Smoky Mirror Vision

March 30, 2014

Yesterday, just as the day before, the Kachinas gave me more information concerning the Smoky Mirror, as they call it. What they are referring to—at least in terms of my own experience—is the smoky mist that fills the landscape when I enter into the Etheric mode of vision. Whenever a spirit guide asks me to go into my Etheric vision, my field of vision fills with this smoky mist.

mistThe first time I was conscious of this phenomenon was in December 2010 just before New Year’s Eve. I had just returned to Athens from Christmas in Kansas and, more significantly, my first trip to Crestone, Colorado. Given the life-altering impact of that Crestone experience (which I will describe elsewhere), I was still pretty high in the multidimensional plane when I returned with my family to Athens. I was guided to go immediately to Stroud’s Run, despite the fact that it would soon be turning dark so late in the Winter afternoon.

When I arrived at Stroud’s Run I immediately heard an owl calling and was asked to go to the owl. When I arrived at the spot where the owl had been calling from it was now completely dark. But I knew I had been called there for a reason, so I stayed and began tuning in to the earth spirit energy, despite the fact that I had felt the presence of disturbing spirits on my hike to this lakeside spot. I was years later to realize that this “disturbing” spirit energy was actually the energetic signature of Elf presence, but I could only interpret such energy at this time as ghostly and spooky. In any case, as I tuned in to the earth spirit energy, the air surrounding me and the hill I was facing began to fill with a smoky light. The air was literally glowing in the darkness as I felt myself drawn more deeply into the landscape. I was told that I was facing a Fairy Portal and that this was an initiation of sorts.

The important point here is that this same smoky glow in the atmosphere has now become the clarifying element of my visual experience as I enter into the Etheric mode of seeing. This is true whether it is a bright sunny day or the middle of the dark night. Now the Kachinas told me that this glowing mist is what the ancient Mesoamericans referred to as the Smoky Mirror. I took this information in during the first mention of it two days ago but did not in any way understand what this might mean. How, after all, could smoke-filled air be compared to a mirror? If this experience is in some way a mirror, where is my own reflection? Not knowing the answer, I nevertheless continued in this misty atmosphere for the next hour or so as I wandered from one sacred spot to another in our forest, engaging with the attendant spirits of each location as I saw them materialize in the mist.

I was led through exactly the same itinerary yesterday, beginning with the Third Portal (whose attendant spirits are the Kachinas themselves) to the Mother Tree in the Elf Circle to the Sacred Mound and finally on to the Sacred Well. The attendant spirits of the Sacred Well are, not surprisingly, Water Fairies, and these Fairies, accompanied by the Kachinas, led me each day through a deep and elaborate meditation on my developing understanding of and work with the water energy systems of the planet.

smokyDuring yesterday’s water system meditation-grounding, the Kachinas again told me that I was enveloped in the Smoky Mirror. Confused as ever, I asked them then how this experience could be called a mirror when what I saw was a thick luminescence but nothing resembling my own reflection in that scene before me. The Kachinas said, “What you see is the world as reflected in a dimension that is the effect of your own reflecting power.” This did not help me much in getting their point, so they continued by explaining, “What you see is from the perspective of your own eyes. Your eyes themselves are the plane of the mirror. You are seeing from the other side of the mirror. This, in other words, is the world seen from the other side of that reflective plane. You yourself are the reflective surface of the mirror.”

Suddenly everything made sense. My own eyes are the reflective glass of the mirror, and the shift that occurs in my visual field is the result of this shift into a reflective mode of vision. As I began to recognize the import of their words (and the energy accompanying the words themselves), I was reminded of the meditative slogan or mantra they had given me the day before: “Let the Earth’s Inner Sun shine through your heart.”

And now I see that this is, at least in part, the source of the illumination that fills the experiential space before me when I enter into the Etheric mode of seeing. The light of that Inner Sun shines out from my heart, and its reflecting rays illuminate the world before me. These rays fill the space before me with light and thus appear as the smoky mist that alters the visual medium in such a way that the spiritual dimension of the world before our eyes becomes perceptible. In this way I—and every other being entering into this sacred energetic exchange—function as the Blue Star Kachina, the reflective plane that allows for the shining of the Earth’s Inner Sun, the Blue Star, to shine in the world as a light of revelation. In this process, under the tutelage of the Kachinas, we ignite our own Kachina capacity.

blue sunWhat this suggests, by extension, is that the prophecy of the coming Blue Star Kachina, like that of the Second Coming of Christ, does not refer to the coming of a single individual identified as the Blue Star Kachina or the returned Christ. What it refers to instead is the fact that once we as a collective agency enter into our own Kachina or Christ being, we then are the Blue Star Kachina Christ that shines as the manifestation of this elevation of our collective spirit.

Monitor Answers My Question on the Kachina Spirits and the People from Below

GABRIEL:       Hi, Monitor. This is Gabriel Hartley. I’m calling for Anna Oksanen and myself. I actually was moved to change my question. So I have a question that is not written down. I composed a short list of items to include. Our question now concerns our relationship with entities who have identified themselves to us as “Kachina Spirits.” This began on a conscious level for us when Anna had a vision of a Kachina while we were together in our first visit at Findhorn in Scotland. But this past summer, we had a very profound engagement with Kachina Spirits while we were meditating in Chaco Canyon in New Mexico. That vision lingered for many days, culminating in a vision I had in the Santuario at Chimayó of a Kachina Christ.

Since returning to Ohio, we have been in touch with these entities, through what we know as the third portal on the property and have entered into quite a bit of communication with them. As I was driving through Missouri a few months ago, I was alerted to the fact that they were connecting us to inhabitants of a subterranean dimension that’s in the process of an emergence, an emergence of what’s been identified to us as the “People from Below.” And so on the winter solstice, we were led to perform a ceremony to aid in this emergence process.

We’re very excited by this and what we’re learning. At the same time, we want to be appropriately respectful for the indigenous peoples who engage with entities called Kachinas. We’re also wondering if there is any connection between these experiences and the mysterious language that I often find myself speaking in ecstatic states? Could you please contact on our relationship with these Kachina Spirits?
