In the Dark, In the Light… Pluto’s Cave and Guidance!

PlutosCave2

Looking back down the tunnel via flashlight, from the end. It might be challenging to see at this size and resolution… but the orb that clearly shows itself in the upper right, under the opening, presented itself to me as an elemental. What’s REALLY cool about this picture is in the upper right, OVER the doorway… there’s an outline of pretty much the upper half of a being showing it’s face… and I see several wispy others in here… can you?

I’ve been making a trip at LEAST once yearly to Mount Shasta since 2012; it’s now tied to me teaching the Instructor’s class of Trinity Energy Progression (for more on some of the reasoning for that, see the Trinity Website)

That’s my guidance.

Mount Shasta is… another world, another dimension entirely, if you allow it to be! I’ve written about it before (see the posts from my first trip – in this life – on my original Website, Road to Awakening, from 2012: Getting Lost to Find Our Way… (Mount Shasta Tales, Part One) and Journey Reflections from the Mountain (Mount Shasta Tales, Part Two).

So, here I am, on my yearly excursion, here a few days before the class joins me. Again… guidance. I just knew it was important to be here alone up front, even if I didn’t know why, until a few weeks ago.

There’s been so much about accepting, embracing, and integrating the darkness, remembering it as part of the light; so when I was suddenly getting loud and clear that it was important for me to go to Pluto’s Cave – a mile-long, 190,000-year-old lava tube north of the mountain – I mistakenly believed it was in relation that. Sorta, kinda… not really.

Many believe this is one of the doorways opening into the underworld civilizations of Agartha and Telos. THAT’S what I was missing!

All I know was that my guidance was to GO. I read up on getting there, on recommended preparations (bring/wear a flashlight with extra batteries, good hiking/climbing shoes, a sweatshirt, water, and a partner). However, I was getting to just go… on my own. So… I trusted.

I tried getting there earlier; there were delays and redirects. I found the parking lot to the trail to the cave, and pulled in… just at the same time another group had just gotten there. I looked over… and there were twelve earthy, vibrant young adults in their late teens and MAYBE early twenties; and one man in my age group, maybe older. I thought, “Wasn’t I supposed to do this alone?” My answer, loud and clear: “This is who you’re to be with.” I hesitated at first, and asked, “Really?” Yes, absolutely… I felt it.

I admit, at first I was a bit standoffish, because in anticipation that I’d be alone, my first planned order of business was biological. I actually booked past the group, onto the trail, and instead of taking the turnoff to the cave… I continued on, until I’d seen they’d gone ahead… and, well… took care of business! (I know, TMI, right? There will be a little tidbit later about why I’m sharing this here.)

When I got up and turned around, I made my way to the caves. It took me a few extra twists and turns (basically it’s in a pretty remote, desert area), but I found it. As I walked up, I heard voices that sounded very obviously like the opening of a spiritual ceremony. As I approached, I recognized the older man was sort of a guide to the group. He looked up at me, and asked if I’d like to join them… to which I replied, “Of COURSE! We’re here together… it was obviously arranged, so I might as well!” Then someone in the group commented about “there’s the 13th person”… and that was that; I was smudged and welcomed! The leader talked about how the spirit of the owl guards this cave, and he pointed out an owl’s nest high in the rocks at the entrance. He told us that sometimes groups get blessed with the actual presence of the owl.

We began our journey in through the beginning, where there are a holes in the ceiling from collapses, providing beautiful beams of light in the contrast to the dark. As we walked toward the first one… a big, beautiful owl soared quietly over us! After we moved past the opening… it flew by again! Such magnificence!

Mostly, we were all in awe of the beauty and energy of the tunnel itself. It was definitely a rocky slope, up and down… and the deeper we got, the blacker it got. Yet, it felt nourishing, embracing… and I could feel the presence of many in the “non-physical” along with us! Also, what I often hear in high vibration places, I just knew, in my consciousness:  “It’s a little bit rough to discourage those who aren’t truly guided or ready…”

We pressed on, and I spoke with many in short spurts as we proceeded in the dark (save the single beams of the flashlights). I spoke quite a bit with the leader, nicknamed Bobbles (not sure of the spelling, but you get the idea). He started by asking me, “So what brings you here?” My answer: “Guidance.” He nodded, and said, “Good enough!” We talked about Mt. Shasta (he’s a recent transplant), about the synchronicity of us arriving together… and my half-joke was, “Yes… but I’ve learned to just allow it to happen here at Shasta… because it’s such an energetic home! I’ve never gone anyplace else where it’s so prevalent that I run in to people, we recognize each other (even though we haven’t previously met in this life), and can just say, “Hey!! Wow, it’s been LIFETIMES since we’ve seen each other… and know that it’s true!” That got a laugh of understanding from most of the group.

Bobbles said he’d intended to invite me to join them right in the parking lot, but I hurried off, and he figured I wanted to be alone… and then, when I veered off, he figured I wasn’t “taking that path.” I laughed… and told him why… and he laughed, too, and thanked me for telling him, because he’d been pretty sure I was to join them.

As we progressed in, something in me… changed. Energetically, whatever was flowing through me increased dramatically, the further we progressed into the cave. Bigger and bigger… the only thing that kept me focused in the 3D was climbing up and down somewhat steep inclines and declines, on mostly BIG rocks, in complete darkness with exception of the beams of the flashlights. I also noticed that I was unusually out of breath, and sweatier than I would typically be for this kind of climb. However, I knew somehow it was completely energetic.

About 2/3 of the way in, we got to quite an opening, and Bobbles told everyone present to find a rock for a meditation. He waited until everyone was seated, and then we all turned off our lights. Complete darkness!!!

