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.

 

Monitor Speaks on My Connection with the Matakin Sky Spirits

June 27, 2015

[The following is a transcript of portions of a channeled conversation I had with the multidimensional composite being known as Monitor and most often channeled by Harvey Grady of Sedona, Arizona. The first section was channeled by myself as I was driving through Indiana on December 26, 2014 to pick up my daughter Tori in Kansas to bring her back to Ohio. The second section was channeled by Harvey Grady on June 24, 2015.]

SECTION 1: CHANNELED BY GABRIEL HARTLEY

MONITOR: [After the usual sacred invocations of Light and Grace] The Matakin have given you a name for you to call them, and this is an appropriate name. It has a long history for ancient peoples on this continent and in this part of the continent in particular—what is now known as the Midwest, especially what is now this I-70 corridor. The term Matakin, as we said, is one that was used in the past by many spirit seekers from many different tribes.

You can feel the connection to these spirits in Columbus, Ohio and as you drive across that plateau in Indiana as you are right now, exit 137 Connorsville and Hagerstown, heading west and all the way through Illinois. This is one particular spirit continuum.

So what we will also point to is the fact that you have felt an equally strong connection to the Sky Beings in Missouri and Kansas and Colorado and elsewhere, but you have also noticed a kind of distinct flavor, so to speak, that distinguishes those beings from the ones that you know in this Midwestern corridor.

Now to return to the question of the Matakin, The Matakin are a species of beings not unlike the Kachinas or the Hathors. They are originally from extraterrestrial sources. They are not unified in terms of origin. They make up a continuum of various beings from different parts of the multiverse, some of them from outside of this universe as it is recognized in your contemporary human consciousness of the human species.

There are very few movements on your planet that are allowing for the elasticity of definition of being that would allow for your understanding of this multiverse that we speak of. Contemporary physics is of course pointing in this direction. But there are many factors that keep contemporary physicists bound in their own trust in leaping forward. There are very few who have the soul connection that Einstein had in the sense of being able to tap into so strongly and faithfully their own intuitive makeup.

The Matakin, as you already know, are beings who oversee the comings and goings of various forces to this planet from outside and the leavings from this planet to the outside. You could think of them as border guards. To a certain extent, this is a very appropriate analogy. They are protectors; they are overseers; they are blessers; they are providers; they are shapers. There are many different aspects to the services they provide to the planetary being.

So we suggest that you speak directly with the Matakin, for this is a major part of your project, and this is where you now can go forward with this retrieved Soul aspect.

As we’ve said, the Matakin are similar to but not the same as the Kachinas that you have been working with. Your path can very well be defined as shamanism, as you’ve recognized, but there is no need to limit the definition of who you are or what you are capable of to anybody else’s definitions. You are in fact here to open up new understandings of what it means to be a shaman—what it means, for instance, to engage with beings such as the Matakin, the Kachinas, the Hathors, the People from Below, the Arcturans, the Procyons, the Betelgeusians, the other beings that you have made contact with, the Stone Beings, and to pursue a conversation with them, and to bring them into conversation with each other. For that is also one aspect of what you are here for as a mediator—to bring various types of beings together through the human continuum.

You are here to become one of those who understand and learn how to engage with the energies of the Universe. For this is another reason why you have been contacted by the Matakin, for that is in large part what they represent: the winds, the storms, the electromagnetic fields that pass through your atmosphere, and the connection to spirit that wind and breath have always meant to so many cultures of the human species.

 

SECTION 2: CHANNELED BY HARVEY GRADY

June 24, 2015

MONITOR’S RESPONSE:  AS YOU HAVE DISCOVERED, LIFE IN EARTH IN MULTIFOLD IN THE BODIES OF THE PLANET. THE SPIRITUAL HIERARCHY HAS PROVIDED A DIVERSITY OF BOTH HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL PATHWAYS FOR MULTIPLE LIFE FORMS TO UTILIZE IN THEIR GROWTH. THEIR GROWTH DIRECTLY AFFECTS THE BEINGS OF SUBSTANCE IN EACH OF EARTH’S BODIES – ADIC, BUDDHIC, CAUSAL, MENTAL, ASTRAL, ETHERIC AND PHYSICAL.

chakra fireTHE PLAN FOR EARTH EVOLUTION AS A LIVING BEING CALLS FOR HIGHER BEINGS TO ENTER LOWER BODIES, ENGAGE IN HORIZONTAL RELATIONSHIPS IN THE LOWER BODY, AND ELEVATE “LOWER” BEINGS AND SUBSTANCE VERTICALLY TOWARD THE HIGHER. THIS PLAN OF INTERVENTION OR EMBODIMENT PRODUCES MANY VARIATIONS.

