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.

 

Naiad Season

March 15, 2015

naiads

After two of the harshest winters I can remember (harsher even than my winter in Finland 2012-2013), this year’s spring has come in like a cosmic miracle. One fine moment heralding spring’s arrival was my chance to teach Thoreau’s “Spring” chapter of Walden once again, this time at exactly the moment when the ice and snow were melting, revealing the patented forms of the Artist who made us all. But even more inspiring was my conversation this morning with the Naiads.

The Naiads—the freshwater nymphs of the springs—are always present and conversant, of course, even when the spring waters are flowing beneath rather than above the surface of the earth. But this morning, with at least ten acres of our property madly flowing with newly replenished springs, the Naiads were absolutely giddy in celebration of the birth of the new year (which in older times began in March).

I was walking around the meadows, creeks, springs, and ridges of the property all morning while my son Kivi was sleeping strapped to my chest in a Snuggli pack. As we approached each newly-refilled pool of spring water, the water fairies or naiads began singing and chattering more excitedly than I have ever heard them before. I was very happy to be able to combine this moment of parenting and spirit talk, knowing that in this experience Kivi was receiving an energetic bath of a sort just as I was.

While most of my conversations with the fairies this morning concerned myself, they did assure me that anyone who patiently tries to can tune into the celebration of the naiads at the springs. Naiads, I have learned, are far more outgoing with humans than are most species of fairies, which might account for all of the myths and folk legends concerning the seductiveness of these water fairies. While I take this to be somewhat of an embellishment, this much seems true: if you learn to open your heart in as ego-less a way as possible to the spirits of nature, you will eventually—perhaps after lots of internal self-harmonization—be able to join in their springtime celebration and song.

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.

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.

Smoky Mirror Vision

March 30, 2014

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Triple Spiral of the Portals

October 4, 2013

I will attempt to reconstruct what I have learned in the past few days from my meditations on the hill above our house. There is a lot of information that remains fuzzy at the present moment, but a general structure of significance seems to be falling into place.

triple spiral

Triple Spiral

During much of August and September Anna and I were led to focus most of our attention here on the First Portal, which was revealed to involve a heavenly or celestial vortex. (For the sake of coherence, I will repeat some of the information I have relayed in previous accounts.) I had many direct and indirect encounters with the Archangel Gabriel here, as well as with Michael and other unidentified angelic powers. The general message seems to have been that we should continually anchor ourselves in this Angelic Force, not only for the gifts we would receive from such beings but perhaps even moreso because this would impel us to acknowledge and claim our own Angelic Nature. One aspect of this message is that humans are multidimensional, complex beings made up of many elements, including the Angelic. We are Terrestrial Angels.

The Second Portal was shown to involve the energies of an Earthly Vortex—that is, a vortex arising from subterranean sources. This portal is overseen by Water Fairies and represents a point of contact or entry into the subterranean water systems throughout the planet. I have been led through various meditations and exercises for connecting to and with these water forces. Given the fact that Fairies in general have a hard time dealing with the intensity of Human Energies, the Elves mediate between us and the Fairies in order to moderate the energy flow from us humans to the Fairies, just as the Elves mediate between Humans and Angels in order to lesson the intensity of Angelic Energies that Humans come into contact with.

The Third Portal, which I have barely been led to explore as yet, represents what I can only at this point call Alternative Realities. This seems to refer to dimensional planes that I cannot even imagine at the moment, planes that go beyond our usual spatial coordinates of Heaven (Causal), Earth (Physical), and the Underworld (Etheric). At the moment I can only imagine dimensional realms existing as alternative universes, realms of experience that we can slip into and out of, but not without preparation if we wish to avoid serious trauma.

Now to the realizations of the past three days: We were drawn to meditate on the hilltop in the meadow which we have mown and where we sit to enjoy the beauty of our surrounding landscape and the change of seasons. I was told ahead of time that this spot was not chosen randomly by us but has special energetic significance in relation to the rest of the property. After getting attuned through some Kundalini Yoga chants and our own Kyy Breath Centering Meditation, I was told to tap into the energies of the First Portal. As I was sitting facing north, this meant that the First Portal was off behind us to the left, or to the southwest of the hilltop. As I did so, I immediately felt the presence of Gabriel and was led through some connecting exercises to connect with my own Angelic Energies. This led to familiar and still amazing experiences as the energies flowed through my various bodies.

Next I was led to connect to the Fairies and Elves at the Second Portal, who took me through now familiar exercises in which I engaged with the forces of the entities themselves and then to the Water Elementals I again flowed through the subterranean water systems of the planet.

Then I was asked to open myself up to the energies of the Third Portal, which I hadn’t yet been invited to do. While the energies of the Angelic Portal tend to be very electric, as though currents of energy flow through me and extend my being into a larger energetic circuit, and the energies of the Second Portal feel, not surprisingly, more liquid and bubbling, the energies of the Third Portal felt much more substantial in the sense of solid and dense. Yet the feeling of these energies was very comforting and warming. If you could say that the First Portal energies give rise to a flying sensation and those of the Second Portal give rise to a swimming sensation, the Third Portal energies felt more like a warm, comfortable night in bed under wonderful blankets and on luscious pillows. I cannot think of any time I have experienced this particular quality of energy before.

