Advanced Tantrika & Teacher

"Queen Love leads us in engaging with the immediate urgency of being alive. Her Tigress gait leads us thru the jungles of sacred abundance, by a masterful prowess to hunt for love in all of its glitter and fur, to jump and bite thru into the tender fire source of juice and joy. Again & again, leading thru the ancient gateways of the eternal lesson: to hunt and ravish our hearts desire until we have finally found our greatest belonging - ourselves, lying naked and delicately alive on the fertile ground of truth." Michael G


"Namaste, I want to once again express my deepest gratitude for your guidance to a beautiful far away space of such spiritual enlightenment. You have indeed drawn upon the vast pallet of metaphysical consciousness from the ancient world to compose a beautiful new world ritual that magically unifies all elements of it's diverse origins. Through your enlightened presence and creative improvisations at each sacred enactment... this beautiful ritual appears to evolve and lyrically transition through so many memorable experiential phases. You certainly have opened the door a to a magical world beyond. I would be so deeply honored to be invited to explore further...." :RA

MY STORY: The Queen of the Forest and the Wish-fulfilling Jewel Flower 

"Rei Jagube e Mamae Rainha - From the Forest across to the Sea.

I am the Flower of the Waters and all wishes fulfilled through me."

I have never been to Brazil or Peru, yet I first did Ayahuasca 20 years ago. Back then, people only whispered about it and it was not commonly known about as it is today. Generally then it was said that once you had heard about it three times, she was calling you. I hadn’t been “called” to do it the first few times I had heard of it. It wasn’t until I had a serious ‘health opportunity’ that I said yes and took the dive.

In this first medicine  journey, I was taken up to higher vibrational realms, up to the Fountains of Bliss & the Flood of Ineffable Light. I found the Source Creation Light that I had been in Soul Communion with several years before in my NDE. Except this time, instead of being fully immersed into the full body orgasmic(x1000 voltage) heavenly light from crown to toe, blinded and bathing in pure light, this time I could open my eyes into the light and see into the most wondrous visions that I had ever hoped to behold.

I gasped. I shook. I wept tears of great joy as I communed with the Light once again. I was shown indescribable beauty and color. I longed to stay in this place and never leave. I would then be suddenly brought back to the place where I began, the human perception plane that I had come to know, and it seemed a shadow realm by comparison.

I would plead to be brought back “up”, and I was told that I must imitate the ecstatic energies, the breath and sound that had ripped through me to bring me up before. I was told I must vibrate “like a Hummingbird”.

So I did. I gasped, energetically convulsed by body in wave-like motions, heaving my chest upwards, breathing a very particular way and imitating the strange soul language that had come thru be before…and I ascended back to that plane. This happened again and again and again.

So I continued down the path of Ayahuasca, hand-in-hand with the Queen of the Forest the medicine’s Queen Teacher, for many years and over a hundred journeys. She was in me. She is in me. She is a part of my deepest Soul. She is encoded in my cellular DNA.  She is the true “Mother/Mama” in me.

As I have many Soul parts, it was she who I had needed back in place in my field, that I may truly live and feel alive and in joy. Truly now, “I am at play in the fields of the Lord.”

She taught me Yoga, pranayama, mudras, Soul Language, healing modalities, deep prayer and patience.

She offered me visions and transmissions as she brought me to the Holy Love Source again and again.

When embarking upon my Yoga Teacher Training, I realized, “Oh, you call this that I am doing ‘pranayama’ or ‘this is what you call mudras’ and ‘this is what you call kundalini yoga’ and so on. The outside world already had names for that which she had imparted upon me.

Of-course later I learned that makes perfect sense because at the base of the Tree of Yoga, where all schools of yoga and their modern day branches emerged from is Stone-age Shamanism.

That means, once upon a time, people just like us, ate & drank the plant medicines and their eyes were opened, their souls revealed. They also had their deep Tantric and Yogic transmissions showing them the ancient and ascension ways to reach the stars and heavenly realms. These Stone-Age Shaman & Shamana transmissions would be passed on orally and then written down into Sutras and so on. All fruit of the Tree is for our timely understanding.

“Shall Time’s best jewel in Time’s chest lie hid – or who its’ beauty shall forbid?” 

From the vault of the Heavens, Light whispers his poetry through the lilac indigo skies of time in blissful waves of undulating, rhythmic vibrations: trancing, dancing, begging, “Wake up my Queen and sing with me. Pour out your sweet ambrosia nectar and may the world in its infancy drink our visions of Divinity, Holy Love and Remembrance.”

She is clothed with a raiment of flowers; perfumed of rose, jasmine, gardenia. Her wings made of iridescent light suspend her between the realms, while the Sun shines from her eyes and the moon rests at her feet, the sparkle of infinite starlight cascade behind her. Ancient, Wise, Magical, Weaver of Worlds, Sacred Creatress: Grandmother Aya, the Queen of the Forest. She breathes and dreams in the ancient Rainforest trees.

I commune with her on the Bridge of my heart, in the Land of Truth. She’s been here since the beginning and shall be until the end of days, for there is no end to her existence. She is pure Divine Light, Supreme Love emanation, found deep within.

She changes everything she touches, and everything she touches changes, Great Grandmother of transformation. Her cauldron stirs the heated passions, the anguish of sorrows, the pleas for healing, the striving and thirst for knowledge and purpose.

