Please join live (or receive the recording) in this no-cost blessing celebration and ceremony for amplifying the unique song of your essence, sourced from within and expressing outwards to reshape your reality.
In my experience, this is the greatest gift we can give to support the emergent new reality. We shape it through our BEing, through expressing our essence, through amplifying our unique Song of Essence, what the Seer Almine calls the “Song of Self.”
11-11 Blessing Ceremony
You are invited into deeper alignment with your inner being and to amplify your unique “Song of Self” during this potent time. I convene and hold the sacred space in partnership with the Infinite and with the field of Belvaspata, the source of this “Song of Self” practice. You are invited to relax and receive. You are invited to celebrate your BEing as an expansive resource in co-creating your own new reality.
This space-opening ceremony is the portal to a longer engagement, and this may — or may not — be your time to engage at that next level.
The headwinds may have lessened — just slightly — on our journey into Befriending the Unknown. However, even the President-Elect noted that we are “at an Inflection Point.”
What this means is that the outer sphere now publicly recognizes this pivot point. It’s the place we’ve been playing and cultivating deep underground for quite some time. The new-reality-co-creation project — that all life flourishes — is the heart of my journey in partnership with Yin Arising, as collectively we learn what it means and how to Befriend the Unknown.
Many of us have been working underground and as background support for this time and this emergence. We are co-creating this invisible and invincible infrastructure of new reality in partnership with the forces of Yin Arising and others in invisible realms. This joyous play of our fullest expression in emergence is more timely than ever. Maintaining our focus is even more crucial.
The WayMakers, Evolutionaries, Change Catalysts, and Conscious Creators — you and I — are here at this inflection point to open the field of invisible potentiality even further.
And it starts with each of us opening to RECEIVE: To receive the blessings and gifts that emerge as we align with and magnify the unique essence of our song. As each songline comes into its fullest expression and radiant alignment with the flows of the One Life, we become the living alchemy of this sacred moment that opens the way for new realities.
Are you ready, willing, and able to receive? Then say yes to you. If you are reading this and want to join in, you can contact me by sending me an email at BJMiddendorf(at)gmail(dot)com If you want to understand more about the longer journey, Befriending the Unknown: Deepening Journey to Tend Your Inner Garden, you can read more at this link.
Further Backstory on 11-11
Nine years ago, at a retreat on the Big Island that encompassed 11-11-11, I allowed myself to be witnessed by an intimate circle of beloveds in claiming and owning the title “divine priestess” for the first time I recall in this lifetime.
Nine years on, and it still isn’t how I typically show myself … And yet I now publicly admit to “partnering in co-creation with Infinite Mother,” and claim “Yin Arising” as the overarching umbrella of my body of work. So, yes, this date offers a pivotal marker for me of more profoundly claiming my role and my power.
Since then, evolution has happened, of course. Evolutionaries gotta evolve. And so the journey and expression continues and expands. Thank you for walking with me along this evolutionary edge.
Part 2–Deepening Journey to Tend Your Inner Garden
WayMakers— Our Second Wave Beckons. After August and September with our WayMaker Initiation Circle, October was a potent period in which to integrate all that we’d practiced and worked on during late summer.
During that time, several of you joined me for a series of Sacred Space-Holding sessions during a particularly intense time. Our Intent lived as carryover from WayMaker practices — Co-creating a reality where all life flourishes.
This continues as the “bottom line” or what I call the meta-intent, for all that I’m doing to move forward in my Yin Arising body of work.
What is this second wave? During the Samhain Seasonal Sacred Circle, I received the latest iteration: Befriending the Unknown: Deepening Journey to Tend Your Inner Garden
Currently, it’s designed to run from approximately Mid Nov. – Mid Feb., gathering approximately every 10-14 days, through the holidays that aren’t going to be like any we’ve experienced before.
From here (the inner garden), our new realities germinate, or so I’ve been told. 😉
What we will explore together is co-creating and amplifying the field of sacred resonance that is already present (and growing). Our tapping this resonance field and living it, IS the living birth-process of new reality emerging. Through us. As us.
We started at the Samhain Seasonal Sacred Circle, stirring and nourishing roots in the dark, as we move through the last octuple of the year into Winter Solstice, return of the light.
We are each called to play our unique part in this unfolding. There are very few places where you receive the strength of a field of sacred-holding and support to #InquireWithin and #ApprenticeToYourOwnInnerWisdom … amidst a community of radiantly open-hearted beings. This is your unique journey. I support us all. In holding the fluid container, I evoke spaciousness so we can all pour our creative flows through and into the cauldron. What emerges IS the new reality sourced from within each one.
