BAT MOON Week 2: White Week of Refinement, 2-8 August 2020
How did you get on in Week 1, 26 July-1 August? On 31 July I designed a business card for a new creative project. I’ve no idea how I’m going to do it yet; I’ve taken the first step, which was all that I wished to do.
In setting a purpose for the year, the secret is to get in touch with your heart’s deepest desires. These will make your heart sing, and nothing less than this counts.
As you will gather from the name, Week 2 is about refining your purpose.
“Write down your desire every single
day, until the words come from your soul”.
So says my Mayan Diary. The action of writing it down will bring up all your insecurities for you to see. You CAN do it, whatever your mind says to the contrary!
Bat Moon is the shamanic death of the old self, and the birth of a new, enlightened one. We're living in profound and chaotic times.
I suggest lifting your vibrations daily.
Belief in the Self is all-important now x. Ann.
MAYAN NEW YEAR. MOON 1:
BAT MOON OF REBIRTH 26 July-22 August 2020
During Bat Moon we give
the year a purpose. We can relax around
this as we have 28 days, split into 4 weeks, to allow this process to evolve
on its own. Believe me, your desires
will make themselves known to you! These
are the longings of your soul, and relate to your life purpose. Today, 26 July, I feel the old ME passing away; a
shamanic death. Are you feeling it too? I’m exhausted; I’ve come to the end of
Please be very gentle with yourself as you go through these emotions.
“Bat gives us
strength for a shaman death;the power to let your old self die,
and abandon all your ideas about yourself which keep you separated
from your soul path".
Bat Moon has 28 days; 4 x 7-day weeks:
Week 1: Red Week of Initiation. 26 July-1 August.
Week 2: White Week of Refinement. 2 August-8 August.
Week 3: Blue Week of Transformation. 9 August-15 August.
Week 4: Yellow Week of Ripening. 16 August-22 August.
Week 1: Red Week of Initiation. 26 July-1 August.
During this week you will be shown your desires, and this will give the year a purpose.
“You will find it
easy to recognize your true heart’s desire:
your heart will start beating
13 Moon Diary recommends accepting this desire, and not pushing it away as ‘impossible’.
It has come to you for a reason: to be heard and acted upon!
In the next blog we
will look at week 2: White Week of Refinement.

LION'S GATE PORTAL 26 JULY-12 AUGUST & MAYAN NEW YEAR: 26 JULY 2020
THE MAYAN STARGATE PORTAL:
THE DAYS OF NO SHADOWS 20/21/22 MAY 2020
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2020!
19 December 2019. Planetary alignment: Earth, Sun and Galactic Centre in Sagittarius.
11 November 2018 equals 11.11.11. From my heart and soul, a message:
"You probably feel tremendously tired as a mammoth gateway approaches. At the same time you feel an extreme urgency - and sense of exhilaration - to complete anything unfinished. Tying up those loose ends is your fervent desire... and to change the way you live forever! This gate is more dynamic than any others before it, so please take care of yourself. Rest, relax, have fun, walk in nature. Know that you are complete and perfect just as you are xx".
The triple 11 gate brings inner peace. When we know it within ourselves, then we can create it on the outside. Only then. Time to end duality; we are all One.
Peace, love and unity from me to you. Whoever is reading these words, I send you blessings in your life xx. And thank you for being YOU in the world. We all chose to be here in these auspicious times.
It's not just the leaves that are falling away; the old self and the patriarchal template we've had to live by is leaving. However things still appear on the surface in the chaotic 3D world, its influence is disappearing. When I follow my heart's advice, surrender myself to creative work, and spend time in nature, I feel so much stronger. My soul can fully express, and my heart and soul speak to me as one. I'm designing artwork to go with the third book in the Temple of the Sun & Moon series, and it has lifted my spirits tremendously through vibrant colour. We are ready to step fully into our new lives when we reinvent ourselves and release totally the old ways of being. I've been clearing out books and clothes which don't 'sing' with vibrant energy. I'm also being advised to rest for a while daily, which means I am not continually 'doing' but simply 'being'. I can recommend this to everyone xx.
Here's an excerpt from Temples, book 2 in the series:
"Mountains are sun and moon temples. It is a pity that so many people scramble up them, and that mountaineering has become an adventure tourist industry. To me the mountains will always be sacred places which speak to us. It is best to approach them in a centred state, with reverence and awe for their beauty and majesty, so that we can hear their messages. For they, too, speak to us". (page 246).
Death and Rebirth
This is my first website (4 years now), and it's been a learning curve. The dramatic Libra New Moon (9 October 2018) and the 10:10 Gateway (10 October 2018) signifies a double new beginning for us all: 10:10 = 1:1. This has revealed a part of me which has now fallen away, a fearful ‘self’ which held me back from fully engaging with my books and their messages, because I didn’t believe enough in ME, so I wasn’t totally present in what I was doing. I’ve a twitter account (@anncartonbooks), yet I've spent most of my time retweeting the causes of others and not my own.
Time to change all that! I feel a new burst of enthusiasm and, above all, self-belief. I am now fully committed to this website, and to the books which I've channelled, written and illustrated. I would love to share them with you, dear readers. On this blog, as I said on the home page, will be excerpts from the books, which embody the presences of, and messages primarily from the waters, stones, forests and mountains of our beautiful planet.
