Monitor Speaks on My Connections with Seth and Anzaldúa

[The following is a transcript of a telephone communication that took place on August 1, 2016 between Gabriel Hartley and Monitor, the multidimensional composite being channeled by Harvey Grady in Sedona, Arizona. The session was organized by the Learning for Life Center in Topeka, Kansas.]

Seth Speaks Cover

GABRIEL:      Monitor, this is Gabriel.  In this particular round, I find myself with many different competing questions and having a hard time prioritizing.  So if you happen to think there’s one I’m not asking, please jump in and insert that.  I’ll begin with my first question that concerns Seth.  For the past two months or so, I’ve found myself more and more deeply engaged with the energy personality known as Seth, initially channeled by Jane Roberts.  For some time now, I have been mulling over the suggestion that I come to a deeper understanding of Seth and his message in relation to Gloria Anzaldúa and my book on her.

I tried to follow-up on this connection in my research at the archives in Austin, Texas, reading through Anzaldua’s marginal comments in her copies of a few Seth books and gained some important information drawn from her marginal comments.  My High Self, Samuel, then suggested that I read the Seth books more carefully so that I would have a firmer foundation for comparing my own understanding and vibration within these Seth studies to that of Anzaldua, to the degree that I can intuit the full arrange of her responses.  In doing so, I found myself drawn more deeply into a personal working relationship with Seth.

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by Seth directly as I was reading on my porch.  He led me through a very powerful and energetically complex conversation in meditation.  I then experienced Seth giving me a body of information, often at 3:00 AM, that would “surprisingly” turn out to be the exact same material I would read the next morning in whichever book I picked up of his.  Seth suggested that I ask you to expand on this newly conscious relationship I have developed with him, what it’s meaning is in my overall Spirit project, and what I might expect as I pursue even deeper channels with him.  Any other comments related to Anzaldúa and him would be welcome.  Thank you.

MONITOR:    We find that your earnest inquiry has drawn you into contact with the entity presenting the name “Seth.”  That entity is one of many teaching sources involved with the mental expansion of humanity.

The opportunity provided by expanded mental body capabilities draws such Teachers to those who seek them with true openness.  Such teachers evaluate students.  They may do so in a glance, evaluating the chakra system, the growth dynamics within the personality’s aspects, and the condition of the Outer Self.  We find that you will find this relationship with Seth quite rewarding.  And in the process, you will find some of your viewpoints about yourself and reality shifting as they need to shift.

We have long been colleagues with the entity known as Seth and note that Seth’s unique contribution carries far beyond what was channeled through Jane Roberts.  That partnership continues with Jane and her husband, Rob, on the other side.  They have been trained as teaching sources also.

In your relationship with the person you are studying and writing about, you need to be open and allow your mental body to process what Seth transmits directly.  You will also find that the person you are writing about will add to those contributions as you write.  She will be there by your shoulder, guiding some of your statements to aid you in your commitment to be accurate about her viewpoints.

You may ask for her to assist you at any point.  The connection you will feel with her will be primarily as you write.  Yet if you wish to enjoy a sense of communion with her, you may also focus on that.  Such practice helps you attune to her and thereby give you assurance that you are interpreting her thoughts and contributions accurately.

THE MANATAKA LESSONS ON THE CAUSAL PLANE

By Gabriel Hartley

October 5-7, 2015

Last Tuesday night (September 30, given that it was after midnight) and again this Tuesday night (October 7) I was awoken at about 3 a.m. and spent a little time tossing and turning in bed before I decided to get up and converse with the spirits who woke me up. I went into the yoga room, sat on my meditation cushions, and did my tuning-in Pranayama, what I call the Kyy Breath. Almost instantaneously I saw and felt the presence of some new beings whom I had never consciously met before. So after grounding myself in the Golden Light of Grace and the Highest Good of All Beings, I joined them in conversation.

FORGING UNITY AMONG THE BODIES AND PLANES OF EXISTENCE

As usual in these kinds of spirit encounters, I felt the electrical charge of the merging of our Mental Bodies. Yet with these beings that charge was many times more powerful than my normal experience. And in many ways this experience itself was the content as well as the effect of their message to me.

They began by having me focus on the intensity of this super-charged connection, relaxing as it surged throughout every fiber of my body—or, more appropriately, bodies. For my physical body was not the source of these feelings but simply the last layer of resonance. What I quickly learned was that in this moment my Physical, Etheric, Astral, Mental, and Causal Bodies were simultaneously engaged in this charged merger of their bodies with mine. And this experience of my Causal Body, which to my memory was the first time ever for me on a conscious level in this lifetime, became the focus of the entire message.

image002Before going into more detail about these body mergers and charges, however, I thought it important to find out who they were and what their intentions were. When I asked, they immediately told me that they were known as the Manataka and—as many other a being has done—told me that I could look them up later on Google if I wished to, but I might not find much there.

I should mention here that I was receiving a lot of this information through various means other than through conscious verbal telepathic communication (although there was plenty of that, too). Much of what I “heard” or “saw” was presented to me in energetic bundles. I can only compare these bundles to warm, almost-molten balls of wax that carried immense amounts of information being released as the wax balls melted into my energy body and then spread throughout my other bodies. I realized then that the electric sensations I had felt during our Mental Body mergers were themselves transfers of dense charges of information. In other words, while I could actually “hear” them in their telepathic linguistic gestures, at least ten times as much information was simultaneously “melting” into my system.

