As the Phoenix rises from the ashes of fire the New Conscious Human rises through Alchemy to Transform Life

Shedding the False Self to find truth within the illusion of today’s world can be tough.  Personal life, business, career, relationships, finances, environment, creativity, spiritual seeking, religion, compassion, dominance, empathy and hate are all influenced by the lack of transparency and illusion we and others create for protection.

Yet there is one search for truth that may be the bedrock of our sanity, individually and as a humanity. It is the aeons old ‘Search for the True Self’. For I believe it is only through the finding and understanding of our own true self that the decisions made in life (both important and small) will be far more beneficial to the greater good on all.

Who Am I? Part 1 Now this may seem presumptuous to some, yet sit back for a moment and check in with your life thus far. Ponder the moments when life seemed to be true and real and then ponder those times when all was falling apart…….where was truth of self and actions and where was deception playing out!

Knowing the False Self! Part 2

We all know people who believe they are defined by their $$$ and how many material possessions are owned. Often there is envy felt at why they have so much and we or others don’t. There are also those who believe bullying, violence and taking from others makes them powerful. And then there is the vast majority of people living each day hoping, struggling, pushing and working to ‘just get by’.

Astrology and Teachers Part 3In all where is contentment, joy, happiness, peace of mind and love of self and others? If all outer world trappings disappeared Who would you be? This is the question and search as old as people have lived.

My life has always been the search. My work has always been part of the search, even when I wasn’t consciously searching.

If you are searching for some answers and directions, here are three short audio pieces on questions, ideas, tools and perspectives to start with.

This is the beginning of a series to assist along the way. My background, education and experiences over so many years have honed me to live and hopefully assist others during these interesting and challenging times…….To learn more about Ophelia, her work and art visit

Today is Yellow Magnetic Sun in the 13 Moon Mayan Calendar  –  A Day of Enlightenment and Purpose

A good day to pull the head out of the sand!

Read Full Post »

Thankfully in a few days Mercury will be in direct mode again and clarity will come to mind. I have spend the better part of the past several days trying to access my You Tube/Google accounts to upload some new videos for you. Because of technology and my limited knowledge video upload have to follow a particular protocol in order to work.  My frustration came when both YT and G said my username/passwords/emails were not correct even though I have used these in the past. After hours of reading instructions my mind could not connect with, combination’s working part way and then stopping and my stubborn insistence “that a machine will not get the better of me” only led to massive frustration but finally success or at least I hope so, they are loading onto YT as I write.

Relationships and the Connection!

As I have mentioned in earlier blogs the 5th Dimension is about grounding the upper and lower dimensions and body (reference to the chakras) into 5th Dimension present time. For a little more understanding on this read my blog entry on 5th Dimension Mysticism.

So many on any special spiritual journey, particularly in the early stages of learning the ropes, try to avoid the lower stuff (1st, 2nd, 3rd chakras) to stay high up there (5th, 6th and 7th chakras) and completely ignore or avoid the Heart.  This is part of the learning curve and pretty much every one goes through it at some stage. In the early years I was in the same place determined to be enlightened and of a higher vibration, seeking always from and trying to reside in the upper realm. The reason being it feels too painful, challenging and harsh down here!

This does change, at least it did for me, as I learned more about myself, the world of spirit, mysticism, the unseen and of nature. All to realize as part of the human experience it is to not avoid one or the other, yet it is to incorporate and integrate all.

As the days unfold between postings I become anxious as to the next posting’s focus and where the inspiration will come from. This took a little longer because of the vastness of the topic – Relationships Me/You and the Other. The answer to knowing another is to KNOW YOURSELF first and this is a life long journey. I will share with you various tools and modalities I have and do use for Me to understand Me more!

The original seed came from the piece I wrote on Lisa Kristine photography in the last entry. Her images and the faces looking back triggered a creative project which I hope to birth one day. My relationship to the Other was the clue. As further days unfolded meeting with various people as well as the engagement of Spirit realm messages breathed further life into clues.