I barely had time to “tune in”… when everything amped up energetically EVEN MORE for me… and I suddenly REMEMBERED… the “seed.”

pyramidcrystalLet me back up a moment: A month ago, I took the Trinity instructors on a retreat on an island off the southern coast of NC; a place where I had been shown there is a vortex off the end of the southeast tip… and in that vortex was the energetic presence of what I call a Lemurian crystal chamber, which is a huge crystal pyramid I’ve seen “coming up from the oceans” for several years now. We all connected with the pyramid; its presence became stronger and stronger through our energetic work throughout the weekend. The culmination of the group and the weekend was all of us had agreed to come together to energetically “activate” this particular pyramid, “when the time was right.” And so it was! In the process, I also gained remembrance – and strongly/clearly reminded – that I am energetically the Guardian of that pyramid. When the group of us activated it, I assumed some sort of energetic “seed” into my being; I understood immediately that it was to be “planted” when I came to Mt. Shasta. At the time, I didn’t know (remember) the “where” or “when”… just that I was to do that.

I’d forgotten all about it.

When we were sitting there, I remembered hearing about being the Guardian of that pyramid, and getting “the seed.” And at that moment, I knew undoubtedly that as my part of this whole synchronistic event, I was there to “plant and activate the seed”… and receive something else, which I don’t yet consciously remember. However, it was JUST as BIG! And so I just sat in my Light… and I allowed it to happen.

I could see something spectacular happening, and simultaneously, I saw how everything had come together, so perfect, with this group, this guide, to be there in THAT moment! In the energetic hugeness of seeing that, I can’t tell you when in the timeline that Bobbles talked about how much work he and others had done to energetically clear the tunnel and get it “up to par”… and that somewhere in there, he’d understood that he is now the Guardian of the tunnel/cave! Guardian of that pyramid; Guardian of that tunnel/cave. The agreement we’d had was crystal clear – that he would be there to assist me in getting in to the point that was the most advantageous to do what I’d volunteered to do – because had I truly been alone, I’m not sure I would have ventured that far in on my own.

I was overwhelmed with the hugeness, as I saw a LOT that I didn’t consciously understand, but that my heart absolutely did. Quietly weeping in joy and gratitude, and being overwhelmed in the beauty of it, Bobbles rang a bell in the darkness several times. Moments after that, the entire group spontaneously began to tone; it was definitely otherworldly, and I knew and could see fully in that moment that those young adults in the group – pretty much the same age as my oldest daughter – are incarnate with a heavy piece of consciousness IN those higher dimension locations… because I know them THERE. The toning came from the higher dimensions… and it just got bigger and bigger.

After awhile, we were instructed to turn our lights back on, and we proceeded then to the end of the main tunnel. I could feel something just changing dramatically and it was affecting me physically; I asked if it was highest and best for me to continue to the end, and I basically understand at that point, it didn’t matter either way.

So i went to the end; we stayed there for awhile and then headed back.

I noticed increasing discomfort in my body; somewhere in there it started to feel leaden… and like I said, this was actually quite a moderate kind of hike that I’m typically very comfortable taking. I’d stopped for regular water breaks, and had been well nourished before I’d gotten there. This was different… and it grew and grew. I heard some pieces of my consciousness, pieces of my “higher memory,” saying, “We can let go of the physical body now…” and I said to them, in a commanding way, from an even higher place, “NO… CONTINUE ON. ALLOW, ACCEPT, EXPAND, ASSIMILATE…WE’RE DOING THIS DIFFERENTLY NOW!” And in another moment of great realization, I knew that the young adults in the group – these beautiful, gentle lights – had agreed to be there with me to HELP KEEP ME IN THE BODY, in support. Just when it would start getting unbearable, one of them would catch up (or vice versa), and would chat with me. At some point, my flashlight batteries went dead; as I said something to that affect and started digging in my backpack for my spare batteries, someone right behind me stopped and asked, “Do you need a light to help?” And then we proceeded together for awhile. One of them asked me, “So, you just came down here to do this by yourself?” My answer: “I was just guided to come.” A hesitation, and then, “Cool!”

As we got to back to the opening, I realized the tremendous discomfort I felt was such huge resistance at some levels of me, in keeping a physical body, AT THAT MOMENT. There was a tremendous fight going on in my consciousness! I would say I felt like I was going to throw up… but it was really the equivalent of feeling like I was going to throw up and my body was going to just dissolve.

So I just sat on a rock and breathed. I focused on my light, my wholeness, the Oneness… infinite flow, regardless of a physical body or not. And I felt… different.

After I thanked everyone and left, it still took me several hours of continuous conscious processing before I could function “in/with a physical body again” – I forced myself to eat a small amount of fruit, because I had to remind myself what that felt like to eat, I forced myself to drink water, for the same reason. I came back to the house where I’m renting while I’m here… just sat on the couch in the central meditation room… and just allowed.

And here I sit… and I will soon sleep, for tomorrow’s another adventure.

A side note: Something that stood out to me as indicative of whatever the multiple things the group did while we were in there (because it was everyone there with a different yet complementary purpose, even if not in conscious remembrance of it). When we went in to the cave, the sun was, in its typical fashion, out. When we returned to the mouth of the cave, it was raining… it stopped again briefly while we were outside, and as I sit here typing this, it’s raining again, more of a constant rain. Did we have an affect in opening this drought-ridden area? I know we were at least a PIECE of that!  😉

P.S. HUGE THANKS to Baubles… to everyone there… it was great seeing you “in 3D” again! Namaste!

