A Stargate Meditation: Conscious Life Expo, Feb 2017

On Friday, February 10th, Shima Moore kicked off The 15th Annual Los Angeles Conscious Life Expo with a full room of attendees, by facilitating a CLE Stargate Meditation.

5D_StarPortal Stargate Experience:

Bathe in the bliss of other Dimensions

The Stargate, introduced to the planet in 1989, is one of the most advanced leading-edge devices to assist humanity in the awakening process, and reconnection to its heritage from the Stars. Stargate International worked with this structure on other worlds and brought it to the planet at this critical time in human evolution.

Constructed on principles of sacred geometry, the Stargate is a physical as well as an etheric structure. It is an inter-dimensional portal that activates our DNA and our remembering of who we truly are. The Stargate is a conscious being who responds to each us individually, according to our openness and clarity of intention.

Once activated, energy fields created by this conscious structure envelope the audience in 12th-dimensional frequencies. Bathed in a palpable field of love, we are ever more receptive to various groups of beneficient higher-dimensional beings, eager to help us heal, grow, and evolve into our highest potential. Angels, Nature Divas, Ascended Masters, Star Families, and others frequently join us during these experiential “meditations.” Simply by being in their loving vibrations, the great potential of change is there for each of us.

Multi-dimensional dormant DNA reactivates, physical healings have been reported, ancient Karma dissolved, stress disappearing, psychic abilities enhanced, love, joy, and awareness expanding.

Stargate facilitator, Shima Moore has been leading 5D_Star Portal Stargates in Marin and elsewhere since 2015 and coordinating SF Bay Area Stargates International events with founders, Prageet Harris and Julieann Conard, since 2013. Whether you are a seasoned Stargate traveler or brand new to the experience, you are most welcome to join Shima to feel for yourself the powerful, transformative energies of Stargate Activations/Meditations.

Our time together generally consists of two to three 5D_StarPortal Stargate meditations accompanied by music to further elevate and uplift your experience. After each meditation, there is ample time for sharing and for questions and answers.

What Does It Take to Gear Up Mentally For A 10-Day Master Cleanse?


Resolve and fortitude are essential qualities necessary to overcome diversions of social gatherings, work schedules and just plain resistance  in breaking out of our  3-meal-a-day obsession.

So much of our interactions, relationships, entertainment and holidays focus on food. Such behavior makes a decision to ingest primarily a singular magic-elixir formula for a full 10 days, and cope with justified expectations of setbacks and discomfort physically and mentally along the way, are unnecessary considerations for most folks to even consider.

So why on earth, have I set this ahhhsome goal for myself more than 20 times the last five years— since January 2011? Let’s see if I can explain it . . .

For the most part, I love, love, love how I feel physically, mentally, and spiritually from day one. Sometimes I can get a bit cranky but on the very first morning when I awake on Day 1, I feel better. I’ve already begun an elimination process by drinking a cup of warm Smooth Move, herbal laxative tea the night before. Generally it’s a Sunday night. If I can tie it into a special lunar event of some kind “all’s the better.”

Generally, I’ve watched my self as I begin to spin a bit out-of-control primarily in areas relative to carbohydrates like bread, pasta, chips, ice cream/yogurt, wine, etc. Dairy cravings are generally a good indicator for me. Prior to that, I’m basically excellent at resisting and substituting tasty alternatives (including vegan alternatives to dairy) for longer and longer periods of time after a Master Cleanse. What I notice is that sooner or later I begin to stray and begin eating and snacking on foods that don’t support feelings of vitality. When I first begin to get a sense that it’s happening, I also witness rising numbers on digital bathroom scale first thing in the morning. When I start seeing numbers that feels like a threshold, my serious consideration of my next cleanse, begins.

To be transparent I’m feeling that NOW, so GET READY FOR MY UPCOMING AUTUMN CLEANSE.

You are welcome to join me. Let me know in a comment below, okay? I haven’t fully integrated my AVMC group into this site yet, but want you to still be able to get the support you need.

In fact, I’m considering a brief one NEXT WEEK before my upcoming 4 Day New Paradigm Shift event in Berkeley, and a longer one right after for the Autumn Equinox.

I choose the Master Cleanse because it’s the simplest, most efficient and most affordable system that I’ve found for a total body – mind RESET. It’s also minimally invasive physically, and mentally, probably because it’s also so wonderful spiritually and deciding on what foods to purchase prepare and eat consume a huge part of our day. Time slows down on the Master Cleanse. Mindfulness is a given.