This last week I had a reunion of sorts with Naomi Tickle, an English woman I met last November. Naomi’s gift and renown is in the fields of Personology or Face Reading and it is fascinating. So last Friday we got together and I taped an interview with her which I will share with you. I have edited it into short segments for easier viewing  – parts 1 and 2 will be here (I hope).

Social Network Relationships

Another clue into exploring this topic further took me into unfamiliar territory – the dating networks. I have a dear friend who is very familiar with them and she has had amazing and disastrous results. It was a conversation with her that prompted me to check it out – maybe I would find that “perfect person!” I signed up at Plenty of Fish and did an initial search. In the area where I am presently and then expanded it to other places I have or would like to live…..I was/am amazed at the number of people seeking connections….the perfect connection….the play connection….any connection!

Reading profiles for men of all ages and interests. Some were more along the short, to the point I want to have fun. Others shared a great deal of what they want, what they won’t accept, or perhaps what their reality can only dictate.

Next I created my own account and put it up. This was scary for me! Within a few hours I had several messages and noticed quite a lot of views of my profile. Of course I am in the “not so attractive age range” which has an impact on who will check you out. I did receive a couple of blatant date requests which were returned with a Thank you but No! Most of the other interest came from men who seemed genuine yet I am not or would not have and interested in. Last night I did have dinner with an older man who had lived in Sydney. It was nice sharing stories of living there and why he is here now. A friendship but nothing else!

You can spend hours searching through the profiles. The time just disappeared. After a while I started feeling antsy and my mind was getting fuzzy yet charged. Later as I reflected I came to this conclusion: I am very sensitive to energy and vibrations – the more I stayed on the site and searched the more I was taping into the consciousness focused throughout the site by users. With each person, thousands of men and women, their focus is on “finding the right person” and the chaos of that is amplified not only through the search process but also through their own personal chaos of who they are, what they desire, where they have been hurt, what they will accept and what they won’t accept. Lost, sad, rejected, angry, hurt – all this was so easy to read between the lines.

There is nothing like the personal meeting, the contact in real time and space. Yet because our world is so expansive in some ways and small in others, technology seems to be filling in massive gaps but at a huge price as I see it. Where do you go to meet the right person/people? How do you know when to turned at the right time and place for something to happen? How to we renew the emotional body to feel ourselves with love? I am great at asking the questions…. I am still learning as is everyone else. This investigation has reminded me of  magical meetings I have had in the past, of meetings that had a very karmic or fated quality, as though they were meant to happen to either fulfill or complete a previous encounter, from times long past. I will share a couple with you and perhaps they will awaken memories for you.

The first one was in Charlottesville, VA. One afternoon I was strolling down the Mall in downtown. It was a lovely afternoon and I was in a quiet mood just window shopping. As I walked a man was coming towards me and as he past I looked up for a split second, eyes connected and moved on. I didn’t give any more thought to it. A little while late, still in my own little world, I felt someone standing next to me at a distance. I paid no attention. A moment later this man speaks, he excuses himself and says “I am not stalking you but I need to know who you are!”  Why was my response.!

“When I saw you earlier, as we passed and our eyes connected, I saw something, I know you, I don’t understand!” I think I laughed a little as this had happened before. Something or someone seems to be looking out of my eyes (in a good way). James and I stood and chatted there for a few minutes. He shared he was visiting family but lives and works in Europe. I asked where! Vienna! Oh my Goodness! I lived in Vienna in my twenties and I told him where. He knew the exact place! How amazing is this! So over dinner that night and spending time together the next day we shared more commonalities and stories of traveling to and doing similar things in Europe. It was wonderful for the short encounter that it was. In fact we still connect by email maybe once a year and so I will sent this and I’m sure he will smile!

