Flossie: In the Eye of the Storm

Tracking, diverting, filming and explaining Hawaii's first tropical storm in six years

HAIKU, Maui, July 30, 2013 - Can major weather patterns be messages to us from the Spirit realm? You betcha. But can we affect them with our prayers, emotions, thoughts? Can we literally move huge masses of energy across the world's largest ocean? Until yesterday, I would have been skeptical if someone suggested we could. Now I know we can - from a firsthand experience.

This is a story about Hawaii's first tropical storm in six years... about how it formed, where it traveled, and what messages it left in its aftermath.


Want to see Flossie's eye? She is on our doorstep now. Looking down straight at us at the Rainbow Shower. Can't make out if she is winking or not... :-)

Lull before the storm. It is eerily quiet now. No rain. No sound of birds singing. So just as well that I made this afternoon that music video about the beauty of Srem.


Funny things - our Third Eye and Third Ear. With the help of our Spirit guides, they can create magic. Here's a case in point…

A Facebook friend from Serbia posted a picture yesterday. Here it is…

This is a church in Sremska Mitrovica, the largest town in the district of Srem where I attended middle school high school. The picture created an instant musical association. I heard the sounds of the Serbian folk song "Divan je kiceni Srem" (Beautiful is the gilded Srem). We used to sing it at parties during high school. But that was in the 1960s. I have not heard it since. And I have NEVER played it before.

Something made me walk over to the piano and start playing it. It's an easy tune in the waltz rhythm. Then I remembered that my late father also used to sing it, accompanied by a Gypsy "tamburica" band (tamburica is a small guitar, like a ukalele here in Hawaii). So I looked up a tamburica version on Youtube. 

And then I added some of the photos I took over the years in and around Sremska Mitrovica., and put it all together into this music video. Enjoy!

"Divan je kiceni Srem" (Beautiful is the gilded Srem):



Elizabeth and I just got out of the Jacuzzi. Still quiet. But the big eye of Flossie is now gazing down upon us close up. The Rainbow Shower (Haiku) area seems to be the only part still in the clear...

And then she arrived, making thunderous music of her own.



First things first: We are okay. The eye of the storm passed over or near us about an hour ago, knocking out power for about 40 minutes. 

Flossie arrived at the Rainbow Shower with tremendous lightening and thunderbolt sounds, but with relatively light winds. Thunderstorms are extremely rare in Hawaii. We have may experienced maybe three of them in five years. But none were as powerful as Flossie; none lasted as long, nor struck as close to home as this one. 

Yet, there was practically no damage that I could see when I did my evening rounds in the aftermath of Flossie. So I stopped at the Anahata-Merkaba sacred place to thank the Spirits for their benevolence, and for bringing to us such a perfect storm. Perfect, because it brought much needed rain. And yet gentle enough not to cause any lasting damage either to sentient or inanimate beings. Just as I asked the spirit in my midnight prayer last night.

I had tears in my eyes during the brief ceremony. Because what happened today at the Rainbow Shower is an example of both the power and the love of the Divine. And of the Spirit realm's TWO-WAY communication with us.

I captured most of the drama when the Eye of Fossie passed over us with my waterproof camera. In due course, I will edit those clips into a film about Fossie's dinnertime visit and share it with you. For now, I will just share with you these maps of the "Fossie's Eye Crossing."

Here's a film about Flossie's visit to the Rainbow Shower...

Flossie: In the Eye of the Storm

Thunder - Music of God


A childhood friend from Florida expressed here concern yesterday for our safety in advance of the arrival of the tropical storm Flossie. I told her not to worry, that Flossie is coming here to the Rainbow Shower on Maui by invitation. 

That's because the night before, during my midnight prayers, I asked the Spirit to divert the storm here.  Why? Because we have had drought conditions here for over about a month now. And as Steward of the Earth and the caretaker of the Rainbow Shower, the Solar Chakra of this planet, I told them I could use some help from the celestial realm. But I also asked them to be gentle so that Flossie could nourish all beings on Maui - sentient and inanimate, not destroy.