Time for the “L” Word… (Ready for REAL Progression?)

Lucifer, that is. Yep… that’s right. “He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named,” I guess some would say (outside of the Harry Potter world, LOL)… ESPECIALLY in spiritual circles!

Did that make you squirm? It’s DEFINITELY something to look at, then…

It’s quite an interesting observation that so, so many who consider themselves “lightworkers” never, ever, EVER align or connect themselves in any way to what we’ve created as the personification of darkness. So many claim to have ALWAYS been a “lightworker,” ALWAYS helped other people, ALWAYS been a healer. in ALL of their many, many lives…  you get the idea.

Let me interject here, first, on this topic alone… because I’m calling it. Not so!

It’s actually rather limiting (and simply convenient to the judgement-based ego) to only ever want to look at the “light” side of ourselves. We did, as the Divine expressing ourselves individually, create the perception of separation. What we consider darkness is simply different levels of separation; the darker something is considered, the more based in separation the energy of it is. All of the energies of separation – also, all of the energies and emotions of the ego – are also a part of what we consider the darkness. Resistance, fear, anxiety, regret, resentment, guilt, doubt, sorrow, pain, anger/rage, shame… anything that has anything but the complete energy of Oneness is based in separation. And, the more extreme, the more “dark” we consider it. So the “darkness” and every part of those emotions/energies… are one and the same. And we’ve carried them out in every which way, whether a little or a lot.

It’s so, so easy for us to say, “I’m the embodiment of _______” – whether it’s the Divine Mother, Archangel Raphael, Ascended Master St. Germain (or countless others) – and in that, we typically stop the searching for our experience. However, these are also masks behind which we hide… even the brightest, most enlightened individuals in existence. Because, by the way… it is my understanding that anything with an individual identity has an ego… and it is also my understanding that the ego was created to explore individuality and separation.

Why would we have created an entire existence of the perception of separation – the infinite, Divine beings that we are – without exploring it to all depths, all possibilities?

We’ve ALL explored, ALL of it.

Our traditional stance on “the battle of good vs. evil,” in the energy of fighting/resistance – simply creates more separation… and darkness… and simply perpetuates its existence. It’s time to remember that in the perception of separation that we created, we created the darkness, and it’s that part of ourselves (often called Shadow Work in spiritual circles) that it’s most, MOST important to look at straight on, accept… and LOVE, if we’re really ready to dissolve it once and for all.

Enter Lucifer. Or, rather, as I call him as I’ve experienced, Archangel Lucifer.

My active discovery, acceptance, and discussion of this topic – and the representation of this persona – started in a really, really unexpected way. Years ago, I was listening to a series of guided meditations that were put out by a group of lightworkers focused on helping all raise the vibration of the Earth for this “next phase.” I resonated with some of their meditations… I didn’t with some others. They had one called “The Resolution of Darkness”, and my guidance was to go through that particular one. So, I put my headphones on… and the guiding of the meditation took the participant to a cave, in which there was a burdened archangel in the darkness; one who had volunteered to take on the personification of the darkness, to be the reminder of what we have ALL created within ourselves, in creating ourselves. It’s been a huge job… and he was tired. The guided meditation went on – surprisingly, at the time – to thank Archangel Lucifer for taking on that role, and to release him of this duty, to bask in the light again.

Even more surprisingly – midway through this, I started sobbing uncontrollably. I felt this down to my very core… the gratitude, the love, and the wonderment of taking on the externalization of that which we have conveniently repressed away inside of ourselves.

What a healing that was!

Fast forward, a few years later, after I had been gifted with the remembrance of this amazing practice of Trinity Energy Progression™ – coming back to the remembrance of our Divine Self – to pass on and help with the resolution of duality, separation, and externalization of the Divine. This was well underway. I was contentedly on my way to acupuncture one morning, looking forward to my “out there” time on the table. I was sitting at a traffic light on the way to my acupuncturist’s office, when I heard the voice of my Higher Self say to me, “Call upon Archangel Lucifer, and ask to do a Trinity session with him.”

My first response to that was, “Say, WHAT?”

I listened for more… but all I heard was the repeat of the pretty solid direction from the Higher Consciousness. So, I tried it on for size – and then “put it on the shelf” as I continued on.  I tried to just let that go.

When I was on the acupuncture table, on my “way out” (trying to ignore the request), the voice came in even louder and more insistent.

And so I did.

I remember asking permission, asking if we could do such a session in Divine Consciousness. And, though I felt what for lack of a better word felt like a little hesitation, I did get acquiescence. I remember the session… and the melding… and it was the equivalent of feeling like I was literally weighed down with tons of weights underneath craggy, hard, cold rock. And yet, once we were “there,” even with the heaviness, we became one in the light… and as the light was “turned up,” it felt like an innumerable number of rivers of light started flowing through the rock, first in little veins, and then expanding throughout, even if it was still a bit heavy. The amazing part: At the end of this, when I was guided to stop, I felt a wave of gratitude, coming from and to me!

Shortly after this experience, I was guided to do the same a number of times, and each time, it became easier and easier, brighter and brighter.

At some point, I started “seeing” Archangel Lucifer in “light form” on occasion. In fact, there have been a handful of times that this persona has shown himself to me – in his light form – in the middle of a session, typically when a client if ready, willing, and able to look at and finally embrace/love even the darkest depths of themselves. He has explained in these sessions the purpose of the creation of “the darkness,” and separation – and how with that, we’ve created feelings, textures, colors (like the prism), everything we’ve loved experiencing through this existence. To me, he has also become the representation of the acceptance of the whole – the Oneness – regardless of what that looks like. ALL is within the Light; ALL is part of the Divine.