I then came to understand through means that I cannot describe that they were beings who in part are associated with the North American continent’s river systems. I could see them hovering like a spirit fog just feet above the Missouri River as it winds its way through the state of Missouri on its way to the Mississippi River. I asked them if they were responsible for the flow of traffic in and over these river systems and they said yes, but not in the exclusive way that that might sound. In other words, they are not the only ones responsible for such traffic and at the same time they are responsible for far more than simply river traffic. In fact, they oversee the coordination of the efforts of other classes of beings who themselves oversee the atmosphere (such as the Matakin), the subterranean realms (such as the Kachinas), and the surface of the planet itself. In some way that I don’t yet understand, their work as conductors of all of these strands of energy and information takes place primarily through the energetic streams of the rivers, and especially through the river vortex systems located at all conjunctions of other rivers and streams.

After telling me about their relationship to the energetic expressions of the planet’s geographical systems (such as rivers, underground channels, atmospheric passages, and much more), the Manataka then turned my attention to my own bodies. They explained that there is an important parallel structure that marks both the planetary and the individual system of bodies. In other words, the question of proper alignment of Mental to Astral to Etheric to Physical Bodies involves the relationship between individual beings and the planetary being at large. If humans are out of alignment, to a certain extent so is the planet.

RISING INTO THE CAUSAL PLANE

After letting this parallel between human and planetary bodies sink into my consciousness, they began demonstrating this individual-planetary alignment by having me focus my attention simultaneously on the physical plane of the planet and the physical plane of my own body. I could feel in my own body the physical flows that they were engaging the planet; I could feel in my own energy body the etheric flows that they were engaging the planet; I could feel in my own astral body the astral flows that they were engaging the planet; and I could feel in my own mental body the mental flows that they were engaging the planet. And, most importantly, my conscious bodily experience of these individual/planetary alignments was in itself the synchronization of my own causal body and the causal body of the planet. This conscious experiential harmony of individual and planetary bodies is itself the causal body. In other words, the causal body involves the recognition from a higher plane of conscious experience the total integration of the part-to-whole expression of the planet as experienced, for example, through us (as through any being who arrives at such a higher level of consciousness).

At this point I realized that before now I had had no real idea what the term “causal” might refer to. I simply understood it as a higher, more-rarefied level of energetic and conscious existence—which it is—but I had no idea how this higher level might come into being as an object of conscious understanding through this totalizing kind of energetic alignment. Now I knew the reality of this concept through my own deepest experience, which is what real knowledge is anyway. Abstract concepts are important way stations, but they do not rise one up onto a true plane of knowledge until they become concrete experiential concepts. In this way, G.W.F. Hegel was right on target in his Phenomenology of Spirit in his description of the dialectical process mocing from the Abstract to the Concrete.

The Manataka then drew my attention to the fact that this unifying multi-body energetic experience they had led me through was in fact a very important aligning exercise for humans to practice on a daily basis. With this totalizing causal encompassing relationship of bodies in mind, any physical activity could function as the vehicle for allowing this causal alignment to ground itself in all of our bodies. Qi gong, yoga, t’ai chi, hiking, swimming, and so on, when engaged from such a unifying perspective, each become a “proper” physical vehicle for manifesting the causal body in our conscious experience. And one very important end result is that through such multi-body exercises, we clear all of our various bodies of harmful energetic blockages. This is what disease is after all—an energetic block; and healing is the process of freeing this blocked energy back into its proper flow and circulation. The conclusion the Manataka left me with last week was that it is crucial that we keep all of our bodily, planetary, and cosmic circulatory, emanatory, and receptive channels cleared by engaging them on a daily basis.

As for the physical body, their suggestion was that we be sure to maintain a practice that includes bodily, respiratory, and mental exercises. In this way, we prevent systemic blockages of many different kinds and maintain the energetic equilibrium we were designed to engage.

THE MAHADEVAS AND THE YOGIC PLANE

Last night, as the Manataka reiterated last week’s lesson for me, I learned that these beings are a class of Mahadevas, that is, a higher grade of devas, whose primary role is that of coordinator or conductor of the activities of all other beings in relation to the Causal Body of the planetary being. They suggested that they operate on the Buddhic Plane, but that for the moment I should continue to focus on the Causal Plane at this point in my conscious development and alignment.

The Manataka, I learned, are in league with the particular class of Elves who function as the overseers of planetary portals and with whom I have been working since my first night in our house three summers ago. In fact, last night’s “communicative event” began with the Elves making initial contact with me, confirming and validating the information I had received last week so that I could relax a bit more and take in the information I was about to receive on this night without the paranoiac blockages that rightly arise when I am not sure of the nature and intentions of the beings I am interacting with. Then the elves cleared the Elfin Portal of any encumbrances or distorting beings so that I could maintain a clear channel to the Manataka.

One further crucial element of the lesson for last night was my recognition that it can be helpful to see the Causal Plane as equivalent to what could be called the Yogic Plane. In this sense, the causal plane stages the conscious unity of the host of bodies I have been referring to here. And this higher mode of union is, after all, what the term yoga refers to. As such, the causal body itself serves as a portal bridging the lower and higher realms of being. The causal body is the hinge-point, the gateway through which we can pass as the causal body wraps all elements of the lower bodies into one yogic field staging our lift-off into the higher spheres of consciousness.

