Gateway for expanding cosciousness

Shining Light in a Changing World

This website is a portal for awakening to the new paradigm. It is a gateway for expanding awareness and attuning to the music of the spheres. By connecting the Heart of the Earth with the Heart of the Sky, through our Heart of Hearts, we align with the cosmic energies of this amazing age and come into harmony within. The adjacent Video is your invitation to The Fifth Tarot class series. Enjoy!


For years we created Ceremonies at sacred sites, as all is shifting we choose our hearts to be the sacred site. As we listen to our hearts and take action we focus on our families and those right in our backyard, as well as send loving energies in our meditations to our global family.


Knowledge shared and then experienced becomes wisdom. Our experiential classes and retreats allow you to integrate the insights and gifts that are gleaned, expanding consciousness and attuning to your soul purpose.


In sessions we focus on well being and true being. We assist in clearing limitations and energy blocks, restoring light and vitality of our true essence. This type of work allows us to align with our divine blueprint and true self.

O Glorious Opheleah 

O Glorious Opheleah is the story of the crystal skull known as Opheleah as told by her guardian, Teressena. The first-hand accounts of experiences with Opheleah offer insight into the tremendous gifts the crystal skulls have to share with humanity at this time.
Opheleah is a contemporary skull, a conduit of cosmic consciousness in this grand shift of an evolving age.
Listen to her wisdom and awaken the glorious being of infinite light YOU ARE!



Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

“I saw Teressena at the recommendatin of a local doctor. I was experiencing strong sensations similar to seizures. I have worked in western medicine for over 10 years and knew they would likely treat me with mainstream medicine. With Teressena, I was confident we could take an active role in the movement and release of this energy. I was amazed that after two sessions and approximately three weeks, the sensations were gone. This occurred during relaxing, non-traumatic sessions. I am feeling more free and have chosen to continue to work with Teressena on my spiritual path. I highly recommend her.”

A. from San luis obispo

“My experiences in Palenque were mind blowing. Being welcomed by the founders of this powerful place at the same time I felt that I was transported to the time they came to Palenque, with the desire of helping us to evolve, ascend and complete our learning process in Earth, was spectacular. 
I wish that everyone who is in the path of discovering themselves, will find your Sacred Journeys and would dare to take a leap of faith and join both of you, so they can experience a quantum leap in their awakening and ascension as I did.
If I could, I will travel with you every year!”                                                      

Maria, Palm Beach Fl

“It is hard to put into words the experience of the journey I took to Mexico with the Bakens.  I had not been prepared for the beauty of the many locations we visited all rich in culture and spiritual consciousness. We participated in many rituals with the native people who opened their homes and hearts to us on the journey.  Many of the sites we visited had such strong vibrational energy that the effects could be felt long after leaving the location. I would recommend this journey to anyone who is looking for something that they may not have been sure they needed.”

Rebekah, Simi Valley Ca