WE FIND THAT THE MATAKIN SKY SPIRITS CONSIST OF ETHERIC, ASTRAL AND MENTAL BEINGS WHO UTILIZE THE SPINDLE AS AN ELEVATOR. THE SPINDLE WAS CREATED MILLIONS OF YEARS AGO BEFORE HUMANS OCCUPIED THE PHYSICAL BODY OF EARTH. THE AREA OF SEDONA, ARIZONA AND HUNDREDS OF OTHER SACRED LOCATIONS SERVE ALSO AS ELEVATORS. ADVANCED BEINGS SHAPED SUBSTANCE (MATTER) INTO A COMPLEX SET OF VORTICES THAT MOVE VERTICALLY THROUGH THE BODIES (PLANES) OF THE PLANET.

THE SPIRITUAL HIERARCHY UTILIZES THESE VORTEX COMPLEXES AS A WAY OF MAINTAINING APPROPRIATE STIMULATION FOR ELEVATION OF SUBSTANCE AND CONSCIOUSNESS THROUGHOUT THE PLANET.

 

The Matakin Emissaries Between the Heavens and the Earth

[The following is a transcript from an audio file recorded while driving between Nashville and Cahokia. I had attended the first day of proceedings (Thursday, September 18, 2014) at the Star Knowledge Conference at Montgomery Bell State Park about a half hour west of Nashville. On this Friday morning I was still greatly affected by the spirit energy of that gathering when the Matakin Sky Spirits began communicating with me near Princeton, Kentucky. I had first come into conscious contact with the Matakin in western Illinois on May 26, 2014, and now they were giving me more information about the role they play as emissaries and guardians of the Earth’s atmosphere.]

September 19, 2014

princeton, ky

There are no times better than this time, Gabriel. There are very few times when you would already enter into this conversation so baptized, so to speak, washed in the fluid energy of spirit that surrounds you and flows through your being. You are in an energetic circuit at this moment—

Wow! I just saw these amazing egrets in this lake I’m going over in southwestern Kentucky! I’m right outside Princeton, exit 45 on I-24. [Spirit language.] Ah, this is all so familiar! This is all an energetic line. [Spirit language.] And, not surprisingly, I’m going by a sign that says Kentucky State Penitentiary. They always put the prisons on these power lines! And they must tap into that power in some way in this mechanism of control, which I don’t fully understand—I think I don’t want to understand. I’m in denial. [Spirit talk.]

—So yes, Gabriel, you are in touch with the Matakin once more. You’re coming into the circuit, the circle. There is that 50 mile radius around the initial perimeter, but the energy strikes out from there in such amazing flows. Take it in. Experience it and ride with it, because you are riding on the fluid river energy of the continent! The Mississippi itself is one of those conduits. But that is only one. You are in the etheric plane. You are riding the etheric train of energy right now as you travel along this route. You are exactly right: this route, I-24 from Nashville into Illinois follows a major energetic line, a ley line that conducts major spirit energy, so to speak, from one point to another.

I-24 mapThis is a transit point. This is a line where spirit moves along in dimensions where time and space are no longer appropriate in terms of categories of understanding. And yet there is a literal three-dimensional base that contains this particular multidimensional energetic line. But along this line it’s a linear portal in a sense that allows for multiple pints of entry into massive, infinite, transdimensional travel.—

The lake is beautiful! The energy is so thick. And I am in this interesting state of consciousness where I am simultaneously taking in and channeling so many messages, and yet speaking in my own voice. [Spirit talk.] This is so thick! So the Matakin, I’m coming to realize, have a connection to the Kachinas. They are not identical to the Kachinas—at least the Kachinas who contact me, who are primarily the guardians, the overseers of the energetic portals from beneath the surface of the Earth. And they help, they oversee, they direct in many ways the travel of various entities along those energetic lines below the surface. But the Matakin work with them and in many senses this is a kind of joint energetic effort on a devic level where the Kachinas are working from below the subterranean levels up to the surface and the Matakin work from the atmosphere down to the surface, and in terms of surface level, it’s a sort of yin-yang relationship. The Sky Spirits and the subterranean Earth Spirits. Not that these Kachinas are solely Earth Spirits, but that is their primary relationship when it comes to human beings. [Yeshe anna hakamah hoike.] And they make use of subterranean portals and passageways that through the connection to the inner sun within the Earth allow for a kind of interdimensional travel to other universes in other planes of existence that humans can barely imagine.

The Matakin are one devic branch of the Sky Spirits who oversee these portal transit energies. They work with the extraterrestrials who come through the atmosphere—the ones who find that necessary—and the Star Beings make their way through the atmosphere to the planet. Of course, all of these beings, as are all beings, are extraterrestrial in origin. They have been working on this planet long before humans were introduced. The Matakin are emissaries. The Matakin are mediators, and they oversee the travel from the heavens to the Earth and vice versa. They are also related to the weather patterns. And so the Matakin are very concerned with the whole issue of chem trails and geoengineering through atmospheric interruption by humans. There will be a lot more for them to say about this in the future. They are laying that seed right now for me to consider.

