The House of Meraia

spica

Spica (Alpha Virginis), brightest star in Virgo.

Dear All,

This year ‘has wings on’, and before April flies away completely, we’ll dedicate this post to the House of Meraia, the soul group which Ashura and I focus our light and energy from and through in this region of this galaxy. As Source Beings, like all of you reading this, we have soul expressions in multiple universes and galaxies, stars and planets, within various dimensions, but today we’ll speak from this particular ‘soul focus group’ which dwells in and radiates a concentrated flow of Resurrection light and Rebirthing energies. Also known as the House of Michael&Mary (Archangel Michael&Mother Mary), the hub of its Light in this region can be seen in the great Bow of the Mother that runs from the twin stars Alcor&Mizar in Ursa Major (the Bear constellation/Big Dipper), where the Alectian and Alexian star families live, through the angelic centrepoint of Arcturus, to the star Spica in the ‘hip of the Virgin’ (Virgo constellation).

Spica from Latin means ‘ear’, the ear of grain symbolizing the ancient Mother Goddess of bountiful seeding and growth of life, Ceres/Demeter…and the feminine spiral/funnel from which the external and inner spirals of the ear are reflected in our 3D forms, the spiral which receives the ‘tones of life’, in both a physical and higher vibrational sense: ‘Spica speaks to the open ear’. Spica in Hebrew is Zerah, meaning ‘seed’…the Seed of the Virgin/Virgo. Can you feel the deeper metaphor of the Virgin Mary’s conception of Jesus, that she conceived by ‘hearing the word of God‘ through the Lily of Archangel Gabriel (which in some versions of the story, he touched to her ear), and the birth and resurrection pathway initiated from that hearing – sacred sound of Source funnelling into and through the divine feminine spiral?

Spica and Arcturus also form a right-angled triangle with Regulus, the ‘heart star’ of Leo,  the lion constellation, called the Spring Triangle:

02_starstruck613.adapt.590.1

This triune ‘right angle’ mirrors the two soul group streams that merged to form the House of Meraia; Angelic souls and Leonine souls, the galactic Houses of Asha and Ara that merged to become one House, which created a third energy, the Meraia, from the angels of Asha (energies of eternal rebirth like a phoenix from the ashes) and the leonines of Ara (energies of infinite life creation and restoration). The merged soul group energy pools together the flows of creation and rebirth into resurrection and ascension, the golden and the white lights blended and shielded in the Mother’s Bow of Blue….which is expressed in the sacred geometric form of the Vesica Piscis:

Untitled-4

From Sananda: ‘The Ash and the Ar together make a Star’ (Ashar), and this star is of both the 6-point star energy of harmony and bliss, through gratitude and appreciation, and the 7-point star energy of joyful love through the flow of divine grace. Together, the 6+7 bring through the 13th dimensional pure Light spiral that we call ‘Ascension’, because it realigns life to the original ‘goldenprint of Love’, through the ring of 12 dimensions, 12 rays, 12 signs etc. The 6 and the 7 can be seen in the Flower of Life, which forms or ‘flowers’ from the vesica piscis, and returns to it, and in the 7-point star which we have shown before in purple light across the Meri’Ashar (Mary’s Star, our lightship), and which is now in golden light across the ship, in full resurrection mode:

Through the divine feminine mandorla/portal (vesica) swims the fish (piscis), to which the symbol of the fish for Sananda in his Jesus form is metaphysically connected. Jesus as the ‘Lion of God’, Archangel Ariel – meaning ‘Archangel Lion of God’, Ashtar’s golden lightship, the Phoenix, and his Twin Flame Immara (Isis)’s lightship the Sophia/White Phoenix, all show aspects of the meeting and merging of the Ara&Asha in the House of Michael&Mary, in the blue light of protection. Archangel Michael flows the divine masculine blue sword of Truth that shears away darkness/distorted light, and Mary spreads the divine feminine blue cloak, depicted since medieval times as the ‘Protecting Veil’…through the blue safely flows the light of golden-white. ‘God moved upon the waters’, and through the feminine waters, ‘Mare’ (Ma-Ray), Latin for sea, flows the third energy of the Divine Child, as the fish. From Sananda: ‘Through the Mother comes the Son, and through the Son comes the Mother.’