I know some of the most light-emanating individuals who have discovered in their self-focused development a very personal, historical relationship with Lucifer (from very different levels of consciousness)… and, though typically starting out as a VERY heavy realization, it has allowed them the core of some of their MOST accelerated spiritual growth!

melektauus

Melek Ta’us, the Peacock Angel

If we look around, there are some interesting personifications of the resolution of the darkness. Not too long ago, in discussing this experience in a class I was teaching, I was provided with a reminder of the persona of Melek Ta’us (pictured here, with a name translated as the “Peacock Angel”); a prominent deity of the Yazidi pantheon. He is considered to be the redeemed/forgiven Lucifer.The story is that he cried and collected his tears for 7,000 years, and the tears were used to douse the fires of hell.

There is SO much more to share here… when you look closely throughout history, we have embedded within much of our mythology (including that within all belief systems) hints that this vital remembrance is crucial to our progresion, ascension… or whatever you want to call it. I’ll save that discussion for another day…

The point is this: As in Harry Potter… the fear of anything ebbs when we look at it and accept it straight on. Say the name out loud; remember that Archangel Lucifer is actually “He Who MUST Be Named” – accepting the whole of ourselves – as a part of our ascension, and  include just as much gratitude for this persona in the collection of those we’ve created for the whole of this experience! If there’s resistance and judgment on that… well, then you know what’s to be focused on within YOU. Because, when we begin to REALLY “walk the walk,” and TRULY live in the remembrance that we are all One, we are ALL Light and love – even the darkest parts of us and what we’ve created – we remember that we’re ALL just as connected with and a part of Lucifer as with Jeshua or any of the other personifications of pure, Divine Consciousness… and it’s time for us to remember, accept, and love that WHOLE within ourselves, so we can “game up”!

 

Take Two: SHOOTING through the door to an expanded reality on Pilot Mountain!

Share

Lots of faces... since we didn't get much in pics (it obviously wasn't what we needed that day), these are pics from my 1st trip.

My second trip to Pilot Mountain was scheduled (read about the first trip in my previous post) right on the heels of finishing a 3-day class in Advanced Theta Healing. Needless to say, I was wide open to the Universe, that’s for sure! Throughout the weekend, had repeatedly questioned whether or not I’d really feel like going on the jaunt with my friend Phran after I was finished. I wanted to go, but fully knew how tired I typically am at the end of 3 solid days of energy and clearing work!

Midway through Saturday, in Theta mode, I asked if I should really go on this trip; without hesitation, and clear as day, I heard back YES! When I asked why, the response was, “Because NOW is the time for you to go.” (Nothing like having Creator say, “Because I said so!”)

So, I guess that set up my expectations!

The Water…
The Air (and I guess a little bit of Fire, too!)…
Post Scripts (Follow-up Notes and Explanations)

On the Road Again!
We drove up on Sunday evening; on Monday, we got up and were ready to go early in the morning. In getting ready, I realized something odd – the night before, when I’d gone to bed, my phone had been just about fully charged, so I hadn’t bothered to pull out my charger plug. However, in the morning, it was pretty much completely dead; pretty odd, since I’d turned the phone off altogether! I figured I could at least get a few hours of charging in before we left, but when I went into my bag, I couldn’t find the charger. I searched and searched – even went out to the car – because I remembered wrapping the charger cord up and packing it the night before, but it wasn’t there. Bummer, I thought – I was going to take pictures with it! After I’d been searching for 5 minutes or so, in my head I heard, “No pictures or phones today.” So I thought, “Well, OK, then.” I told Phran, and she had her digital camera with her, but she decided to bring it, anyway.

It was a brisk morning – when we left for breakfast, it was still in the 30s. However, by the time we got to the parking point on the mountain, it was about 40 – not too bad! Plus, the temperature was expected to go up to the 60s during the day, and we knew that once we started moving, we’d warm up.

Part of a BIG face… (again, from my previous trip)

So we went up to Little Pinnacle first, and then completed the trek to the Big Pinnacle – and that’s where the fun began!

The Voice…
When we found first rock face area we decided to climb, I had to laugh – when I’d been there several weeks before with the family, I really hadn’t seen clear climbing patterns to get to some of the shelf areas. Yet, as I walked up this time, it was like there were clear and obvious footholds and steps to the ledge for us! So, we climbed up, and then I could suddenly feel a vibration. I had the urge to put my hand on the rock, and when I did, the vibration surged through my body, and then all I wanted to do was put my cheek on the rock and, for lack of a better explanation, give the mountain a hug! So I did rest my cheek on the rock, and closed my eyes, and the most peculiar thing happened: I felt like I was actually getting a hug from the mountain! Since it was so chilly, I’d fully expected the rock to just feel hard and cold to my cheek and touch; however, I felt nothing but the inner warmth of being loved. How strange, I thought! Something so hard and stark, yet so comforting and nurturing! I opened my eyes to see Phran actually doing the same thing… and from the look on her face, realized it wasn’t just me who could feel that. Suddenly, in my head, I heard, “This is just the beginning; do not doubt yourself, but step with faith.” I told Phran what I’d heard; at the same time, she was getting “Just BE.” (Note: We were thinking these comments were simply literal – because we’d been talking about getting down the rocks, then I got the “Step with faith” statement – but now I get it… much more to it than that! The same goes for the “Just BE” statement to Phran – such simple statements, yet so significant!)