But the Star Knowledge Conference is one of the most important gatherings wherein spirits of all kinds come together and work together in conscious relationship to the Star Beings and in conscious attention to the extraterrestrial origins of humanity.

—Wow! This is a very interesting moment in the development of humanity, for we are waking up to our extraterrestrial origins and recognizing that information provided through public media such as the X-Files television program barely scratched the surface and do so in a very limited way.

—Whoa! I just went over some big river, but I didn’t see the sign. Maybe there’s a sign here on the other end. It is—well, it says Lyon County. I’ll have to look that up. That’s quite a river. Cheshay anna hakamo hey sheyki anna hakamoah. Ah toshi anna makah. More to come.]

LUNA’S CONCERT OF COSMIC RELATIONALITY

June 4, 2015

By Gabriel Hartley

luna

Last night I was once again woken up at 3:30 A.M. This has been the case for years now, but this trend has been especially strong during the past two weeks. During this period, when I awaken I have the clear sense that some entity or another has deliberately woken me up in order to communicate with me, and usually I have a clear idea of who it is. But last night I was picking up a swirl of several different possible communicators with no real feel for who among this company might have woken me up. So given that by this point I was wide awake, I decided just to get up and start doing my tuning-in exercises until things got clearer.

As I walked into our yoga room I couldn’t help noticing how bright the moonlight was coming in through the window and glass door, so I went up to the door and looked out at the moon. The moon, having been full the night before, was dazzlingly beautiful. I immediately felt much happier at being awoken and greeted the moon by saying, “Hi, Luna!” Luna instantly responded with her typical “Hello, Gabriel,” and I instantly knew that she had been the one who had awoken me in the first place.

After gazing through the cloudy glass for a few minutes, I heard her suggest that I step out onto the upstairs deck to look at her directly, so I did. The difference was amazing. I stood there in awe, bathed in the moonlight and the beautiful night sounds of crickets and other animals. After a moment or two, realizing that I should be getting cold standing out in the crisp night air in my bare feet, sweatpants, and T-shirt, I thought for a second that I should go back inside. But Luna suggested that I stay outside with her. “Just notice,” she argued, “how pleasurable the cold night air feels against your skin when you stop worrying about discomfort. Such discomfort is simply an idea, an expectation that comes between you and your direct experience. Now just imagine that this cold air feels just as comforting as warm sunlight.”

Surprisingly, I immediately felt a warm blush throughout my skin and realized that she was right. This air still felt cold, but such a rich tactile relationship with the night air now felt comforting, even delicious in an unexpected way. So I let the cold sweep me away into a delirious swoon as I continued to gaze up at Luna’s brilliance. “How often,” I wondered, “do we deny ourselves such rich experiences simply because our ideas predetermine us to expect discomfort?”

As I let myself sink into this tactile swoon, I realized that this was a fleshly equivalent to the sense of being bathed in the beauty of the moon’s light. The glow on all of the world before me now enveloped me in its beauty. Soon I felt the soundscape draw me into just this same warm enveloping flow, and I began to feel utterly ecstatic in this bath of cold air, bright light, and rich sound. My entire bodily sensorium was aglow.

Among the night sounds I could pick out the splashing of animals in the creek just a hundred feet away, the slight breeze rustling in the trees, the insects, the night birds, and the distant coyotes.

Then I noticed the fireflies. There were just a few, maybe four or five covering the two or three acres I could see between me and the deep woods. The fireflies stood out in their glow against the already glowing landscape, and they appeared to be lighting up in some mysteriously choreographed pattern, a form of light music playing itself out before me in the moonlight.

Then I noticed spots of light glowing from the leaves of the apple tree just twenty feet or so in front of me. I thought this was some kind of optical illusion at first, but I soon realized that the tree was in fact lighting up before me as though a string of subtle Christmas lights was slowly glowing into brightness.

And only then did I begin to see the etheric swirl of the ring of elves that were dancing their gay circle dance in the light of the moon, drawing me into their dancing energetic flow. The spirits of the sky began swirling above, the water fairies sparkling and singing in the creeks surrounding the property, the Kachinas on the ridgetop softly chanting a solemn tune, and then Luna addressed me once more:

“See what miracles open up before you when you open yourself up to their possibility! Just such a miraculous opening awaits you at Serpent Mound, where you soon will be introduced to a new class of beings whom you have not yet met.”

