Quest for Sanctuary

Lifestyle Learning

A few years ago when I was researching the Peace Parks concept, looking what's in and around the UK, one of the most moving things I came across was the Quiet Garden and the work of Fr. Patrick.

Later, when I was then researching architecture, looking for spherical and circular structures for spiritual practice to help assist specific brain-wave states and help devotional practice which work in non-controlling, non-hierarchical ways . . . . Worth Abbey comes up again!

Taking a close look, it seemed to me the Monks are not stooped in past doctrines of the Benedictines, but serve in living and meaningful ways which are very current and vital today. It made me think that in the UK, many seekers have, in recent decades enjoyed the introduction and the renaissance of various Buddhist and other eastern traditions - all very important in pluralism and universality - and by-passed some immediate things on the doorstep which quietly speak a similar, equally profound message of awesome personal potential. I wanted to do a retreat at Worth Abbey.

Early last year (2005), whilst walking the 120km of the High Weald Landscape Trail from Sussex to Kent, I came across Worth Abbey again to my great delight. Why does the heart 'soar' so?
  • Is it the landscape and the nature environment?
  • Is it the modern circular architecture for worship within a community setting?
  • Is it the devotional lifestyle of something which I've got difficulty hanging on to?
Later in 2005, I was thrilled and most uplifted by the BBC series 'The Monastery' not only to find this was Worth Abbey (again) but, more importantly, the work they were doing with the people who'd agreed to be the subject of the series. This was a similar client-group I worked with in prisons, and the rehabs. (Had I had access to this series, or to Worth Abbey, or to be able to refer people to the Abbey???) I am so thrilled this TV series is to be repeated again this year in June. It's an education and experience to all! If you missed it first time, then tune-in!!

And, it doesn't stop there. Earlier this week, early one morning whilst still in half-sleep and half-listening to the radio I heard a debate about a new book release and this person (the author) seemed to be explaining so beautifully, lot of things I'd like to be able to. So eloquently! I later discovered this was The Abbot from the TV series, Fr. Christopher Jamison. Do take time to read his new book Finding Sanctuary.

Does it matter whether the origins are in sandskrit or Latin or any other ancient text? The five tips to meditate are really the same, the principles of devotional living are the same, in or out of a monastic setting, whichever part of the planet we are on.

"Monks pray. A monk is in a constant state of prayer, expressed in whatever he's doing. Whether he's sleeping, eating, working or in church, monks never stop worshiping God, because God is in absolutely everything they do.

"Monks also pray through meditation, an inwardly-focused state of stillness primarily done on one's own. When Monks aren't in church, praying or meditating, they have a monastery to run. A community of men, religious or otherwise, can't run itself.

"So there is work to be done in the gardens, in the kitchen, washing clothes, maintaining the church and the monastery, as well as the pastoral work of the parish, the school and looking after visitors. It's very hard work, and requires a tremendous amount of discipline to make sure everything is done."

Whilst most of us don't want to become nuns or monks of any religion, don't see it as a life purpose and yet still aspire . . . . there's so, so much we can learn (which most of us tend to ignore or disregard) which is not just about value-structures and moral code, but also about personal discipline, adopting a way of life which is otherwise so hard to maintain by oneself.

Renewables :: sustainable energy

Water technology

There's been so much media blasts in the last few days about sustainable energy options, discussions on nuclear, wind turbine farms at sea, wave and tidal power, solar energy devices, biomass, and the debates continue.

Waterpower is something that particularly fascinates me and has done for many years. Anyone who knows me also knows I have a passion for watermills and waterpower technology. Twenty years ago when I was doing my first watermill restoration project I was also researching industrial evolution.

I believe the development of waterpower through the ages is taken for granted and so misunderstood. Industrialisation has come about by harnessing the power within water. Waterpower technology appears in most ancient cultures around the planet as means of manufacture going back millennia. Wind power is much more recent stuff. (I've written about this in more detail elsewhere, so ask if you'd like more on the subject.)

Thesedays we're beginning to learn more about - let's call it - "personal" water i.e. the fact that our bodies, including our DNA are mainly water; quality of water we drink; recent findings on the memory of water and it's crystalline structure, and so on.

