Oh My Goddess! Episode 4: The Long Way Om

✧・° ✧. ・°: * ✧・° .* ✧・°: *✧ ・°.*✧. ・°: * ✧・° .* ✧・°: *✧ ・°.*✧.

Hello magical ones!

We have a question for you. How can things in one’s life at times be so synchronistic, so liberating, so life-giving, and also simultaneously so confusing, uncertain, and upside-down?

That’s how we feel in processing the our return home from Burning Man and the ensuing 100 days of homelessness that we endured. But sometimes you’re just in the swamps of it, now aren’t ya?

(And usually you get out just fine, now don’t ya.)

Well we left Burning Man after 8 days in one of the harshest environments on the planet (which, THAT was immediately preceded by a 4-day upheaval to move everything we own into a storage unit…whew!) and then we came to fully realize that we had a grand ole leisurely couple of weeks before we had to be home.

(And the funny thing was that we didn’t even HAVE a home! That was the joke, the big what-the-fuck fart of a cosmic joke.)

Well so we went to Lake Tahoe and landed after the burn – along with a slew of other burners, as we noticed – and that was magical enough, but then we went to the super mystical portal that is Mount Shasta.

Now, Mount Shasta was an experience alright. Even approaching the mountain there was an air of otherworldliness, an ancient folklore in the air like long shadows from a sleepy sun. We had planned to stay at a campsite a little ways away from the mountain, though once we arrived we quickly found out that ALL of the campsites were full. So it’s like 2am and we’re in disbelief and questioning everything and so we just drove to the top of the mountain – literally to as far to the top as you can drive – and there we SLEPT ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, because it was either that or sleep all crunched up in the full-to-the-brim car.

Yes mom, there were bears, and yes there were mountain lions, and yes we still slept on the side of the road. (LIVING FREE!) ….And also this experience served to let us fully realize that we were indeed homeless, and what a ton of bricks (hilarious, surreal bricks that is) it felt like to come to this conclusion.

So we laughed our ass off at the top of that mountain, loud as hell laughs about our situation, and we were absolutely certain that we woke up the entire area, both the people sleeping in their cars, and the bears and mountain lions to boot.

In any event the next 4 days were glorious (once we got a campsite that is), and next door to us we met a fantastic couple Eric & Angela of San Antonio creative company Orgone Crystal Alchemy who make these beautiful works of art, and we talked into the night about spiritual transformation, and what it means to voice as creative, sensitive beings, and extraterrestrials and the like.

And also, of notable mention is our climb up to the summit of MOUNT SHASTA, because we climbed a motherloving mountain and it was a major life event.

Anyway. Soon thereafter we drove to Sedona, and the travels were largely uneventful save for the time when Astra was sleeping and I (Clementine) looked down to realize that the GAS MILEAGE RANGE WAS LITERALLY ZERO MILES and we almost ran out of gas because of it except for there was immediately an exit and a gas station at that very moment and everything turned out to be fine, somehow.

Sedona was awesome but we really needed a shower. LOL. So we looked at our options online and it was a total bust for the most part unless we wanted to pay $15 each to the travel stops, and the local pool was closed for some reason, so we ended up going to a gym and that was probably the best damn shower of our lives.

Well so Sedona has these magical vortexes as you may know, places where the ancients would gather and where the trees grow in a twisted pattern because the energy is so strong, and we hit all of them while we were there, because that’s how we roll. And it was a glorious time, especially the full moon drum circle gathering at Cathedral Rock on our last night in town, where we got to connect with our masterful friend Sandra Walter and sit up there on the mountain with her for hours under the full moon, asking her all kinds of questions about the universe and the ascension. This was a major fangirl moment for us because she is such a leader in our field, and that alone was a major highlight of our whole trip.

There were many other great times in Sedona – masterminding with a new group of friends, creek swimming, rock shopping – but eventually we had to head back after a week of camping there and traveled home. But we didn’t have a home so instead it was various homes of people in our community who opened their hearts to us in our time of need, and it was beautiful and affirming in so many ways to have all of these beautiful people show up for us, and we learned a lot in this time.

There was this keen feeling that we were like traveling monks, bringing our love and skills and healing intentions into every “village” that we stayed in, changing up the patterns, transforming spaces and families and flows, and anchoring love into every place we stayed.

We are forever grateful for this time that taught us so much about how to receive. I know we have said it a lot, but thank you to everyone who hosted us, donated to us, and encouraged us through such a challenging time. We will never forget your kindness and love.

And without further ado, here is Oh My Goddess! Episode 4: The Long Way Om. From our hearts to yours!

