The Mayan New Year
5 Wind/IK becomes the new Year Bearer as we celebrate the beginning of the new Haab/Chol’Ab’ cycle. The Haab approximates the solar calendar of 365 days and includes 18 months of 20’days each, and a 19th month of 5 days, known as the Wayeb. The Haab and Tzolk’in calendars are closely linked in their influence upon Human. The Haab marks the equinoxes, solstices, and the planetary cycles of the Earth.
5 Wind/IK was born in the Galactic Week (trecena) of Flint/ETZNAB, making this the over-riding influence throughout the next year. White Day Signs symbolize the North and a place of Refinement by Divine Wisdom.

Opening of the 999 Vortex: Energy to Release the Old and Step Into the New
On the 9th September (as well as on the 18th & 27th September 2016) we are bathed in a cosmic soup of 999 energy.
This 999 vibration is a powerful symbol and energetic wave of potential that inspires you to leave behind that old version of yourself and step into an awakened, enlightened and luminscent essence of your Soul Potential. As we allow that which no longer serves, we are open to a brand new beginning.

As regular readers know, I’ve long recommended eating a diet of mostly RAW food to stay optimally healthy. This is because living raw foods contain the biophoton light energy your body needs.
Every living organism emits biophotons. It is thought that the higher the level of light energy a cell emits, the greater its vitality and the potential for the transfer of that energy to the individual who consumes it.

Umoja, Kenya-The Village Where Men Are BANNED
Women of the Samburu Region of Kenya have created a model of a Matriarchal community to claim their freedom and right to be. Begun in 1990 by Rebecca Lolosoli, Umoja is a haven for women and girls who have suffered sexual and domestic violence, rape and FGM.
As they celebrate 25 Years, their reach has expanded their community to provide education for children beyond their community. They have become a Light of new thinking.

The Life Cycle(s) of a Monarch Butterfly
Monarch butterflies are considered to be among the most beautiful of all butterflies, and are considered the “king” of the butterflies, hence the name “monarch”. Monarch butterflies go through four stages during one life cycle, and through four generations in one year. The four stages of the monarch butterfly life cycle are the egg, the larvae (caterpillar), the pupa (chrysalis), and the adult butterfly. The four generations are actually four different butterflies going through these four stages during one year until it is time to start over again with stage one and generation one.
In February and March, the final generation of hibernating monarch butterflies comes out of hibernation to find a mate. They then migrate north and east in order to find a place to lay their eggs. This starts stage one and generation one of the new year for the monarch butterfly.
In March and April the eggs are laid on milkweed plants. They hatch into baby caterpillars, also called the larvae. It takes about four days for the eggs to hatch. Then the baby caterpillar doesn’t do much more than eat the milkweed in order to grow. After about two weeks, the caterpillar will be fully-grown and find a place to attach itself so that it can start the process of metamorphosis. It will attach itself to a stem or a leaf using silk and transform into a chrysalis. Although, from the outside, the 10 days of the chrysalis phase seems to be a time when nothing is happening, it is really a time of rapid change. Within the chrysalis the old body parts of the caterpillar are undergoing a remarkable transformation, called metamorphosis, to become the beautiful parts that make up the butterfly that will emerge. The monarch butterfly will emerge from the pupa and fly away, feeding on flowers and just enjoying the short life it has left, which is only about two to six weeks. This first generation monarch butterfly will then die after laying eggs for generation number two.
The second generation of monarch butterflies is born in May and June, and then the third generation will be born in July and August. These monarch butterflies will go through exactly the same four stage life cycle as the first generation did, dying two to six weeks after it becomes a beautiful monarch butterfly.
The fourth generation of monarch butterflies is a little bit different than the first three generations. The fourth generation is born in September and October and goes through exactly the same process as the first, second and third generations except for one part. The fourth generation of monarch butterflies does not die after two to six weeks. Instead, this generation of monarch butterflies migrates to warmer climates like Mexico and California and will live for six to eight months until it is time to start the whole process over again.
It is amazing how the four generations of monarch butterflies works out so that the monarch population can continue to live on throughout the years, but not become overpopulated. Mother Nature sure has some cool ways of doing things, doesn’t she?
June 1, 2016 – Flint/ETZNAB Trecena Butterfly Inspiration
The Migration of the Monarch Butterfly crossed the Great Plains of Kansas where I was raised. Their migration is miraculous in that at least 5 generations are involved in making the annual trip. The goal of each generation is to complete the work of the all.
Starting in September and October, eastern/northeastern populations migrate from southern Canada and the United States to overwintering sites in central Mexico where they arrive around November. They start the return trip in March, arriving around July. No individual butterfly completes the entire round trip; female monarchs lay eggs for the next generation during the northward migration and at least five generations are involved in the annual cycle.
Typical Lifespan: Most monarch butterflies do not live more than a few weeks. There are about 3 to 5 generations born each spring and summer and most of the offspring do not live beyond 5 weeks. The lone exception is the last generation born at the end of the summer.
The last generation of each year is the over-wintering generation that must make the journey back to Mexico. Rather than breeding immediately, the over-wintering monarchs fly back to Mexico and stay there until the following spring. In the early spring, they fly north to the southern United States and breed. Over-wintering monarch butterflies can live upwards of 8 months.