Another encounter along these lines was on a Sunday when I went to a Tea Dance  outside of Washington DC. I would enjoy dancing yet often became very frustrated when many of the dance partners were not so light on their feet! A gentleman comes and asks me to dance and I was about to say no but didn’t. He was overweight, about my height, a mass of unruly grey hair and a bread. But as I found out he had great rhythm, was light on his feet, loved to improvise movements and carried me around the room flowing and twirling. I was amazed! At a break was chatted and I was curious as to who he was/is. “I’m Polish, educated in Russia, speak five languages and I am a cosmologist, physicist and a biologist! I was blown away! We became great friends, loved having dinner together, he talked, I listened and learned so much. I shared my energy and sound work with him and although he would not openly admit it, he approved. When we did go out people would often do a double take, we looked like Jackie and Aristotle Onassis – complete opposites, both Aries! We still email or call each other once a year or so.

Connections like these and I am sure you also have had similar, come though the physical meeting but are initiated in or by an unseen force or recognition. This may be able to happen though the social networks but for the untrained everyday person these very subtle clues may get totally missed.  Once again learning more about oneself opens more awareness into recognizing the Other! This is the crux of living in the 5th Dimension – it is nothing new, we are just being reminded of how to Do and Be it again!

I am considering offering affordable workshops and seminars on this huge topic – Relationships – Me/You and the Other.   Let me know if you would be interest in this and where you are located

Until next time….

Greetings once again to everyone on this amazingly fast ride these days.  I thought this was going to be a short posting as my time is rather fractured (in a good way). I have been visiting Florida for a week and looking after my new grandson while Mum and Dad are off working. Over the past few days many hours have been spent sitting, cuddling, walking, feeding and enjoying this new little person….in our jaded world we forget how precious life is when first revealed.

Mother Shannon and Son bonding!

The End of an Era – Death – Dramatic Events Activate The Heart

As the cycle of life must continue everywhere across the planet, the miracle of birth awakens great joy and expectations. At the last new moon in Pisces on March 4th,  Brayden William made his appearance. Three weeks earlier in Australia my sister joined the ranks of grandparents with the birth of a granddaughter.

On March 11th,  the day of the Japanese earthquake, visionary, creator, founder and radical teacher of Human Design, Ra Uru Hu suddenly passed on and then on March 23rd another amazing visionary, creator, way-shower, ancient voice and radical teacher known as the

Father of 2012 Mayan Prophesy, Jose Aguelles, (The Mayan Factor), passed on through life’s veils. These two men led extraordinary lives, they were gifted with knowledge back in the late eighties that has literal become “planetary conscious changing”. Their sources were different although both accessed combination’s of ancient wisdom virtually lost for 5,000 years plus. They revamped it into language and structures for the people of our times to study, accept and understand. The void left by these two men is huge at the moment yet it also offers many huge opportunities for students (old and new) everywhere to pick up the reins, each in a unique way and create for the next levels/dimensions of awakened consciousness. If you are unfamiliar with the work of Ra and Jose please search for yourself, I believe you will be amazed!    Ra at  http://www.jovianarchives.com         Jose  at  http://www.lawoftime.org/home.html

And just in the past couple of days two women also departed this life….Elizabeth Taylor and Geraldine Ferraro. In their own very different ways, they were both visionary and radical teachers of a woman’s place and movement ahead in society.

Perspectives of Above and Below

My flight departed from San Francisco for the long trip to Florida via Atlanta (and its insanely long underground airport rail system.) At the airport, distance between the farthest terminal points is a mile! When the airport was built it was proudly promoted as the ‘world’s biggest bomb shelter’…..yet most of the time during peak hours it is a traveler’s nightmare!

Looking out the window to the expansive sky, clouds and landscape 37,000 feet below I realized the route we were flying was close to one of the routes I had driven back in December on my 5,000 miles road trip. Far below with Reno/Lake Tahoe to the north, snow covered mountain ranges stretched out in all directions. Long sections of road caught my eye before getting lost as they wound through the mountains, at times connecting with other roads from varying directions. Following the map in the airline magazine I watched the terrain change in Nevada, Arizona, Oklahoma and eastward. Apart from the very occasional pinpoint of a town far below there was nothing for hundreds of miles. Once out of the mountains the roads became long, straight and incredibly desolate and from my vantage place inside an aircraft at 37,000 feet an emotional wave ran through me and I became to cry.