I’ve named my version of the program Ageless Vitality Master Cleanse because that’s how it feels to me. I feel more flexible and youthful as time goes on. Each cleanse goes deeper and offers new epiphanies. It is my joy to empower others to have a similar experience of success and a rise in their self esteem, for those truly committed, to complete a full 10 days with a 3-4 day ease off. That is a successful Ageless Vitality Master Cleanse.

Experimenting with new foods and recipes and feeling on top of one’s game is a glorious reward once we get back into eating. It is essential to have a plan. I’ve done it with and without and a plan is a good thing. 10 Days, well actually 13-16 days goes by a heck of a faster than you would imagine… so having a plan of action in place is ideal.

Is It Possible To Directly Experience the 12th Dimension?

The Stargate Experience

Stargate Top ViewAn earlier version of this article was posted by Shima Moore on Dec 10, 2013

Had my introduction to The Stargate not been through someone I thoroughly respect and admire, I might have missed out entirely on such a profound experience of quantum reality. However, after a longtime friend and business partner from SoCal, first stumbled upon the 12th Dimensional experience himself in Hot Springs, Arkansas at a  12.12.12 Event, he could barely contain his excitement and praise of this ahhhmazing “meditation.”

It was almost a full year later when he alerted me that The Stargate was coming to my neighborhood for the weekend. Even so, without my knowledge of his excitement, a Stargate might not have been enough to entice my attention away from anticipated seasonal festivities and parties kicking off the holidays. As such, my commitment initially was solely to attend a three-hour “introductory” session. After all it was almost knocking on my door, right here in Southern Marin.

My very first Stargate was on Friday night. December 6, 2013, in Sausalito at the water’s edge— it was a cold, wet, and dark. That it was the opening of one of my favorite annual seasonal events had me torn —the festive “ICB Art Reception Opening,” was happening at the same time just a few blocks away at the Industrial Center Building. So the Stargate experience was a direct conflict. Bay Area friends traditionally congregate each year to enjoy three floors of magnificent artwork of ICB artists, and a high-energy opening night party, across the street, at The Seahorse Nightclub.

I had invited another longtime  friend Debra Guisti to join me for the introductory Stargate event, since I had a feeling it would be something with which she would resonate. We decided to meet before hand at Le Garage Restaurant to catch up and enjoy a bowl of delicious warming squash soup and crisp endive salad on what turned out to be a bitterly chilly wet evening. The restaurant was at the end of the dock just a short walking distance from the Sausalito Healing Center, where the Stargate Experience was being held.

The charming center, which overlooked the harbor with a majestic view of Mount Tamalpais, offered a variety of movement and therapy during the day. Up ’til that evening I didn’t know it existed. What a great spot!


When Debra and I arrived, the room’s perimeter was already lined with people of all ages sitting with “backjacks,” or on folding chairs, surrounding a 6-foot tall geometrically designed structure (pictured above). Most people were wearing layers of warm clothes, sitting on thick yoga blankets or wrapped up in both.

I was surprised to discover that this was not the first time Stargates International founder, Prageet Harris had brought The Stargate Experience to Marin;  in fact, I realize that I may have even seen flyers about it while shopping at Open Secret Bookstore in San Rafael, where other events had taken place.

Chances are friends and associates of mine may have already witnessed what I can now describe as a “profound” experience, but up to that moment, I hadn’t even considered that possibility.

Crystals and incense were not a part of the event. Neither was chanting or any other New Age accouterments, rather a soft-spoken, silver haired Englishman simply invited everyone to relax and without expectations.

“There is no right or wrong way to experience the Stargate,” he offered encouragingly as he shared a bit about his 25-year journey in realms beyond a typical Friday night in Sausalito.

His voice was warm and inviting and his two cohorts, Gregg Bartow, The Realm Ryder, an accomplished musician who accompanied each of the “meditations” with live ethereal music and Julieanne Conard, a lovely angelic-looking young woman who worked with Prageet in grounding the energy and accelerating the vibrational field of the Stargate itself to a 12th Dimension and giving voice to our entreats in welcoming the angelic realm, Gaia, fairies, ascended masters, and intergalactic star beings.  As “out there” or “woo woo” as it might sound, my personal experience was powerful and indisputably solid.

I felt ahhhmazingly peaceful, powerful tuned in to an altered state and a noticeable shift in my perception during the short mediations and afterwards. The meditation and the Stargate were purported to reawaken our DNA.