It wasn’t too long afterward that we both felt like it was time to move on to our next destination around the Big Pinnacle… wherever that was going to be. Soon we came to another area that looked primed to climb… so we did, again finding “steps” in the rock to make our ascent pretty simple, even though on first glance, it would seem otherwise!>

This second stop was life-changing.

The Earth…
Phran told me she was getting we were supposed to stand at this particular shelf that we hadn’t even been able to see from the trail; it showed up to us  as we were climbing to another point we’d originally been attracted to. So, we climbed over, and she pointed for me to sit at one particular spot (so she was guided). She was quiet for a moment (listening), then said, “The student surpasses the teacher; the student is the one to receive…”

Side note…in case you missed it in the previous post, Phran is the fabulous soul who has helped me out since Day One of what I call my “Grand Awakening,” in 2009; not only has she been a great source of information and support – and has become a good friend – but as a Reiki Master, she’s the one who introduced me to focused energy work through teaching me Reiki, I and II so far. I remember her saying that and thinking, “I doubt surpassing is the right word… she’s been doing this for YEARS!” See her Website about some of the awesome work she does!

I just looked at her blankly for a moment, and she said, “I’m just supposed to be the antennae here; you’re supposed to get the message.” She held out her hand. “Chakra to chakra to connect…” I took her hand and closed my eyes.

Immediately, the MOST AMAZING feeling came over me. Without really having the words to describe it, it was the BIGGEST feeling I’ve ever felt! If you’ve seen the movie Hook, with Robin Williams (with Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell, plus an all-star cast), there’s a moment when Tinkerbell blows up to be a full-sized person; she just looks incredulous for a few moments, then says, “…this is the BIGGEST thought I’ve ever had…”  It was a lot like that… and that thought actually popped into my head for a moment, before I really sank in to the experience.

What I “saw” when I was being shown Awakening energy points around us (I doctored a pic so you could see it!)

It was like my whole being was plugged in… not just to the mountain, but also the entire valley around it! I didn’t just hear or see a message; I became A PART of it!!! I could feel and hear the consciousness, but I could also FEEL the rock as a part of me; I could feel the trees growing from me, but I also felt like my heart was beating AS Mother Earth, all at the same time. To say it was HUGE doesn’t even begin to cover it!!

At the same time, before one word started coming to me, I could see this column of violet light beaming down on Phran and me while we were standing there.

The consciousness from the mountain started showing me the movements of the earth, the ground moving, the faces in the mountain, the consciousness Awakening inside of the Earth, and then also the plants and trees, the dirt, the animals, and the other beings (devas, I fleetingly thought). I didn’t just see or feel them separately – I BECAME all of them at the same time, as if each part were my heart, my leg, my arm, my finger! I could simultaneously feel me on that ledge, but then I could also feel vague thoughts and feelings as all of those parts… one big, complex and wondrous network!

All of this came to me before one word popped into my head… but it wasn’t long until I heard a majestic but soothing voice, as well! As I’ve explained it since, it was the MOST balanced feeling of masculine and feminine that  I’ve ever experienced, and it was just beautiful (though that word really doesn’t reach the magnitude of how I felt).

“We are all waking up again…not just parts of us, but all of the Earth…

…here I could suddenly see energy points/ley points shooting up to/from the sky, and then I WAS up in the sky, looking down on the entire Southeast, at one of what I knew was many circles of those energy points…

“… those who survive and succeed will again remember how to use the Magic of the Earth; because together, as One, we are _________.”

…there was a concept I could understand, but there was no word I could summon for it – it was the idea of being “more powerful as an integrated entity than we are separate” – powerful isn’t quite the right word, though… somewhere to the next level? It actually added a piece to the puzzle that I hadn’t previously understood… and for the first time, I could FEEL Oneness…

“Like the birds, who fly by the natural mastery and integration of their wings working with and through the air currents…it is time to fly.”

…I was shown an eagle and a hawk flying together…

“Take this to others; all who remember must teach others about this. The time has come.”

I was so struck by the HUGENESS I was feeling that I was simultaneously processing everything all at once, and I just couldn’t speak much after that. However, at the end of the part about the birds, I suddenly could see two more beams of golden light beam down diagonally onto us, in conjunction with the violet beam that I continued to sense coming from directly above. I told Phran that we were supposed to stand there until the beam was broken, and so we did; but I knew exactly when we were done getting zapped with whatever it was, as did Phran, because we both opened our eyes and broke the connection at the same time.

I told Phran, “We’re done here. I heard, ‘On to your next point.'” She nodded brightly and said, “Yep. Heard that, too!” We just looked at each other for a moment, and I shared some of the visuals I hadn’t shared while they were coming in… I’d had to have them assimilate first! She was marveling at the energy she said she’d felt coursing through her, and how she now understood what she had heard during our first stop: “Just BE.” She was a conduit; she helped “jump start” the receiver and amplify the energy (which, by the way, is phenomenal and powerful in energy healing – and explains about how strong her abilities are in healing altogether)… and was very happy to get that message. I laughed, because I thought about how much of a conduit she’d been in getting me actively started in this world to begin with. How appropriate! “Rabbit ears!” I said to her… thinking of the old TV sets we’d had as a kid.

We realized it was time to move on; it was like we could feel the mountain waiting.

An example of this part of the Big Pinnacle… see how smooth the lines get, and the horizontal ridges. It’s amazing to think about how long ago this mountain would have been up against the ocean!!