At earth level just seeing the road in front as much as physically possible gives one no idea of what is really surrounding us, of where we are in the big picture or of the relevance/significance we are having on the landscape of life. Looking down upon the stark vistas below shows how completely vulnerable one can be and also how incredibly protected and safe one is at times on the journey. The high view also offered a perspective on how Soul/Spirit and the Divine realms watch and evaluate how The World far below expresses, learns and operates. Perhaps even to the point of  each Spirit Essence reviewing the impact of  thoughts, actions and emotions on their previous human earthly existence!

Is As Above, So Below, As Within, So Without really correct?

Over the years of working with clients and the world of energy, vibration and sound I have come to an understanding that is slightly different from the norm. As Within, So Without is fairly obvious and translates into “what is happening and being held internally eventually must manifest in some form in the physical world.”

As Above So Below is different!

My theory of Soul/Spirit Essence residing, so to speak, in ‘bubbles’ of varying translucencies’ (based on spirit’s purity and/clarity) in the heavenly process of reviewing the just completed life in preparation for evolution to the next levels of ITs Divine purpose. (You may have to read this a couple of times to get the drift!)

Imagination Exercise:For a moment picture yourself as a spark of energy light floating high in the universal sky, looking down at a video of your life (visual view of the akashic records). Unfolding below, you see scenarios from before birth, choosing of your parents and siblings, all experiences, feelings, joy and sorrows, people, jobs, loves, hates, all life passing by for review. You watch how you handled some situations well and not so well. How you were hurt and how you hurt others. How power, greed, anger, low esteem, pain, drive, compassion service  and so much more played out and what have been the expanded results and consequences you had no idea about.

As the review continues little vignettes of unfinished business pop up. A young frightened mother gives her baby up for adoption; a emotional and physical battle between father and child; a mother filled with depression; the sudden death of a child; raging pain in war between enemies; dozens of scenarios being shown, each one  bringing faces of the past to light.

As heavenly tears rain down from the Soul/Spirit Essence, a mix of sadness, then is energized with Divine Light and Love of recognition and acceptance……as though saying “I understand!  How can I help them heal, understand, forgive and change all from the past into Healing Love Potential for the future! How do I let all those still living know what I have learned UP HERE and how can I help create a new, healthy and compassionate future world!”  (Remember, all the previous dialogue is You as a spark of Energy Light/ Soul, not the human manifested body.)

Therefore, As Above, So Below is really the spark of Energy Light/Soul trying to review, acknowledge, dissolve, neutralize and purify the past life memories, to clean the slate before  the next joyful incarnation into Life in the 5th Dimension.

The Amazing Salvadore Dali

Yesterday as a birthday treat, along with my son, Mathew and grandson, we visited the new Dali Museum in St Petersburg, Florida. For many, many years St Pete had been the home of a large collection of Dali’s art , housed in a smaller location. This new building is quite incredible and officially opened on 1/11/11, quite an auspicious date! Located right on the water at the south end of downtown St Pete, it’s dynamic façade begs further investigation.

Approaching from USF campus the square grey three story concrete walls hide an impressive front entrance. Appearing to be birthed from the grey concrete is an elongate blue flowing egg shape reaching out towards the sea. The blue flowing egg is amazingly constructed from hundred of triangles bolted together.  This description is so uninspiring in comparison to reality.  The architect  was Yann Weymouth of Hellmuth, Obata + Kassabaum, Inc. (HOK). He worked alongside architect I.M. Pei on the renovation of the Louvre in Paris. He has beautifully used sacred geometry very obviously throughout the building. Its design combines a square, rigid, masculine concrete frame; a flowing feminine egg shape joined by the trinity (triangle) creating unity and balance. In the center atrium, surrounded by the gift shop, ticket counters and café stands the flowing spiral staircase with its handrail flowing and reaching high above the third floor’s top step, like a ribbon billowing in the wind. The spiral is based on the Golden Mean ratio as seen in the Fibonacci series of harmonics, the very harmonic found in all living matter. Even in the hustle and noise of so many visitors, as I ascended the stairs to the main gallery, about half way up I felt a distinct energy shift and tingle in my spine as though a recalibration was taking place.