By this point I was completely at one with everything in the universe, everything participating in this great cosmic moonlit dance and song. And Luna continued:

“This feeling of cosmic connection is your birth right. This is your human connection to All That Is. This is your path on this beautiful planet in this beautiful solar system. You are drawn into the Earth’s rhythms just as I myself am drawn into her gravitational field, and just as I influence Gaia’s own energetic flows in return. Each thing that exists has its own gravitational force that draws all things into relation with it, just as everything else draws it into the complete array of cosmic relations. The light and the dark, the positive and the negative, the warm and the cold—all are complementary moments in this cosmic dance, this ecstatic chorus as the universe flows into unity. You are a relational being, active and acted upon in a mutual energetic swoon of the cosmos. This is your birthright and your reason for being. Blessed are you, and blessed are all beings in this divine and infinite cosmos. Sleep well and remember this night always.”

Cahokia and the Stairway to Heaven

December 9, 2014

Here I am recording the experience I just had at Cahokia Mounds. This is Tuesday at 1:27 in the afternoon Central Time. And I just spent about the last half hour at the mounds on my way back to Ohio after a weekend in Kansas with Tori.

As usual, I went straight from the parking lot to what is referred to as the burnt pillars of the former stockade section—I’m not quite sure that’s exactly what it was. But I am often drawn to begin there my mound experience there, as Anna and I were when we first visited this complex almost three years ago now. As it turns out, Tuesdays are days when the park is closed. But luckily you can still be on the grounds. You just can’t go in the museum building, which is fine with me, having been here so many times now.

The Male Energy Twin Mound

The Male Energy Twin Mound

Next I went to the Twin Mounds across from the stockade. I began tuning into the energy of the first Twin Mound (Mound 60 or Fox Mound), the one to the east, which is the male energy mound, the flat-top mound opposite the rounded conical mound, which is the female energy. As I now see it, I was drawn to this mound to establish that male energy connection as a part of my path in this particular world. I then walked over to and stood at the vortex point (where the energies of the two mounds intersect in a vesica piscis) and went into Etheric vision, with the Mists of Avalon rising all around me as so often happens when I go into the Etheric mode.

As I was doing so, feeling the energy, letting the energy be channeled through me, I began to see various entities, lots of entities all over the grounds—I was facing south—with some very close to me, within ten or fifteen feet, others fifty feet, a hundred feet, some a few hundred feet away. They formed a wide series of concentric rings of beings who took this opportunity to encircle me as I engaged in this particular moment.

Cahokia Birdman tablet_HRoe_2012At this point I was then called down to Mound 72, which I haven’t visited again in quite some time after having some very powerful visions there. I then realized that I had been urged to go to the Twin Mounds in order to ground myself in that energy, the male energy that I am identified with in this lifetime, the fusion of those in the vortex, in the vesica—and with the power of those energies I was then able to go down and once more confront the Birdman of Cahokia, the sacrificial priest of Mound 72 who had been buried there with several young females. As I went down there I felt that this was definitely what I was called here to do.

I was called to read the explanatory sign once again, which I originally was going to ignore, having read it so many times before. But this time I noticed a little paragraph towards the bottom that talked about the alignment of the mound.

IMG_2464The particular angle of the mound is set perfectly for sunrise during the Winter Solstice and sunset during the Summer Solstice. So I walked to the southeastern corner of the mound and climbed up onto that southeastern point and stood facing the southeast, the direction of the Winter Solstice sunrise. Especially given that I’m called on again to carry out the Winter Solstice sunrise ceremony for the People from Below in this moment of Emergence into the Fifth World, I could tell that this was a very important point for me.

mistsAs I was standing on the mound I then became very enraptured by the energies of the place and felt myself expand throughout that energetic field. Again the mist rose, a very thick mist this time, exactly as in the movie The Mists of Avalon. They were so dense that I could not really see through all of the mist to the woods before me. The woods, by the way, are filled with fairies—this is a very powerful fairy spot, and has been for much longer than humans have been on this planet. They have been very important in some of the stages of development of various cultures at Cahokia in the past.

As I was facing the Winter Solstice point and just going into the Etheric vision, again I could see many, many beings standing before me and could feel them in a ring around me and throughout the woods.

The birds, by the way—the starlings, I believe they were, or swallows, who fly in these murmuration patterns—had been swooping all around, and I realized that they were actually the ones who had drawn my attention to Mound 72 when I was at the Twin Mounds. They flew around me and then landed in the trees in front of me, staying in front of me like witnesses or supporters the entire time I was down at Mound 72. They were chattering away, singing and chirping while I was engaged in this particular ceremony.