A reminder of the credo from the WayMaker invitation:
WayMakers Travel light, and BE the light that encompasses all. Be the calm center, and allow storms to play out as they will. Travel together, in the unifying direction of through. Travel far, though you journey not. Claim the vessel of your being From whence new reality springs. Grow the secret garden From whence new reality emerges.
(With the addition, this time, of the final 2 lines.)
Yes, we each have our unique songs and expressions to bring into our inner secret sacred gardens. We grow, each one, a unique expression of living garden. AND, the greater field, Infinite Mother’s meta-garden, is already present. What has been “missing,” so to speak, has been US, as we awaken to this as a delicious potentiality within our horizon.
So yes, in one sense, we are co-creating and holding the template and space for this new reality to be co-created and birthed through us as participants.
And at the same time, we are called to birth ourselves into IT, the already-living field of the Mother. #BothAnd
This remains experimental, just as WayMaker Initiation Circle was. However, this time, I have been guided to share a rough map (outline) of our content for deepening into this garden-tending-journey.
Map for OUR Inner Garden-Tending Journey
Cultivate Your Intent—for the inner-tending-journey
Navigate by Nature—Discovering your unique way of deepening into your sacred inner garden space
Attune to Your Field of Hope and Blessing—Aligning with the greater container for amplifying your song of self
Evoke & Invoke Your Garden and Allies—Connecting with the 5 elements, your inner family members, allies, ancestors, angels, and … ?
Immerse in WayMaker Practices—deepening your roots and presence; Magnifying your garden’s growth; Gathering, refining, remembering to USE what is in your Medicine Satchel!
Leverage Your Enoughness—Having Enough, Being Enough, and Miraculous Leveraging from that wholeness ever-present
At the Core of Creation—You and your Garden as locus for the emerging new reality
The journey is dynamic, so we will experience it in the moment and trust where it takes us. Thus, we continue with the second wave of the WayMaker Journey, Befriending the Unknown: Deepening Journey to Tend Your Inner Garden.
Tending and deepening into the sacred garden within, and within the greater field of Infinite Mother, we continually refine and strengthen practices, creations, processes, and self from inside-out, thus expanding in self-trust. Your questions, concerns, and current challenges are also welcome. We witness, inquire, and lighten burdens through clearing and other inquiry and releasing practices.
This engagement of approximately 3 months offers a fluid, experimental structure, and it’s yours to lean into — just as far as you choose.
Are you called to engage? Read carefully, tune in, and inquire within. If, as you review this invitation, you sense something calling you into deepening, then consider these particulars for engaging in Part 2 of the journey, Beloved WayMaker!
What I know now: this looks to be at least 8 sessions spaced approximately every 10 days to 2 weeks, including the 2 seasonal circles. WayMakers receive the Winter Solstice gathering, with the return of the light; and Imbolc, in early February, celebrating the earliest signs of spring. Another likelihood, now tickling my awareness, is mini-virtual retreat, probably in early December.
Gatherings may include: Centering/grounding experiences; Promptings for inquiring within and connecting to inner wisdom, Deep listening sessions; QA sessions; Sharing-Our-Practices sessions; and more to be revealed… … which now includes additional Co-Working Sessions where we amplify our commitment to create/make/develop by doing it in a shared Zoom space.
You will receive a healing circle at least weekly via Belvaspata and other healing-wholeness-space-holding sessions (currently planned as offline, but could be done live); plus daily Belvaspata angelic-wholeness maintenance sessions that continue for 6 months after completion of this circle. Your specific intentions are welcome to be placed into the circle for the radiant-heart-wholeness sessions.
Recordings. Check. Prompts. Check. Space-time to engage and share — if you want to. Check. Private Facebook space. Check.
Dates, days, times to be determined in consultation with those who choose to participate; jointly agreed on and possibly switched up, depending on global time zones of participants.
We are each co-creating our own unique reality. We practice this reality co-creation together throughout this part 2, deepening journey — and beyond.
As convener and circle-holder, I point out possibilities and perspectives from my own experience. You are invited to share yours.
I hold the initial vision, its Vessel + Sacred Circle, and our field of shared intent. You get to experience depths within and nuances of shaping (holding) your own reality and cultivating your garden— in your own unique way — while receiving support in our shared container.
I share practices both in real time sessions and asynchronously. With the latter, you are invited to receive the potency into your own field in your most perfect timing. There are also opportunities for you to share and refine your most potent practices, perceptions, and understandings.
