"Why is this incredible event being held in Las Vegas? Las Vegas is a remarkable story of how the city even began. Las Vegas began by a vision. There are a huge amount of natural earth and star vortexes in Las Vegas. 60% of the entire city runs on solar power. Las Vegas is one of the most visited places in the world and all that energy that is cultivated there is commonly used for parties and gambling. What we are doing in Las Vegas for this remarkable event is changing the paradigm around this city and will plant seeds to awaken more spiritual potential in this amazing Desert Vortex."

It seems that us Healers have done this several times before, whenever there is a huge change or shift, so it feels very familiar and very well needed. We need to get these people to this destination for this is vital; very, very, vital for this healing process to happen. I know that my songs are so ancient and they've been passed down and I need to pass them to the generations yet to come."
