New York, USA
We had nine very dedicated dear ones in our Anchor Group, plus three other dear ones who were also very committed, but due to illness or living further away were not able to make the journey at that hour, and so connected from their homes.
We started at 3 am New York time with a smudging ceremony, and then formed a sacred circle sharing our Starry Names and Mudras. We did the GO! and opened in the One Heart, and connected with Solara, the Master Cylinder, and all the Anchor Groups as One Being. We embraced them in the Lotus Heart and expanded the beautiful Lotus within our hearts to include all of New York City, the country, and the whole world. We read the locations of the Anchor Groups, and people who were connecting with us from elsewhere; I shared the 8th Gate information and passed around photos of Mallorca to help us with connecting. Then our two very strong Guardians, Amaliah and Lee, took their positions.
Our first dance was of course the Starry Processional. We could imagine all the Anchor Groups and Master Cylinder dancing together as One. During past Activations, our Anchor Group has always passed through all of the previous Gates again as the energy has always been very sacred and powerful, and we have felt very much in the here and now doing this. So we passed through the First and Second Gates and were about to get in position for the Third Gate when Lee said she felt the 8th Gate energies starting to come in and that we should focus on that. Also, the experience of going through the first two Gates did not feel as strong as it usually has in the past.
Irael led us in a beautiful meditation to connect with our One True Loves. After a short break we aligned again with the Master Cylinder, and wondered what they were doing at that moment. Feeling it was the beautiful and subtle Lotus Dance, we started dancing it too, and felt the 8th Gate energies coming in more strongly.
Then it was time to create our 8th Gate and pass through it - to leap into the River of Love! We had previously done some personal clearing at a preparatory meeting, but I spoke again about releasing our fears, any feelings or beliefs of unworthiness or doubts that we cannot have or do not deserve what we truly want in our lives, and we sent all that into the Violet Flame of Purification and Transmutation.
I have a very long curtain scarf in a beautiful shade of blue, and before the Activation I had a vision about using it to represent the River of Love; so I brought out the scarf and enfolded it around all of us in our sacred circle. Our circle started rotating to the Sacred Spiral Dance music, which was perfect for the flowing dance-like steps. We focused on receiving and anchoring the 8th Gate energies of Truest Love and Partnership in New York City and throughout the Earth. I felt so much joy and ecstasy, feeling really warm, almost hot, energy coming into the top of my head like a tube or funnel (but much warmer and more intense than I have felt in the past).
We had two people hold the long scarf which they moved like a flowing, undulating river while each person, one at a time, danced in a figure 8 and then walked with great focus and intent into the River of Love; it was truly wonderful! Then another two would become the gateway with the scarf. This was really so beautiful; it was like we were dancing with our One True Loves and/or with whatever we want in our lives, the fulfillment of our wildest dreams, and were really embraced and immersed in the River of Love under the scarf. I personally felt like I was dancing with my One True Love, and with my True Self, and moving into a joyful New Life. Some felt that the 8th Gate was the most beautiful 11:11 Gate we have had so far.
After this we joined again in our circle of Love. I had wanted to do the Dance of the Elements but it felt like we were complete with what we needed to do, so we didn’t. We must have finished our ceremony by about 7:30 am. We took photos and played some love songs we had brought.
A few of our group sent me some brief comments regarding some of what they had experienced. Amaliah says she felt the energies were incredibly powerful and different than those of previous Gates. As a Guardian, she felt so charged and that she had truly become a pillar of light. She felt the 8th Gate energies running through her spine like electricity and shivering throughout the body. After she went home, she felt re-borne, her heart expanded with all-encompassing Love like never before and she found herself looking at the world with a brand new perspective – more fully aware of the synchronicities/coincidences that are happening, and very thankful to the Universe.
Oriolla said the ceremony was very intense for her, and exhilarating. As she was connecting from her home she had asked for Guardians to come and help her, which they did. She also experienced a distinct pop in her head like something was happening there - this happened three times.
Solia says she was all ready to leave for YJ’s when she began feeling very ill and weak.... she fell asleep and later woke up feeling full of energy, knowing she had connected with us on a soul level.
Irael said that since the 8th Gate Activation she has needed more sleep, and has periods of very accelerated vibrations moving through her. She also feels a definite positive shift has taken place within her, which is causing her to live outside the box.
We send much gratitude, and waves of the most precious, beautiful, Truest Love to Solara and the Master Cylinder, to all the Anchor Groups, to all beings on this sacred Earth, and to beloved Mother Earth herself.... Amara and the New York City Anchor Group in the River of Love