I believe water is a potential power source for the planet's human population, and is the one of the least understood elements in nature. I am convinced there are deep revelations yet to be made and I'm not sure that scientists are much advanced in their research. I hope I'm proved otherwise.

Twenty years ago, whilst studying waterpower evolution, I had an intuitive channeling. My understanding is that the nuclear debate has very limited vision; the new generation of wind-turbine farms will be decommissioned and de-rigged quicker than they're being built. These are not the only options, and there's another story yet to unfold. The discovery of the power within the atomic structure of the water molecule will have a significant effect on power technology and the associated economics. My understanding is that, whilst other powersource systems are limited in their application or costly etc. etc., the harnessing of power within water is literally limitless, close to perpetual motion in a seamless feedback loop.

I also believe that when this is discovered it will also be a major indicator of the maturation of the human scientific progress.

Group Biofields :: collective energies

Colourful Consensus

A frequent topic of discussion is on management and governance of collective principles, gaining informed agreement, consensus, and what is democracy ....

Whatever we call any system, it's still a man-made construct and therefore subject to interpretation, manipulation, and all the self-seeking control stuff we're all too familiar with, non of which is very enlightening. It would seem to me that the most important thing is not the words we use to describe a system of debating/ management/ governance, nor the system itself for they are all fallible. What's most important is the intent of those contributing to process.

Words can be manipulated to bring about a variety of meanings and outcomes, rational 'truths', justifications. The colour of energy however, just 'is' and therefore is not subjected to any of that criteria. Energy patterns don't know morale right or wrong, positive/negative, just or injust, energy 'is'! Therefore right intent is the expression of 'good' energy (i.e. non-divisive, non-manipulative) seen in etheric colour or resonance.

One key example for me is when we were co-founding the UK Reiki FederationI use (apologies to those who've heard it all before):

There was a meeting in London with all the major schools within the UK invited to attend with a view to gaining consensus, organising professional practice in preparation for self-regulation of the profession in UK healthcare law. I was the 'new boy on the block', not sure why I was there, and very much wanted to just observe and support. Naively, I was awe-inspired thinking "wow, being in the same presence of such wisdom, such semi-ascended beings." I was not sure I was worthy to be at such a meeting so I'd best not say anything and just tune-in and absorb the energies.

We did a large Reiki-circle. Discussions commenced, I was still trying to visualise the large pillar of pure white light ascending from this circle and I was having great difficulty. Thinking it was more about me and my inability to match their vibrationary level/ frequency, I worked hard to listen and also tune-in more precisely. I realised that the pillar of white light from the group energy was actually a muddy colour and a very distorted shape. My intuition told me that either there was something horribly wrong OR, conversely there was about to be a catastrophe (in London they happen frequently). I guess both were right.

I listened hard with 'the antennae up', not just for a hour but for the whole morning and into the afternoon. Finally, I could stand it no longer, the arguments, the misquoting and the mis-representations, I asked the facilitator if I could speak. I fed-back to the group what I understood to be the sifted or 'filtered' expressed collective intentions and asked that if that were the case and everyone agreed, there was also a constructive way forward which embraced them all.

Without going into chapter and verse, that's what happened and why/ how I became the founding 'chair' for the first five years of the Federation. The point I'm trying to make here is that I had no former intention and zero expectation this would be the case.

During those formative years, instead of a hierarchical structure we were 360 degrees, we didn't have an executive board but a Core Team. When Core Team met, irrespective of a logical organised agenda to address (from admin) we always held a circle, sensed or 'read' the energy and worked with 'what is'. We also tried to make it fun and enjoyable, rather than a burden or obligation. Later in the day we'd check to see that we'd also covered the agenda.

Core Team members all had to adhere to the five Reiki Precepts (as set by Dr Mikao Usui) and ALL also to be in continual self-practice. The purpose and value in virtue was for all to do our best to get the intent as pure as possible and to support each other if it were otherwise. It's not to say that we didn't have problems, far from it. They were pioneering times, sometimes bizarre taking us into unexpected areas of unfolding, but we had the faith and confidence in our collective endeavors. We succeeded.