AFTERWORD

Following their advice, I did look the Manataka up on Google. I have found references to work done by others related to Manataka as a place name: the Place of Peace, the Sacred Mountain, and Valley of the Vapors. [See, for example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1lKmmepoFA.] I have not had the chance as yet to work through this material and meditate on what if any direct connections I might find between these beings who identify themselves as the Manataka to me and this Sacred Mountain revealed to Lee Standing Bear Moore. I leave that for future exploration.

I have found, however, that everything the Manataka have told me is verified in many places on the internet. Again, I do not have the time as yet to lay these connections out other than to say that these finds through Google are very satisfying.

I welcome any comments and anecdotes that might clarify, strengthen, and expand upon the information I have received thus far. Thank you.

And thanks to the Manataka.

 

Discipline—Teachings from Callador, Elfin Representative

May 20, 2015

[The following words from Callador were channeled by Gabriel Hartley following a middle-of-the-night instruction.]

chakra fireThere are times when you feel as though all of the progress you have made over the years has suddenly gone and disappeared. These can be times of despair, when you feel the backslide, as they say, “from Grace to Perdition.” But despair not. The light of the Divine ever shines within you and is available at a moment’s notice.

What many beings forget from time to time is that all beings go through cycles of ebb and flow, of high and low, of light and dark, of flame and spark. But the tiniest spark is simply a glimmer of the eternal flame that warms and enlightens your being.

The key at such moments of despair is to remember your discipline. Now the word discipline tends to conjure up images of austerity and self-flagellation. But discipline is simply a return to source. Discipline is the reassurance that once you regain your focus, your previous progress rises up in an instant and glows before the world.

As a concrete and practical example of what discipline means for you, you have your own particular set of practices that help to orient you and get you in the spirit, so to speak. For instance, you might have a warm-up practice of breathing exercises (pranayamas) that help to open up your chakra system and your visionary capabilities and allow you to enter into your usual meditative and visionary state. In your case in particular, Gabriel, you have been given the Kyy Breath pranayama practice, and this has proven to work wonders for you and Anna as you enter into your usual visionary states.

On a practical level, then, what I mean by discipline is returning to the practices that help you return to source. You need no painful or tedious Spartan regime unless such a regime suits your needs and your temperament. You simply need to do what always works well. Even at your lowest moments, the simple act of breathing in or chanting or visualizing is all that is necessary to clear the blocks and to allow you to open up once more.

More often than not such blocks are simply intellectual concepts and fears. “Oh Lord, I am not worthy!” These despairing concepts emanate from those aspects of yourself that are most unstable or uncomfortable with changes in your psychic status quo. But the simplest way to take control over your psychic status quo is to return to your source, return to your rejuvenating practice, return to your discipline.

A guide to a deeper understanding of the notion of discipline comes from meditating on the word’s etymology. What are the roots and source concepts that inhere in the term? While the medieval Christian uses of the term involved connotations of chastisement, suffering, and punishment, you will see that the Latin sense of the term referred to instruction, learning, and knowledge.

The root of the word is disciple, and this sense is much closer to what I have in mind. The Latin discipulus means “pupil, student, follower,” from discere, to learn. And notice the words’ resonances with the term discern. Through this resonance discipline comes from disciple, the student capable of discernment, the capacity of being able to distinguish the rays of connection and separation in a moment of perception.

etymologySo discipline is simply the act of entering into the bodily, intellectual, and spiritual mood necessary for the igniting of chakra fires capable of illuminating the objects of our visionary experiences. And once one enters into such a state, all despair and doubts vanish.

My Christmas Gift from Turehu

Christmas 2014

orbGiven the solemnity and joy for many people on this particular holiday—at least for those who actually celebrate it as a Holy Day—I thought that it might be good for me to do some yoga, meditation, and ceremony of a sort. It is a day of renewal and in many ways represents the true New Year. So as my wife and son, Anna and Kivi, continued sleeping, I got up determined to do some “traditional” shamanic journeying on this Christmas Day.

[Please note that what follows is a lesson for me regarding following my own path to truth. Neither I nor any of my spirit guides have any intention of criticizing other shamanic paths. The point, rather, is to embrace all paths that lead to truth while being true to one’s own truths. May all beings prosper as they follow their appropriate paths. By the way, I love drumming but have just never been called to engage in it in my own practice.]

My intention on this day was to follow through with the advice that the Grandfather Tree in the forest on our ridge had given me about a week ago. On that day, as I was walking ceremoniously (and what for me could be called “shamanically”) through the forest, I was drawn to the Grandfather Tree along with some other spots I am often called to, although not always all together on the same particular day.

As I leaned into the tree with my forehead pressed against it, the Grandfather began addressing me. He began with his usual greetings and friendly words and vibrations—I rarely hear much more from him, although I often feel that I have gained some energetic wisdom during each of our visits. But suddenly and unexpectedly he said, “You need to undergo a shamanic journey.” Surprised, I asked him to say more.

“You need to undergo a shamanic journey. A journey involving soul retrieval. Long ago in a distant lifetime you lost a key element of your soul, and now you need to get it back. During this journey you will meet with a being who will offer you an object embodying your lost soul part. You must accept this object, swallow it whole, and then you will be restored after many lifetimes of deprivation and suffering. This particular Karmic trail is coming to an end.”

