    There are hills to the east of us toward Gunnison that remind me of the look of the Tor at Glastonbury. Almost like one has that same meandering labyrinth to the top...

    Would like to eventually settle in some hills like that.

    Rescued three kittens from tree across street. Six weeks old probably. Couple dead ones in there, so mom gone awhile. That was 7/4. They're recovering nicely! Our dog is VERY curious...

    Perhaps. Maybe ONE. We're sponsoring them for adoption...

    Just feeding them and expanding their world view for now!

    Others are helping and lending support. We're putting their story out through Katmandu Paonia and their Facebook page.

    If I could now figure out how to post pictures...

Over the last few months I’ve been having additional health challenges with vertigo – a new thing for me – not just fleeting light-headedness, but full blown can’t-walk dizziness with nausea and vomiting, lasting for hours.  Now I do realise that this isn’t the worse sort of challenge we can have, but it certainly isn’t pleasant and not something I would consciously welcome.  Until last week the timing of these episodes has been noticeably kind to me, not falling during my working days and I’ve thought how difficult it would be if I had a severe bout at work – which is exactly wha

    Good for you! We're MORE than our physical bodies, so...

    Any time you can persevere and love others regardless of personal circumstances, you're REALLY doing the work.

    My challenges this life have been less in the physical, more mental I would say. And it's ALL emotional...

    Similar though with the allowing others to be and helping when I'm able.

    Was one of the three WingMakers keys along with gratitude and seeing or recognizing the Source in all things. They all tie together though. But that one about respecting others for where they are was the hardest for me to understand.

    Challenging in this system where we've been trained to compete against one another and compare ourselves similarly. Whack.

    Everyone has different gifts! And lessons to learn to LOVE! And, ultimately, everyone has to do their own time.

    If you can do yours with a genuine smile and know it's precious and won't be this way again, more power to you.

    There's an "old" Stone Temple Pilots song "And So I Know" with those sentiments. Especially love the refrain, "campfire girls make you feel alright"...

    Loved going to camp when I was a young lad. Magical time. Old friends and new. Good times.

    Thank you so much, guys, for your support and encouraging words.


    I've just had a session and a chat with my chiropractor this afternoon, and I'm feeling so much better, feeling somehow empowered in my heart and much more optimistic as well as a physical release. Perhaps this is what happens when blockages are removed and the qi or prana can flow more freely again. For me there appears to be a mystical, holistic, even spiritual aspect to vitalistic chiropractic which seems to be missing from other similar modalities - or perhaps it's just down to the individual practitioner ;-)! ALL IS WELL!

    Good old Gregg. It's long but worth it. Never put a video on before! Had to have the wife help me figure it out like some old man and the internet. Sounds like a contemporary version of a Hemingway novel...

    Thanks, Chris, for taking the trouble to sort out the link to Greg's Divine Matrix video. I've watched the first 1/2 hour or so and looks like good stuff but I'm going to have to watch this piece-meal - as you say, it is long. Talking about technical challenges, every time I try to use an emoji I get an error message when I try to post, but I have seen them used on other posts.

    I sometimes use the Synchronicity Oracle Falco created for augering...

    Looking at the art from the Temples and the selfica paintings, I notice a similarity in his script to that of the WingMakers.

    Did you pick up on that, Fred?

    Curiouser and curiouser!

    Did you experience any of the Selfica technology there? The chamber or little helmets or jewelry?

    I've always wanted to visit.

    Near Turin, right? Where "the shroud" was discovered...

    Ah, Italia. So many wonders and mysteries and KARMA. Glad Damanhur is there to balance out the Vatican.

    Somewhat.


  • fredburks's picture

    I didn't really notice the similarity between Falco's script and that of the WingMakers, though the interest in time travel, Falco coming from the year 2600 in the future, and more are similar. I did do what they call "the chair" there. It's not their time travel chair, which I don't think they show visitors, but another one completely encrusted in selfica where they subject you to strobe lights, wild music and more for an amazing seven-minute ride for about $60. I definitely felt something shift in me as a result of this ride, as did my girlfriend. Very cool! Damanhur is well worth a visit if you ever make it to that part of the world Enjoy!

    Finally got round to clicking the link at the start of this thread and followed it through to the Damanhur web pages. Absolutely fascinating. What an amazing community which has grown up out of nothing in less than 50 years! So many life-affirming aspects to the whole thing - seems odd though that there's only about 600 permanent residents in the community (unless I've mis-read or misinterpreted this?). I've only had a quick scan through the pages, quite intrigued by the selfica - not least what a weird word and concept - I find it difficult to hold the idea in my mind! Particularly interested in the health, wellbeing and healing implications. The idea that the Selfs somehow attune themselves to the wearer brings to mind the bit in the Anastasia saga about the pieces of wood from the ringing cedar developing and moulding themselves to the wearer with constant rubbing and handling.