The Triple Spiral

As amazing and welcome as this new Third Portal experience was, I had not yet experienced the greatest rush of flows yet to come. This happened when I suddenly began to notice that I could feel the energies of all three portals flowing through me (and me through them) simultaneously. I asked my Guide whether this were true, and the answer was that this was the most important experience for me to go through and ultimately to consider—the relationship between the Three Portals with us at the Center Point of perspective and signification. I was invited to bathe in this new combined flow, and as I did the image of the Celtic Triple Spiral suddenly appeared before my consciousness. I could at that moment see each portal simultaneously rotating in a counter-clockwise circle. What I mean by “simultaneous” is that even though each portal lay quite a distance from me in physical space and each in its own planetary location, I could literally see each portal spiral as if I were hovering over each simultaneously, seeing three different geo-spatial coordinates at once as they lay stacked on top of one another.

Newgrange Spiral Stone

Newgrange Spiral Stone

At the same time, nevertheless, I was seeing the very spot where Anna and I were sitting—the hilltop above the Second Portal and below the First (to the left) and Third (to the right up on the highest ridge top). And I realized that this spot was the point of convergence of the energies of each of the three portals. Just as I was seeing myself hovering above each portal, watching each spin in equal rhythm with the others, I could also see the spot where I was sitting serving as the conduit for the flows of all three portals. I said to my Guide, “This is the significance of the Celtic Spiral!” (which we had seen throughout Ireland during our travels in June), and my Guide said, “Yes!” I then heard the following statement: “The Image, the Word, the Object, the Gesture—all are portals, points of convergence where multiple realities intersect. The key is to recognize the invitation to travel these overlapping vectors, to see these points of convergence glowing in their infinite possibilities.”

This statement proves especially significant for me as I have been spending the past few weeks intensely reading the Sufi philosophers, especially Ibn ‘Arabi and Suhrawardi, and commentary on them by Henry Corbin. A key element of their thinking and spiritual experience for me is the way in which they approach the Image or the Figure—every Image and Figure!—as an archetype for the relationship between the Human Angel (humans in their angelic aspect) and the Holy Spirit as represented by (figured by) the Angel Gabriel. To have this energetic and imagistic revelation by means of the Angel-Elf-Fairy influence of my portal experiences was mind blowing! This was exactly the kind of unification of my spirit visions and my intellectual exercises that I had been seeking. And it all came via the image of the Celtic Triple Spiral which I had been meditating on for months in conjunction with the Kachina spiral images of the U.S. Southwest.

In short, things feel as though they are quickly and massively coalescing for me on a multitude of levels. Wow!

Portal #2 Lessons: Water Spirits, Water Fairies, and the Human Dimension

September 25, 2013

Last night as Anna and I were meditating, I was drawn into a conversation with the Water Fairies of the Second Portal we are working with, who then drew me into conversation with the local Water Spirits. The Fairies were teaching me a meditative means of opening up to the Water Energies and of conceiving of our human connections to the Water Dimension of the Planetary Being.

The meditative opening involved having me focus on my own Water Being, the fact that the human body is composed of 70% water. (I see online that the average adult human, from a scientific perspective, is made up of roughly 60% water, but the Fairies continue to speak of 70%. I assume there is a reason for the higher number that the Fairies speak of.)

Once I began contemplating this fact, the Fairies then had me “engage” my Water Being—that is, they had me sense the water content within my own body and feel it get charged up through this increase in attention to it. It seemed as though the simple act of focusing on your body water is enough to stimulate its vibratory quality. I felt my body water begin “boiling,” in a sense, as it began bubbling as if in excitement within my body. My entire Water Being grew increasingly ecstatic as I continued to focus on it in this way.

Once I felt conscious of and connected to my own Water Being, the Fairies then had me feel the same energetic charge of the Water Being of the landscape as the underground springs and water channels began to bubble up in an energetic conversation with the Water Being of my body. At a certain point the energetic rush of my own body and that of the landscape reached a point of ecstatic equilibrium, an energetic union.

The Fairies then told me that this linking of consciousness was an example of and practice for greater engagement with the Planetary Being, here in its water aspect. Just as I have spent the past year engaging with the Planet on an Etheric level, I am now (I was told) developing a conscious engagement with the Planet’s Water aspect. Even prior to my Etheric connection, I had been engaging with the Stone Beings and the Planetary Being in its Mineral aspect.

I was then reminded that in my early stages of Awakening in the Fall of 2011 I had begun cultivating and exploring this Water Being connection. This began with my education under David Yarrow as he taught about the Earth’s Water Systems and the ways by which we can connect to them. I was then reminded further of my connection to the underground lake systems of Switzerland, the underground loch systems of Scotland, and my engagement with the spirits of the well beneath the Pohjola Building in Helsinki.

As last night’s meditation continued, I grew to see myself intimately connected to the entire globe’s Water Being and was told that this connection, in conjunction with the other elemental connections that I am developing a relationship with, would lead to further insights and interactions.