Lo and behold, while I was sleeping the night of July 28-29, Flossie's path was diverted toward Maui. Which is what alarmed by friend in Florida and some other friends and family members who also contacted us before Flossie's arrival.


This morning, I learned WHY this happened.  From the Spirit realm, the point of this storm being diverted to the Rainbow Shower by a prayer, and arriving here at sunset on the Anahata-Merkaba Day (astrologically speaking), was to demonstrate to humanity in a tangible way, and in the 3D world, the power of devotion and the connectedness of man and God. What happened yesterday was proof that we are one with the Creator. 

I was reminded that the reason I am here on Earth at this time around is to be the link between the heaven and earth and to help heal the planet and all beings on it, sentient and inanimate. That's what a shaman is. But Man can only do that if one is in alignment with the celestial realm, the universe. Which is why I always open my prayers with the following incantation (from home page): 

I am ALTZAR, the Rainbow Giver from the Dogon star. I am a child of the Universe, I am a ray of the original Sun. I am a link between Heaven and Earth. I am Wholeness, I am Love... and I love You.

I then go on to address the Creator and my Spirit guides:

I know who and what I am, and I give praise and thanks. And I restate my intention to stay on my path of enlightenment and ascension as you illuminate it for me. So keep illuminating and I will keep following my passions and my intuitions, trusting you will have them aligned with my soul intentions, with the will of the Creator, and with the forces of the universe.

When I asked for my daily guidance this morning, the Spirit reconfirmed that what happened yesterday was indeed a message for all of humanity, not just me. "Speaking" through the Yi Jing/I Ching Chinese Book of Changes oracle, they showed me the Thunder-over-Earth image. 

How appropriate, I thought, especially in light of what happened around here last night when Flossie arrived, isn't it? 

But that was not all. The Spirit also explained the connection of the storm to music, and WHY I was inspired yesterday - in the middle of the storm - to record the sounds of my ancestral music. Here's an excerpt from their message #16 this morning:

"When at the beginning of summer the thunder–electrical energy–comes rushing forth from the earth again, and the first thunderstorm refreshes nature, a prolonged state of tension is resolved. Joy and relief make themselves felt. So too, music has power to ease tension within the heart and to loosen the grip of obscure emotions. The enthusiasm of the heart expresses itself involuntarily in a burst of song, in dance and rhythmic movement of the body. From immemorial times the inspiring effect of the invisible sound that moves all hearts, and draws them together, has mystified mankind.

Music is something serious and holy, designed to purify the feelings of men. It fell to music to glorify the virtues of heroes and thus to construct a bridge to the world of the unseen. In the temple men drew near to God with music and pantomimes (out of this, the theater later developed). 

Reverential feeling for the Creator of the world was united with the most sacred of human feelings - that of reverence for the ANCESTORS. The ancestors were invited to these divine services as guests of the Ruler of Heaven and as representatives of humanity in the higher regions. This uniting of the human past with the Divinity in solemn moments of religious inspiration established the bond between God and man. The ruler who revered the Divinity in revering his ancestors became thereby the Son of Heaven, in whom the heavenly and the earthly world met in mystical contact."

So in a nutshell, that's what Flossie was about. That's what "Divan je kiceni Srem" (folk song) was about. That's why I played the "Blue Danube" in the middle of the storm. Not to drown out the thunder, as my mother would have me do when I was a teenager, but to JOIN WITH IT in perfect harmony. Because Thunder is the music of the Creator. 

I actually received that very notion last night when I walked around the Rainbow Shower to inspect the damage and make the last video clip. I thought I would record Beethoven's 9th "Ode de Joy" again to go with the thunder claps in the live Flossie film. But I forgot to do it when I actually edited the clips.


And that's all she wrote so far for the month of February from the Rainbow Shower.