A deep and lasting connection with Nature is the only thing which sustains and nourishes us as divine Lightbeings.
PS: For some reason the counter on my website went back to 00. Strange things happening! Ann xx.
7 October 2018. Helloooooooooo!
"We're not here to justify ourselves, and life is not a competition for approval.
We're here to fulfil our life purpose". From Temples.
You must be wondering where I've been all this time! I had a fall on 26 July, the Mayan New Year, first day of Moon 1, Bat (Rebirth), and the opening of the Lion's Gate. I fell into a fountain :) ; I know, it sounds crazy, yes? But it was a ritual baptism, to take me to the next level. I was out of action for 8 weeks. 8 is the number of the divine human. I was made to STOP, completely, to rest and go within. Then, once the 8 (painful) weeks were up, I was given tuition in new skills relative to the divine human. I work with the water energies, the elementals, the nature beings; they were inspiring me and giving me messages once I had passed through this initiation time. Love xx.
25 July 2018. Mayan Day Out of Time + World Day of Love and Thanks to Water.
The Mayan Year ends on 24 July, then has a day out of time in which to stand still, take stock and review where we've been and what we wish to create in the new year starting 26 July. What a great and necessary idea, and something totally missing, of course, from the Gregorian calendar which is not in tune with nature's moon cycles.
25 July: Mercury at 23deg. Leo stations retrograde as we prepare to enter the Lion's Gate portal of 26 July-12 August. The Lion's Gate transformational light energy peaks on the 08:08 gateway, 8 August.
Love and grateful thanks to all the divine blessings which emanate from water xxx.
27 July is the 4deg. Aquarius full moon and total lunar eclipse. Eclipses bring change and transformation.
1 August is officially Lunasagh, feast of the Celtic sun god Lugh, but it was celebrated in ancient times (says the astrologer Marla Kelly) at the full moon closest to 1 August. So we also are feeling the energies of that!
Love to all in this wondrous time of huge transformation and enlightenment xx.
HOTTT JULY IN THE UK!
Pic: I set out on a bikeride, but it was so hot and humid that I only reached this shady spot by the river! That was enough.
July: great transition and purging. 6 planets retrograde, time to retrace our steps, decide what old energy is blocking our lives from progressing into Lightbody, and get rid of it. The eclipse season approaches, with a partial solar eclipse on the 20deg. Cancer New Moon on 13 July. I'm already feeling it powerfully. I've given away even more old things, and released old emotions.
After the exhaustion of June, I feel a great surge of expectancy and positivity, and I look forward to the eclipses and the life changes which will undoubtedly follow for all of us! I am so conscious of the birds singing in the early morning. Their unity and ability to harmonize is so powerful and it moves my soul to hear their combined song.
All the water energy in my flat backed-up yesterday, and every time I pulled the plug in one place, dirty green muck came out somewhere else! The washing machine delivered this green gunge into the bath as I was having my morning shower, and I had to leap out! (All fixed now! :)). I'm seeing it as a clearing prior to the eclipse, which forced me to STOP and go within, and above all, to STAY CALM. Peace and blessings xx.
Well it's the last day of June, and I can't believe where the month has gone! Unable to post till now, with all the purging and exhaustion of Lightbody changes; best to rest. I'd have made no sense on here, and with a strange viral thing, I had to rest for two weeks. It took me away from the world whilst I was learning to embrace my new Lightbody template for a life of joy. I also finished the main part of my book; there's only the conclusion to do now, and that can wait for a while. The sunny June weather all over the UK and Ireland is helping the process; the sun plays a major role in our ascension, emitting solar Light codes and lifting our energies.
Summer Solstice exact, 21 June: Here I am in a sacred spring, the Cross Bath in the city of Bath :), the day I suddenly felt vibrantly alive again. The building design has sacred geometry incorporating the vesica pisces of sacred union.
Throughout June, multiple alignments and downloads were bringing up old karmic issues to clear. The Lion's Gate (26 July - 12 Aug) is always a powerful time, and the eclipse season begins on 13 July in the UK. Moon 13 in the Mayan calendar, Turtle Moon, began 27 June- till 24 July. Moon 13 is all about RESTING, looking back on the year which has gone, and deciding what to create in the next one. A good time to explore our vision for all that we can be on Earth. 25 July is the Mayan Day Out of Time (again, looking back on the year, and seeing what our heart and soul wish to create in the next year), beginning on 26 July with Moon 1, Bat Moon.
Wishing you all a vibrant, wonderful summer of exciting new beginnings on your soul path, xx. See you all in July!
MAY 2018: PASSION FOR LIFE!
For the past three weeks we've all been clearing and purging emotions, old beliefs, belongings and energies which we no longer require as we move into Lightbody. A friend with so much to live for passed over, and I went inward, processing the sadness. Life on the outside just felt too much. Then I went to a music event on 9 May, and it brought me alive again. All the people there knew him so much better than I did, yet I had felt it so deeply. And suddenly the joy was there again! My higher Self told me:
"Now you understand the process, for you have experienced the other side, the dark side to the full. Only then are we able to choose the Light".
We are all giving birth to a new template for life: the Template of Joy. Being out in nature daily will help us tremendously to move through this transition. My heart says: "Sparkle with joy from now on!". With love from me xx.
