Revisiting The Past: When A Reunion Is A Healing

One day an email came from an old grammar school classmate. He sent me a picture of my grammar school class and asked me if I could help him identify some of the people in the picture. He was organizing a fifty-year class reunion. The truth was, we had never had a reunion before and my curiosity was peaked. I was able to help him with a few names and just the process of going over the pictures sucked me in. These were the kids I had spent eight years with, from first to eighth grades. They were the ones who I had been with in those early formative years and they were the only people in my life that had witnessed and experienced those school years where so much had happened.

As a looked over the class picture I was struck by several things. The size of the class was huge, fifty kids and one teacher, a hard core Catholic nun. These days that would be unacceptable but in the fifties it was status quo. The other thing I noticed was ethnicity: Italians, Irish, Hispanics, Armenians, Poles, and some Asians but only one African-American child. We were diversified in a Catholic school sort of way.

Ask for help and trust in spirit. Find the still point in the upheaval around you. Reset and adjust to accommodate whatever change you are invited to participate in at this time.

Shamanic Q & A – July 15, 2012

Question:

How much reality is there to the idea of the banking elite ruling the world presently? And what can we do at a non-violent, spiritual level to combat this? Is there a Gandhi in the wings to lead us forward? Are the new Avatars going to become know soon enough to shift this power play?

Answer:

Well there is a banking elite that controls the economies of the world, there is no question about that. However this is not a time when we can expect a savior in the form of one person to come to the rescue. That is a pattern of the past. Now it will be tens of thousands of people or more working cooperatively together to create a game change. There will be some big events (unknown yet) that will severely challenge the economic structures, greatly weakening the elite stranglehold on the world banking system. This vulnerability will open the door to transformation. It will take until about 2052 to accomplish this. That may seem like a long time but it is a 40 year blink of an eye in the big picture.

What is needed is the following. Each person must do whatever they can to erase their own personal fear of the future. This is the greatest obstacle that exists at this time. Each person needs to make themselves as flexible as possible to adapt to rapidly changing conditions that may cause them to be fearful or anxious temporarily. All will pass and be changed. Not to worry. No one person can be expected to change everything for others. Changes will be organic.  All that is occurring now with the Euro etc. is part of an overall pattern that is getting people to let go of faith in the old way of doing things. In the meantime life goes on. People in Greece and Spain etc are not dying. They are just anxious and uncertain about the future and made uncomfortable with the lack of jobs etc. It is not the end of the world. The younger souls will soon find that without viable markets they cannot make the kind of money they hope for. So the game will be restructured. Any attempt at trying to replace the old with the old will not work. They will learn this.
There are huge mostly invisible forces helping these changes. We are not alone but we humans are responsible for the actions here are on earth.

Full Moon Update 7-3-12

Full Moon is Tuesday, July 3, at 12:52 PM Mountain Daylight Time.

This is a serious and grounded time where spirit prompts you to go deeply into the foundations of your old perceptions and look at what needs clearing and adjusting. There is a possibility of unlocking the door to the dungeon where your freedom of perception has been imprisoned to at least get a glimpse of what is possible. You could get a glimpse of both the tremendous opportunity for expanded experience as well as the enormity of the task of extricating yourself from the limited world you have helped co create.

Shamanic Q & A – June 15, 2012

Question:

When does the essence enter the body? At conception? At birth?  

Answer:

As with all things human this varies. The essence never enters at conception because the newly conceived body is just too boring and primitive for the essence to be interested in being in it. The expansive essence is guiding the process of development like a cook preparing a meal, watching the temperature, adding ingredients, etc. But the cook is not in the cake or in the vegetables cooking on the stove. In fact the body is not developed enough to host the essence until the third trimester. Sometimes the essence begins to enter partially at six months but even then being in a womb is rather dull. Most of the time essence fully enters the body at the first breath at birth. Even then, sometimes the essence does not occupy the body and if it does not within a couple of days, the infant will suffer crib death because a body cannot live outside the womb without an essence in it.

Older souls can experience a great deal of frustration when occupying a body after birth because life as an infant can be so boring and limiting. The essence is ready to take on the world but mostly it is just a big round of nursing, pooping, and peeing. They sleep a lot to relieve the boredom and frustration at not being able to control their movements. With greater mastery over the body they are happier and more content. Some people think that old souls make good babies but often they don’t. Yogananda reported that he screamed during the first six months of his life. Imagine the frustration of that great soul stuck in a helpless infant’s body.

Much of the craziness about pro life and pro choice could be resolved if only people understood the true dynamics of when the essence enters the body.

Working With Physical Challenges

In August of 2011 Lena and I decided to take a much needed short local vacation after months of hard work. Both of us were in great need of being in the great outdoors and doing something physical after months of Power Path events, writing, and seeing clients. We ventured out to Canyon de Chelly in Arizona, rented horses from a Dine man, and spent the day exploring the Canyon. It was great fun but by the end of six or seven hours of riding I had an aching back due to one of the stirrups being a little shorter than the other. After spending the night we were off to visit a friend in Telluride, hiked around the mountains, and rode our mountain bikes around local trails. The following day I decided to take my bike up the lift to ride down one of the mountain bike trails back into town. I went up with my daughter Anna and her husband Aaron and they decided to take a much longer trail. I was still tired and hurting a bit from the horse so I chose a shorter trail. The signs and maps were a bit confusing and soon I realized I was on a very steep expert trail that I was not qualified to be on. Too late! On my hair raising way down I fell off my bike twice but managed to get to the bottom without further incident. After a couple days of more activity we headed back to town just in time to do one of our programs on our land. The first day I was leading a chi gong exercise when I felt a little crunch in my left knee along with a sharp pain. After about an hour my knee had swollen up like a grapefruit and I could effectively no longer get around. I thought, “OH NO! A torn meniscus. How can that be? All I was doing was a little chi gong”.