There is another key star formation we’ll include here, called the Great Diamond or the Diamond of Virgo, as its base point is at Spica, with Arcturus and Denebola (tail of Leo) to the sides, and Cor Caroli, alpha star of Canes Venatici (the ‘hunting dogs’ of the herdsman Bootes), in relation to the ‘Arcturian Diamond’ input into this area, and to the constellation nestled within the protecting diamond light, Coma Berenices. This constellation is named after a historical figure, who dedicated her hair ‘to all the gods’. Hair has many symbolic meanings, often connected with ‘fate’, such as the belief of karma being carried in the hair, subtle connections of hair to the ‘otherworld’, and to the ancient Triple Goddess represented as the Three Fates, the spinner, weaver and cutter of the cloth. Berenice dedicating her hair to the gods, within the pure protecting light of the Great Diamond, symbolizes uplifting the fate of the ‘mortal coil’ (limited DNA), resurrecting it through eternal light of the gods (the Divine essence within us all), and is, we could say, a storehouse of strands of high light, in the Diamond of Virgo – seen as both maiden and mother. ‘Through the Mother comes the Daughter, and through the Daughter comes the Mother.’

The Diamond comes through the Vesica Piscis, as the Divine Feminine shield:

Vesica_Feminine_Shield

This is the basis and underlying energy of a practice given by Archangel Michael a few years ago, the Blue Diamond of Protection, which you can read on this page…and feel free to use it!

As in the heavens, so on the Earth; this planet has particular places (flow lines and node points that are part of its natural network of light/life force) where the Meraia are closely connected, such as the St Michael&Mary Leyline (mapped through Britain, but it runs as a ‘sine wave’ all around the planet)…and these alignments are gradually being cleared of blockages and disturbances, restored to their higher light flows (thank you, teams on Earth, within the Earth and above)…but of course, we can all connect with beings of highest Love, including our own higher soul aspects, from wherever we are simply by asking with love in our hearts. Remember your Inner Heart is your natural divine meeting place/space, and your deepest, purest place for healing and creating in merge with your soul’s purpose.

Here are some recent photos through which the Meraia energies can be seen and felt ‘in action’: firstly on March 20th this was the sky over my house before and after a meditation connected with clearing and relighting planetary flow lines. Before the meditation, the sky was thick with chemtrails that combined with smoke to form this heavy blanket:

After meditating and connecting with Immara and Ashtar, and the phoenix rebirth energies, the focus and reflection in the sky overhead could be seen as ‘white phoenix’ angelic forms in the clouds, neutralizing toxins and dissolving the blanket:

And a beautiful greeting and energy alignment on Easter Saturday from close family members, with white phoenix energies, divine feminine, the white lily of Archangel Gabriel, and leonine energies. This began with a little ‘walking angel’ cloud, with a ship above it, and Ashura’s silver-white pod-ship coming in (right-hand top of the frame):

Followed by this beautiful ‘cloud burst’ above the treetops, with the ‘trinity-petaled white lily’ opening in the centre of phoenix flame:

On its side, you can see the outline of a dove, flying into the open petals of the lily, with Ashura’s little silver-white ship just beneath the cloud (bottom of centre frame):

So we’ll end this post with a request/intention I use every day as part of my morning meditation:

Beloved Archangel Michael & Mother Mary, may you keep your protecting blue cloak of light around me throughout this day and night, and help me to stay in highest truth, clarity, discernment, steadfastness, courage, faith and joy. I love you, thank you.

We’ll share more about Virgo, Spica and the path of Jupiter in relation to planetary ascension soon. We love and greet you as souls of Source, lights of transformation….as are you,

Joanna&Ashura, &Tanabor  ❤

Leonines & Carians: from the sky with Love

Dear friends,

Following the major ‘light beam’ that was sent through a planetary alignment on May 28, to loosen what we could term the ‘Set/Hades energy’, you may have noticed both a general rise in ‘craziness’ in collective happenings and control-oriented narratives in mainstream and alternate communities, plus a rise in collective conscious decision-making, reflected in 3D, for the benefit and well-being of humanity, animals and the planet. The polarization of third density continues to increase, which is part of the process toward a tipping point of higher consciousness in both individuals and communities.