    How cool is that Fred, that you've actually been there and seen these things? I was attracted to the Selfica jewellery - I seem to have this thing about improving my physical health! - but I think I'll just sleep on that idea for a while. What did you think about the Selfica technology in general?


  • fredburks's picture
    4 months ago

    Hey Julie, you're not all that far from Damanhur. I highly recommend a visit sometime. I have no doubt that the selfica have healing properties. Like many things, I also suspect that the more you believe it works, the more effective it is. And yes, there are about 600 residential members in the community. They are some of the most vibrant people I've met. Enjoy!

    Sounds like you've been on quite a journey with your health, Julie. I'm a vegetarian and eat almost 100% organic and thankfully blessed with robust healthy. I wish you all the best with you continuing journey.

    I may be naive, but (apart from using it as a marketing ploy) I can't understand why free access to the documentary has been presented on a time-limited basis when the subject matter and implications are potentially so radically life-changing. Additionally, in the space of 5 days since I signed up to watch I've received 6 emails encouraging me to buy into their 90 day plan. I can accept that some may appreciate guidance in changing their lifestyle, and be able and willing to pay, but it does seem like quite a hard sell when the implications of not taking action have been so dramatically presented!


    This makes me appreciate all the more when information and courses such as those presented by the PEERS network remain completely free and accessible to all. Thank you again, Fred, for this beautifully refreshing attitude to supporting transformation for all and remaining true to trusting in the inherent abundance of the Universe. Much love.

    Hi Julie, I very much agree that this hard sell is a turn-off. I know Jeffrey and have little doubt that a marketer convinced him to do this to get more funds to support his cause. I'm sure it will be effective, too, but I personally don't like tactics like this. And still, Jeffrey by far has done more than anyone else on the planet to inform the public of the dangers of GMOs.


  • juliemartyn's picture

    I do appreciate that all marketing is a form of manipulation but can also be seen as an opportunity for positive action so, as you say, nothing is pure black and white and everything needs to be considered on its own merits. This is where our individual perception comes into play.

I love the concepts of Random Acts of Kindness and Paying it Forward (I did have to explain to someone how this worked, saying he didn't need to pay me back, but instead consider paying it forward!)  It amazes me just how easily we can all bring a moment of joy or magic into somebody else's life with just a little bit of thought.  How cool it would be if we could have National Day of Kindness, and then why not just continue with it?  With loving thoughts for a kinder world :-)

I hope everyone here is doing well. 

 

I had been hearing about this book series about Anastasia called the Ringing Cedar Series.  I have read just over halfway through the first book and am very excited.  I was just wondering if anyone else has touched on this or tried any of the suggestions she has mentioned in the book.

 

  • fredburks's picture

    Wow, Nick! Thank for sharing so beautifully and vulnerably. And how great that you got such a clear message from the universe on your ayahuasca journey. May your path guide you beautifully to that place of breaking free.


    And Julie, thank so much for sharing the gems you got from "The Game." I resonate strongly with everything you wrote. Therein lie the keys to mastery. Take care and enjoy!


  • juliemartyn's picture
    5 months ago

    The first book in the Ringing Cedars series is a relatively short read. Described by reviewers as Mills & Boon meets Carlos Castenada or The Bible meets Star Trek ;-)


    The ideas put forward by Anastasia largely resonated with me, living in total balance and harmony with nature, effortlessly relying on nature for a complete life support system - quite an appealing idea. I like the idea about growing food that’s ideally suited to our own DNA make up, about the importance of honouring the bees who even in our own societies are critical for our food production – Einstein said something about humanity only being able to survive 4 years without the activity of bees! (I’ve come across the quote 3 times in different places over the last few weeks!)


    Interesting idea of no ritual being made of mealtimes, grazing on what comes to hand as it’s required. Such a big contrast with the way things are in our society where food and drink have such immense cultural and social ramifications. And that’s without touching on the issue of all the pervasive psychological issues we have relating to food.


    The timing of the story in 1994/95 is only around 25 years ago, yet I had the sense of it being a lot further back in time whilst reading it. The author and narrator, Vladimir, is not an attractive character – abrasive, aggressive, impatient, critical, selfish – a stark contrast with Anastasia’s way of being, and possibly chosen for that reason, so that we’ll perhaps be able to see more clearly his development as things progress.


    Apparently some readers have felt an emotional connection to the book straight away and been inspired to all sorts of poetic writings – that’s not me – although I am interested enough to want to see how this develops!


    Just thought I’d get this posted while things were still fresh in my mind – looking forward to what Nick has to say! And also Fred and Chris, if this sparks off any ideas?


  • fredburks's picture
    5 months ago

    I had a similar reaction, Julie. Cool stuff. A little unbelievable for me, but still a very entertaining story with a great message. I haven't read any further than the first book.