Mathew and I had seen most of the art exhibited during visits to the previous gallery. The new gallery has many more cartoons and drawing series along with several films on Dali and his life being played constantly. He was an eccentric, brilliant artist. His work is not easily understood yet this new museum is attracting such a diverse clientele….visitors yesterday were from all ages, social, economic, cultural and educational backgrounds….I was amazed not only at the diversity but also the true interest and appreciation the art and the architecture was drawing forth.

Our times have truly changed. People from every walk and cultural expression of life are changing, seeking, learning, joining, wondering, questioning and asking about the greater and truer meanings of life and how to improve their experience…..it may appear that there is great negative……yet finally in real time….the reality of higher mass conscious  awareness is everywhere and cannot be ignored…..

This is grassroots 5th Dimension Mysticism is true form!

Since the last entry it is as though I have immersed myself in a bubble of finding my way in this new city and wishing life to unfold as I desire it to look! Which of course it doesn’t….yet it will be right!

I am in Ashland, OR as explained previously and the past week has been on e of cold temps, snow, rain, sun and all in between. Discovering the communities of dance, art, music, walks in nature, students speaking out, meeting new people and the potential of amazing ideas actually evolving has kept me away from world events and what is happening or not beyond my safe confines.World events-Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, New Zealand, plus many others show us where courage and compassion live, what it is to move from fear and blockage to power, courage and shared vision….and all is beyond politics at the end of the day because it is the pure truth within hearts that make this happen.

Earlier in the week this came up from within me….where is my courage, what am I doing to make a difference as a sparkle of potential in this lifetime! I didn’t know what to write about today, just that I had to connect with you. Then opening up wordpress the link below caught my attention and so I followed it……hope you do the same thing.

http://zoetropic.wordpress.com/2011/03/01/protest-egypt-france-venezuela/

This young woman was writing my feelings for today…it is about finding and operating in courage and purpose to make the greater potential possible. She hasn’t experienced living in the midst of massive demonstrations of change that challenge and dismantle the status quo set forth for hundreds/thousands of years. In the past I have stepped into and though different forms of courage yet today I feel empty which is probably exactly where I will find the next expression of courage and purpose to engage in….and I can pretty much guarantee it won’t look like anything I plan!

Next week I will be presenting my “conscious awakening theater” experience in Ashland titled “Awakening Ecstasy In-Formation…New Twists on Money, Power, Sex and Death”…the title always gets attention and offen a little disease, can’t image why! If you happen to be in Ashland come and join us…contact me for more details.

I am going to leave you with this short entry today with many questions unanswered and even more forming. Between now and our next meeting it will be interesting to see what appears besides my new grandson who will make his entry sometime within the next 36 hours…in time for the New Moon in Pisces on Friday!

As always..Blessings to All of our connections through Soul Vision!

You may have all noticed how fast things are happening and showing up around you in the past week or so. This last week has been exceptional!

There is not really even time to think and process the information set forth, it is to trust the inner guidance and act accordingly, even and especially when it doesn’t make sense or is challenging the strength of ALL your safety nets.

Information downloads having been coming to me fast and furiously, with a strong general title of 5th Dimension Mysticism. In my own private writings over the past months I have been learning more of what this means. Recent travels reinforced the fact that we, as humanity, have been slowly in preparation process for this exact change over the past 10 – 15 years. We were taking tiny quiet steps to get use to the feel and now it and we are there/here.

For those who have kept journals during these past years, you may find it interesting to reread very early entries, moving forward in time to see if you can spot an unfolding theme. In this blog and in the days to come I will be sharing more of my stories preparing and awakening myself and those involved (if they chose) to the new dimensional wonders becoming the norm!

In your wanderings around various and multiple websites such as Spirit Library <updates@spiritlibrary.com> ,  and Steve Rother http://www.lightworker.com The New Body Electrics: The Physical Electrical Evolution

(of course there are plenty, plenty of others) there are postings and writings giving so many personal perspectives and messages from sources here and above and below on unfolding earth experiences. In all your discovering, take the information right for you in the moment, use it, grow with it and be open to what’s next.