If you’re experiencing mild-to-wild oscillations in your own emotional, mental and/or physical energies, there’s a practice at the end of this post which I’ve been using for a few days, which is ‘heaven-sent’. To feel in deeper with the beam that has come in strong since May 28, you can read (my twin soul) Bareld’s message from Ashtar about the ‘Pentawave’ here. The planet was given much stabilization through this period, with a 7.8 and 8.5 near/under Japan on May 30 (without damage) thanks to star family, our Agarthan/Inner Earth friends, the elemental beings, and those on Earth who held the Rose energy and spread peace through the grid at that time. Thank you all so much.

Bareld and I have both seen/felt the presence of more ships in our skies. On May 26, Bareld saw a white, elongated diamond-shaped ship above his home in the Netherlands. That night, I took these photos of the same ship with accompanying orbs, from my home in Australia. You can see the upper ‘triangle’ of the diamond-shaped ship, cloaked, passing in front of the Moon.

Here’s the largest of the orbs, upper left of the Moon, a projection in orb form of the ‘group consciousness on board the ship’, mostly of Carians (birdlike beings, also called avians by some, although we will note here that Carians themselves don’t use that term).

Here’s a close-up, firstly, unaltered from the original photo, and secondly, with brightness and contrast enhanced, so you can see the beings within it more clearly.

For those not used to reading/sensing orbs, in the next photo I’ve outlined a few of the beings within it. You can see a prominent humanoid blue face in the centre foreground, with a large blue owl slightly behind/right hand side. In front of the owl is a small feline being, and above the owl is a white hawk face looking forward. To the left a green-blue face can be seen, with smaller faces in front of it. Remember, the orb is a luminous representation that symbolizes their soul energies.

AiShii’Te’Ra’s face, above a blue owl.

The white hawk-like Carian seen in the top of the orb introduced itself as AiShii’Te’Ra, a 9D counterpart to Devin (High Arch of the Leonine beings), who has a soul aspect well-known on Earth as Heru’ur in ancient Egypt, whom the Greeks called Horus (Horus the Younger). It is a deep joy for us to see/feel the reunion, repair, and realignment of Carian, Leonine and Angelic energies, with many Carian beings now returned to, and assisting with, the Ashtar Command/Intergalactic Confederation. Along with other work, their presence will in time supersede ‘disclosure narratives’ that blur the truth of who/what they are, since certain beings have sought to tweak humanity’s view of Carians and distort their perception with misinformation. It is vital to centre in your own heart and let yourself SEE from there. Rather than seeing discernment as using your intellect/analysis, which is susceptible to ‘suggestions’ both conscious and subconscious, always focus in your heart, the seat of your soul, breathe into it, pure love, and see/feel from there without attachment, expectations or wanting. The way of heart-viewing can reveal the true nature of all energies to you.

At present, the ships over my area are mostly staying in the cloud cover – of which there has been plenty, with the Perth hills being chemtrailed constantly. Diamonds, discs and triangles have been ‘outlining’ in the clouds every day. The ship below, triangle-shaped, became just visible while I was focusing on clearing the sky, on June 5. The trailing, from two planes, started as below (taken from my street, June 5).

DSCF6198

As the sky filled, I felt and saw a Sirian Leonine ship (6D elongated triangle shape) arrive in what was by then widespread thin cloud cover (faint outline, upper centre of photo).

DSCF6200

The ship sent a ripple of ‘sound’, which I heard internally as a long, rolling rrrr, like a non-stop purr. You can ‘see’ the ‘sound’ as long horizontal bands across/through the chemical clouds, this was how it visualized, then the sky looked/felt as if it turned into a whirlpool or vortex, and the clouds cleared.