I believe the model started to breakdown when we became less rigorous in the insistence of self-practice and the Precepts for Core Team. People (Reiki Masters) would just accept it as a 'given' without question (because of who they were, where they were coming from and what they were trying to do). A political, fear engendering blame culture began to creep in, as with most 'normal' organisations. Time became often more focused on personalities and politicals rather than getting the intent right for the Highest Good, irrespective of words expressed. The colour of collective energy tells another story!

My opinions on Consensus and a new way of managing societal being, our collectives? Yes, it I believe it can work when a discipline which is openly agreed and adhered to by all who are co-opted into process, along with a shared commitment to see it through. The sum is greater than its parts, and can still be relatively 'clear' without too much baggage. (I've not seen many working good examples though.) Hoping "it'll all be alright on the night" is not enough!

For those not familiar with Reiki Precepts:
  • Just for today do not worry
  • Just for today do not anger
  • Honour your parents, teachers and elders
  • Earn your living honestly
  • Show gratitude to every living thing
Can you imagine how different our political structures and governments would be, our captains of industry, our media moguls, if this were recognised adopted. We wouldn't waste more time and energy 'arguing the toss' and taking stances, we'd be saying "oohh, we're SO 'off-colour' and need to be well to work well; let's take time-out to reflect, refocus, and radiate more healthily, it'll be more efficient in the longrun, save loads of time and angst!"

Thought Technology :: waves of intent

Faster Than The Speed Of Light

We know in our everyday lives that there's more 'alive' in the cosmos which is beyond our visible range of the electromagnetic spectrum (i.e. the bits we can see), and yet most of us still try to use the conditioning of old-style physics to justify and rationalise our thought processes.

Einstein tells us that nothing can travel more than 186,282.397 miles per second. That's probably OK for those who believe they live just in a 3 or 4 dimensional timespace. However, our recent scientific theories tells us of an 11 dimensional Multiverse with the nearest Universe being less than 1mm away from YOUR skin! (Mine too!!) So what's going on in all these far out places, these realms of hyper space, no further than the end of your arm??? Hhhmmm .....

So, I wonder where all the ascended beings hang out in the heavens, and the angelic realms (mentioned in just about all faith systems) in some far-off remote galaxy? Unlikely. More likely they're here, now, just beyond our five-sense perception.

Prayer, distant healing, healing circles also appears in some form in just about all faith systems too, along with sound such as mantra and hymns. Why? Because it's using thought technology which, if done in the right, in a focused way can bring instant and miraculous results. NLP and EFT techniques are useful modern examples.

In thinking of others, it's no good just thinking words "poor sods down the road, they've had it a bit rough lately, wish them well," because evidently, the intent isn't rightly applied to bring about the results requested, it's not sent on the right frequency-band.

Why do we use chanting, sound vibration and certain music? To prepare, to tune-in to the right 'station'. Why do we use meditation and prayer? Simply, to send the right 'signal'. When we're in delta and theta brain-wave states - it's proven - "cosmic consciousness" and "miracles happen"! So why not spend more time working in these states?

I've never met anyone who has NOT had phenomenal experience, one way or another. By phenomenal I mean beyond 3D, 5 sense explanation. Miracles happen all over the place and yet we still doubt it! Ponder on your individual role and what the collective impact would be if people 'unplugged' themselves from old-conditioning, the entrapment? What proportion of your think time is spent on control-drama and conditioning and how much is spent on miracle mindedness? Therefore, what aggregate energetic signals are you/we projecting out? Wouldn't it be great to step-up the frequencies of our hearts and minds in a more personally empowered way?

There are as many ways to God (Unity Consciousness, Supreme Being, the Divine, and all other names/titles) as there are people. All people share the potential and, surely that's what brotherhood and sisterhood is about. Religion IS separation as it claims some kind of unique in-road to spirituality.

Most agree that being of service to one's fellow man is a worthy cause, yet most of the time we are not in service to ourselves. Think, about what signals you're sending out to the cosmos as well about what you're receiving.

Preparedness and Mind Mastery techniques are about purifying and filtering the channel, plugging in the right powerpack or 'charge', and tuning-in the best frequency band.

Agnihotra :: homa therapy

Agnihotra Adventure

A few people in the UK are asking where to source the fuel (cow pat) locally. We also have practioners (in the south) offering to set something up. If you're interested or can help do let us know.