The New Body Electrics piece is a confirmation of several experiences I have had in being “recalibrated to the new frequencies.” I have written about them in past blog entries so for those who have missed them and are intereste d to read more, click on the blog sidebar Pages: Health and Wellness/Recalibration

Over the n ext days and weeks of blog postings I will share many quite different stories, some from nearly ten years ago. At the time the experiences were profound and taught me a great deal. Now, in hindsight when reviewing and remembering, I am seeing patterns, steps and the early threads woven as foundations of seeing through the veils, now thin as gossamer wings. I will post these new stories under PAGES on the main page. In this posting there will be three pieces on Baby, Memories and Family. They are quite different from each other yet very associated. Remembering these was much of why I needed to clear some of my family issues before my grandson is born.

What is 5th Dimension Mysticism?

It may sound like a new catch phrase and concept yet in research over the past months I have come across writings from Rudolph Steiner in the 20s, Edgar Cayce, numerous Ascended Masters and an interview with Ruth Dahlen: Mysticism and/or Reality….”In March 1968 Sweden’s Radio-TV introduced Mrs. Ruth Dahlen to the Scandinavian public as the “mystic of Vallingby.”  ….continued. (This was a really good piece!)

My brief simple description goes something like this:

The past thousands of years have been in the earth bound 3rd dimension…what you see is what you get; cavemen, lords and surfs, patriarchal control and power, winner through conflict solves all problems and has authority. Through these times, (refer to the steps of a nine layer of a Mayan temple) eras have been shrinking from millions of years to the last level, a 20 day cycle. Interspersed throughout time there have been glimmers of artistic, literary and cultural renaissance, invention and industrialization, fragile peace only to be broken by massive oppression. Humanity lived in the physical body and in physical world! This translates to the 1st (root), 2nd (sacrel) and 3rd (solar plexus) chakras driving life forward.

Then in the 60s, 70s and 80s we searched for something higher, clearer, and purer. The advent of Gurus for the everyday person was real. The more Love and Flower Power pushed, the more Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia became places and examples of hate, abuse, intolerance and death. During these times many were trying to find and walk in the 4th dimension, the place higher than physical earth. Translating to the 5th (throat), 6th (third eye) and 7th (crown) chakras. (I’ll get to the heart in a minute)

Then in 1987, the Harmonic Convergence and a shift happened (research Mayan Calendar, Jose Aguelles). A planetary, energetic, vibration, consciousness shift started the ball not to be stopped!  You and I have been plodding along through this for all these years and most of the time with no clarity or understanding, just a deep driving faith. Many a time it felt like the threat of personal insanity, seeking so disparately for what no one could see or believed was possible. Church, governments, institutions, science and business slammed doors and opened mental wards and prisons for troublemakers who challenged the safe boxed life.  How many times did you say or hear others saying “oh I don’t want to live in the world, I want to be spiritual, enlightened, pure, a pillar of light, a lightworker, etc.” This real world is a hard place to live in!

The 90s, into Year 2000 to now, the surge ahead kept growing. Science and quantum physics found that not seeing something does not mean it’s not there! Medicine found and admitted healing can come through hands, mind and heart; sound can heal and destroy. All over the world, governments, military, science and business were and are finding their hidden agendas, deceptions, lies and greed are being revealed through and by the transparency of searching  higher consciousness by the ever increasing number of individuals seeking exactly that within themselves, proving one person can make a difference.

During the past ten years massive amounts of diverse information from Ascended Masters, gurus, teachers, ancient cultures and spirit realms have been presented for us to process and discern what is truth, truths that seem to keep changing. In the past five years I have seen a coalescing, melding, molding, simplicity and authenticity different from the past which appears to be anchoring us to a new place – the 5th Dimension.

And this anchoring happens at the heart, the human heart and the sacred chamber behind the heart. Here is an image of what I see happening: The earth energy rod of the three lower physical chakras has grown a grounding plug at the top of the solar plexus. The higher three spiritual chakras have done the same from the heavens down, passing through the throat and the thymus to the top of the heart.