I was surprised to receive this advice, or, perhaps, more wary than anything else. For I had never done a journey for a soul retrieval before. And beyond that, I have always had more confidence in my shamanic work for others than for myself. I am often too self-conscious to see things as clearly as I think I should when it comes to helping myself, and so I often end up feeling a bit frustrated after doing some personal spiritual task.

drumA few days ago I tried to do such a soul-retrieval journey for myself, but with only partial success. I put on some shamanic drumming music and, after my ritual yoga and pranayama workout, lay down on my yoga mat and closed my eyes. Initially things felt great. I eased into the drumming rhythm, the heartbeat of the worlds, and quickly drifted into a dark and cloudy sleepy kind of space. I could tell that what was being prepared for me was a kind of projector screen, a backdrop for the visions that might come to me in this alternate dimension.

Soon I saw a faint glow in the center of my visual field. The glow grew a little in size but not much in intensity. At a certain point I noticed that within this growing glowing circle there was a winged being—an angel. I tried to make direct contact with this angelic being, but after a few seconds it began shifting shape. It then slowly dawned on me that the angel had changed form into the crocodile-headed humanoid god of Egypt known as Sobek.

sobekI have seen several classical Egyptian figures in my visionary journeys in the past few years, but never Sobek. In this visionary state I established an energetic communication stream with him, but I never heard him speak any clearly identifiable words. Eventually I simply drifted off into a dreamy, floating sleep, feeling wrapped in a warm and dark womblike atmosphere that seemed like an opiate haze. After twenty minutes of this comfortable, indefinite slumber, I awoke and realized that I had gone on a dream journey, but one that evidently will have to wait before I achieve any kind of enlightenment and meaning from it beyond the beautiful sense of comfort. The key point was that no being, not even this Sobek, had offered me anything that I recognized as an object that I should swallow in order to retrieve my lost soul energy ball. So I knew then that I would have to try again to journey into the proper environmental conditions for a successful soul retrieval.

Days went by without a good opportunity for such a journey when Christmas Day arrived. I woke up early and decided that my first gift to myself would be to attempt another retrieval journey and hope for better results at Christmas.

As in my earlier attempt on the day when I encountered Sobek, I began with my usual opening up preliminary exercises—yoga and pranayams—and then lay down on the carpet in our yoga room. Again I began to slip into a dreamy fantastic space, comforting and opiate in tenor. I called on my main spirit guide, Turehu—in her words, a “fairy of the highest order”—and asked her to accompany me on this journey, hoping that in her presence I might better stay awake and draw this figure to me who would offer me my lost soul ball. She began helping by speaking to me about the benefits and drawbacks of my previous attempt at soul retrieval. And then fairly quickly she stopped and suggested that this particular method of lying down with closed eyes might not be my proper journeying mode.

“What do you normally do when you journey, Gabriel?” she asked.

I told her that I usually sit in a yoga position on my meditation pillow and drift off into the Otherworld in that posture.

“Then why,” she asked, “are you lying down on the floor with your eyes closed when this is not your usual method?”

I had to admit that I was doing so because I had recently been challenged concerning my personal shamanic procedures, the suggestion being that I should follow more “conventionally-accepted” methods. This was, in fact, why during my earlier attempt at soul retrieval I had taken the corpse-pose and the drumming background as my approach.

Acknowledging that there is immense power in shamanic drumming, Turehu nevertheless then suggested that I take my usual position, given my success with that procedure, and ignore the criticisms, however well-meaning. So I got up and sat on my meditation cushion and immediately entered the Otherworld.

I could now see Turehu there, standing to my left—an indefinite yet beautifully warm human-shaped glow. Like the other fairies I have seen, Turehu is not at all some small flower-like being as we see in Disney movies but actually a humanoid form that is larger than the typical human. The typical fairy, as they have presented themselves to me, is seven to eight feet tall. And so this was how I saw Turehu on Christmas morning.

With Turehu at my side, I then peered into the mist of the Otherworld—the “Mists of Avalon,” as I now call it—that has come to characterize my current state of visionary encounter. I waited, hoping for the being that the Grandfather Tree had predicted to appear and hand me my soul orb and ask me to swallow it in order to repair my fragmented state of being. I again saw angels coming and going in the glowing center of the visual field, but none came forward to offer me anything.

At a certain moment a realization shot through me like a bolt of lightning. “Wait a minute—I have been waiting for some new, strange being to greet me. But what if the being I have been waiting for is Turehu herself?” As soon as I became conscious of this question, I also knew in my greatest depths that this was the truth. Here I had been waiting for some new being to approach and introduce itself when all along my beloved spirit guide Turehu was there by my side with a brightly glowing orb in her left hand.

orb2“It has been you all along!” I shouted, and Turehu smiled. She reached her left hand out to me, offering me the glowing orb.

retrievalI slowly and ceremoniously accepted it, lifting it from her hand and carrying it to my mouth. As soon as I placed the orb into my mouth—it appeared to be about the size of a billiard ball but with no noticeable densely material mass—I felt that lightning shooting once more throughout my being. This is a frequent experience when I encounter power beings and enter into an energetic continuum with them. But this was probably the most beautiful intense electrocution I had ever experienced. It shot throughout my whole physical body and soon I felt it shooting throughout my etheric, astral, and mental bodies and well. After a good thirty or forty seconds of this spirit energy charging through my being, I saw the orb slowly pass down through my esophagus, my stomach, and then take its place in the hollow pit in my Third Chakra, just below my sternum. It fit itself perfectly into this chamber and then its glow intensified and flowed throughout the various levels of my body, from physical to causal.