The Water…
As we continued our way around Big Pinnacle, we suddenly came to a different feel to the rock altogether. Wavy, much smoother, and watery… we both put our hands on this rock, and could feel… the ocean. I could immediately feel the immensity of it, and it was like I was looking up from beneath the depths out into the sunlight sky, because I could see a large, whale-like creature swimming over me.<

I didn’t even realize I’d closed my eyes, until I heard Phran laugh with glee, and opened them up again. “We were dolphin-like creatures here, very intelligent, and chose to live in the water! How COOL!” I laughed, and then told her what I’d seen.

We got the message that this was another “spot,” so we did the same thing as before; both of us semi-sat on the rock next to each other, and she held out her hand to “connect.” I closed my eyes, and immediately, again I had this great, IMMENSE feeling – but this time, it was of the ocean. I couldn’t just feel the power of it; the power of the water was INSIDE of me.

“Child of Mu…you need to look for your information in the right place…”

…That initial comment jolted me, as I’ve had quite the experience this year recalling an IMPORTANT past life in Lemuria – aka “Mu” – yet something else in which Phran had assisted via hypnotherapy for a past life regression, when I’d tried for several months to get beyond the cocoon I’d wrapped around the memory of that lifetime… more on that one of these days! Anyway, I’ve yet to understand that comment on getting my information… I’m sure I will; it just hasn’t come to me yet.

In the meantime, I was suddenly shown a lot of mathematical and geometrical equations that I didn’t quite understand, drawn in the air, showing relation to geography; like I knew what they were, but their meaning was just beyond my grasp. I explained that to Phran before I continued…

“…the waters will rise again…”

…Below me, I could see water rising up from the valley, from out of the ground. Odd, I thought – especially since we were several hours from the nearest shoreline!

The water soon filled the entire valley, and stopped not too far below where we were standing. In my mind, I was looking down, into the turquoise water, and I saw a golden, circular orb deep down water that was glowing and emanating sparkly golden rays away from itself, out into the water surrounding it, and it had a pinkish “aura”, for lack of a better explanation… that confused me, as I had no idea what it could be. However, I somehow knew that I was supposed to be paying attention to it…

I spoke some of the words I heard, but also told Phran I didn’t understand some of what I was being told. I also told her about the golden circular “thing” that was glowing in the water. (See Post-Script at the bottom of this page to see subsequent information I’ve found in regards to the golden orb I saw here…)

Then, while we were still connected, the MOST BIZARRE thing happened!

The actual air around us at the time was dead still; I could even feel the sun hitting us, against the rock. Suddenly, I felt like I was part of a big, huge wave, welling up and coming in from my right… and just as suddenly as I could feel the wave start coming in, the WIND picked up dramatically to my right, and rustled through the leaves in the trees, in a WAVE, up the mountain towards us. In fact, it was so strong that as it approached from the right, it startled me out of “the zone” into opening my eyes (to make sure a wave wasn’t actually coming – it was that real!)… and it STOPPED DEAD, right in front of us. I broke out of it and asked Phran, “Did you feel that? Did you hear it?” And she said, “Yes… the leaves rustling in a wave up the mountain, and it stopped dead right in front of us!”

Wow. It was immense.

I knew there was something I needed to get from that, but again, I couldn’t quite grasp it yet. I just stored it away for later use, as I usually do – I’ve found that days, weeks, and even months later, I’ll learn something that will allow a bunch of unused pieces to the jigsaw to fit together perfectly. It’s a really, really good reason to journal!!! (See the Post-Script section for more information about “the wave” and what happened later…)

Shortly after that, it was again time to move on.

The Air (and I guess a little bit of Fire, too)…
This was our final resting stop up on Big Pinnacle. Again, we stopped and looked up the column of rocks, and where we’d originally thought we wouldn’t be able to go very far, again, the “steps” came easily, and we actually found a great place… about 50 feet from the very top! We found a thin ledge, and just sat down to soak it all in.

Something similar to what we saw, sitting on the ledge.

An interesting thing to note: Just before we stopped at that ledge, while we’d been climbing and stopped on the way at a nice overlook, I had been standing there talking to Phran, I noticed a ladybug on my hand. I hadn’t noticed one insect since we’d been there, and I realized that just as I was thinking how odd it was to suddenly see it. Then, as we were talking for a few more minutes, I suddenly saw two more. When we continued on minutes later and found that ledge, it wasn’t very long before I suddenly realized that more than a dozen ladybugs again appeared, where we were sitting. I decided to make a mental note of that, and check my Animal Speak book when I got home. (See the Post Script section below for the message that ladybugs have for us…)

When we sat down, I didn’t get the feeling there was any message to bring in there; just that we were supposed to sit there and… for lack of a better word, charge. I could feel the sun indirectly slanting in towards us on that spot, and I vaguely noted that it felt much, much warmer than it should’ve felt, knowing the temperature of the day. In my head, I could see the mountain encased in a bubble of sorts – a bubble of energy – and we were inside of that bubble. We had some water and fruit; then I sat back, up against the rock, leaned my head back, and closed my eyes. I think Phran did the same next to me, because we were just quiet for quite awhile. Several times, we heard people coming up the trail beneath us, and I would open my eyes and watch them; only once did anyone even notice we were up there, and that was only because their dog  had sensed us, stopped, and looked up, causing the owners to look up, too. When I closed my eyes, I truly felt encased inside the warm, embryonic, loving bubble of energy on the mountain; in fact, I could see the energy swirling past us, in front of us, in a counterclockwise direction. At one point, in my mind’s eye, I could see a huge bird – resembling a huge phoenix – flying in the “bubble” too, around the Pinnacle; I could feel the shadow, and then it would be gone… and then a few minutes later, I’d feel it again, for it to continue on, etc. I felt like we were in a completely different reality, just on the other side of a veil from our 3D Earth; I felt even more so when people would come by, stop and look up, but never see us.