Living in the 5th Dimension is about plugging the lower and upper chakras together at the Sacred Heart, thus Igniting and Awakening the Ecstasy our True Heart and Soul have been seeking for eons of time. This is still all new, we are learning and feeling our way through the unfamiliar. It is a real merging of the past, reaching out to the future unknown and acting to create the flowing now and on and on.

For miles and miles I watched the road in front of me unfold towards the rising sun of the east, locked in the vacuum of my car and our private world. Before the journey began I had intentions of recording stories and thoughts in all the alone time I would have. I purchased a recorder for that exact purpose and I do have to say it was used, but no where near as much as I thought.

The other company with me on the journey was several tapes of the “morning sadhana chants” I had participated in earlier in the year in Mt Shasta. Starting on December 21 (a year ago today) a small group of us gathered at the Flying Lotus just before 4AM to share in kundalini yoga and the “short Ek Ong Kar” chant – there was nothing short about it…..a full 2 1/2 hours to completion each day for 21 consecutive days As I have mentioned before, this was an amazing experience!

Well this, along with other chants was my company.  And then there were the hours of silence each day.

Are you afraid of silence! I know people who are. There always has to be noise of some sort….radio, TV, kids, talking…..all distracting from what the silence within is requesting. Jessica reminded me of this one day during felting….I was trying to decide on a design and nothing was coming.

“Sit quietly and do Breathe of Fire for a few minutes”.  I sat by the fire, stilled myself and began the breathe and sure enough, after a few minutes I was still inside, my head was clearer and as I looked at the project in front of me an image revealed itself….the answer came in the stillness of the breathe!

And in stillness and silence comes fear!  The drive from Mt Shasta to Bishop was 8 ½ hours.

The next day leaving Bishop, CA on Hwy 395, the road to Hwy 95 and Las Vegas opened that door, the door of fear! Hwy 168, an 89 mile cut across CA and NV, across a mix of mountains and flat expansive plateaus and no one else. In the early morning there was on one on this road….there was nothing else on this road for miles and miles….I didn’t even see any wildlife.

At the beginning of every day’s drive I would say a blessing and request safety and protection for myself, my little girl (car) and all those around me.  As the miles unfolded on this road a sense of vulnerability enveloped everything and in the silence my fears raised. Immediately the music was turned on and up high. I sang along to avoid myself.

Why was I in fear? The thoughts were “I’m alone, no one knows where I am, and will my car be OK!” And then it hit me. In the incredible expansiveness of this land, of its stark beauty perceivably devoid of life……I was completely INSIGNIFICANT! As a grain of sand on a massive beach….if taken away nothing would change, no one would miss “just one grain of sand, one little speck on the expansive landscape!

Is this what all our fears are about, no matter what they are…..of being insignificant…..is this why silence is so scary…….because in silence we do not contribute anything…..except the abundance of our consciousness!

What is in our consciousness?   Only the totality of our soul’s existence….only everything one has ever done, thought, felt, heard, lived….only all memory of one’s universe….only all memory of the universe itself…..only the memory that each one of humanity has and is a fractal of the ONE UNIVERSE and related to each other…..only that one is SIGNIFICANT in our small fraction of life……and this is only revealed when the light of love is turned on!

For those not familiar with fractals…Unlike fragments which are pieces of the puzzle, each one different, yet when placed correctly form a complete picture. A fractal is the complete picture, multiplied and replicated over and over again.  And to go a little further, it could be said that each person and their soul’s existence are a combination of fragments and fractals…….this is for a greater discussion on another road!

(These photos are the driver’s view, not from beauty of form and they cannot capture the real eye and heart view in the moment.)

At the sight of the first car coming towards me the aloneness dissipated. The 89 miles, a mix of narrow winding roads and straight expansive stretches took 2 ½ hours and the sight of Hwy 95 was a relief.  And Hwy 95 is not a highway one you would want to travel at night…it takes you through more desolate, stark landscape…..a long, straight road without services for miles and miles and miles and miles but during the day there is traffic!

