Photos from the solstice
This petition link has passed 700 signatures, which is fantastic, but it still needs more. The more signatures it gets, the closer to my goal of 10,000 signatures I am, and the closer we all are to changing our consciousness and getting animal rights and protections encoded in Canada's constitution. This is the latest posting. To date I have posted this petition 17 times now, 15 times at the above site and twice at All in all, I have over 5,000 signatures combined from all the petition postings. To be exact, I have 5, 573 signatures, I'm more than half way there!

Here are some images from last night's freeze-a-thon aka The Kensington Market Winter Solstice thang. It was supposed to go from 6:30-9, but at 8pm the parade just dissipated and done. I wasn't upset, I was just frozen. First Nations' art and music were out in full force. What I loved the most was the First Nations' musicians were just young guys, and one woman! They were humble as humble, wearing jeans, caps and maintaining their traditions, which is so wonderful to see-- that young people are interested in their culture. I love hearing the singing when the men do their drumming circle, the singing; the loud wailing along with the heavy, steady drum, just pierces my heart.
So, check out my photos , and some of the full moon, too.

How beautiful is that? I can only imagine the amount of time it took to make those people, whose legs and arms moved.

So beautiful!
The moon!

Total Lunar Eclipse

Happy Solstice to you!
The Winter Solstice marks the official a) end of Autumn/ beginning of Winter,
longest night of the year/shortest day (least amount of daylight), will also be a Full Lunar Eclipse, the first in 372 years, or so says National Geographic.

If you're over in my neck of the woods , the eclipse will really get going tomorrow at 2 am. Why do we use that expression, "neck of the woods", why not, belly of the woods, or perhaps head..why not? Where did the expression even come from? We could start saying "..if you're ever in my head of the forest..." English is so arbitrary.

Well, have a great solstice. Shed any baggage you're toting around, cuz that's what full moon's are great at..helping you shed..and having such a big deal one so close to the end of the year s pretty significant. This Moon is in gemini, btw.

My angel card from Findhorn's website is creativity.Check it out my whole " I and I will see you through", in spades!
Findhorn is an intentional community in the north of Scotland. An amazing place. Eileen is one of the founders of the place.

Eileen Caddy's Daily Guidance: Guidance for 21 December

Learn to live beyond yourself and your own strength and ability, so that those people around you can see with their own eyes that it is I working in and through you. In this way, those souls who have no faith and belief will come to know Me, not by many words, but by a life direct and demonstrated. Unless you live in this way, you are not acknowledging that I AM your guide and companion and that you have dedicated your life completely to Me and to My service. You have to take your feet off the bottom and swim out into the deep unknown in absolute faith and confidence, knowing that no harm will befall you because I AM with you. You will never know whether it all is so unless you are willing to do something about it. Cease playing safe and let Me show you what can happen when you let go and allow Me to take over and use you as I will.

Courage and risk-taking are 2 qualities of very creative and successful people and organizations.

Courage; from French coeur, heart. the last line of the " daily guidance" says it all,"Cease playing safe and let Me show you what can happen when you let go and allow Me to take over and use you as I will." In other words, leap with your heart and let the Universe catch you. It's scary stuff, trusting completely, but if we don't, we stay stuck in "safety", never having taken chances.

Happy Leaping, and wishing!

I wish for...

Love and wishes...

Both are exciting, both make you feel happy and joyful and both require a totally open heart!

Wishing, like loving, requires investments of energy -one's personal energy- into the larger pool of available, universal energy flow.

Both are very powerful ways to put your emotions and hopes into realities.

Wishing is allowing the seemingly impossible to become possible. When we wish, we ask for help from a higher place. Wishes are magick. The magick is whispering our wish, letting it go, with an open heart; like a dandelion seed we blow into the wind, and then, like a boomerang, it returns to us as a wish that's come true. It is so exciting!

Wishes are like secret pacts with the Universe. You can ask for something on a grand scale; on a heart-scale and, as long as you keep your heart open, you will get your wish. It feels so joyful when serendipitous energy flow works to bring about your wish!

The difference between wishing and merely hoping is that when you wish you are asking for magick, and you are asking from your whole self; your heart, and, you are not just wanting something, you are creating a threshold of intention which is bigger than just yourself, it expands upwards, sidewards, perpendicularly, horizontally, vertically, any way it needs to in order to connect to the flow of energy needed to connect you to your wish. Your Heart's Desire.

"I and I will see you through"

When you just hope, you have removed the ineffable qualities that comes from sending out a wish to the Universe; made up of equal parts faery dust starlight pure energy, and joy!

Also, when you just hope you're not trusting, or believing in your self/Self ,or the
Universe, the message that the energy flow of just hope sends is : "I guess/ maybe I'll get it, but I don't really deserve it"; it's like whispering your wish into your dandelion seed, but instead of blowing the seed, and letting your wish travel, you fearfully hold on to it; because you're not sure if it will fly, or if your wish was stupid ,or if it will happen, or , or , or....

Open your hand, so you can open your heart, because wishing is beautiful!

Wikileaks: leak the truth about animal torture!

So, what about these Wikileaks? I want shit leaked about the animal abuse that happens at the hands of governments; NASA, for instance, uses monkeys in different types of experiments. I want the truth to come out about what happens in slaughterhouses, and commercial farms. I want the OSPCA and the ASPCA to leak their horror stories to our man Assange, so the greater public can finally, hopefully realize how sickeningly cruel governments are.

I want "laboratories" that practice animal torture, in "scientific experiments" paid for by governmental agencies such as doctors organizations and health boards, to leak their truths about how pregnant animals uterus's are cut in half and tobacco smoke is pushed into the womb, in order to be able to print the fucking warning label on cigarette boxes.

Dogs are still killed in experiments for cigarette companies . In case anybody still thinks it is a good idea to smoke during pregnancy, monkeys at the federally funded Oregon Regional Primate Research Center are confined in small, barren metal cages, while their fetuses are exposed to nicotine. The baby monkeys, once born, will be killed and examined.
( From my website

Animals are used as living battering rams in every capacity inhumanly possible. They are used as impact "dummies" to check car safety (General Motors); this is called "live testing" and has purportedly ended, they are tested on to ensure our hands won't become sensitive to our dish soap, such as Ivory (Procter and Gamble) to vaccines and lipsticks.

Most humans still think they are entitled to assert their human-ness ..or evilness over the earth and the beings that inhabit it, and that we inhabit it with. Most people still justify using animals to test vaccines on, caging them, wearing their bodies and skins and coats, and eating their flesh , which has been killed in horrific ways.

It is crucial to question what we read, find out all the facts, and whose interests are being represented while still continuing to fight for the lives of our friends, the silent masses of torture victims in labs worldwide.