We are planning a physical adventure as well as a spiritual exploration to find out more. The main purpose of our trip is to experience and learn the ancient Ayurvedic science. This purification of the atmosphere has been resurrected for the benefit of mankind.

Agnihotra is a gift to humanity from the Vedas, the most ancient body of knowledge known. It is given at this most crucial time to enable us to get out of the extremely polluted conditions we have created on our planet. We have the power to change these fundamental conditions by changing what is ours to change … OURSELVES … and our immediate environment. A beneficial change in our environment affects beneficially ALL OF LIFE.

The simple Agnihotra fire, practiced at sunrise and sunset will heal the atmosphere, and this purified atmosphere will, in turn heal you, your family, animals and plants around you and your home. Feel the tremendous effects of stress being lifted as peace, love and tranquillity enter your life. Find out how and why.

Based at the Tapovan spiritual health retreat in North Maharashtra in India, the tranquil, rural setting is amidst fruit orchard or mango, almonds, figs, and Ayurvedic herbs which is ideal for meditation. Simple nature-cure treatments including mud baths, steam baths with Ayurvedic herbs along with full body massage. Learn simple, sustainable lifestyle skills including sprouting, dehydrating food, gourmet vegetarian cooking, seed saving, vermiculture and some useful meditation techniques. You can participate in eco-friendly housing constructions projects with locally available materials, e.g. bamboo, mud, straw, etc., also play with the farm animals and participate in simple craft jewelling making sessions.

The expedition elements of the adventure include exploring Ellora and Ajanti Caves, both World Heritage sites. The Hindu, Jain and Buddhist caves and shrines were chiselled into perfection between the 4th and 9th century. Also visits to the temples in nearby villages on a bullock-cart, journeying to other ancient temples set on one of India’s sacred rivers, walking the banks of the Narmada Other local attractions include the Temple of Trees, an evening concert of Bhjans featuring local villagers.

On Retreat:

This holy place is unique and run by westerners who follow a simple Vedic lifestyle. Accommodation is for 2 persons sharing with bed linen and towels provided. Each person will be under the care of a trained Ayurvedic doctor for the entire stay. A cleansing, nourishing diet will be adapted to suit each persons individual needs.

The typical daily pattern on retreat :: begin the day with sunrise Ayurvedic Healing Fire :: simple yoga on the rooftop terrace :: morning stroll and rock collecting :: mud bath plus choice of spinal bath, steam bath or massage :: hands-on learning about sprouting grains, legumes, seeds and nuts :: participation in the preparation of gourmet vegetarian dishes, both raw and cooked :: making simple wholemeal chapattis or bread in the home-made oven :: sustainable lifestyle skills :: meditation and breathing techniques :: sunset Agnihotra Healing Fire.

The duration of this adventure will be finalised once we’ve ascertained the level of interest. However, it is likely to be around three weeks and will include at least the above activities. Sometime between Oct 2006 and March 2007.

Pineal Gland :: our cosmic antenna

Awakening Beyond Five Senses

Coincidentally, having just re-read the HRM (see Sungazing post) info on pineal activation and the scientific measurement of his own, I also just received details from Gerde, of a workshop by Dr Saskia Bosman of the Foundation for Environmental Consciousness, about the very same subject. I quote ....

"In a distant past our pineal gland used to be our third eye and, even more than an eye: a cosmic receiver and sender of multi-dimensional information. The pineal gland is now a tiny gland in the centre of our brain, connected with all our senses and the rest of our body. Through the other senses it communicates with the outer world in electrical impulses.

"With its spectrum of hormones it regulates our state of consciousness, e.g. waking, sleeping, dreaming, various meditative states including those states in which we may have mystical experiences. The mind and senses are paths for occult energies that work through various psychophysical centers or chakras, among the highest of which is the pineal gland. These centres continue to develop as we evolve towards spirit.

So, while the third eye or pineal gland has certain physiological activities in conjunction with the pituitary gland - together they regulate the rhythms of metabolism and growth - it is also the physical organ of intuition, inspiration, spiritual vision, and divine thought. The pituitary gland is the thought receiver and the pineal gland, often called our true master gland, is the thought transmitter.

