Twin flames, soul mates, or two peas in a pod, these are common expressions that come close to describing our relationship and collaboration. But why distinguish between relationship and collaboration? Isn’t a relationship ultimately a collaboration anchored by love? Perhaps it is important to distinguish that each part represents the yin/yang of completeness and provides a foundation for individual creativity while manifesting wholeness.
Let’s take a moment to acknowledge that dualism is the view that there are two sides to everything (often in opposition); black and white, day and night, good and evil, male and female. It is a division that can lead to self described roles arbitrarily there because that’s the way things have always been done. One can take the view that our left brain masculine dominant culture is responsible for the major imbalances in the world today. There’s Hopi Indian prophecy that states, “When the grandmothers speak, the Earth will be healed.” These simple words refer to the time when the right brain representing the feminine aspect will become more present, and our culture will begin to listen to that aspect of themselves leading to a reversal of the path we are on in terms of the environmental destruction of the planet and the health of our bodies.
According to various mythologies and cosmologies, there existed a golden era where civilizations were in sync with nature and their connection to a divine source. These ancient cultures were also finely tuned to the cycles of the cosmos, observing the sky through their advance knowledge of astrology, leaving us clues to this mystery through their art and their megalithic structures. Approximately 6,000 years ago, the descent into a darker age allowed masculine energy to triumph over the dominant feminine energy that once characterized the golden age. Prior to that, civilizations all over the world prayed and performed ceremonies in honor of Goddesses such as Isis. To the Egyptians and perhaps even to prior civilizations, she represents the feminine archetype for creation and the goddess of fertility and motherhood. In statues and wall paintings, she is depicted suckling Horus much like the depiction of the Virgin Mary with baby Jesus.
The evolution of the species towards a more co-creative existence inspired our first documentary film, ‘Time is Art: Synchronicity & the Collective Dream’ which premiered around the world last year. The film follows a skeptical writer who discovers synchronicity and ultimately her path towards enlightenment. We are now working on the second part in the documentary series which is inspired by the Hopi Prophecy and teaching which essentially means, if we can get back in touch with our intuitive side, the right side of the brain, the feminine side and balance that out with the technical and left side of the brain, civilization can once again thrive. The planet can provide everything we need if only we could just stop for a moment and listen to her.
Evolving back to a matriarchal society does not mean women rule over men or that a politician is ethical just because she’s a woman, it means that there is a balance between the sexes and the way we live and co-create together.
“The separation between us and Mother Nature is a mirage.
It is reinforced by the false teaching that technology
has lifted us from the web of life.”
– John Hartke
Have you ever heard the saying, “a relationship can be for a reason, a season, or a lifetime”? We believe they can be all three simultaneously and individually. What doesn’t always happen is a collaboration with solid communication, problem solving tools, and a shared goal such as a feature film. We all have hang-ups, fragile egos, and patterns we learned from our parent’s often abusive relationships so it often feels like an uphill battle to maintain the peace.
We also both believe that time is an illusion and that it works in cycles and not in a linear sense. Because of this understanding it is not hard for us to imagine that we have shared many past lives together. Katy had one past life regression that involved Joel and their young child. It seemed that we were the only humans on a deserted island and that we had escaped a catastrophe of some kind. Perhaps that was why we’ve always been comfortable spending so much time together.
Recently we brought a new spirit into the world, Trinity Aluna Mejia is now four months old. Before she was born Katy had a reading with a person who connects you with your spirit guides and she asked Katy about her daughter. Spirit continues to guide us towards wholeness and since there is no time, she was able to contact us before manifesting here on the material plane. We named her Trinity because she completes the circle of life.
According to Drunvalo Melchizedek, in the Judeo-Christian tradition, the stages which construct the Seed of Life are said to represent the seven days of Creation, in which Elohim (God/concept of divinity) created life; Genesis 2:2-3, Exodus 23:12, 31:16-17, Isaiah 56:6-8. Within these stages, among other things, are the symbols of the Vesica Piscis (an ancient religious symbol) and Borromean rings (which represents the Holy Trinity). This is the same symbol we used in in our title art film treatment and why we feel like Trinity is the perfect name for our daughter.
We must ask ourselves, can we let our intuitive sides speak? It starts with your relationships with our husbands, wives, family members, partners and collaborators. Listen to that soft voice that tells you who is the right person for you, the right collaborator, that gut feeling nudging you in the right direction when you face a creative challenge.