I liked how I felt throughout the evening and decided to return the next day from 10 am- 5:30pm. At the end of the day on Saturday,  I decided to return once again the following morning. This “meditation” was not a typical experience in my decades-long familiarity and practice of meditation.

StargateSR3.14After the weekend,  I knew that I wanted to actively introduce Marin to The Stargate Experience by co-producing ongoing and ever-expanding events with Prageet and Julianne in homes, recreational centers and hotels throughout the county as well as traveling to Maui and Mount Shasta to attend 2, 3 and 4-day Intensives. .   .

Yes, something palpable has been stirred within me and continues to get more pronounced each time I experience the Stargate and listen to the  Stargate’s guide Alcazar… through Prageet and Julieanne.


Join me in further adventures in “Forays Into the AHHHsome,” as we venture to  The Stargate and other journeys that empower Body, Mind and Spirits.

~ This is truly a gloriously powerful time to be alive, don’t you think?

Approaching Astrology with New Eyes

Last year I embarked upon a new journey in my appreciation of astrology. I’ve dabbled in the field for decades, even more since purchasing my first professional astrological program in 1987, the year remembered by some folks for the Harmonic Convergence.

Jose Arguellos introduced the Mayan Calendar to the New Age community that year when he ushered in this memorable event celebrated around the world. It was the initial foreshadowing of the world coming to end December 21, 2012. There’s much to be said about the prediction and what actually occurred and is occurring, but we will address that another time.

Prior to 1987, I had been sparked by the possibilities of self-knowledge that I instinctively felt was available through an understanding of astrology, but it wasn’t truly until that fateful day, while visiting a used bookstore in Colorado Springs that  I first embarked in earnest in utilizing astrology as a path in my life.

Ironically, that hot summer day was my one and only trip down into town from a rustic metaphysical school in the Blue Mountain hills, where  I was manager for the summer. Several of the used books I purchased that day remain in my ever- growing collection of reference books.

Upon returning to my beachside retreat in Malibu, a month or so later, I had access to my first computer—a Macintosh SE, so I sought out and purchased my first professional astrological program. It was then that I grokked the astrological implications of that very day. My progressed sun was conjunct Uranus, implicating sudden awakenings, astrology and computers. I’ll save the many adventures emerging from that moment for another time.

Jump to present time.

Happily, I  finally have all my ducks in a row as an astrological educator, I taught an “Astrology 101: Demystifying the Basics,” onboard a Shaman Cruise to Alaska in June 2015 and, through the years I’ve taught several seminars at various Expos. I even had my own cable-TV show (Astrological Awareness, Insights & Motivation) for a while.

Although I offer a variety of delicious professional reports, with introductions, to clients, I’ve recently begun to include the point-of-view of the ancients in my ever-evolving inquiry. Just before the cruise I had begun an astrological immersion course online with hopes of honing my skills even more. I  had no idea how much of my astrological understanding was about to shift.

To be continued…

I’ve begun to add some recommended books to my own shelves and wanted to give you access as well.

Here’s an easily digested book that has lots of insightful info with a traditional POV.

Success Mindset for a 10-Day Master Cleanse


I’m in no hurry to rush the seasons; in fact, summer’s only slightly more than a week old… but, as a waxing gibbous (almost full) Sagittarius moon will soon be full, it’s an ideal time to celebrate manifesting initial stages in transferring archival blogs to a brand new website. Thanks for growing with me on this ever-evolving journey . . .

~ Welcome to ~

There is NO success without the correct mindset.

Whether we have studied Abraham-Hicks, watched The Secret, read Napolean Hill, listened to any number of motivational or inspirational teachers or read the bible, most people are pretty much aware of the phase “As a man [Woman] thinketh, so he is.”*

Today is one of a most glorious day in the Bay Area, better than this entire summer…a wonderful segue into autumn. It’s true, fall offers our best days of “summer” weather here in the San Francisco Bay area, especially along the coast.

So, after a wonderful yoga class, and hunting down organic lemons at Paradise Market (note to self: finding organic lemons is no small feat this time of the year), I decided to stretch my legs before sitting down at my laptop to work.

As I walked along the along the scenic bay trail at Blackie’s Pasture, in Tiburon, deeply breathing fresh bay air, luxuriating in the warmth of gentle sunshine and appreciating magnificent views, I thought about some of the remarks I have been hearing from friends the last few days regarding their inability to even conceive of doing a Master Cleanse.