DSCF6202

Again, on June 9, after detoxing the sky, this time a disc-shaped hole appeared above my house (this was the Shem Arua which was then captained by my Twin Flame, Ashura, and overhead most of the time).

My ongoing experiencing with star family is both internal/telepathic, and visual, which can be sightings of ships, orbs, projections of beings close to me, or being guided to certain words, music, images or text, and pictures or symbols in the sky, reflected in 3D forms. This way of connecting is all-inclusive, natural as breathing, and truly available to everyone on Earth who connects in the heart, with their Higher Self in unconditional love and trust, and has the will and perseverance to clear all blocking energies. Our star brothers and sisters are here for all, not just the few. It’s a matter of converging our energies, meeting in the middle, allowing us to Be and act together. I see and hear a lot in the awakening community ‘We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.’ This is true. Just remember that the we is inclusive on a very expansive scale. Instead of thinking ‘us and them’ (duality) about the assisting ETs, feel into the deeper unity, the wholeness of that ‘we’, relax and allow yourself to become a magnet for all that is of love, peace and unity in the universe.

Below is a new practice, which I’ve found great for stabilizing during this week, in tune with higher tones/frequencies, allowing them to come pure, straight and uninterrupted through the Soul Star Chakra to very gently purify and clear residual fear-based energies from all chakras.

 

The Rose Tube Practice

Sit comfortably upright, breathe gold into your heart centre, and put a Golden Apple of light around your auric field. Open your chakras from base to crown, including the two new heart chakras (sacred heart, between the solar plexus and heart, and higher heart, between heart and throat). See/feel your Earth Star Chakra (below your feet) opening, as a white star, then your Heart Star (heart centre chakra), then your Soul Star Chakra (above your head). See/feel a pillar of Light descending from Source, through your Soul Star, down through all your chakras, and to Gaia’s Core. 

Now feel this pillar as an air tube, your tube of prana, Life’s vital force, and feel this divine air flowing through you as you breathe in and out deeply, until you feel very relaxed. Then visualize a Tuberose flower, like this:

tuberose_double_flower_form_3_clumps

Hold the Tuberose in your Soul Star, then see/feel this flower slowly descending through your Crown, Pineal, Throat, Higher Heart, Heart, Sacred Heart, Solar Plexus, Sacral, Base, and down to your Earth Star. Let this flower’s purifying, clearing frequency gently fill your air tube and settle throughout your mind, emotions and physical body. Hold this seeing/feeling for as long as comfortable. Relax and feel your higher dimensional Essence permeating your whole Being. 

With love and thanks to Archangel Gabriel for this practice.

By the way, if visualization isn’t easy for you, holding the intention with Love is enough. Or in this case, the scent of the Tuberose is enough to open your Soul Star, so you may like to source some Tuberose Oil. It’s actually one of the most intense flower fragrances on the planet. Many years ago I read of Tuberose opening the 10th Chakra (in Flower Essences and Vibrational Healing, by Gurudas, channelled from Hilarion), but didn’t know what the 10th Chakra was. However, if you use the nine chakra system in your body, with the three heart chakras, then the 10th Chakra is the Soul Star.

After doing this practice, a beautiful vertical ‘air tube’ was represented by Ashura over the house among leftover chemtrails (Tuberose is closely connected to our energy).

DSCF6254

It’s message is: when our breathing IN is pure, in Love, all else shifts away from our inner space. Our pillar is kept pure, within the spiral of the Rose. And the Rose of the Tube, the Tuberose, holds in its form the shape of an angel’s trumpet.

Love to you all. Namaste,

Joanna & Ashura ❤

 

Easter Sky Interlude

Dear friends,

Before going ‘in deep’ with Venus and the Venusian connection to the shift in frequencies here on/with Gaia, I’d like to give a couple of short updates, firstly from the sky here, and secondly from the beech grove (a ‘micro-node’ of the crystalline heart grid) in my garden. They are interconnected, and I’ll start with the sky of the last two days, April 4th and 5th, the lunar eclipse and Easter.