I could see all of the fairies and various other beings. And as I was looking at the beings, allowing myself to see more clearly what these various entities might look like, suddenly a funnel of spiral energy opened up from the base of the mound where I was standing on perhaps a 30º angle from the incline of the earth, an angle that would probably match up with a particular moment of the sunrise on the Winter Solstice.

stairway-to-heaven-mountain-dreamsBut the peculiar thing about the spiral was that while I could see the energies rotating in a spiral pattern, I also very clearly saw this turn into a stairway. I could see the steps reaching off into the heavens, which was peculiar for me. I’ve never seen anything quite like that before. And as I was looking at the stairway I then could see beings, probably hundreds or more, entities, energetic beings just walking up and down the stairway that was connecting the mound to the heavens in a dramatic way.

And at that point I was reminded of the Emergence and the Solstice and also that in Pueblo tradition the Kachinas come and go on the Solstices. I realized that this was a universal vision for the Winter Solstice, what the Hopi refer to as the Soyal Ceremony. I could see various beings coming down from the heavens on the stairway to the Earth. And I could then see them walk right through me as they passed along the ridge of Mound 72 and then walk up another stairway to heaven towards the northeast from that opposite corner of the mound (the coordinate point marked by the San Francisco Peaks in Arizona), now re-ascending for the Summer Solstice.

hopi_dance1921After seeing the Kachinas and other beings ascend back into the heavens, I knew my ceremony was over, that my vision had come to its conclusion, and that it was time to give my thanks to the spirits of Cahokia for allowing me one more chance to see into the magical dynamics of its past and to prepare for my greeting ceremony for the People from Below on the coming Winter Solstice.

Message from the People from Below

November 30, 2014

Reflecting_cavern_lakeWe are the People from Below, one of the groups with whom you have been making contact on a very subtle level throughout the past year or more. You have felt our presence especially when traveling across Missouri and through western Illinois, and we have much more to tell you about that particular region.

But at this point we wish to focus on this portal here on your property—the Second Portal.

As you know from the ceremony you were led to perform last year on the Solstice, we began on that day a serious stage of our Emergence into this, the very end of your Fourth World as the inauguration of the Fifth.

And we have spent the year testing the waters, so to speak, for it is here at this Second Portal that the waters of the Earth rise above the surface in these sacred pools seen over by the fairies who dedicate their existence to such a process.

emergenceWe speak with and are guided by the Kachinas who have drawn you here, the Kachinas who see over the subterranean passage from one world to the next, from one particular manifestation of being to another, and it has been their job to oversee the arrangements of power, the configurations of energy that make their way into the complex known as the structure of life in a given World.

For each World has its own energetic structure, its own complex of relations of energy, and you are at a turning point now, the transition from one to another, and it is this confluence of world energies that creates a lot of the excitement and a lot of the chaos of the present moment.

For many people are waking up; many people are being instigated to move.

Not everyone understands the particular impulse that drives them. Not everyone recognizes the calling to a higher path than they may have been aware of in previous days in their lives. And some people under the influence of these impulses turn in what we might say are negative directions from a certain limited perspective. They are directions that are not fully consciously aligned with the higher purpose of all beings.

There are others, on the other hand, who are recognizing this calling, who are seeing that they are part of a much larger universal contingent of energies from the heart.

burning-cosmic-heartIt is your hearts that open you up to the possibilities of this change from one World to another. And it is through the heart that these worlds open up and unfold for you. Your heart is itself an abyss; your heart is a black hole, in a sense; your heart is a portal that transports you from one realm to another. You contain All That Is within your heart. You have access to All That Is within your heart. So it is not moving outward but deeper and deeper inward to the vast universe that is at the center of your own being, in your heart. So when Don Juan speaks of a path with heart, it is in part recognition of the heart that is within, that contains All That Is that is a path inward.

Waterhouse-Hylas-NymphsYou have felt the call of the fairies in this pool for the last year and a half, and you have felt them much more strongly in recent days. This is because it is a time for you to gather your forces, your resources, to bring your tribe together and to focus on this Emergence that plays itself out with the Winter Solstice and the Summer Solstice.

We ask you to prepare for an event of such recognition here on this property with the people who you believe will understand, who you know will understand the purpose of such a call. We wish for you to make it as open as possible. As soon as you initiate such a call, things will fall into place. Bring those forces here together in unity of the heart—the universal heart at the center of all beings—and all else will fall into place.

We thank you for the energy you all have brought to your locale, to your continent, to your universe.

Shay shay hanna ay kaymay kayahshayah anna mah ho koinay, chee shiahta, oh kahma hokah ayki, sheynay ayki anna ahkahma a koishay. [Rattle sound] Shay shay shahna ohkamo ho toinay ehkimay ehkimay ehkay ahkasha, shahna ahkamo, yehshay ena hehki, dohshta hanna moh koikay, deeshiah tohmo oh koishay.

Blue Kachina Message to Humanity #4

Attune Yourself in Atonement

September 15, 2014

reikiAs you will see, part of the exercise for this line in the Song of Humanity is to encourage you to find a way to let go of your own desire to control and create the events as they unfold before you. What we are asking you to do instead is to recognize that, yes, you are a co-creator of the events that you participate in. But your co-creation involves on a very critical level your ability to let go of your desire to control.