She transmits, teaches and reveals a profound respect for life and for all of Creation. She is the deep ceremony of reflection. She offers fruits from the Divine to the Divine, shining precious gems. She is the wish-fulfilling jewel flower here in the garden and it is she who gave us this fine stone, this diamond of illumination.

She is the Holy Grail. She is the Goblet. She is the Wine. She is the Eternal Well, the infinite stream.

In silence it is she who shows the path and teaches me the Language of my Soul, where my words are symbols of Creation and my movements are Mudras of navigation. She shows me how to decode and unlock the myriad of chambers wherein thy Soul’s been kept. I release, I let go, I open.

I savor the honeyed bliss breath of my soul. I savor the crystal clarity of my mind. I rest in vivid awareness, while savoring all emotions which arise. I taste the highest pleasure and then let it go when it’s gone.

It is she who transformed my life in to a Shamanic Temple Tarot Ballad. And it is She, wise beautiful timeless crone within, whose healing rivers pulse through my veins as the Vine of my Soul speaks:

From the dark night of the Soul carried out of the abyss,
I surrender to thee in the Temple of Bliss!
From the deep Emerald Forest out to the vast Celestial Sea,
I follow the chorus to live Holy Love’s Great Mystery.

Here am I, muse, I’ve forgotten so long

singing thy will in poetic-verse-song to thee in the Mansions

and Mirrors of radiant light,

romancing thy power, thy glory, thy essence, thy might.

I’ve remembered my Beloved’s sweet place,

Beheld thy Beloved’s timeless dear face-

Embraced the flowers in the garden divine,

Reveling delight in thou mine and I thine.

Dear Grandmother, give me Strength to say what is right

Of truth, honor, passion and thou holy sight.

Allow me moral courage and Force of Will

To perceive Supreme energy and thy essence fulfill:

As Goddess Artemis, Durga, tamer of the Lion-

We’ll journey together to the Temples of Zion

And receive Holy Baptism from the Eternal Well

To believe and to see both Heaven and Hell.

For THIS I remember of my tender heart’s swoon,

The blast of light and the hummingbird’s tune.

My path half bound with shade and struggling free,

While my Love singing by an azure Sea!

Brought to the heavens in a Lightning Rod.

Brought to the foot of thee who is God.

Remembering my steps, remembering my place,

Accepting the gifts of this holy space.

This I remember of the golden stairs;

The dissolving world of woes and cares,

The evolving world of Faith and Love

Unfolding and blossoming to the Light above.

Sweet nectar flowing in a Fountain Divine,

The buzzing of Angels to bring thee to thine.

Quivering and Trembling, ecstatic and free,

Blissfully aware of the powers that Be.

Bathed in Remembrance

while clothed in a raiment of Light,

Then sent back to earth to speak Truth

of God’s Might.

Here are my words,

herein lies my Story,

I pray it befitting to thy Eminent Glory!”


We all have the keys. The weight of each person’s talent is upon them.

The Universe is my Temple and the whole of existence, my church. In each breath I give thanks and with every beat of my heart I am driven by Truth. In fear and with desire, in agony and in ecstasy, I am inspired by the magnificent brilliance of Being.

I honor my body as a vessel for Cosmic Christ communion, experiencing my sacred reality granted me as a gift. Bit by bit, I clean and shine the many facets of my diamond, that I may radiate and sparkle in divine perfection.

I choose for Existence to use me in whatever ways serve my highest alignment. I am available. I am here to learn. With humbleness I pray to be of purpose, to live a life that is justified.

I pray to illuminate and create through me pure love, that I may be worthy to sit at thy lotus feet of the Mother, to drink the nectar of her compassion and be immersed in the well of living waters.

I free myself of my past that I may press “pause” and slip out of time awareness into the larger vastness of divine truth, into the majestic oneness of all that is eternal.

I surrender up myself to this Light which burns a holy fire in my heart: guiding me toward divine union, Holy Love. I am a star in my own reality and while “All the world’s a stage”, the Diamond essence within reveals that God is the only audience to perform for...

I give credit to the Father of Creation, to the “Pa”, I honor him.

Grandmother I drink your medicine, the vines with the tender grape, and I heal myself. I reclaim my innocence. I reclaim my inner sense. I accept myself as pure and whole forever. I embrace Bodhichitta, the excellence of the awakened heart.

The time of the singing of birds is come. We, children of the divine tree, children of the Sun and of the stars, are converging to call together our tribe under the Universal umbrella of Holy Love. We are all Love recreating itself.

I listen to all the members of my family tree.

The answers will come. I must not rush. We are here, after-all, in Eden. The petals of the flower open slowly. Fragrant, full of mystery from the dark depths of which that flower was seeded. All people have divine beauty seeded in their flower. I must be a good gardener.

In the infinity of space where the presence of God vibrates on Hummingbird wings, the divine beings illustrate through the visions as I am shown to live in the heart, not mind. I am shown to look both ways.

I am a part of the infinite I am. I create my fate through the irresistible power of divine magnetism. With the silent vibrations of my mind, I invite the Master Light Current to carry me in a Holy Ark toward the manifestation of my highest dreams.

Let whatever needs to come come, give and be given, take and be taken, that I may realize my existence.

Rei Jagube e Mamae Rainha - From the Forest across the Sea.

I am the Flower of the Waters and all wishes fulfilled through me.