In the sky, the divine father and mother energies of Source symbolized a global preparation for receiving the ‘child’ Christ light, the re-newal. In the afternoon, for a few minutes, the sun behind thin clouds appeared as a rectangular pillar of blue-white light, with a white-gold V shape on top of it. The V stands for Vega and the first federation in this galaxy, the Federation of Lyra (of which Vega is the alpha star) and the Ashtar Command insignia. The Y stands for the masculine energy (as in Y chromosome), and the male ‘pillar’ and the female ‘V’ in union. The blue-white pillar of light also represents the energy of Avyon (pronounced Aye-on), first leonine and human planet, of the star Vega, translated into Earth energies as Iun in ancient Egypt, and Avalon in the ancient west. So it also symbolizes the energy of the ‘return of Avalon’.

All of this beamed from the Sun for a few minutes. I took photos, but the camera didn’t pick up the frequencies clearly. Later that evening, however, I was able to photograph the lunar eclipse, although as you’ll see in the picture it was hazed by a covering of cloud. Here, the mother energy of the bowl, the cradle and cup, was perfectly represented in a ‘vertical eclipse’…meaning as the Moon was eclipsed from above, what could be seen was a horizontal crescent/bowl. Here it is, with a beautiful light green Orb above it to the left. Green represents the heart chakra, renewal and healing.

The next day, Easter, following the clear ‘signs’ of the day before, on Sunday the sky was thickly clouded. I heard many planes overhead, not on the usual flight paths, and by the afternoon the sky was striped and zigzagged with dark-coloured trails. Next, the sky turned into an ocean of rolling energies…you can see the shifting, moving and rearranging reflected in the clouds below. This all happened so fast, it was breathtaking, like watching a time-lapse film; except it was present, singing in my heart.

The planes returned again overnight, and all day today, Easter Monday, a strong wind has been blowing, clearing the air, and there are now four days of rain forecast, so we have a super cleanse coming! 🙂

Giving thanks now, to star family, the sylphs, my own higher soul aspects, and beloved Gaia. The cradle of Life keeps being cleared, to receive the Light of Love deeper. ❤

Love to you All, cradling the Light.

PS: While writing this, a friend rang, and into our conversation came the Threefold Flame – reminding me to say here, to remember the Threefold Flame in the Heart, holding and lighting it there, if you need help stabilizing the mother-father-child unifying trinity energy. Which exists in all life, we are just remembering how that merge IS in higher dimensions, and reconnecting our ‘separated’ ego-mind with the feeling and the knowing of the primordial trinity.

66175_763070090382995_6759779646569664466_n - Copy

This goes hand in hand with balancing the four elements within us, the yin/mother elements of earth and water, with the yang/father elements of air and fire. Through the unity and merge of the four comes the fifth element – ether – fifth dimension. Relax. Open. Love. Trust. Rise.

Lights in the Sky Part 3: The Ibis flies

Dear friends,

Today I’ll share a happening from two weeks ago, which began with hearing two planes flying back and forth overhead early in the morning. For the last two months, this area has been chemtrailed almost daily, but never with the planes so low overhead. I’ve seen scores of trails dissipated by sylphs or converted into harmless thin wispy clouds by lightships over my home.

On this occasion, December 24, 2014, it was the third day in a row chemtrail planes had flown over between 3- 5am. On going outside, several ‘layers’ of converted wispy cloud patches were already visible. The Shem Arua was behind a large cloud-bank, and one of the chemtrailers flew right underneath it and sprayed a trail.

DSCF4651 - Copy

This news report from March, 2014, came to mind, about a plane flying 23 kms north of Perth airport (about 15 kms from here). The pilot and co-pilot reported seeing a large cylindrical silver object/craft in front of them – and the pilot had to change course to avoid a collision, missing it by about 100 ft. (The official aviation report can be read here) At the time, I felt that plane was a chemtrailer in disguise, and the craft stationed in its path a clear warning to desist. After that incident, I noted far fewer trails sprayed for a few months, then the planes started again. It seems ‘they’ realized the galactics would warn and deter them, but wouldn’t harm them.