  • Starmonkey's picture
    5 months ago

    Yes. I feel it MORE important to get deeper in touch with nature. Not give in to fear and DOOM scenarios. Remember the language. The SILVER key...

    Those wanting to survive the shiftings need to have a strong connection with Earth. Virtually, there's nowhere else. Respect, honor, cherish.

    And PEOPLE aren't good to follow in that regard. The sheep are running and stumbling blindly toward whatever. The tension, the pressure, the absurdity make it easier to wake up, if you're paying attention.

    I also resonate with all of those bits you extracted.

    And with the birds and the bees. The bears and the trees. Always have liked animals and nature more than people. Simple. Easy. HONEST.

    Just finished Song of Susannah. Onward! To the Tower!

    ;)

    Also, the non-interference with free will policy...

    Both the WingMakers and the beings from WB Yeats' The Vision are trying to inspire creativity...

    Hmm?...

    Most systems or magnum opus practically destroy the creator in the process.

    Steve somehow made it through the DT.

    I have other examples I could dredge up.

    Jose Arguelles, Ian Xel Lungold, Falco, Philip K Dick, John Steinbeck, Ra Uru Hu...

    There's more.

    52 seems a magic number for those going early but with more of a full life.

    Hang in there.


  • Starmonkey's picture

    Funny. Was inspired to above by reading journal excerpts about Steve's process with the DT at the end of SoS. Just finished and last one was a faux article about him getting hit by a car and killed on my birthday in 1999 (6/20/99). He was 52.

    I'm fairly certain TIME will die before I hit that age. Six years and one month from now. 8/12/23 comes before that. Woo

Reiki seems to have a good reputation and following but I would describe my experience at best as very subtle in the physical dimension. It's difficult to sing the praises of Reiki when I have no personal experiential evidence of it having any effect at all, either on myself or others.

As part of my early efforts to become 'more spiritual' I undertook Reiki 'trainings' and workshops, having 3 attunements up to master practitioner level over around 18 months.

    And the limitations placed upon whatever beings, having to use WORDS, especially if they've never been human.

    And our HTSI (human time space illusion) and having to respond within that framework.

    That's why I'm going to drop down and explore for myself. We've come a long way, baby!

    But thanks to all those who have come before and have yet to come. Good luck to y'all in the 3D scenario!

    I found Seth Speaks to be one of the best books out there for explaining really big picture, meaning of life type stuff. I also read the Education of Oversoul Seven series and found it to be quite intriguing and well written. There is so much great material available to those who open to it. Enjoy!

    Getting back to where we started, Fred, what's your experience of Reiki?


  • fredburks's picture
    6 months ago

    I absolutely love energy work in all its forms. I haven't studied Reiki and have only received a few Reiki sessions that weren't very notable for me. I tend to not be so interested in the codified forms of energy work like Reiki, yet I know it really works for a lot of people and fully support that. My own understanding of such things for both practitioners and those receiving is that the more you trust and believe in it, the more it works. I personally love to play with energy, but in a much more free from way. And how are your travels going?

    We've got a property in France so after the ferry and a day's driving we generally don't do much traveling. I loved the place right from the start although my husband's still ambivalent. It's been the friction point for a lot of life lessons.

    After a lot of frustrating searching the property literally fell in our laps - although we almost dismissed it as being well over our budget.

    Truly blessed - and Suzie (our furry friend) loves it too - we know she's settled when she starts squirming on her back on the grass in the morning dew!

The first thing I read this morning was that Leonard Cohen has left this world.  A master of music has taken his place in a more Angelic realm.  I consider him genius. His music became more poignant as he aged, his voice rough - his words often tender. So I ask a blessing on his way and offer you these. In memoriam, Dear Mr. Cohen.

    Whatever force brought those kids together definitely had this in mind, they are just so tight. And there's only a few real bass vocalists out there,,Avi is one of them. I was downloading their videos and playing them for the kids in China,,,they were in awe, and begged for them every day. Of course they are the same kids that begged for Minecraft parodies too!

    If you didn't follow Kristyne's link on the other post, Cohen explained that the song was written as a sort of recognition, or acceptance, of a "less than perfect" world,, which I guess is like saying,,,"All is as it should be",,or,,"All is well",,,, kind of fitting for the Gspot

    Since I first came across Hallelujah many years ago I've been haunted by its beauty and appreciated the occasions when it popped up unbidden in my life. I was amazed and delighted when I found this song on Jai-Jagdeesh's 'Of Heaven and Earth' which I bought totally on a whim without having heard it, and which is now one of my favourite albums! Just a very small example of how God moves in mysterious ways ....

    Thanks for your wise thoughts, Chris. I also find it's much better to get clear on the work within before taking action out in the world. And like you, I still regularly go back and look at the WingMakers philosophy and am amazed at its continual clarity and profound depth. Enjoy!