Turehu, now standing directly in front of me, then placed her hands on my shoulders and looked me square in the eyes.

“You are whole now, Gabriel. You are once more reunited with your soul essence. Over time you will come to learn in detail how you initially lost it and why it has taken this many lifetimes for it to be returned to you. But the main point for you to recognize is that you are now whole. You are complete. And nobody else’s definition of you matters unless it fits with the truth of yourself that you know in your very being. You now know what is true for you, what is your very own truth.

“This is why the traditional journeying posture would not work for you. That posture and the definitions that go along with it are appropriate for some shamans. But your own version of shamanism is growing out of your very being. That is the only appropriate method and definition for you—the one that comes from your connection to your Higher Self. This, in part, is what it means to be whole, to be complete.”

In tears I thanked her. I slowly opened my eyes and embraced a whole new Christmas Day and a whole new me.

Kachina Message to Humanity #2

Free Yourself By Embracing Your Shadow

September 1, 2014

People, welcome. We are the Kachinas.

It is good that you have with consciousness and faith and integrity moved forward with the project of Planetary development. Do not blame yourself over matters such as “lost” or “wasted” time, for that is not of importance here. What is important is the path that you take, the path you follow, and the clarity that you attain in this project.

green spiralYou are letting go of karmic encumbrances that have been keeping you stalled. But do not imagine that such stalling is simply a waste of time. This stalling has been in many ways beneficial in the sense that it has allowed and indeed forced you to become aware of these karmic blockages, these karmic possibilities, and to use them as the karmic possibilities that they are to spur you to further growth, to spur you to further development along your path. And you have had to do this in order to achieve clarity and the vibratory status that will make you best capable of carrying out this purpose.

When you achieve that vibratory state, which all of these various forces who have contacted you have emphasized and have worked with you on, when you achieve the vibratory state necessary for making clear, consistent, and conscientious contact with other beings, you are capable of aligning yourself with their vibratory rate because yours is clearer, yours is purer and more consistent with your Higher Self, your Higher Being, your Higher Path.

So rest assured that you are and have been on the right path; that you have been clearing the obstacles that have kept you from being able to do the work that you are able to do at this moment. You have the qualities, of course, to make this possible in the abstract, in utero, so to speak, that you are ready to give birth to your new self who is ready to let go of the karmic encumbrances that have held you back so long. Happy Birthday, then, in that sense, Humanity!

And let’s continue.

Message to Humanity #2

As we suggested in the previous Message to Humanity [#1], one of the necessities for stepping out on this path and for carrying out the goals and the purposes for the Planetary achievement is the cleansing and the clearing of karmic factors that inhibit your utmost possibility—the vibratory state and condition necessary for optimal connection to other beings, when the Human Being remains bound up in vibratory frequencies that are frustrated by karmic inheritances—fears, anger, ego, and the like.

autumn_vibrationAt those times the Human Being is far less capable of achieving the clarity of vibration necessary for the communications that he or she is capable of. So it is our suggestion, as we suggested in the previous message, that you find those qualities within yourself that resonate with the ground of your being, that resonate with what makes you feel optimally vibrant and joyful and clear and functional. For as you allow those elements, those activities, those thought processes to work within your total system and your total being, your total personality, you are then clearing the way for the development of the vibratory personality that can best do the work that you are now seeking to do.

You have come to this planet for exactly this purpose. Those of you hearing or reading these words at this moment have come to this planet for this reason. And as is common with the Human Being, you have come with a lot of work to do on yourself in order to make you better capable of carrying out this project.

Some of you will turn to meditational practices of various kinds that will allow you to train your consciousness, your field of attention, your clarity of thought and in the process will stimulate the development and clarification of your chakra system and the various energetic points—the nadis, and other etheric, astral, and mental energy points connected to your chakra system, and through this engagement in energizing, you bring your various bodies into a more productive and harmonious alignment with one another so that ultimately the physical body, the etheric body, the astral body, the mental body, and ultimately the causal body work in concert, in unity of purpose, and in unity of vibration.

All in existence registers a particular vibratory pattern, a particular sounding tone, a particular graphic quality that identifies and individualizes it and makes it distinct from all other patterns of energy. Each personality of each human being works in the same way and gives off particular tonal resonance that other entities recognize and are either drawn to or repelled by.

It is not your goal to seek the unification of all entities at this point in the development of the cosmos, but the harmonious arrangement of intention and activity with those entities who are best qualified to work with you as you go forward in this project of helping the Planetary Being attain its highest state. So each individual has particular work to do, individual work to do to make a space for them as the unique register of forces that they are.

As individuals move forward on this path, as they achieve the clarity they are seeking, as they begin to recognize the qualities of other human beings, of other entities of all sorts, and realize with whom they may harmonize and those with whom they might not, they are better able to ground themselves in the qualities of their very being that make them most capable of benefitting the planetary design.

Frequently you will find yourself frustrated on the path. You will find that a particular activity that seemed so simple to you on the previous day is now so difficult. This is because each day brings a new arrangement of forces of energies, of planetary arrangements and alignments, of configurations of beings and entities who come, who go, who make choices, change their minds, and as you experience this just as you do with other human beings, as you experience this with the host of entities you are contacting and are contacted by, you will realize that on some days things seem to go quite well while on others they appear to go less well.