At the time, I was feeling a bit hungry yet considering how satisfying it is to consume nutrients that are simple, satisfying and detoxing, and only take a minimal expenditure of energy. It was wonderful not having to think about what I wanted to eat, and then shopping for whatever that might be—generally tasty and nutritious, though not necessarily out-of-this-world delicious—then preparing it and all too often feeling sluggish or tired afterwards. Or maybe something I would eat on the way to an activity—eating too fast, as a result or even while I’m doing something else, like being on my computer or watching TV.

What I realized, is that my focus while I”m on a Master Cleanse, is totally different than when I’m eating as I would normally. But, once my mind and intention are clear in committing to do a Cleanse on such and such date, it really becomes relatively easy. And, day-to-day results I experience — and feel—almost every step of the way, make it even more rewarding

Like Walking on Fire

The “almost” reminds me of walking on fire with Tony Robbins, which I did in 1987 at the Marriott Hotel at LAX. I remember while walking on top of hot coals, I didn’t feel the heat at all, until I dropped my focus for just a split second. Doing the Master Cleanse is sometimes like that… I never thought of it like that ’til this very minute. Generally I put all my focus on where I’m going for the next 10-days, watching inches whittling away, belts fitting again, eliminating puffiness, increasing flexibility and strength, feeling fit and rejuvenated… the rewards of my commitment and doing the program step-by-step, day-by-day.

Today, by the way, is Day 8 on this go around of the Cleanse. My weight loss has tapered off a bit, which is not surprising. In fact, after an astonishing 8-pound weight loss in the first 5 or 6 days, then another half pound, it makes sense. Nonetheless, I am seeing a shift in that weight: a chiseling of my features and a toning of my body, along with added strength and flexibility from eliminating stored deposits of toxins… nice.

How Beyoncé Lost 20 Pounds in Two Weeks

WARNING: I was just reading how Beyoncé lost 20 pounds in two weeks, though she DID eat along the way! That always baffles me. The Master Cleanse is a specific formulation, anything else is an adaptation… AND, of course, because she really didn’t change her habits, she gained it all back.

“For things to change I’VE got to change.”

I know that’s the case. We all do. If I go back to eating how I did before a cleanse, there’s a very good possibility I’m going to gain it back and, in fact, I’ve experienced doing just that . . .though it generally takes awhile.

The truth is, that’s the way it is ALWAYS. If you go back to doing whatever you were doing before—in ANY situation—your results are going to be the same. DUH!

My Reset Button

For me the Master Cleanse is like my reset button. It’s a kind of “do-over.”

I get to do all the same things that got me in trouble before I began I started the program, or make new choices. After my third cleanse, I chose to become a vegan, which has proven to be a wonderful adventure.

Now, a couple of years later, I’m considering being more aware of my choices gluten-wise.

At the very least, introducing gluten back slowly. In fact, after a three-day ease-out after the Cleanse itself, which I get to start in a couple of days, I’m considering adding foods one at a time. Just to see how I feel. I’ll let you know how that goes.

In the meanwhile, is it time for you to consider what kinds of changes you want to make in your life?

I look forward to your feedback.

Happy change of seasons. Happy Autumn.

The Lemonade Diet, Day One

6.30.15Today is the last day of June 2015.

Sunshine, blue skies and a green-hillside dotted with various sizes of evergreens are visible from my living-room office. It’s somewhat miraculous this time of year (June 2015) to enjoy days like this at my Tennessee Valley mountaintop getaway.

Summertime generally draws in a thick marine layer from the Pacific Ocean, which is just over the ridge… No complaints, but I do prefer sunshine, color and a soft breeze

I returned from an Alaskan Seminar-at-Sea Shamanic Cruise 11 days ago. I had booked several keynote speakers for the cruise and did a presentation myself, entitled “Demystifying Your Divine Blueprint.”

As I continue to shift back into my everyday schedule, I’m thoroughly delighted to have completed—finally— just yesterday—a major project that’s been looming for a long time… transferring my blogs from a former third-party website to my all-new website.

Whew… it has been a MEGA process! Thanks for your patience, this could take a while.  In the meantime, here are a few blogs that are still relevant TODAY.

Here’s a  re-post about from April 08, 2013 … Let me know your thoughts.

The Master Cleanse aka Lemonade Diet     MC_kit                                                   

For the next 10  days these  ingredients and  paraphernalia is all I will need  to feel absolutely  fabulous inside and out. . . . 

If I were to think about this 10-Day Ageless-Vitality Master Cleanse aka, “The Lemonade Diet,” as a TV series, this would be Season 2, Episode 2.  Since January 2011, two years ago, this is my sixth 10-day (or longer) episodic adventure on The Lemonade Diet (always followed by a 3-day ease off re-entry back into the world of eating normally). 