Hwy 95 through Nevada to Las Vegas goes through the infamous Area 51 – UFO Country – and I can believe it!

From Stillness to Overload!

In the last posting I took you to Las Vegas and my visit with Sheila Z.  I only touched on the sights I came across in Red Rock Canyon and “on the strip”.

So often we get lost in the our world not seeing much of what else is around, in other words the world portrayed by commercialism, government, media, fear and control.

For several hours I watched so many of the thousands of people walking the strip or sitting behind the slots in incredibly glamorous hotels and casino, appearing to be “devoid of life and soul”…only shells of their potential, not as God’s creation but of man’s de-evolution.

Hypnotized by the lights, colors, activity, constant noise, play of machines and the internal plea “to hit it big and solve all of life’s problems” kept some of these people coming back. Of course, many oame to Vegas for the entertainment, glamour and excitement without being caught in it, yet far too many were and are not so fortunate. And this goes for the other addictions that take over one’s life!

I remember back when Jerame’s and his friend, Jarrod  spent a summer in Bull Head City, NV, just 90+ miles south of Vegas. Jarrod’s grandmother lived there and so these two young men in search of a different adventure headed west by train. Mathew and I visited him for two weeks. We traveled to Sedona and the Grand Canyon and endured the desert sun. The boys got jobs as hotel valets and spent hours running back and forth in and out of the hot sun and cold air conditioning. I remember Jerame commenting one day that he watched people, all types, rich and poor, well and ill…spend hours, all day and night, just sitting in front of these machines, pulling the handles or pushing the buttons to make “the wheels spin” in the hope the right sequences would appear. One day Jerame shared “Sometimes they wouldn’t even leave the machine to go to the bathroom; they peed in the coin cups!”

At our lowest ebbs in life, when life has or is not going well due to conflict, pain, illness, violence, anything or  anyone else, when one allows to submit to their control…life is lost.

On the Road Again….

From Vegas I headed to Kingman and then to Flagstaff, AZ. This would be only a four hour stretch so I thought I would go a couple of hours beyond Flagstaff before stopping. Years ago it was no trouble for me to drive 10-12 hours at a time, and had done so many, many times. But now 8 hours seemed to be my limit!

About an hour out of Flagstaff, my friend Leela called to say hello and chat. And so timely it was! Leela has traveled this road many times and when I told her of my plans she advised me to stay in Flagstaff as the road from there to Albuquerque had only a scattering of stops and hotels. I took her advice!

Some of you may even have heard of Leela Hutchinson. Leela, a gemologist was the first woman to enter and photograph the amazing Crystal Selenite Caves in Southern New Mexico. The Discovery Channel has aired several programs on this incredible place!

Flagstaff, AZ has a small, quaint and artistic downtown. Lots of restaurants and specialty boutiques. While walking I was drawn into Sacred Rites….Therapy Instruments and Monochords. Tibetan prayer flags fluttered in the breeze and ornaments of Buddha, Kwan Yin and other beautiful pieces adorned the window.

Inside there were drums, flutes, gongs and other instruments of all sizes and shapes. Kelly, the owner greeted me. He was playing a monochord and had several on the counter. The beautiful soothing sound of this little instrument was relaxing, especially after so many days on the road.

A monochord is a 12 string instrument, like a flat dulcimer. It is turned to one note, for instance a C, A, D, etc. Each string is tuned to a different tone of that same note. When played or really, strummed, the gentle resonance of the particular note is experienced.

The monochords on display he had commissioned to be made by a local craftsman. The larger lounge chair style I experienced had come from Germany. One side was designed to sound with a padded mallet and on the other side were strings, not unlike a harp. Kelly sat on the floor to the side. I lay on the chair. The sounds from this monochord gentle reverberated though the wood into the body…very subtly at first and slowly strengthening, combined with his soft toning voice….the sounds of healing wafted in the air.  To learn more you can search Monochords on the Internet.

After a good nights sleep I headed further east on Hwy 40 to Albuquerque and the HWY 25 To Santa Fe. This would take me 7 ½ hours!

The journey of retracing steps continues………