What we ask of you at this point is that you neither judge yourselves nor judge others on the days that things seem to go less well, but to recognize that those are days that best call you on your own resources to develop an understanding of how it is that you respond to various impulses, trajectories, triggers, and so on. And as you become more familiar in recognizing the vibratory signatures of those particular combinations of powers and how they impact your energy body, your mental structure, your own vibration, you can better develop strategies for more appropriately dealing with those complexes as they arise. You can develop mnemonic devices of a sort, of an energetic and bodily sort wherein, for instance, you say, “Oh, that particular uncomfortable feeling in the solar plexus—I remember that that occurs when I am confronted with a particular past-life set of energies and dispositions that are no longer serving yet which still hold sway in my total soul complex and have an impact on my personality.”

These fear complexes, these resistances, these moments of doubt, of anguish, of shame, of pain are moments of Shadow Work—moments where you have the opportunity to recognize what it is that you carry with you in the shadows of your being that still have an impact on how you resonate as an individual being. And when you become conscious of these, you can address them. You can embrace them as what has brought you to the place where you are at now and as energies that are bound in certain patterns that can be recognized, appreciated, and released. This is the goal of Shadow Work: to recognize, appreciate, and release the energies that keep you bound to ancient primal patterns that no longer serve your best interests as you go forward now.

knotsFor each of these knots, so to speak, of energy contains a vast store of energetic resources that you can turn to benefit your being, to benefit your plan, to benefit your purpose and your path—so embrace the fears, recognize their sources, acknowledge that there is no longer reason to fear, and let those energies be directed towards a more conscious and directed purpose. In the end you will find that you have a vocabulary, so to speak, of physical experiences, of energetic knots in your body that are calling on you to recognize certain energetic complexes and resistances, and you can develop a variety of ways of coping with, of opening up and embracing and releasing these energies so that you can learn who you are in your deepest self and allow all of those aspects of yourself to work themselves out to their fullest.

The fears are there for a reason. There are things to fear! And fear is a survival mechanism. But it is the karmic fears that keep you bound to habitual patterns that no longer help you, no longer serve to protect you, that can be turned around to a more productive pattern of consciousness and direction.

We will have much more to say about this Shadow Work, but in closing let us reiterate that if you ground yourselves in the very nature of your being, those resonances that are natural to you and that lead you to joy and excitation, happiness, and fulfillment, they will give you the energy to deal with those knots of resistances that are bound in your body and help you to balance them out. This is not a message of hedonism and simple gratification of the physical body. This is a recipe for expansion. This is a recipe for fulfillment. This is a recognition of the self-liberating potential of the human body to speak to your consciousness and to allow you to recognize how these various knots, karmic variations, keep you frozen in place.

It is your time to be free. It is your time to grow. It is your time to let that inner vibration reach its natural song and allow you to harmonize with the Song of Creation.

Go forward in peace. Go forward in happiness. Go forward in the release of energy that you make possible for yourselves in accepting who it is you really are.

The Matakin Wind Spirits of Illinois

May 26, 2014

[Transcript of Channeled Message]

This is the voice of the Sky Spirits here in Illinois, near Pocahontas on I-70. The sky spirits here are the Matakin, which reminds me of the Matachines of New Mexico, but that’s something different. So the spirits of the sky, these swirling vortex spirits, these whirlpools of consciousness that sweep through the atmosphere here, [1:00] are so powerful, so amazing! I’m feeling their presence, and they’re actually speaking to me.

[Long pause.]

They are speaking, but without words, so it’s a more difficult channel. It’s an energetic channel. They are swirling, swirling through my energy body as I drive through here. My intention was to channel the energies as they are transformed into words, which is what normally happens. Yet [2:00] this is a much more energetic swirl I feel through my limbs, through my chest, and my head—these energetic whirlpools—but it’s such a conscious, living energy. I’m being embraced and penetrated by these massive swirling, beautiful beings. And again they are drawing my attention to the Heart Chakra and the role that the Heart Chakra plays in the human energy system as a kind of conduit, a portal, a vortex of its own with the various energies that the human has at its disposal are woven together and disseminated. [3:00]

This is one area where James Cameron had it right in Avatar with the tsaheylu notion, the bonding. This is a kind of bonding. The difference is that he had to fall back necessarily, in terms of the audience and the filmic medium, on some kind of visual connection, and so the various “ponytails” of the humanoids connect with the fiber, the sort of fiber optics, of all the other entities on the planet—the Tree of Souls, the various animals that they [4:00] ride, and so on—whereas it’s the Heart Chakra itself on an energetic fusion level, an energetic bonding that opens up in this way. And I can feel—phew! oh!—I can feel the Matakin as they sweep through my energy body. It’s a sweeping; it’s a rushing; it’s like being in the shower, but it’s penetrating my chest, through my arms. It’s a big swirling swoop, and it’s . . . well, I’m ecstatic! It’s so amazing! So amazing, this [5:00] kind of union, this kind of communion with the beings.

And I guess what I’m supposed to record at the moment is this particular experience, because one of the things I think I get stuck in—and this might be just a human peculiarity—is that when I communicate, when I channel, I get stuck in a verbal mode and expect that the beings will be speaking through me, giving me verbal information, intellectual information, and one of the things that we need to be much more conscious of is our energetic communication. How do we open up and respond and project [6:00] outward from ourselves, radiate this beautiful human energy that pours from our being, from our Heart Chakra in this way?—just an open source of energy and, this portal, this vortex portal at the center of our being with all this energy, this infinite scope of energy that I can see, I can see going through my heart into this infinite vortex and feel that energy spinning out from me, the energy of these Matakin as they swirl through my being.