Thank you for reading and for watching – we are honored to be connected to you!

In love, awe, gratitude and wonder,

Clementine and Astra ✦

Oh My Goddess! Episode 3: In Dust We Trust: Burning Man 2019

✧・° ✧. ・°: * ✧・° .* ✧・°: *✧ ・°.*✧. ・°: * ✧・° .* ✧・°: *✧ ・°.*✧.

Hello family!

Coming to you from a strange place – a seeming cloud floating on top of reality perhaps? – a tired, surreal, distant type of mindspace that might be described as “fairy-tale nostalgia with a silly, naughty twist.”

We are writing this in a coffee shop in South Lake Tahoe, our landing pad after such a wild time in the desert at the the World Mecca for the Weird that is Burning Man…

And MAN, was it weird! We stayed at an art car camp and had the strange pleasure of riding around in the Wet Pussy for most of the week, a “car” that is a cat bathtub that glows and meows aloud, complete with pink leather and mosaic tile inside.

Remembering it now, the opportunity to “Goddess” about from the art car, blowing kisses to admiring strangers, flowing with music meant for aliens with good taste, riding high above the RV rooftops to see the sunsets and sunrises through the dust…. Thank you sweet Lady Pussy for the joy of knowing you, and to sweet Marina for making you!

We got to visit a camp called “Entheogenesis” which is run by a branch of MAPS called the Zendo Project, running around in small circles with such people as Rick Doblin, Annie Oak, Paul Stamets, and Alex & Allyson Grey…. epic!

Another strange experience was experiencing a “shaman’s death” ceremony at the North Gate of the temple…. a growling medicine man named Barnaby and his troupe of drumming chanters all around all taking us through a guided ego death…. Barnaby spit tequila on our foreheads after which we were blindfolded and smudged with sage while being led through a series of ritualistic steps through death, all the while experiencing a trance-like state as if we had died and were walking through the Bardo to the next realm….

Mecca for the Weird, indeed. Nights were cool and psychedelic, lights abounding in every corner of the known playa perimeter, a sea of LEDs in every direction. Art installations for days (literally), to the point that you could never see it all. Biking around the streets of a temporary city, visiting a true human-hearted temple and sharing prayers with the wooden walls before they burned, receiving gifts at every turn – would you like a coconut water? A hot meal? A margarita? How about a sweet, soft place to nap and escape the afternoon sun. Or anything else you can imagine being offered to you from an open heart and a smiling face, reflections of yourself so clear and true because this is a place where you can be authentic and not be judged or persecuted for it. Freedom on Earth for all who could make it.

Which, constantly at every turn we reflected on what a privilege it was to be there. How many couldn’t make it, how many can’t even get food to eat let alone a trip to this wild and magical place…

But in reflecting on this, we felt that we were supposed to be there, and indeed could not have made it without the help from our community. Though what a miracle it was to live in a place that gifts a (temporary) glimpse into what humans could be without the artificial constructions of time, money, hardship, isolation… where everything is free flowing, where people are open to expressing fully, where no one makes you feel out of place for being different than them, because they are “different” too.

This is the New Earth, the world that we are creating. For as we reject the separation, the judgment, the shame, the self-suppression, the very real oppression of this world – we come together to create. To inspire, to express, to burst out of our shells like a passionate, miraculous wave of lifeforce onto this plane. Gift economy, togetherness, bridging across social barriers, inclusion, immediacy in the moment, expression and inclusion – THIS is the future, and thank Goddess for the opportunity to experience it in real life for one week out of the year.

And from this, our gift to you, a peek into what we experienced over the 8 days we spent in the otherwise lifeless desert. Though keeping in mind – this is our personal expression and experience, in no way endorsed by the Burning Man organization, nor intended to generate a profit or commercial gain. This is an artistic expression of our souls as we document a journey through metamorphosis, a song of our souls to share with our people, a message of and a call for transformation.

Thank you for reading and for watching – we are honored to be connected.

In love, awe, gratitude and wonder,

Clementine and Astra ✦

Oh My Goddess! Episode 2: Upheaval, Uprooting, & Away

✧・° ✧. ・°: * ✧・° .* ✧・°: *✧ ・°.*✧. ・°: * ✧・° .* ✧・°: *✧ ・°.*✧.

Hey fam!

How’s it going out there? In your cozy homes with all of your life still making sense around you?