"The pineal gland is the very key to the highest and divinest consciousness in man - his omniscient, spiritual and all embracing mind. It is the
Single Eye.

"The more light you can store in your body, the higher your vibration will become. The higher your vibration is, the easier it becomes to elevate your surrounding as well as the people around you. Now is the time to reawaken our pineal gland as a cosmic antenna."

The two day workshop covers not only a lot of the theoretical information but also practical exercises particularly, visualisation, meditation, Qi Gong, breathwork. Also references biblical quotes and similar it also talks of the coming together of science and spirituality.

Sungazing, it seems, and the work of HRM is not just about using our retinas and optic nerves to 'main-line' solar source. Solar Yoga is also a special mind-set, a focused intent which also involves other 'doing', some of these subtle yet profound other exercises, and probably more.

As they become habit, probably they are just done intuitively, almost unknowingly. Perhaps, consquently, they are discussed even less.

Pineal (re)activation is also discussed quite a lot in Flower of Life training and the work of Drunvalo. It seems to be on everyone's mind at the moment! (pun intended)

Dualities :: "on the one hand ...."

"... and, on the other hand"

Duality is just a way of differentiating some 'thing', some measure of contrast. It's not absolute. It's not a 'given'.

Yin yang is not duality for there's far more to it than two aspects. It's dynamic, each element chasing the other, each contrained within the other, and all contained within something else!

North south depends if it's the compass one is referring to or the electromagnetic force. If it's a compass there's also west and east to think about as well as all the other points. If it's the electromagnetic, quantum cosmology provides examples of the monopole and other 'magnetic attractions' which are not dependent on duplicity.

Light dark what? Our eyes receive a narrow band of the electromagnetic spectrum, in shades and tones, and in varying degrees of brightness (or darkness) sometimes too bright to look at and view directly. Similarly, is 'seeing pitchblack' absolute darkness and, if so who decides?

Is sexuality about male female gender orientation or is it procreation? Is sperm, egg, zygote the same debate? Equal rights the same debate? Consumation and abstinance, monogamy, polygamy and celebacy are discussions of tradition, culture, different beliefs and teachings. There's plenty of evidence to show that ALL humans are a blend of masculine and feminine attributes influenced by hormone balance, genetically, socialogically and by other means. Some cultures accept up to 16 identified different sexual orientational practices as morale, just and acceptable.

Health is not the absence of disease. This has been mentioned in other posts and there's masses yet for humanity to unfold and awaken to.

Peace war
are not two sides of the same coin either. The opposite of war is anti-war and is generated by FEAR (False Evidence Appearing as Real). The drama requires three components to potentise itself (not two, but three). The drama needs a 'victim', a 'perpetrator' and 'rescuer' in order to make it spin. War IS it's own enemy! Authentic peace has no opposite.

Life death are not opposites. Good evil are not opposites. If you have a problem working this out, then please discuss it with me. Hate is not the opposite of love. Love has no opposite.

One of the fundementals we learn in Kriya Yoga is achieving equanimity - the observation of equal mindedness of self - in the four key dualities (or opposites). Each are flip sides of the same record:
  1. Pleasure & Pain
  2. Fame & Disgrace
  3. Loss & Gain
  4. Heat & Cold
Being able to simply observe equanimity - without REaction - aligns our subtle energies of the Human Biofield firstly to the seven centres which are largely orientated with the physiological system, secondly to prepare us to harmonise more the next six centres for harmonisation oriented toward Unity Consciousness, thirteen in all.

Think about it. How can the grosser or lower levels of vibration give way to the finer-tuned, subtle frequencies radiate through with so much 'push-pull' activity, action and REaction going on at the more physical level, all the 'rights and wrongs' to decide upon, foods and drink which stimulate or suppress brain activity and energy levels, the myriad of other influences for us to ricochet in so many directions each of which are all justifiable (according to where we are 'at' or what we consider to be 'right' at that time)? When Tibetan monks sit in meditation and melt snow, this technique is, in some ways, aligned to gaining equanimity.

The homosapien population 6,604,592,500 individual entities (at the time of writing) all trying to survive, each in their own way, how many are consciously aspiring to Unity Consciousness to resolve their perception of duality?

If you're reading this, then you probably in a privilaged position - through whatever circumstance brought you here - to do something about it, should you choose!