Even when that desire is guided by higher intention, higher principles, higher goals, when you begin with those intentions, those principles, those goals, you are beginning with concepts, you are posing up front the conceptual framework within which truth might unfold for you, might show itself in the space that you could otherwise allow to open up before you. So rather than putting your concepts on the table and using them for creating a framework for controlling how you then define what else you find participating in the unfolding of truth on that table, we ask you to simply sit back and behold, to let things unfold before you in the space of acceptance and openness created when you let go of the desire to control.

This means that frequently you might find yourself believing that you are actually moving forward according to notions, concepts, goals that have been suggested to you by higher entities, your Higher Self, and that you then go on to pursue them. You might indeed be getting suggestions from a higher source, but their suggestions will rarely take the form of providing you with some conceptual term or notion to put forward as the framing mechanism for making sense of what then unfolds. Instead, what you are asked in a higher sense to do is to go with the flow, to go with what you feel opening up before you. And step-by-step following that guiding light without trying to predetermine where your destination might be, where this particular journey might lead you.

It is this opening up the space before conception, before brief recognition of concepts that guide you as principles for action, for thought, for behavior, for understanding. We instead are asking you to use this space of conception in its other sense—as a space for giving birth to new modes of creation, new modes of expansion, new modes of unfolding, for humans are in a constant state of unfolding and under-standing. And they should be standing under the display of wonder and magic that unfolds before them rather than to be posing concepts that provide the pre-determined groundwork for that apprehension of wonder.

So bring forth this message on atonement and attunement and we will continue to speak to humanity as a whole in universal terms as yet another Message to Humanity. We work with you at all stages of composition, for it is com-position, that is, bringing together, positioning together, com-posing as a mode of attaining unity.

Our last message concerned unity and the necessity for humanity to start recognizing the necessity for unity. At this point we wish to pose one more step, a step out of that field opened up by the desire for unity among humans, the unity among humans that alone can make possible an effective human interaction and community with other entities on a species level, on a planetary level. So that next step forward that we suggest is one of attunement, and we wish for you to meditate on the senses of this word that you have in English—attunement—and ultimately, in ways that we will lead you to consider as we go on, the relationship between attunement and atonement. For it is through this attuning atonement that humans can bring themselves to move forward beyond a mere concept of unity, of unification beyond the simple desire and recognition of the necessity for unification, and realize that that unification has to involve a kind of attunement.

So if we begin with the word “attunement,” and you think back to our message on unification, we suggested that each of these communications is in a sense the production of another line in what we called the Song of Humanity. And that musical reference is not incidental or accidental. It is crucial to the very feeling of understanding that we are inviting you to participate in. If you think of attunement in its musical sense, you are the orchestra preparing to sing together, to play your instruments together in a way that produces a symphony of humanity, a song of the earth in which the human voice resonates so beautifully.

When you tune in together, when you align your instruments of expression, those instruments that best allow you to express your very being in a given moment, we allow you a way to imagine how humans might consider and might enact the kind of unification we spoke of in the previous message. Imagine yourselves as the orchestra sitting down together, tuning your instruments, preparing for the greatest symphony you have ever played together in all of the existence of humanity. This is humanity’s great song, and you are tuning your instrument in order to play your part in that great musical composition.

It is through that musical composition, that alignment of resonances, that alignment of voices, that alignment of unified intention and rhythm, timbre, tone, not always seeking some simple harmonious chord but perhaps some energetic play of discord in order to emphasize what needs to be emphasized and not washed over in the simple rhythms and tones of accord. Discord is not the opposite of accord; discord is another mode of accord. It’s when you together as the orchestra, as the one unified entity, the one unified musical organism playing this song, recognize how you work together in this creation of the universe. And as you let yourself go in the performance, as you let your voice of your instrument sing forth, as you play your drum, vibrate that bow on those strings, press the keys of that wind instrument, you bring forward your own voice in the creation of attunement. And when you are attuned, then you can move on in your performance of that great Song of Humanity.

When humanity can allow itself to consciously seek this kind of attunement in which discord is another mode of accord from a higher perspective that allows for the various voices and rhythms and movements to play in and through each other, then you can begin to imagine the necessity for atonement—the atonement only made possible by the previous recognition of the necessity for attunement. Atonement only has genuine meaning when you are in tune with and seeking greater attunement with all of the universe, all of humanity, all of this planetary creation that you are yourself participating in in its unfolding.