At some point, I opened my eyes, and my head was tilted up towards the sky. When I did that, I suddenly realized that there were about a half dozen hawks right above us, circling lazily in the geothermal currents. They were so close that we could really see them just ride the current, circle up, down, and back around again.

These are the kinds of birds we saw in flight, right over our heads, just under their nests - the red hawk and the raven.

I brought that up to Phran, and we just sat there and watched; at some point, by watching their flight pattern, we realized that we were almost directly beneath their nesting place! I could feel the beautiful, graceful hawks noting our presence there, but they didn’t seemed alarmed by our presence at all; we were simply “inside” the bubble. (See the Post Script section below for the message that hawks have for us…)

A little further off (not too far), there were some other birds that were large and playing in the air currents in the same fashion as the hawks; we couldn’t quite figure out what they were. I originally thought they were some sort of vulture, but that didn’t feel right; they weren’t quite large enough. Later on, after I was home, I found out that ravens nest there at Pilot Mountain, too, and another light lit up – yep, that’s what they were! (See the Post Script section below for the message that ravens have for us…)

Remember earlier on, in this post, when I said I’d gotten the message back at the hotel that we weren’t supposed to have phones or cameras on this trip? Well, as I said, Phran had brought her digital camera. She’d gotten a few pictures in the beginning of the climb, but here’s the funniest part: While we were sitting up there, on that ledge, probably 50 feet under the hawks nest, with easily a half dozen hawks circling around continuously, Phran tried 4 or 5 times to take a picture – every single one of the pictures she took came out with a beautiful, blank sky!! We laughed about that – I said, “I TOLD you we weren’t supposed to take any pictures!” She replied, “Yep; and what did I hear when we got here? ‘Just BE.’ Well, I tried, anyway…”

It was at some point that a foreign odor suddenly filled my senses; a fresh, lovely smell, but one I’d never sensed before. There was no one around right then besides us, and I could already distinctly smell the pines around, and the crisp, clean air…but this was completely different. I asked Phran if she smelled it; she didn’t (which surprised me!). It came only from my right, in a space that was about wide enough to fit one other person before the cliff face butted up against an endpoint of the ledge. It really felt like there was a person sitting next to me, but not quite…

I shrugged it off, and welcomed the presence, whatever (or whomever) it was. We figured it could only be a positive presence, since it was warm and within the bubble, along with us! (Note: It was just this past week that I’ve come to understand who was sitting next to me; but that’s another important blog, for another day… more to come!)

Shortly after that, we both sensed that we no longer needed to stay. We both experienced the oddest feeling as we climbed down, and started on the trail away from the Big Pinnacle: At one point, we both knew exactly when we’d broken away from that bubble, even though the scenery hadn’t changed in the least – there was nothing distinctly different in the landscape (no more trees, bushes, or shade – in fact, we were directly in the sun), but it was as if we’d walked through a membrane, to the “outside.” Just as I noticed it, Phran stopped, turned to look at me, and said, “Do you feel that? Suddenly, I feel cold and lonely, like we’ve happened upon some forgotten, enchanted forest!”

I laughed and agreed.

There were other parts of the mountain, other parts of the area we were drawn to explore; however, I distinctly heard, “Not today!”

Meaning, of course, that we’d be back there again another time…I’m looking forward to it!  🙂

Post Scripts (Follow Up Notes and Explanations)

  • The golden, glowing orb in the “water.” Previous to my first trip to Pilot Mountain, I had done a Google search trying to find any information about the mountain being a vortex of any kind. I found a site by a man  named Joseph Robert Jochmans researching and discussing his experience with Reawakening energy points throughout the world, as well as many other very, very interesting and timely topics in the world of energy and metaphysics. Though I had the site bookmarked, I know I had seen a page talking about his experience on Pilot Mountain; however, I somehow missed the page that contained his discussion about the Etheric Gemstone Temples (it’s worth the read, and fascinating!). I came across this other page with information that included Pilot Mountain on his site after the trip, when I went back to read about his experience again, compare notes…and see what else he’d found on his journeys. I was blown away by his report entitled, “A Journey Through the Thirty-Three Etheric Stone Temples,” which includes yet another whole section about Pilot Mountain… and wondered why it was I had totally missed this in the first place! Here’s an excerpt:

“The anchoring in of the TOPAZ Sanctuary will occur above Pilot Mountain in North Carolina, U. S. A, at the new Capricorn Planetary Node Point. It shall serve as an important KEY for unlocking both the Bimini and Uxmal (Temple of Iltar) Halls of Records, which according to Edgar Cayce are sister Halls to the one at Giza.

The INITIATION ESSENCE for the Capricorn Temple is: COMPASSION WITHOUT INVESTMENT IN OUTCOME, BLAME OR PITY.

In the Spiritual Realm, your All Self now takes you to the Sanctuary of TOPAZ, the gem of your new Third Eye energy center. The Temple itself is made up of six huge transparent topaz crystals, one turning inside the other. Each crystal has dozens of facets triangle-shaped and glowing in different topaz hues. A brilliant yellow gemstone slowly moves in the center surrounded by a rose stone, itself encased within a pink crystal that in turn floats within a light green topaz. These are all inside a blue topaz, and the final or outermost gem shimmers clear.

As these forms slowly turn inside each other the sunlight passing through them triggers a fantastic array of spectral colors. There are also flashes of static electricity flowing along the crystal edges which light up the symbol of Capricorn etched onto their outer surfaces.