Something to ponder.

Cosmic Law Wheel :: falun dafa

Cultivation & Practice.

In some respects falun dafa, falun gong is a fusion using buddhist and taoist principles. Fa Universal law, lun wheel and da great. Definitions, terminology and the meaning of the revolving swastika symbol are explained here.

There are just five exercises to learn. The whole system is yours for the taking, and it's all for free. Amazing! At their media centre you can create your own resource library on MP3, VCD and other ways. Download videos or audios:
  • all the 5 exercises in sequence;
  • music tracks for practice;
  • 9 lectures /talks from Li Hongzhi, the founder;
  • there's even ready made labels for CD sets etc.
Each lecture is about 1.5 hrs. Before you think "wow, that's too much to listen to" consider how much time you 'give' listening to news, soaps and similar. Also, these are not workshops/ seminars you have to pay for or go somewhere to learn!

Whether you agree with everything Li says, some of it or non of it, this IS amazing work and the technques ARE doing a lot of good for a lot of people, particularly in China. It's powerful stuff to the extent that practitioners are tortured and murdered .... just for doing a form of qi gong practice? Crazy!!

One of the points Li makes repeatedly is that, this may not be the right technique for all people, but whatever you(we) do, whatever our chosen method is, we need to make a commitment to the cultivation and practice. Those who think enlightenment or ascendence comes just by thinking it or just by waiting for global change, are deluding themselves. Work and application is required.

Why? :: F.A.Q's

Soul Purpose

Is it to do with awakening and/or ascension? More than likely.

Are humans 'hard-wired' for this process/purpose? Could be.

Do we exist in other dimensions? Yes, definitely.

Is it about activation of the Light Body? Why not!

Is it about religion or faith? No.

What about guilt and virtue? You tell me.

Past and future? Healing is in the present, wherever that may be in the Eternal Now.

Is it open for everyone? Yes, but only a small minority will respond.

Is it just theta and delta brainwave patterns or achieving other altered states of consciousness? No.

Is it to do with self-realisation? Depends what's experiential and what remains theoretical for you.

Is it a Soul grouping coming together for the great event? If it resonates with you at a profound level, you'll know. Be guided from within.

I've not found any system which completely supports my beliefs of 'who I am' in a way that's wholly authentic and respectful of my Sovereign Being.

In looking to follow certain gurus or faith traditions, at some point I nearly always find their views incomplete, sometimes doctrinated in a way I find unacceptable. From a deep sense of knowing, they haven't got the full picture and it would be inauthentic for me to compromise and continue. Some, I find are bigoted, opinionated and take a moral high-ground, because they have a captive audience who have lost their inquisitive ability. The majority still look for forgiveness and absolution and are not seeking their Divinity.

The story of faith systems, their history and evolution sometimes is a stringing together to account events to justify what they do in the name of truth without evidence. Therefore, in my opinion these are JUST stories not to be taken as literal and filters need to be used, much as you'd use a spam filter on your computer. Discernment! Paradox and double standards appear frequently, most of which are neatly justified, sometimes too neatly i.e. "it's OK for me to do this, but not so you." This, to me is part of the dumbing down, control-drama in another way.

Discourse and dialogue have their use in helping us refocus, in realigning, in our rediscovery, but the time has to come when we lay down the words in preference to personal practice and cultivation techniques, to direct experience. Otherwise, words count for very little.

One thing all techniques share is the requirement for focused intent, personal practice and conscious cultivation.

Sungazing :: solar yoga

Solar Healing

Of course, why wouldn't I want to? It's not buying into a religious regimen or strict meditation discipline, and there's no temple or church to go to. Nor is it quasi spiritualism, no workshops or seminars to attend or sign-up for. And, it's not about learning what food is 'right' for us/me, nor about eating or not eating.

It's learning an easy technique, building the practice gradually just for nine months. It's about making a focused direct connection with the sun at an appropriate time on a daily basis .... our star which gives life to us and our host planet. The effects can be scientifically measured. And, no radical changes need to be made from the outset, just the commitment to do it. OK!

