interesting teachers of our time, also on youtube:

The Conference for Consciousness and Human Evolution - Posts ...
youtube.com .... Gregg Braden, Dr. Joe Dispenza & Bruce Lipton Ph.D @ TCCHE 2017 .....

Youtube enables us to "attend" workshops and conferences without leaving home and generally at no cost.  For me, almost anything by the above trio or Lynne McTaggart is worth listening to.  They are at the forefront of change, demonstrating in their own lives what the "New Human" might be.

However, I do have one reservation.  In the midst of all their discussions about mind expansion, they do not specifically mention the spiritual aspect, especially as this is accessed through the mind/body connection.  Transformation does not occur in a vacuum. It involves the complete restructuring of the nervous system and the tapping into hitherto unknown feelings and experiences.  These, in the right circumstances, connects us to the field of love that is the essence that connects everything in the universe to everything else that exists.

For me and a growing body of others, the key to such connection is Kundalini, the life force itself, that can unleash feelings of bliss and sometimes even ecstasy and rapture when the subtle energies stream through the body.  Gregg talks about the DNA of the human being that suddenly appeared 200,000 years ago with no preceding evolutionary history. We still carry this same DNA in our bodies. This DNA, I feel, prepares us to awaken the deep forces of Love as felt bodily bliss and bring what has been unconscious into the conscious mind.  This awakening tells us who we truly are and when we experience it we know we are home.  For me, such states carry me into a sense of connection with the divine itself.  I cannot think my way to "God" nor can I comprehend the full truth of our cosmos, but I can feel that which carries me to a new level of experience and thus I become the "New Human" appearing among us today.

Lynne McTaggart and Gregg Braden––free youtube conversation  

I found this conversation one of the most fascinating I could imagine.  Greg Braden revealed that recent DNA research has found that humans did not descend from primates, as Darwinian evolutionary theory posits.  Rather we emerged without any previous ancestry on earth about 200,000 years ago.  We still carry this DNA in our systems.  Of course the 'old guard" whose careers and fortunes are wedded to the Darwinian model will oppose this idea, but facts are facts and they will have to revise their thinking at some point.  Lynne McTaggart's experiences with focused intention by groups are well known.  Her projects with large groups sending intentions have produced verifiable results such as marked reduction of violence in certain key areas. Her more recent experiments with small groups such as the "power of eight' have also produced some striking results, such as amazing healing  both physical and emotional.  Sometimes it is he healers themselves who are healed in astonishing ways.
I cannot recommend this Facebook free event more strongly.

Here is the Facebook site:
Designed to Heal: Lynne McTaggart & Gregg Braden in ... - YouTube


Lynne McTaggart and Gregg Braden present:
Designed to Heal (a free /facebook event)

Lynne McTaggart and Gregg Braden are two leading pioneers of the New Science, and yesterday they came together in conversation for a FREE Facebook Live event discussing our latent human capacity to heal.

Among a number of fascinating and mind-expanding topics, they discussed:

* Why connection, not competition, is so vital in healing, and why Darwin’s theories about ‘survival of the fittest’ were wrong

* The role of the Field – and fields generated by the body – in self-healing

* The extraordinary amplifying healing effect of small and large cooperative groups

* The power of altruism and heart-centered activities to heal the giver
Please feel free to share this video to your friends and family and don't forget to leave a comment. We had some lovely comments from people across the globe.

Here is another event, upcoming:
