Opening the aperture of our lens of perception....
"Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East" by Baird T. Spalding
Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East

About 20 years ago I read a set of books titled "Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East". The story told by Baird T. Spalding about his travels with a group of seekers was fascinating. Recently it was suggested that I read it again.

As I began to read it, I realized that this is masterful account of a life changing journey not just a fascinating story. It is a story that has the potential for opening up one's eyes, one's lens of perception, to the true potential of our being. As though I had never read these books before I began stepping into the wonder and amazement that this group of travelers experiences.

For me what has made these books even more potent is that I have run into the concepts (as I am certain that you have as well) that are presented (dematerialization, instant manifestation, Divine Oneness Within, and much more) in so many places over the last 20 years and even more so recently. At Damanhur in Italy part of their focus is dematerialization in the process of time travel. Stuart Wilde is teaching about seeing the Morphic Field so that you can dematerialize. The Shamanic and DNA work that is being taught by so many is about clearing our beliefs and patterns so that we can raise our vibratory rate in the process of being all we can be. All of the teachings that I have encountered have it one way or another been aimed at transcendence. Many of them talk about conscious dying. But few of them talk about shifting to a place of living as fully as these books do.

We are all aware of the many changes that are happening in our world. It is happening all around us in gross and subtle ways. We experience it, sometimes being aware enough to identify what is happening and sometimes not knowing what is next or how it will feel and look.

It is time for us to commit ourselves fully to going beyond the identification and perception that hold us in the sludge of consensual belief and perception. Oh yes, we have all been here and done that in so many ways. It is now time for the next step. Time to move into our alignment with the Divine Oneness Within and embrace the light and love of Universal Source that we are.

I highly recommend that you read this volume of work and find the places where it resonates. Find the places where it does not resonate and there is doubt and disbelief. Do the personal work that is necessary for you clear away that which is not serving you. Move toward being in alignment, expression and balanced relationship with your Divine Oneness Within (DOW).

I celebrate the Divine Oneness that you are!

Universal Relationships
Creating Sanctuary, Aliveness & Equal Energy in All Relationships including with Yourself
Balance Stones

The cornerstones of a healthy relationship with another are Sanctuary, Equal Energy and Aliveness. These are also the elements of a healthy relationship with ourselves. It is essential to any relationship to have a place where we feel we have a place to grow, be nourished, are safe, and can express ourselves. This is a place of Sanctuary. We want to feel we are honored and accepted for our ideas and who we are. This is Equal Energy. A healthy balanced relationship is a place where we feel excitement, passion, and movement. This is Aliveness. SEA (Sanctuary, Equal Energy, and Aliveness) is a peaceful and vibrant ocean of potential and joy filled with love and compassion. It is truly the place in relationship (with others and ourselves) that we all yearn for.

Joseph Campbell wrote in Myths of Light, "It has always been believed that the fundamental search of the human being is for the meaning of life, what we are actually searching for, is a feeling of aliveness.

Margaret Ruby wrote, "Our greatest challenge for any relationship is to preserve the uniqueness of each person and integrate them into the Matrix without repressing their integrity, individuality and aliveness."

We place so much emphasis on our relationships with others and rightly so, for they are important. Now is the time to resolve those relationships. As we do so we also have the opportunity to look at our relationship with ourselves and what is blocking us from our own Self Mastery and our DOW (Divine Oneness Within).

The Universal Relationship process addresses this in a powerful manner. This process uses archetypes to identify the pattern that we are expressing and then looks at the archetype of the issue or person that we are challenged by. Along the journey of discovery Ancestral and Matrix patterns are identified. After the release of the pattern a new Mythic Map and structure are infused into the system allowing for a new balance to manifest.

Whether you are challenged by a primary relationship, a family member, a working relationship, or an aspect of your own life the Universal Relationship process will assist you in releasing and repatterning it so that you can step into the SEA of joy within and without.

The Beauty and Power of Despacho Ceremony

In this class we will explore this healing tradition and learn how to create ten different types of despachos. As a class we will create two depachos. One will bea personal despacho for what is up for you at the moment and the second one will be a Full Moon despacho.

Poem: Hearts Wildly Open by Kali Heydel
Sacred Heart

Breathe love
into the cup
of your hands
and place your flaming
palms against your heart
Let this warmth
melt your fears
like wax before a fire
and watch the delicious
softening reveal
the wildflower
of your heart.
We must live
with Hearts Wide Open.
Hearts Wildly Open.

February 14: World Sound Healing Day World Sound Healing Day is a global event that YOU can partake in to assist Global Harmonization--the process of creating harmony and peace on the Earth. Your participation and co- creation of this event is both appreciated as well as being necessary for World Sound Healing Day to manifest. Every February 14th, people throughout the planet join together with their intentionalized sound to project a sonic valentine of love & appreciation to Gaia, our Earth Mother. We tone the heart sound "Ah" for a minimum of 5 minutes, and of course longer if your schedule permits. Often people will gather groups together and facilitate this toning experience in their respective communities. If possible, we ask that you take at least 5 minutes to tone at 12 noon Eastern time, and as always, we encourage the sounding of the "Ah" by yourself or with a group at any time during the course of the day.