For me, “normally” means healthy, non-GMO, and organic whenever possible and necessary; many fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds…are GMO or notoriously sprayed with pesticides…. More on that another time…

Normal also means primarily vegan. From time-to-time, I do enjoy organic raw butter, sheep feta cheese and Parmigiano-Reggiano, made from raw cow’s milk. Generally though I do not eat cheese. In any case, my intentions is not to make a religion out of what I do and do not eat… if you know what I mean. This was not always the case. 😉

The situation and environments in which I’ve under taken my previous 10-Day Master Cleanses has been different every time. Sometimes I’ve been in social settings, sometimes out in the world working amidst others, sometimes in houses with delicious smelling food for breakfast, lunch and dinner being cooked, sometimes in retreat-like settings. Being off by myself in a retreat-like setting is my favorite, but they all can and do work. This cleanse I’m house-sitting for a friend who has an enclosed garden and hot tub; my schedule is flexible, so I can work my own hours uninterrupted by anyone except Qi, the kitty. Ahhh, paradise! There are times, I go into a Master Cleanse “kicking and screaming.” It’s somewhat like that now, but “the die is cast,” my intentions set and so, the adventure begins.

The Lemonade Diet: Simple, Pure Ingredients


It’s time to freeze or give away any perishable food in the refrigerator, ’cause for at least the next 10 days, these ingredients pictured above are what will be nourishing and cleansing my body. Three simple, healthful , all-organic foods: fresh lemons, grade-B maple syrup and cayenne pepper. The best quality of all three plus good water, organic herbal teas and real salt (I’ll talk more about why salt later. Suffice it to say, I will not be adding salt to my Elixir)


For “good” water, I generally refill non-BPA plastic gallon jugs at Glacier Water stations. It’s affordable, at 35¢ a gallon and it has a multi-level filtration system that is checked frequently. Bottled water in plastic, left in the sun is unhealthy, and this way I’m the one who’s responsible for what I’m drinking.

My preference would be to drink water gathered along the roadside from fresh mountain streams like I enjoyed in Sedona, Arizona last summer, but since I’m now living in the North Bay I do the best I can. I’m opened to a better affordable source.

I called Glacier Water about fluoride and they told me that their filtration system does remove fluoride. If you know another system that includes filtering out the fluoride currently found in Marin’s water, please be sure to comment below. I’ve bought and sent back home systems that don’t.

By the way,  always feel free to share your ideas, comments, questions and your experiences as we go along

The Lemonade Diet: Unexpected Benefit

Besides keeping track of when I drink my delicious elixir—as I lick the spoon after pouring two tablespoons into a 10-ounce glass, it’s easy to remind myself how lucky I am to enjoy such a yummy drink made with pure maple syrup. Another perk of this 10-Day journey to transformation, is that when I’m on The Lemonade Diet time opens up dramatically. There’s little to no time shopping, no cooking and little clean up. It’s astounding how much time those three actions alone use up each and every day in our lives.

I plan on using some of my new found time to use my friend’s bicycle to enjoy warm spring-like weather here in Marin since I live on top of a huge hill, and she lives in a valley.

What will you do with all the time you save on your 10-Day Master Cleanse?

The Lemonade Diet: Mastering Re-framing

You’ll hear me using words like “elixir” and later, during the ease-off stage, “nectar” throughout this experience. When people ask me about the Master Cleanse, and find out about it, most of them think “starvation.” It’s no wonder they barely last a day. I could not be successful if I thought about this experience in that way and neither can they. It’s important to consider all the wonderful benefits our bodies experience when incorporating this time-tested healing modality temporarily into our lives.

Personally, I love the transformational aspect of this 10-day program—and it’s immediate, I start to feel it working within the first day or two. And I appreciate the ageless-vitality component. Within three days, my skin glows. I noticed this benefit specifically because people regularly comment on it. It’s also an easy way to keep my weight balanced. Rather than to obsess about gaining a few pounds, I allow my weight to fluctuate a bit during different seasons, because I know I can control it in 10-short days. I’ve never liked “dieting” but I’ve been a advocate of cleansing and detoxing for good health since my twenties.

By the way, although I prefer beginning on a new moon— an ideal time for new beginnings of all kinds, I tend to take into account weekends and being social in my planning. Mondays are a great day to begin. Preplanning is important because to start on Monday, I want to drink a tasty herbal laxative tea before bed Sunday night.