I am holding the sacred circle with support from various realms and modalities so that you can relax and receive as fully as you are willing. Simultaneously, you are learning and refining your own circle-holding capacities.
We connect within to inspired WayMaker practices to build the muscles of self-trust. You may have, in your own medicine satchel, practices that serve you well already. We gather, share, refine, and strengthen together during these unfathomable times.
Tend your garden through the dark of the year and into the turn into the light. Your sacred exchange for this experimental program is $180, or $60 per month, payable via PayPal. (If there is another sacred exchange you would like to propose, please contact me directly. If you need to pay monthly, please let me know. We can work that out.)
Play-Full Co-Creation Nurturing Your Life Force Amplifying Your Song of Self Joyous emergence
My devoted commitment to you.
Bobbye Middendorf, MA, is Spoken Word Alchemist, Yin Arising mentor, mystic & catalyst for evolutionaries, WayMaker for WayMakers, inner wisdom guide, and award-winning wordsmith and healer. She created The Self-Presencing Experience as process-and-practices for visionaries and conscious creators to embody their own wholeness, unique fields of potentiality, and amplified song-of-self. Finding and activating this evolutionary edge, they can embody hope, self-grounding, self-trust, resilience, and joy. Their regenerativity blossoms with clarity, with expansive expression making life a work of art.
Bobbye “… has an unusual ability to hold space by carefully tending to the creation of a safe and deep container, through the patience and holding of her deep listening and through her caring wisdom. The result is that one sees oneself and one’s situation more clearly, more fully, and with more compassion.”
Veils thinned, & time for deep-nurturing of our roots in the dark, we gather. Centering, grounding, inquiring within via sacred journaling, tender sharing in a circle of radiant witnessing:
Let us pivot the ancient traumas of the wise ones into luminous wholeness that births the new reality we are co-creating.
You are invited …
We are called into the dark of the year to refresh, replenish, regenerate, and stir the roots of our being with the deep sustenance of divine feminine presence. Yin Arising is not only rising, this feminine principle is living anew in all beings and coming forth.
Metaphysically, the entire cosmos is transforming from old paradigm outside-in models and practices. Yes, you’re seeing them breaking down beneath your feet. And moving TO — Inside-Out. Make way for the Goddess.
What it is: I hold a sacred circle space, amidst massive outer de-structuring and the transformations we’ve longed for, yet didn’t expect. You?
You are invited to put yourself into the center of your own circle of “Self-Care Sunday,” as one of my beloved mentors calls it… (Plus the session will be recorded so you can revisit at any point, AND you can come to it in your own perfect timing, if needed.)
You are invited to #InquireWithin to access your own inner depths, so to root yourSelf into your own inner landscape for co-creating a new reality. We are called to nothing less than this!
In Sunday’s (Nov. 1) Sacred Circle of self-nurture + journaling- your-perceptions as you attune to your inner wisdom, we experience spaciousness for stretching roots into the depths and fertile darkness. We activate profound self-nourishment, and cultivate from within the new reality that is being birthed through us, as us, and beyond us.
For Your Calendar 1-2:30 MOUNTAIN STANDARD TIME … Sunday 1 November 2020 *via Zoom and recorded ~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~= If you know me, have attended one of my seasonal virtual circles before, and you want to reserve time in your schedule: Details for your calendar: Sunday, 1 November at 1 PM Mountain STANDARD Time (US) What time in your world? Check here: https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/ We will meet on Zoom for apprx 90 minutes. The event will be recorded. The first hour will include at least one centering and/or meditative visualization, plus multiple writing prompts and time to listen to and record YOUR insights and inner wisdom through your writing (or drawing or whatever is your mode of creation). The last (approximately) half hour will be a time to share into our circle, to witness and be witnessed, if you choose. This seasonal circle is offered in sacred exchange on a pay-from-your heart model — explained at this link. ~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~= Please join me for Seasonal Samhain (All Saints) Gathering, offered in sacred exchange as pay-from-the-heart.
October’s second full moon, a Blue Moon, will be on 31 October, All Hallow’s Eve. Lean into Mama Moon’s elegant support!
This entire “season” of immersing in the rich sacred feminine dark of the year is acknowledged in different traditions — Samhain from the Celtic tradition, Dia De Los Muertos in the Hispanic tradition, a cross-quarter holy day in the Wicca tradition, and the Catholics weigh in with All Saints’ Day, Nov. 1, a “holy day of obligation,” and the following All Souls’ Day for those deemed not saintly enough…
I invite you into this cozy and self-supportive time out of time sacred circle gathering. Together we honor and mark this seasonal node of many names in multiple traditions.