Looking at remedial fasting retreats, the results great and well worth all the effort, but they need so much preparation and dedication to see it through, and take out so much time. Not easy to do very often. Since studying rawfoodism I've long accepted that nutrition via food is a secondary source and the primary source being solar. I also love the idea of potentising solar water. This makes perfect sense.

I came across Hiri Ratan Manek's work about five years ago, read an article and was mildly interested. Another time I browsed his website and didn't really take in the information fully but I was curious on a couple of evenings to give it a go, then the next day was cloudy so that was the end of it. Now, having come across the info yet again it's as if it keeps finding me! I've read it more thoroughly this time and it 'presses all my "yes" buttons'. It's so natural.

When I think of some of the awe inspiring sunrises and sunsets I've seen in the past, at times majestic beyond description .... I'm gonna make it part of my daily routine. One sunrise I can never forget was whilst trekking in the Himalayas. I felt a deep and intimate connection with the planetary and systemic movement and rotation, with the divinity of nature on a scale I cannot begin to describe.

For years I've worked with the 13 lunar cycles in each solar cycle (instead of 12 months which make little sense). With the potent energy of the full moon sometimes as a peak experience, it's always a time for special meditations. Similarly, beginning something afresh around the new moon is routine to me. I'm also usually 'tuned-in' with the equinox and solstices and tend to mark each occasion with something special. How come I've missed out on synchronising with the sun itself, taking it for granted? Better prepare for healing of the solar kind.

I so resonate with Hira's words about it being a method of focus for Eternal Bliss, freedom from the threefold sufferings, mental illness, physical illness and spiritual ignorance.

Food To Die For :: take a fresh look

"Eat What YOU Are Biologically Suited To"

A simple message: If you had a car which runs best on unleaded, why would you persist trying to make it run on 4 star or diesel?

Most of us have sick behaviour because our mindset is to think that it's OK to eat what we can get away with rather than what we're actually suited to. Consequently, it makes us even more sick and keeps us trapped in varying degrees of unwellness. The majority of us are on toxic overload most of the time. Our poor immune defenses are endlessly on full-alert and then start kicking-back to give us reactions and food intolerances. If we take little or no notice or when we think we'll get rid of the symptoms by druging and suppression it then moves to the next stages of illness and disease in varying levels of severity. And, then we die before we would otherwise need to.

(When I think of the cycles of birth and rebirth, no wonder we keep on going round and suffering the same old stuff, we're living in ignorance of our biological nature! It's not just about emotional liberation and spiritual transcendence, there are physiological aspects too which, in my opinion, are not about mind over matter.)

If I could have a pound for every time someone has said to me "oh, I listen to my body and eat intuitively" I'd be awash with dosh. Generally, these words come from people with addiction who don't know it (or are in denial), and they believe what they're saying to be true and OK.

This would have been so years ago before the food and chemical industries took over to over sensitise our taste buds, get us hooked on addictive toxic poisions. Typically, thesedays, the things which we crave are the things which do us most damage, not the other way round. This is a perversion of what we think of as intuitive "it makes me feel good" (for a moment only, because you're feeding an addiction, not your body).

Do you intuitively eat salad leaves stored in inert gas to keep it fresh or a tomato or fruit deprived of natural ripening, stripped it's minerals and nutrition? What's intuitive about eating sugar or thickening agents? Where's the intuition in eating any processed food or pre-prepared meals bought in a supermarket? Where's the intuition in sweetners or flouride in water? All these things should carry labels Class 'A' Drugs (additive)!!

We've had a lifetime of conditioning as to what's right. Generally, parents don't really know and do their best to get by. We think Doctors are some kind of authority yet they get virtually no training as a General Practitioner, one day! All the nutrition gurus .... opens another can of worms all selling their way as right. We are lost in the maze and the haze. Trouble is, often we don't think we're lost in the maze and just carry on doing what we're doing until our body kicks back and cries out 'I'm sick and tired'.

Many of us are blinded by moral and ethical issues. When if comes to what we are biologically suited to, the 'raw/vegan Vs meat debate' is the least of our worries. How far food has travelled? Organic? GM? In season? Animal derivative? Peter D'Adamo and his father James, both naturopathic doctors have done some very interesting research about blood types. Two points to note here:


"Blood types are as fundemental as creation itself. In the masterful logic of nature, the blood types follow an unbroken trail from the earliest moment of human creation to the present day. They are the signature of our ancient ancestors on the indestructible parchment of history.