While not feeling at risk from the trails, I know for souls living in this area, as around the world, this is part of a last-ditch ‘doping’ effort (under the guise of weather modification/geo-engineering/solar radiation management) to prevent Earth humans waking to unity consciousness – and to what is really in the skies above them (ships of the Ashtar Command/Intergalactic Confederation fleet). I called on the Shem Arua to clear the planes away. It appeared in its 4D lightform, as blue concentric rings, on top of one of the chemtrails.

This was followed by Ashura standing in angelic form further along the trail, with green light flowing from him (there are lion faces in the cloud behind/above him).

DSCF4654 - Copy

The trail was transformed into wispy clouds, in the form of a dove with upraised wings. Well, it was Christmas. 🙂

DSCF4652 - Copy - Copy

For the next few hours the skies were quiet, before another pair of planes arrived. I connected in inner heart to the core of the Shem Arua and asked again for assistance. The two planes disappeared instantly, there was no sound of them, and did not return. I felt they had been relocated, not sure where. What followed can be seen in the photos below. The Shem Arua was to the west of the Sun, and a single Ibis flew over the roof of the house and upward, east of the Sun.

This was the first and only time I’ve sighted an Ibis here, as they don’t live in the hills, but down on the swampy coastal plain area. However, Ibis is an energy of Ashtar (and his family) who was incarnate on Earth as Thoth in Atlantis and Egypt, symbolized as the Ibis-headed god. I first saw his projected energy form as a bird of white light circling a full Moon in early 2013, morphing between eagle, dove and ibis forms.

DSCF1428x - Copy

This time, his Ibis projection curved east up around the Sun, to meet the Shem Arua, which floated up and  over the Sun from the west, in unison. I say projection, even though this Ibis appeared as a 3D bird, because what I watched in 3D was the Ibis soar away to the east…but downloading the photos I’d taken showed something different.

P1020363

They showed the Ibis having curved further west toward the Shem Arua, the opposite direction to what I had visually seen, and coming to a standstill facing the ship with its wings half-open. After that it vanished, and didn’t appear in any more shots. This was a clear message, and reminder, that where we focus from is what we see. My vibration had dropped, because of allowing myself to get rattled by the chemtrails, instead of staying completely calm in love and peace, in my heart centre. Ashtar sent this beautiful reminder of you see according to your vibration, and if you wish to see the Light of higher dimensions, stay in centre…or your viewing will ‘veer off’ at an angle.

Ashura sends this message from the Shem Arua:

Look to that which Eclipses Sun and Moon, call forth that which the Heart already knows. The Bow is strung, the Arrow ready. The Cube unfolds, when the Heart is steady. Anchor with Gaia, breathe the Grace into your centre, Light your Bow, receive the new dawn, its scent (it sent) A Rose, Arrows of Love. We are with you All, in joy!

(NB: Where Ashura says, Light your Bow, he is referring to the ‘bow’ or ‘arch’ formed by the the pituitary, pineal and well of dreams chakras. See the Practices page if you’re new to this site, and to all, remember the peony rose as a visualization for the brain stem/well of dreams chakra. It helps!)

Arnap, as the ancient Assyrian deity Assur, with the Bow and lily/rose-headed Arrow.

Ashura/Arnap, as the ancient Assyrian deity Ashur, with the Bow and flowering lily-headed Arrow.

I’ll end this post with a ‘vision’ from Ivan Silovic (given in The Vision Alignment Project) which sums up ‘calling forth that which the Heart already knows’:

Be there. Go there now and never leave. Imagine that your dreams have already come true. Live your life from that mindset. Predicate your behaviour on that reality, not on the illusions that now surround you. Filter every thought, question, and answer from there. Let your focus shift and be born again – because dwelling from, not upon, the space you want to inherit is the fastest way to change absolutely everything.

When we let go old mental and emotional security blankets (disguised limitations) and focus through the Heart, we experience how Source is reflecting to us constantly that we are loved, safe, connected, held and guided, via whatever forms most easily connect us to our highest good, the highest good of all Life. Enjoy, my friends, let your inspiration flow, and see how the universe responds, always embracing you.

Namaste ❤