Your All Self introduces you to the Temple Guardian, the Angel Capriel, who wears a stunning yellow topaz on Her forehead. She makes these comments…” (Go to the Website to see the whole text)

Further, just today, as I was just cutting and pasting this information into this blog, and re-reading it, I found yet another item in here that I didn’t notice before… the comment about unlocking Bimini. About a week ago, I received another “message” (from the entity that had been sitting next to me on that ledge that day) that had to do with similar information about Bimini… until then, I’d never even heard of it – I had no idea where on Earth it was, until I looked it up! Well, I guess THAT will be yet another post, on another day… [Back to the post…]

  • The huge wave and the “air wave.” During the week following this trip. I was having an email interchange with the awesome woman who has taught me Theta Healing – Linda Grimm (see her Website, she has classes coming up in January) – and Linda gave me exactly the right words for the light bulb to go off in my head. Here’s the quote from her email:

“Think about if you could teach someone else how to pull the energy of a sacred place at will. Somehow, that feels important. It’s like, if you needed the roots of a tree, could you pull that energy? If you needed the vision of the hawk, could you pull that energy? If you needed the ability to shift and change with the tides and wind like the sand, could you pull that energy? Connecting to these gifts that are available not only in certain places but in our stored mental images and records is powerful. It feels like some of your future students will be able to relate to that more than asking Creator to provide it… So, give that some thought and see if it resonates with you.  I just got… If you needed the fiery beauty of a maple tree in the fall, could you pull that?  If you needed the freshness of a daffodil after a long winter, could you pull that?  Oh so many!!!”

As I read her email, the BUZZ went off: “…If you needed the ability to shift and change with the tides and wind like the sand, could you pull that energy?…” The wave came back to me immediately, and the power of the wind that suddenly picked up was intense… and felt just like the power of the water that I’d felt inside of me at that exact moment. It was incredible and incredulous, but I realized that I had been shown exactly how to harness that energy, and I hadn’t even realized it!!!

Super cool, very overwhelming… and amazing. The next step: Remembering how to do just that, on command! 😉[Go back to the post]

  • Messages that the ladybug brings for us. In doing some shamanic work, I’ve found that the sudden unquestionable presence of any living being in my life typically has an appropriate message, with perfect timing! Therefore, upon my return home (more like the next day – I was WAY too tired to do anything that night!), I looked up the messages that we can get from the ladybug. Here’s what I found:

Resurrection!

The appearance of a Ladybug heralds a time of luck and protection in which our wishes begin to be fulfilled. Higher goals and new heights are possible; worries begin to dissipate; new happiness comes about. Their presence signals a time of shielding from our own aggravations and pests.

Some great resources for animal messages are several books by author Ted Andrews:

  • Messages that the hawk brings for us. Likewise to the ladybug, I looked up the message from the hawk. I figured it wouldn’t would be too different from the eagle, which has been one of my life totem animals; though the message is close, I did find out that there is a slightly different message from the hawk:
Messenger, protector, and visionary of the air; this powerful bird can awaken the Visionary within you, and lead to your life purpose. It is the Messenger, and when it shows up, pay attention: There is always a message coming. Once Hawk shows up, it will stay with you permanently. This powerful bird can awaken your visionary power, open your higher chakras to hear the messages of the Universe and lead to you to your life purpose. Also look for the Raven to precede or accompany Hawk when it presents itself to you. (!!!!! How funny is that?!?!). The sky is Hawk’s realm, and through its flight it communicates with Heaven and the Great Creator Spirit, and conveys that knowledge to Earth: Hawk medicine unites Heaven and Earth.

  • Messages that the raven brings for us. I’ve never been overly fond of the raven; I have to admit, it’s partially because they get a bad rap in contemporary literature. When my husband told me he’d decided his totem must be a raven, I was never really comfortable with it. I can’t tell you why, though several different reasons whisper through my head as I type this. Anyway, in deference to the raven, there are many very strong, positive points about its presence. In stride with the ladybugs and the hawks, I did look a little more deeply into its message, and here’s what I found:
Raven is the messenger of magic from the great void where all knowledge waits for us. He is also the symbol of changes in consciousness, of levels of awareness and of perception. He carries the mark of the shape-shifter, and carries healing energy from great distances… Raven medicine can give you the ability to get inside another’s head and heart, to feel true empathy, and to understand these people from the inside out, so to speak. Spiritual healers and counselors use Raven power, for they have a depth of understanding and empathy not shared by all. Because of this powerful medicine, they can often actually change another’s behavior and perception, to work real magic in bringing insight, peace, healing and understanding to others; to at least offer others a different and positive perspective of things, circumstances and people in life. This medicine must always be used in the Light for the highest good and best interests of others; and never for personal gain or dark reasons…like the Hawk, he is also the Messenger of the Great Spiritual Realm. With Raven, human, and animal spirits mingle and become as one to help you shapeshift your life or your very being. Raven has the knowledge of how to become other animals and how to spake and understand their language… This creative life force can and should be used to work the magic of spiritual law on this physical earth plane, to create the ethereal link between Body and Soul and God and the Oneness of the Universe. This is your path with Raven medicine; to always work your magic in the Light, to co-create with God, and to enlighten all those around you to the True Magic in life.



My added significance is the fact that one of my husband’s totems is the raven… so I knew I should meditate upon that some more. And I did. It wasn’t a week later when the answer came to me, from one of my Guides:



“Yes, the raven’s message is true for you; however, the added depth to that for you is that part of the agreement you and your husband made in the etheric realms had to do with your Awakening to pursue your highest path; it was partially being with him that helped to cause what you call your Grand Awakening so you can pursue this path.”