And no wonder the Plains Indians, at least down here—the Prairie Indians might be more appropriate [7:00] for here in Illinois—they were ecstatic. I am being told that this was not the Illini—[in excited response to the spirit energy] phew!—and I am not sure that it was the peoples involved with Cahokia either. It was some other people that was out here in this glacial plain, and I can feel their presence, too, I can feel that ancestral presence in the land as they—it’s sort of a universal human response that’s left its imprint in the landscape and in the atmosphere and its charged—well, in some senses that’s a categorical mistake because [8:00] I’m imposing a kind of linear time span on what is actually a kind of infinite now, an infinite present moment—it seems like there’s another word for that, but it’s now coming to me—and in this infinite present everything is present simultaneously. This simultaneity of all things and all times—the peoples, I see them dancing in circles in a kind of frenzy, what you would imagine going on in the Bacchanalian ceremonies occurring right here across this vast glacial plain.

As I’m heading toward [9:00] Vandalia driving east, sort of northeast, on I-70 . . . wow! . . . and the striking thing about this is that so few people would find this landscape remarkable other in its utter flatness. And to them that would be a negative quality. If the land isn’t undulating into some hilly terrain then there must be something wrong. The human spirit seems to call for bodies of water and mountains and hills, and these open glaciated plains stand to be neglected. These are open, [10:00] sort of like a drumskin. It’s as if the earth is a drumskin or some other sort of plate. I would say bowl, but it’s not a bowl. It’s flatness is exactly what is part of the experience here. It’s a plate; it’s a skin; it’s a membrance. It’s sort of like a . . . yeah, a membrane. The surface of the Earth is this energetic membrane that responds to the various frequencies of vibrations, and as we humans engage with the energies of the sky, the atmospheric angels, the Matakin, let them swirl through our being.

All of this is being recorded, impressed, vibrating [11:00] through this membrane of the Earth’s surface and is being sensed below as well. So this is an Above-and-Below exchange, as is everything. And part of the key to coming to the awareness that is necessary for this particular moment is to recognize the relationship between what is going on in the atmosphere and in the heavens beyond, and what is going on on the surface, and what is going on below the surface: As Above, So Below. This is not simply some analogy or metaphor or some kind of magical homology; this is a literal relationship. As things are ignited [12:00] above, they draw into their circuit the energies of the surface and the energies below the surface. The surface is this membrane that records the energies above and below. They are impressed upon this holograph—recordings like pictographs, photographs. “Photograph” is a perfect analogy because the image of three-dimensional space laid out on the paper of the photograph, on the screen [13:00] of the computer, is also what happens with the surface of the planet. It is like some sort of vellum, like some sort of textured paper that is a recording medium. It’s like the Wunderblock, like Freud’s mystic writing pad, like the child’s toy—the cellophane over the wax. You draw the image and then lift the cellophane and it disappears. But in the wax below there is still the imprint. There’s imprint upon imprint upon imprint in this palimpsestic overlay so that all particular times and all messages are there on top of [14:00] one another in this two-dimensional plane, this holograph that records all of existence.

And that opens up infinitely upward and infinitely downward from that two-dimensional plane of the surface of the planet so that, for instance, in the Medicine Wheel the wheel is drawn is drawn on the surface of the planet. We have our horizontal relationships of East, South, West, North, but the wheel, the circle comes into fullness for the human experience when we then look upward and when we look downward from the center point. And at that center in an infinite set of radii [15:00] the human extends outward into a sphere of experience. It is no longer a circle but a sphere. And that sphere itself is a vortex; it’s a swirl of massive energy that condenses through the conduit of the human heart, the chakra. And this chakra is the point through which All That Is passes.

It’s as if you turn a glove inside out and you not only turn the glove inside out but the entire three-dimensional universe in which the glove is existing, that is pulled inside [16:00] out and through as well. You can take all of existence because it adheres to the surface of the glove and inheres in the nature of the glove. And that’s what the human heart does—the human chakra, the Heart Chakra, at the center of our being, the core of who we are, our energetic conduit. Ahkama hey shaymi heyla ko ana hey shakayahka. Ohno hokoma he shayni ey nah. And these Matakin—wow, there’s a great blue heron! My nature experience this morning was phenomenal. There’s another great blue heron!

All of existence passing through this chakra, and is the consciousness of this, [17:00] the energetic consciousness that allows us to become one with All That Is. And in that condition of being One with All That Is, it is not simply some kind of remedy for loneliness or alienation. This particular experience is what we are and what we are here for. Because all comes into being and passes through us, and we pass through our own Heart Chakras in this sense. We are the portals. We are the moving human portable portals. Yeshema heykama hayekeshe. And when we’re open to this experience, when we’re open to the energetic charges and flushes of our being as we radiate out from this point [18:00], we are divine, we are beautiful, we are the song of the universe. We sing forward! We sing beautifully, loudly in this harmonious relationship with All That Is. Ah! And this is what love is! This is what love is! The experience of the infinity of the One as it passes through our own Heart Center. Shahkama hayekeshe!

Charging the Fairy Line

May 24, 2014

During my meditation session yesterday morning here at the Super 8 Motel in Lawrence, Kansas and again this morning at Woodridge Park campground I was approached by a species of Fairies referring to themselves as the Subterranean Channel Fairies. They said that they work on the energetic streams that flow underground from Lawrence to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. (I assume that the stream goes beyond these two end points, but I haven’t confirmed that yet.)