Seasonally (in the Northern Hemisphere), we enter the dark octuple of the year between now and the Winter Solstice.
We gather in celebration of our living roots that stir in fertile and nurturing darkness, while reconnecting with Mama Gaia who is in her own reset and time of replenishment.
It’s a sacred space for you to bring forward awareness, appreciation, attunement, and activation to your inside-out Ways.
We go deep first– and fast– with a centering, then there are prompts that offer you grounding and access points into your own depths of wisdom ready to come forth. For about an hour, you deepen into the radiant wisdom of your being as you #InquireWithin, then the last half hour (approximately) is time and space to share insights, and the fractals of our sacred interconnections.
If you feel a tug of resonance and interest, mark your calendar for Sunday, 1 Nov 2020 at 1 PM MST til apprx 2:30 PM. (NOTE: time changes in US and Canada early AM on this day.)
I love you and honor you so much! Your presence is a treasure to me and in my life.
Whether this particular circle calls to you, know that you are forever loved and held in a tender embrace of your own radiant wholeness.

Lake Geneva, WI — Just across the Wisconsin border from the greater Chicago area’s suburbs, the spring-fed Lake Geneva beckons summer vacationers into a delicious playground amid idyllic small towns and groves of 100-year-old trees. Dotted along its 26-mile circumference, resorts, summer homes, conference centers and camps abound. A public path circles the lake, so that all can enjoy its pleasures close-up.
On June 22, I was heading into the third night of my retreat with theDreams Aliveand Relax-Online partners, Paul Bauer and Susan Castle, along with their Hawaiian friend and co-leader, Keahi. We convened a sacred circle of like-hearted fellow-travelers on a path of growing ourselves, our consciousness, and our ability to flow from the heart with whatever life tosses in our direction. (Think curve balls.)
On Solstice Monday morning, three of our heart-full friends departed, making our intimate group even more so. During the week-long retreat, I entered deeply into the magic of the moment, a serene setting and powerful teachers moving internal energies that have been stuck seemingly for lifetimes.
I’ve gotten myself off schedule for the blog challenge. I realize that I didn’t even finish editing the post that I automatically posted on Father’s Day. I cringed when I saw that it had published. “Oops,” I thought.
Lesson: Make sure you’ve completely cleared /cleaned the post before you schedule it!
Trying to put this retreat experience into words is a challenge and beyond. The transformations are so profound that to write about them somehow diminishes the power in the moment. Words that embody the essence of the experience simply can’t do it justice.
For pragmatic business people, doing personal growth and development work at deep levels like this is both crucial and yet seemingly impossible. It appears to be the opposite of practical.
Yet I suggest that this process of finding the essence of your life purpose and clearing the obstacles that have kept you from living fully into that purpose is among the most practical and foundational work imaginable. It opens the door for the right business relationships to grow from the rooted heart of who you are and why you are here.
The retreat was all-consuming for seven delicious days. The internet connection was something that, if used at all, had to be mindfully approached. Although it was available, it was not convenient and ever-present.
So, I got off track. I didn’t manage to pre-write the posts either. This is coming to you a week after I wrote it. I want to express my appreciation to each of you for your love and support.
From my heart,
The Write Synergies Guru
In convening this sacred circle community, I am putting into it everything I know about writing, communicating, creating, and publishing; about consciousness and spirituality; about marketing, connection-making, and tribe-building; and about co-creating a community of compatible, purposeful, like-minded conscious creators. I invite you to join me on the journey. It encompasses wild and unbroken territories that we will explore together and so create the maps so that others can follow.
I have been frozen like a deer in the headlights for a while. Or maybe it has been the seed deep underground, slowly putting out tender shoots into the light. In so many of our conversations, you have heartened me with your love and support. I am breaking free, extricating myself from this thrall of inertia. And, yes, the 30 Day Blog Challenge has been instrumental in a shift to public presence.
In such times as ours, dire emergencies call for us to come together in love instead of fear. Partnering with like-minded fellow travelers, together we are blessed with the right words to initiate our dialogues and open our space, to connect the many dots that our multivalent and interdisciplinary explorations have brought to light. We are creating new and collaborative partnerships for birthing big visions, creative brainchildren, and the gifts and greatness we came here to share.
Together and in collaborative community, we unpack the knowledge and insights long-buried. We tread the pathways that are our sacred circle, creating the safe haven for shining our lights.