No, we’re not bitter…. or jealous…. we just have been through the most intense moves of our lives, filling a 10’x20′ storage unit to the brim with the contents of what was our beloved templehouse, and we just hope you appreciate your stable, consistent home life – provided you have it – you little twat! 😛

We’re currently writing this on the other side of the Burning Man adventure, though for details about the experience you’re going to have to stay tuned for episode three. In the meantime, we’re offering up a hot, steamy glimpse into the hilariously hellish experience that was our week leading up to Burning Man, a special type of initiation that only crazy people would have agreed to on the soul contract level.

It’s been about two weeks since we moved and our bodies still hurt from the desperation and upheaval that was our move. Why our landlord gave us only four weeks of notice to move out we will never understand.

How innocent and naive we were before getting that reality bomb dropped on us! We will forever cherish the rose-colored months imagining that everything would be easy and free flowing on our way to the big Burn.

It is said that you agree to everything in your life ahead of time, or at least the major movements and events. Well the uphill battle of completing the challenge of moving while preparing for Burning Man, one of the most physically intense experiences on the planet – and being able to fund the unexpected expenses as such – was absolutely draconian on our parts.

Higher selves – we need to TALK.

Bruised, scraped, sore, dehydrated, down to the wire with time (packing the car at 6am on the morning we were to leave, yet cleaning our house til 4pm before leaving the house keys on that same day, with no sleep!) – supplies for the journey tossed into whatever space was available – frantic, sleepless, working around the clock and STILL barely making it – this was our life, and what misery was this reality?! HOW could it get so low, with such devotion to the awakening mission supposedly our insurance against such times?

This life ain’t no cake walk; the initiations are endless and you never arrive. Yet we bow to the strength that we discovered within us, and to the community who showed up to support us during this time. It seems the big lesson through this passage was to ask for help, to realize that we can no longer do what we are doing alone, to ask and receive in return for what we are always inclined to be giving.

Big thank yous to your heart from our hearts. And big, uncertain, hugs from our wandering circus that is our lives right now. Coming from people who are usually the grounded, stable, consistent ones – this change of pace and lack of rooting has been inspiring, if scary – but so much less scary than if you weren’t a part of it. So thank you.

And without further ado, here is episode two of Oh My Goddess, a platform gearing up to create high-vibrational media centered around consciousness and the awakening!:

With love from somewhere pretty in Nevada,

Clementine and Astra ✦

Oh My Goddess! Episode 1: Burning Man or Busk

✧・° ✧. ・°: * ✧・° .* ✧・°: *✧ ・°.*✧. ・°: * ✧・° .* ✧・°: *✧ ・°.*✧.

Hey hey hey!

Clem and Astra here, coming to you with a stunning new unfoldment, a situation that has created itself over the last week and suddenly arrived at our feet like a gift with a bow on the porch on Christmas morning. 

A bit of backstory: all throughout July we were innocently preparing for the journey of a lifetime to go to Burning Man for the first time, when we got the VERY inconvenient and sudden news from our landlord that we were going to have to move right before we were supposed to leave. Yikes!!!

Of course this was a shock-and-tumble situation, putting us in a precarious situation logistically and financially. But we followed a call of our souls to ask for help to bridge the gap, and a GoFundMe to support the journey was formed.

Well in an interesting parallel experience, we had for months been brainstorming about creating a new media platform for all of our wild ideas around spirituality and the like; the GoFundMe offered an organic opportunity to create it and share it with our community. And so, a spontaneous video creation fell out of us like a wish to the universe and now the whole thing is live and here we are!

So with that we announce the launch of our new media platform called

✦  Oh My Goddess!  ✦

It’s amazing what happens when you align yourself with the forces of creation!! 

Oh My Goddess is a 5D Media Platform centered around spirituality and the awakening. Here we aim to bring you conscious comedy, magic, metaphysical education, and sociopolitical commentary from a high-vibrational mind.

For now we are focusing on videos (think skits like on SNL, but conscious), though it will eventually include a podcast as well. The project will be centralized here on the blog.

Our first episode (which we think is HILARIOUS) explores how we got to this precarious point and our process in dealing with it; our next episode will cover our packing and moving process, and then after that – the road trip to Burning Man and beyond. So if you ever wondered what we might be up to behind the scenes, or what it might be like to live life in full-time devotion to the awakening, tune in and see what unfolds; we think you might enjoy it (and probably laugh your ass off too)!

We’re feeling so inspired and grateful, even as we prepare to pack up all of our belongings into a storage unit and face a very uncertain next couple of months. Our community has shown us such kindness and encouragement through all of this and we cannot thank you all enough. Deep gratitude for the prayers, donations, affirmations, gifts, and assistance at this time… we are finally feeling like we’ve caught a wave, and it feels like it’s going to be a BIG one. 

Til soon!
