13 Ascension; Serpent/CHICCHAN

Sharing a very uplifting email I rec'd this morning. Very timely that this arrives on the day 13 Serpent/CHICCHAN (13 Day of Ascension of this Galactic week), and also sealing this past 13 days that begun under 1 Reed/BEN (the intention energy for this week, being about establishing connections/balance between heaven and earth). Many of my friends have been experiencing the half-here, half-somewhere else - with very active dreamtime - so this information and timing feels especially in tune with our universal consciousness - and it's VERY GOOD NEWS!!!

I have included the descriptions of Serpent/CHICCHAN and Reed/BEN below. The attached email links to David Wilcox inspiration and prophecy about the days ahead.

Reed/BEN - Guiding light for family and home; tough and analytical, Reed/BEN endeavors to bring peace and harmony to all of their relations... with great skill at negotiating, they are also often put to the test. The glyph is represented by the reed - Native American tradition sees Reed as connection between heaven and earth - a direct pipeline.

Serpent/CHICCHAN - Movement and creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands it's heart. Serpents align authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure... are adaptable and fluid. (As day 13 ascension - this is the focus of today's ascension... moving to the next step of awareness, upon which to begin a new Galactic cycle, tomorrow. (1 Death/Rebirth/Transformer/CIMI - a week ahead under the focus of rebirth and transition.)

Mayan Meditation

I wanted to share a meditation I learned a long time ago on the Native American path. I believe it is Mayan in origin. I always say it when I get in the car, or whenever I need reassurance. Seeing it again today - it seemed so appropriate and special.

A way opens before me.
All obstacles and impediments are removed.
Only that which is worthy and desirable
comes forward with me.

I also wanted to share a link to Don Alejandro's message about 2012 prophecy and what it means. I can't help but be moved by it in it's purity and simplicity.

Love in a Recipe - Mom's Chocolate Sheet Cake

One of the things I love about my Mom, is that everyone who enters the door is offered something wonderful from her kitchen - this is my favorite thing. This is seriously one of the best recipes in my entire collection - the fastest and BEST chocolate cake you will ever lay hands on. You just can't screw this up!

Mom's Chocolate Sheet Cake

The Cake...
2 Cups Flour
2 Cups Sugar
1 Stick Butter
5 Tablespoons Hershey's Cocoa
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Water
1 Teaspoon Soda
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Oil

First - preheat the oven to 400 degrees (that is not a typo).
Get a big sauce pan, you are going to mix the batter in there. Melt the butter with the oil, water, and cocoa and bring to a boil. Take off the stove immediately, and add all the dry ingredients, EXCEPT THE SODA. Dissolve the soda in the 1/2 Cup of Buttermilk, then add this, the eggs, and vanilla and mix till smooth. Pour batter into a sheet cake pan - those big pans that are a little deeper than a cookie sheet. (I line mine with parchment paper, or grease and dust it with flour.) Bake for 20 minutes ONLY, or until it springs back.

The frosting...
You are going to use the same saucepan, so rinse and start over for the frosting. This doesn't take long, and you pour it over the cake while it is still hot - only 5 minutes out of the oven... so I usually start this about 5 minutes BEFORE the cake is done.

1 Stick Butter
5 Tablespoons Hershey's Cocoa
1/3 Cup Buttermilk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Box (2 1/2 Cups) Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup chopped pecans (optional)

Melt the butter with the cocoa til well dissolved. Add the buttermilk and vanilla - mix. Add the powdered sugar and keep this on a low burner... just to keep it from setting while you are mixing. By now, your cake should be out of the oven - add the nuts if you want them in the frosting - then pour this over the cake. (The frosting sets up like a homemade MMMMM fudge and holds all the moisture in the cake... will stay moist for days like that.)

OMG - Never baked this for ANYONE that they didn't go ape over it. You can leave out the cinnamon, though just a tad is unrecognizable - just "something" good people can't quite put their finger on. TRY IT.

I'm packing boxes for my move, and just couldn't bear the thought of not being able to find this recipe that I love so much. Hope you enjoy it. AND THANK YOU MOM!