“Atonement” is the English word these days referring to various modes of contrition and reparation where guilty parties express their sorrow and seek forgiveness. They say, “I am sorry for the pain and the suffering I might have contributed to in my previous ventures that were out of attunement with humanity’s great song. I apologize for acting out from an egocentric platform which at the time best expressed what I understood to be the most appropriate and opportune behavior or mode of expression. Yet seeing a greater overview of how all of these various voices come together in this attunement, I am sorry for imagining that my voice was more important and more pure and more to the point of truth than those others.”

It is only when we can humbly let go of our singular claim to truth that we can begin to recognize the claims of truth expressed by others. For when we can begin to recognize how the various expressions that seem so discordant might on a higher level actually be working towards a higher resolution of energies which from a limited perspective appear to be in conflict and only capable of producing conflict and pain and suffering and anger and hatred—yet pure atonement, pure expression of contrition is not satisfied by expressions of sorrow and of being sorry, but is a recognition that All are One.

Atonement is At-One-Ment. It is the recognition that at base we are all one being, one people, one expression of this total planetary being as it works itself out toward a more beautiful and harmonious expression of energies and tones. That At-One-Ment is the ultimate goal of atonement. It is not to hide in shame. It is not to use expressions of being sorry to hide behind when you haven’t in fact truly grown in your comprehension of the apparently conflicting forces at play. True atonement comes out of true attunement. When you are truly attuned to the other impulses and vibrations of your fellow human beings and, ultimately beyond them, the other entities participating with you in the Song of this planet and this universe, you are ready for a true understanding of atonement, At-One-Ment: the true unity that we spoke of in the previous message.

To repeat: that unity does not come about simply through good intention, for good intention can often unwittingly provide the framework for further conflict. You are so sure of your good intention that you are no longer capable of understanding the good intention of others. You are so sure that you have found the best possible way of making sense of and expressing the conflicting resonances of a given set of circumstances that you become convinced that you are the sole possessor of the words of truth. Atonement moves beyond that. True atonement moves beyond Ego. It’s a giving up of Ego and saying, “I am part of a larger resonance, a larger array of forces, energies, vibrations, frequencies, and only in the illusion, the Myth of Separation can I even imagine that my one voice can be true in itself.

When you can imagine all of these voices as various modes of expression of truth, however one-sided they may appear, however limited they may appear to your presumed perspective of what is appropriate and right and true, only at that point of true recognition of attunement can you move forward to the creation of atonement where all of humanity comes together and realizes that true atonement, the true At-One-Ment is acceptance. It is Love.

The saying, “Love your neighbor as yourself” is a very important step toward attunement and atonement. An even greater step in that direction is the embracing of the saying, “Love your enemy as yourself.” When you can get to the point where you can actually feel the truth of that expression from within, and from a non-egocentric position step forward into the universe where you are actively loving your enemy, then you are actively seeking attunement and atonement. It is only at that point that you can truly be sorry for your previous expressions guided by well-meaning but limited definitions of truth.

So prepare your instrument. Practice it well. For it is your mode of expression. It is your mode of excelling, of letting yourself go in the grand symphony of existence, in the great song of life, the great Song of Humanity. Become perfect at the expression of love and joy through your instrument, and tune that instrument to those of the other members of your orchestra. Then your own expression will truly resonate and truly find its place in the Song of Humanity.

Go forward seeking the peace that you know you at base are yourself. You are peace. You are love. You are attunement. You are atonement. Move forward with an open heart. Move forward into the space of creation and let the resonances unfold before you, and let your spirit be moved in that unfolding as it moves forward. Do not try to predetermine the outcome of that song. Go forward with the understanding that very beautiful and mysterious strains will find utterance through your voice in ways completely unexpected by yourself. Go sing your unexpected song of beauty. Go forward in your attunement, in your atonement, in your song of love, which is the Song of Humanity.

Blue Kachina Message to Humanity #3

Unify yourself by resonating in the love that defines you as a species

Love-Fire

This is the Blue Kachina speaking to Humanity, speaking to all entities engaged in the work of furthering the development of this planet, this planet known as Gaia, this planet known as Turtle Island—this rock in the sky that you all call home, and for whom all of these energies come into concerted orchestration in order to allow for a place for your own song, your own resonance.

So as you breathe in this air of this atmosphere of this planet that you call home, recognize that you are joining in in spirit with the spirit of all, for the atmosphere is one plane on which all come together as spirit. The Sky Spirits work in this way, by helping to mobilize and orchestrate the various impulses of the various entities on this planet, in the atmosphere that makes up this planet, beneath the surface in the subterranean passages and waterways of this planet. We call and unite you all together in breathing in one breath, one unison of spirit—one spirit for one planet. And as you breathe out, your own being flows out into and joins with the being of all other entities on this planet.

gazaWe wish to speak to the issue of conflict, the issue of strife, the issue of pain and sorrow resulting from such conflict, resulting from such strife, resulting from such misunderstanding brought about by the Myth of Separation. The Myth of Separation is a particular energetic framework that has been in existence on this planet for quite some time. A lot of what can be called harm has come about as a result of this. A lot of creativity has been released as a result of this.

