Happy August!

The first few days of August correspond with the Cross Quarter Day of Lughnasadh, the mid-point between Summer Solstice and the Fall Equinox. This is a time of celebrating the first harvest, particularly of the fruits and early crop.

It is also a time of playful games in the Sun - not so much in competition, but just for the fun of it - like playful lion cubs. So have some fun in the sun this month and enjoy this vibrant time! This promises to be a very powerful month to crack us open!



From Shambles to Shambala

August 2023 Energy Update ~ "The Year of the White Wizard"!

Wishing you a bountiful Lughnasa and a magical Full Moon in Aquarius as we move deeper into the Dog Days of Summer! We've just come through July 25th, the Dreamspell "Day Out of Time," and are celebrating the new year of the "White Wizard." The Lion's Gate portal and the heliacal rising of Sirius on 8/8 is a powerful opportunity for expansion as we begin to explore a whole new kind of leadership.



Zia and I are still offering in-person and distance healing sessions to anyone interested locally or globally. 

My Gene Keys Consulting sessions are still available through Zoom, Skype, or over the phone. 

Monday Meditations

I am continuing with the long-distance zoom connection on Mondays at 6:30 pm Pacific. The zoom meditation is open to anyone who wishes to attend from around the globe. Please send an email to for further information.

We are now doing in-person Thursday morning meditations, limited to 8 people, and by invitation only to those who were previously involved.

NEW this month! Workshops & Retreats

Zia and I will be returning to Nova Scotia for a weekend Retreat on Friday September 29th until Sunday October 1st, Co-creating with the Gene Keys' Ring of Gaia and the Dream Arc. Click here for full details!

Radio Shows

No radio shows this month, but we are excited to share a new series of interviews on our From Shambles to Shambala YouTube Channel - S2S Conversations!  Here is the first conversation in the series, "Grail Quests, Barbers, & The Ring of the Whirlwind" with our special guest, Matthew Ashdown! 


Gene Keys Consulting with Peter

I'm  committed to  continuing my work with one-on-one Gene Key sessions, which have proven to be profound experiences for many. I also work with groups or businesses who are starting out on a new venture. I look at the profile of each team member, the birth profile of the company/project, and how those involved can best work together while bringing their individual gifts to the fore in a wonderful co-creative fashion. 

This process has fantastic potential for maximizing efficiency and success. Projects often fail because of the challenges that arise through human ego and shadow, and this process can reveal what those potential challenges could be before they arise. This process can also be used to resolve issues that may already exist within an organization.

Activating the Expanded Amethyst Portal!

by Peter Tongue

We reached the final stage in our planting of the Amethyst Crystals on the weekend of the 7:7:7, July 7th, 2023! This was a powerful and special day as the triple 7 is typically seen as a lucky vibration. We had spent the last three months (April-June) planting the three large pieces of Amethyst in different locations as reported in previous newsletters. One in the Earth, one in the Water, and one in the Air at three different locations to create an expanded triangle - A Portal!

A Brazilian quartz crystal that had been given to us by a woman traveling from South America had served as an activation crystal in each of the Ceremonies and now it was time for that crystal to activate the expanded Portal. Zia felt called to do this in the Heart of Vancouver Island in the Strathcona Mountains.

The journey began on the 7:7:7 and the main Ceremonies took place on July 8th at and near the Mt. Washington Ski resort. The Axis Mundi of Vancouver Island is the highest point, a mountain called the Golden Hinde. This 7,000-ft peak is not easily-accessible, so we went up on the chair lift at Mt. Washington in the hope of viewing it from this vantage point. We found the perfect spot with a bank of snow right in front of us.


As we faced the mountain in the heart center of the Island, Zia led us in an echoing chant of the "64 Names of Love" - the 64 Siddhis of the Gene Keys - three times - to open a sacred space and anchor these frequencies into the Earth, and it felt really good.

The actual planting was to be carried out in Paradise Meadows as the Brazilian Quartz crystal had originated in Alto Paradiso (Amongst waterfalls in All High Paradise, Brazil). It was also one of three crystals to be planted in three different locations - one in New Zealand, one in South America, and this one here on Vancouver Island.

Our intention was to activate this expanded Amethyst Portal for us to work with in co-creation with Mother Earth herself as we shift into these new higher frequencies coming into the Earth plane and Gaia really is opening up to a new Earth Energy grid. The intention is always with Purity of Intent for the Highest and Greatest Good of All - with no attachment to any outcome. The work is done now and we shall see how it all plays out!


We are in particularly powerful times as on July 26th, the 8:8 Lion’s Gate begins to open, reaching its peak on the 8:8 and then closing on August 12th. This period is when Sirius, our spiritual sun, and the Sun, our physical sun, rise together at dawn, creating the opportunity for us to come into perfect alignment with sprit and matter. It is a time of accelerated awakening and higher consciousness as new light codes come streaming into our World. This happens in the sign of Leo where we benefit from the strength and empowerment within the heart of the lion! There is a great potential for Mastery of spirit over matter, in a wonderful playful co-creative dance!

As the energies amp up, we are being squeezed into letting go of any attachments we have to the old World and if we don’t let go, it can get very painful. Every one of us is being forced to make a choice at this time. Am I going to step up into the new 5th Dimensional energies that are upon us, or am I going to stay behind in the 3-D World? We each need to make our own choice; no-one can make it for us.


Above, we have included a wonderful interview that Zia and I did with Matthew Ashdown. This is the first in a new series of Shambles to Shambala interviews we will be hosting. Matthew did a wonderful job talking about his own awakening journey through Grail Questing and his connection to the Gene Keys and the Dream Arc. We found out that he is going to be managing the first ever Dream Arc Retreat, which will be occurring between the Fall Equinox and the Winter Solstice.

A Message from Richard Rudd and Rosy Aronson - The Dream Arc Initiation Retreat! 

"We are excited to announce this September we will be launching our first ever Dream Arc online retreat. Richard Rudd & Rosy Aronson along with a team of Dream Arc hosts will be guiding a three-month journey into symbols and synchronicities, in initiating a whole new wave of people into the magic of the Dream Arc experience. We have seen the power of collective contemplation in our other Gene Keys online retreats. We hope that this new Initiation Retreat will be a profound and inspiring offering for our whole global community."

We will send out more details about this retreat later in August - stay tuned and have a wonderful month!
