Today in the early morning (1:32am PST) the world witnessed a total lunar eclipse on the winter solstice. This phenomenal event took place for the 1st time since 1638 and won't happen again until 2096. When I think about that date- I realize that I will not be alive here on Earth. My own mortality stares me right in the eye as I write this. But this is not a piece about mortality as much as it is about the true meaning of the life and death cycle. This is such a powerful energetic alignment and means so much for all of humanity. As a lightworker (yep said it out loud) we celebrate such an amazing event not only for the science of it but for the symbolic nature that it brings. This article from Suzanna Bowling of Times Square Daily explains it perfectly;
"The winter solstice marks the first day of winter and the beginning of the return of the sun. The cold deepens; the days lengthen and hope is re-born. In a strange way, the 2012 that was foretold is tonight mathematically speaking. In Mayan Calendars we have always been two years ahead. If you think in terms of numerology, 12/21/2010 adds up to 3+ 3+ 3 = 9, which is the number related to psychic awareness, intuition, prophecy and inherent wisdom.
The winters solstice that is happening tonight can be difficult externally for some, but also a powerful time for spiritual powers if we stay in our most positive highest energies! Meditate, pray, reflect!
During this time insight and lessons will come to us. This is a time about passion and fighting for truth and integrity, to remove darkness and ignorance with courage and wisdom.
Focus tonight on seeking a higher purpose in life. There is a lot of intensity, with Mercury retrograding. The reason the eclipse is so powerful is because everything is happening at the same moment in time. The sun (source of power, our soul) changes direction in the sky, the eclipse is extremely rare, the moon (the mind, emotional reflection of consciousness, intuition) the earth (the body, our physical presence) are all at once on the same plane! Body, mind and soul aligned at the same time! Earth, Moon and Sun -- aligned in the same trajectory. POWERFUL!"
My wonderfully inspiring friend Denise sent a belated birthday note to me the other day stating that this is my "Decade of Destiny." I believe her. So today I take a moment to celebrate myself, be in gratitude of the Supreme for a perfect heavenly orchestration and I fully release all energies of old that no longer serve me. I open my heart to bring in the new- the abundantly new gifts of love, forgiveness, awareness of my divine purpose, unparalleled courage to act, wealth, health and wholeness in my mind body and spirit. I can only hope that as I move into this new energy and way of being that I truly can represent heaven on earth.

Today is a historic moment for Hip Hop. Common is the host of the National Tree Lighting Ceremony for the White House this year! Anyone who knows me or for those who don't must know that I've been a fan of Common since his first album- Can I Borrow A Dollar? It's amazing to watch the evolution of people. I'm so grateful to have the privacy to evolve and grow without the scrutiny of the public eye. What a train wreck I would look like to most.
2 days ago, I watched President Obama address the news reporters after a significant piece of legislature was signed. It as all about extending the Bush era tax cuts to the wealthy and preventing tax increases for the poor and middle class. The gist of this was about the art of negotiation- compromise in order to reach the long term goal. Many political critics and public opinion criticize the President's actions over these past 2 years he's been in office. He is such a brilliant man and I LOVE the way he verbally slayed the reporter with poise and lightening sharp focus. I've always agreed with the Democratic party that he's had to spend his first 2 years in pure crisis mode. All focus has been directed toward fixing the troubles left by his predecessors and trying to stop the explosion of the country's economic meltdown. In his address, he mentioned this very thing. All of these issues being addressed while dealing with death threats on a daily bases. A statistic ran a couple of months ago that President Obama has received double the death threats of ALL 43 presidents combined in his first year of office!! It seems completely unreal. As I watch humanity's story unfold, it's sometimes difficult to see the beauty in the hearts of mankind. But then in those golden moments when you're fortunate to witness an inspiring speech, or hear a song that moves your soul or see someone give love to a complete stranger in an act of kindness; then hope is rekindled.
Oh yeah, Common. Super excited to see the program today! I just wish he could hit a b-boy stance just for the heck of it!