What we are hoping for at this point as we all join together with you is that you will recognize this Myth of Separation, recognize the accomplishments and drawbacks that have been produced under its auspices, and recognize that it is time to move on. It is time to recognize your kinship. It is time to recognize your membership in the planetary family of beings. When we speak this way, the conflicts that exist among humans appear so small and so relatively insignificant when humans are seen as one element among the many that come together as the consciousness of this planet.

Myth of Separation

Myth of Separation

When we talk of unity of purpose, unity of intention, unity of will between humans and nonhumans (fairies and elves and angels and all kinds of elemental beings throughout the various levels of the planet), one might imagine that such interspecies cooperation should appear to be more difficult than bringing conflicting groups of humans together for any such purpose. And yet the reality so often is that people tend to imagine finding the grounds for unifying all humans to be much more difficult than finding the ground for unifying humans and nonhumans.

Humanity at this moment is coming to a very important point of recognition. Humans at this point are ready to step out of the Myth of Separation that keeps one human separated from another. It is this unity of purpose on the human plane that we draw your attention to and that we ask you to concentrate on and meditate on, to direct energy towards, for it is in such energetic conscious meditation that you can change the vibration of the planet. You can change the resonance of your heart and you can bring the resonances of the various groups of the human being into a particular conversation, into a particular orchestration, and when humans—no matter how diverse, no matter how separated by war, by greed, by fanaticism, by single-mindedness—begin to recognize the unity that exists among themselves, then they start to resonate differently. They start to move forward with a very different sense of purpose and a very different sense of relationship.

When humans start to recognize that there is one human family, no matter how diverse its origins and its modes of expression, this unity of family becomes real. It becomes an actual expression of a unified resonance from out of the hearts of all humans. Eventually, as more and more humans become aware of the power of their own heart resonance and become aware of the power of joining in unison the resonance of each individual heart, those more resistant hearts are affected. You can see this in a heightening of hysterical attitude and behavior, where certain long-standing assumptions about how the world is organized, how people within that world should operate, are now challenged, where the grounds of everyday awareness are falling beneath their feet and they no longer know where they stand on a particular issue, no longer know where they should direct their energies, their intentions, their love, their anger, their fear, their joy, their sorrow.

What we come to speak of today, in other words, is the very real possibility of a bringing together of all humanity into a singular purpose and focus.

It is this faith in such a possibility that allows for it to flourish.

It is going forward, despite the evidence to the contrary—the continuing wars, the continuing bloodshed, the continuing lies and justifications.

It is going forward beyond the continuing separations, beyond the devotion to separation.

It is in challenging the claims to priority, to originality, to special nature and special dispensation—it is by challenging all of these Myths of Separation with messages of connection, with messages of heart, by saying, “Don’t you realize how we are all one being? Don’t you realize how we all come from one source, this very planet that we have chosen to participate in during this lifetime?”

This is a message concerning the consciousness of union, the consciousness of bringing all of humanity together as a family, as a unity, as a being capable of relating to the untold number of other beings, other entities on this planet.

When humans come together in a united purpose, in a united heart, then there will be a dramatic shift in the energy of the entire planet. When humans learn that they are all brothers and sisters to one another, they will then be able to recognize their kinship to those who are not human. For some people, this kinship to that beyond the human is easier to grasp than kinship within the human family. It is easier to identify with the animal kingdom than with the various warring nation states on this planet, the various spiritual traditions transformed into warring institutions. For others, there is an even greater sense of alienation in relation to the natural world, and certainly in relation to what is often referred to as the supernatural world.

ONEhumanitySo in line with the previous messages (see the Blue Kachina Messages to Humanity #1 and #2), we bring forward yet another slogan, you might say, another line in the Song of Humanity that we are hoping to compose together with you. Just as we spoke of grounding yourself in the traditions and the energies that most sustain and excite you, and just as we talked about freeing yourself by embracing your shadow, we now ask that you love yourselves in allowing yourself to imagine another world, another way of being, another way of resonating together in unity. It is especially in times of great conflict that such a message is all the more important. It is in the midst of the sound of missiles soaring through the air and exploding around you that your song of unity has all the more purpose and necessity.

So we call on you to recognize this loving nature as a core principle of human identity itself in loving unity. This is a key element of what it means to be human. Humans have come to this planet in order to foster and develop their capacity for love. And in this loving unity they can best resonate with the other elements, elementals, the planet.

So go forward in peace, in love, in unity of purpose, grounded in that which excites you, freed by the embracing of your shadow, and unified in the love that defines you as a species.

Thank you for listening. Thank you for your song in the universe.

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.