I made contact with them in July of 2012 when Anna and I first moved to Lawrence for what turned out to be our three-week residence here before going to Finland. I learned at that time from them about this energetic stream extending through the mid-region of the country. I have known of it primarily as the Fairy Stream and understand that it is a subterranean portal or tunnel of a sort. It is connected throughout the region to extremely deep springs and other water channels as well as to massive crystals and crystal deposits.

While I was happy to be reacquainted with the Channel Fairies again, I was curious about whether they had a specific task for me today. I am very pleased to be introduced and reintroduced to various species of entities, but I am also hoping to get beyond the introductory phase and into some practical work.

Their answer was that, yes, they wanted me to know that there is one particular function that humans are especially talented at, even designed for, and that is serving as an energetic conduit that joins the energies of the heavens and the Earth. The Fairies told me that the Kyy Breath and the Dragon Heart Meditation are both designed to assist in this function.

A key aspect of this work is to channel the energies from below and above through the Heart Chakra. If one draws the Earth energies up to the heart and the heavenly energies down to the heart simultaneously and then projects those energies as a unified stream out through the Heart Chakra, then a person can “charge the channels,” as it was called. We can direct this unified energy stream through the energetic channels of the planet and thereby provide a level of human consciousness to the planetary stream. This is, in fact, one of the highest functions that a human being can serve, sanctifying the power points and projecting them as sacred sites or temples.

After being told this, I began channeling the unified heaven and Earth energies through my Heart Chakra into this energetic channel stretching from Lawrence to Arkansas. The effect was astounding. My entire being was charged to the highest degree and I could see the energetic continuum open up and expand from here to Eureka Springs. The feeling of engaging in such sacred work is beautiful and overwhelming. I was charged for the rest of the day.

The Tunnel of the Third Eye

[The following excerpt from Samuel Sagan’s book, Awakening the Third Eye, can be found at http://www.clairvision.org/books/ate/awakening-the-third-eye-excerpts.html.]

Section 3.6 The Tunnel of the Third Eye

A useful hint that can be given is not to consider the eye as a patch or a fifty cent coin on the forehead. In reality, the third eye is more like a pipe or a tunnel, going from the area in the middle of the eyebrows to the occipital bone at the back of the head.”

Figure 3.6 The tunnel of the third eye

 

All along the tunnel are a number of centers of energy, through which one can connect with different worlds and areas of consciousness.This explains why different systems may ‘locate’ the third eye in different places – each of them chooses a different center along the pipe as a reference point, or even a structure of energy adjacent to the tunnel.

Another important point to keep in mind is that the third eye is not physical. The grossest part of the third eye is a structure of energy belonging to the etheric body, or layer of life force.The etheric body has many connections with the physical body and therefore the third eye, being the ‘main switch’ of the etheric body, is also closely connected to certain structures of the physical body, for instance the pituitary and the pineal glands.

However, it would be over-simplified to say that the third eye is the pineal gland or the pituitary gland, as stated by certain books. For, as explained before, the tunnel of the third eye isn’t physical. It impacts its energy on a number of structures of the physical body, including the frontal sinus, the optic nerves and their chiasma, the nerves of the cribriform plate of the ethmoid bone, the pituitary and the pineal glands, some of the nuclei at the center of the brain, the ventricles of the brain and others. It would be far too simplistic and limited to pick one of these physical structures and label it ‘third eye’. For the third eye is not physical: it is an organ of energy. It may have some privileged connections with certain physical structures, but it can’t be limited to any of them.

A Gift to and From the Universe: Heart Chakra Vibration

Originally written on November 6, 2012

We have been given instructions for a phenomenal meditation practice that will change the world and ourselves.

First, acknowledge that you are vibration. You yourself are vibrating at various incredible frequencies that have healing potential and the power to change the fabric of reality as you know it.

Acknowledge and embrace this inner vibrational frequency. Know yourself as this vibration. Know yourself as this vibration. You are entering into the vibrations of your environment as a fellow vibratory force, flowing out in a loving frequency.

You are the Love Vibration.

Now that you can see and feel yourself as this vibration matching the vibration of your surroundings, feel this unity. Feel the world around you as it vibrates, hear its hum, feel its warmth and subtle movement, see its colorful display. Now see yourself as part of your environmental vibration, hear yourself attuning to the universal hum, feel yourself radiating in and out in this universal frequency.

Now open your heart chakra up in a gift of love for your lover or your child or yourself. Feel the opening up and vibrational force of this heart chakra work and gift. Take in the object of your love in this heart embrace. Feel yourself and your loved one merge into this hum and vibration.

Now open up your heart chakra vibration wider still and take in your surroundings. Take in the room or the outdoor space into which you are radiating at this very moment. Be one with the vibrations of your surroundings.

Now increase the expanse of your attention and your embrace in order to take in the entire planet, the entire solar system, the entire universe and all of its dimensions. Offer your heart chakra vibrations as the enveloping gift of love to the universe. Feel your love bathing all being in its glow and warmth and hum and radiance.

You are the vibration of the universe. You and the universe are one in this frequency. You are the greatest gift ever offered to the universe. And you are the most deserving of this gift offered by the universe itself.

Vibrate as one with all that there is and glow into infinity.
