We have discovered that Dragons are the broken ends of branches or fallen trees. As you look upon them, many times you will clearly see their eyes, snout, mouth, body, and other features, which will look like a Dragon. My comment is that you have to drag on them to pull them out of the woods.

Check out this YouTube Video about the upcoming Solar Eclipse, August 21, 2017 and its astrological meanings as it journeys across the US. Very interesting and quite informative.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, there’s a total eclipse of the Sun. The Sun’s light will be eclipsed by the Moon and the Moon’s shadow will fall across America.

The path of totality, averaging 67 miles (108 km) wide, will cross through 10 states – Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina – and skim several others. It will pass directly over Salem (Oregon), Idaho Falls and Lincoln (Nebraska), Kansas City and Nashville (Kansas) and Columbia and Charleston (South Carolina). Residents and visitors to these cities will be in the dark for over 2 minutes with those near Hopkinsville, Kentucky – at 1.24.41pm EDT – experiencing the Sun’s glorious corona, strange colors in the sky and stars in the daytime for 2 minutes and 40 seconds. All regions outside the path of totality will experience a partial eclipse. Los Angeles and Boston will experience a 60% cover of the Sun; Miami a 78% cover; Chicago a 87% cover and Seattle and Denver a 92% cover.

Gift/Guest post from: June 9, 2017 – Laura Walthers –

It was a very enchanting day. I took my friend Shay to visit a beautiful magical place in Oregon, Opal Creek-3-Pools. When you choose to live consciously—nature mirrors the many levels of consciousness back to you. So you may ask, “What does that mean—to live ‘consciously’?

It stems from believing—all things in creation are connected. From that point of unity consciousness it grows into allowing that higher part of you to come forward. This opens you up to the many dimensions around you in your reality. So when you are in nature the many levels of beings can connect with you and play and celebrate life with you!

I invite you to walk with Shay and I and SEE the many ways this can happen!

Happy Trails!

Above Photo:  Shay is playing her Tibetan bowl at Opal Creek. Notice the white arrow in the back-green-brush of the photo. This is the Forest Deva welcoming us to the area. She reveals an imprint of her green face and crown on her head.

Shay could feel the Forest Deva before she saw her. The forest deva sent her a huge wave of love! The forest deva wanted me to take her photo. Each section of any landscape has an overlighting deva. (There are faces in the rocks next to Shay’s head.)

As we trekked to the upper level of the park we could feel a strong connection in the forest. The faces in the trees were appearing and welcoming us. When this happens you are seeing physically and spiritually. Your 3rd eye is activated! 

Shay is clairvoyant and was given a glimpse of another timeline that had existed there many years ago. She could see a Chinese temple with red and gold carvings on it. Then she heard a voice come from a large rock. A man appeared with partial bald head and a beard and mustache out of moss. He asked her is she would play the Tibetan bowl for him. As she played I heard the words, “Ring of Truth” echoing from the sounds. He was part of the royalty that had once lived there.

Above Photo: See white arrow-Asian King appeared through rock.

Then she heard a voice coming from another rock that said, “Quickly take the photo, the sun has revealed me—but the light will not last for long.”

As I approached this section of the forest with Shay I came upon a wizard! He was the guardian of the area and allowed the doorway/portal to open so we could connect with the Asian temple. His wizardry was alluring and profound.

I was guided to take Shay to see the cave and rock beings that live there. We are viewing them high above the canyon pools below—on the other side.

Laura Walthers -

Above Photo:  The white arrow is pointing to the portal in the mountain. The large rock being in the canyon is pleased to connect with us.

As we approached the canyon and focused our attention on the cave0151the energy blew me away. Shay could feel it too. I have connected with them before but today it was very strong. I decided to send love and we both toned together. Then I could SEE a huge face in the doorway! Wow!

Laura Walthers -

Above Photo:  Rock being revealed in cave doorway!

The rock being was connecting and sending strong energy. You can see his eye looking at you. It was smiling and pleased we were able to receive. I also noticed a dark figure that outlined the entrance of the door. It appeared to be dancing. I asked if it had a message and Shay heard, “When Humanity growsthe Universe dances. ” 

Here is a closeup of the Rock Being:

The Ear H.E.A.R.S.

September 23, 2017
12:30 – 3:30 PM – Saturday
Lotus Yoga Center
465 Oakland Ave
Apopka, FL 32703

The Ear H.E.A.R.S. 

(History, Equipment, Action, Results, Safety)

LEARN about the:

H-History of Candling/Coning from the past and the present day.

E-Equipment needed to properly use the cones for ear candling.

A-Action of handling, trimming, watching the procedure & the fire.

R-Results of the flame, color and the residue found in the cones.

S-Safety of the fire, properly preparing the area & cone trimming.

“Ear Candling is an age-old ‘home remedy’ used to soothe the ears and to help relieve pain and itching from infections and other conditions.  Many people believe the process helps soften earwax and helps the body excrete any excess wax. Other benefits may include helping dry out any fluids in the ear canal.  

Today, ear candling is practiced all over the world. Candle makers now use many modern manufacturing techniques, quality control and hygienically sound practices to produce better and more consistent products. As a result, the practice of ear candling is growing even more popular every year!” However, they are very few people who actually know how to administer the ear candles properly and safely. 

People are welcomed to bring their own cones, however we will have a selection with us for people to try.  Some of these cones cost as much as $18 per cone. A regular candling session calculates two candles per ear depending upon the candle and the conditions of the ear. The cost of an Ear Candling Session ranges from $50 to $125 per session.

The overall time of the workshop lasts 3 to 4 hours, which The classroom lecture is only an hour, however it is dispersed throughout the class as we go straight into demonstrative and hands-on ear candling so people can get comfortable in doing it for themselves.

This is a Hands-On Class ~ Everyone will Ear Candle Someone!


COST: $60/Person; $90/Couple (Married or Friends) $30/Deposit

Please RSVP your Intention – Adults Only or Children – 16 or older!

Cost will be same whether you bring your own candles/cones or not.

REGISTRATIONS or DEPOSITS PAYABLE via PayPal found on our website: via our Donate Tab or send a Check or Money Order Payable to