"Now we have begun to discover how to use the blood type as a cellular fingerprint that unravels as many of teh major mysteries surrounding our quest for good health. This work is an extension of the recent groundbreaking findings concerning human DNA. Our understanding of blood type takes the science of genetics one step further by stating uneqivocally that every human being is utterly unique. There is no right or wrong lifestyle or diet; there are only right or wrong choices to be made based on our individual genetic codes."


"Your blood type is a more reliable measure of your identity than race, culture or geography. It is a genetic blueprint for who you are, a guide to how you can live most fully. The key to the significance of blood type can be found in the story of human evolution: Type O is the oldest; Type A evolved with the agrarian society; Type B emerged as humans migrated north into colder, harsher territories; and Type AB was a thoroughly modern adaptation, a result of intermingling of disparate groups. This evolutionary story relates directly to the dietary needs of each blood type today."

He goes on to explain other crucial sub-groupings and why some foods are nutritious and beneficial for one type and toxic poision to to another. This gives a very interesting dynamic reasoning to look into and further rsearch.

Personally, I generally go along with Metabolic Profiling as outlined by Joseph Mercola. I do go along with the idea that grains and carbohydrates are probably not natural to our species and are linked to 'feeding-the-masses' as our early societies began to get bigger, part of the control devices. Drs. Brasco & Cordain have interesting words to say.

If in doubt as to what you are biologically suited to, don't just read books and listen to people, get tested! Compare tests!! There are many ways, from hair analysis to a number of bioelectro diagnostic systems ranging from Vega systems, EAV (Electro Acupuncture according to Voll), EDS (Electro Dermal Screening), and more.

Some the latest technology (which is of special interest to me) 'reads' your quantum Biofield and offers treatments using encoded organic colloidal minerals in 'charged' drops of water acting as a magnetic signpost to your field, realigning to help restore optimal health. If you'd like to find out more, do drop me a line. In the meantime, three basics:

1. Take charge: Unless you want to be another early-death statistic, a number in the matrix, get into the driving seat of what you eat.

2. Stop processed food: Stop ingesting mind altering additives and other poisons, other toxic substances even though they give a 'taste good' sensation, and are quick and convenient. Relearn how to prepare your own food for your own body.

3. Drink quality water: To rehydrate (think of the memory of water). There's plenty of evidence that most conditions are improved, if not healed by proper rehydration which means drinking a good 2 litres per day or pure water. Better still, make it sun-charged.

Some of the people I've met or talked to and whose work I respect are Elaine Bruce, John Fielder, Robert Snaidach. Don't take my words for it, do your own research, get tested and work out what's right for you.

Prana :: cosmic building blocks

One Creative Principle

What Indian sages thousands of years ago called "prana", the ancient Chinese named "chi" or "ki" and the Druids refer to as "od" or "id". It is commonly agreed, prana is the life force and works at neutrino level.

Modern science has found that our seemingly so solid world vibrates in an eternal dance of swirling atoms. These in turn consist of even smaller and smaller particles, which finally turn out to be pure energy (prana) densified in various wavelets and aggregates to form matter.

In general, there are two things which we take in when we breathe. One is air and the other is prana, pure life-force energy itself, more vital than air for our existence. If you take away air, you have a couple of minutes before you die; if you take away water, you have even more time; and if you take away food you have much more time still, but if you break prana from spirit, death is instantaneous. So taking in prana with breath is absolutely crucial in sustaining our life.

Prana is not just in the air, it is everywhere. There is nowhere that it is not; it even exists in a vacuum or a void. Nothing exists without prana, neither animate nor inanimate. Humans are an intricately layered four body energy system, consisting of a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual body - made of prana in various states of densification (i.e. wavelengths or vibrational harmonies). Each of these bodies is an electromagnetic energy field in form of a grid system, which resonates, in a specific frequency, not unlike an electronic computer memory bank. Each of these bodies functions on a different level and performs vital life interactions, e.g. processes information, holds memory and performs a multitude of other functions. The four bodies are linked through the chakra-system.

If unaligned (through shock, trauma, emotions) the mesh of these grids collects densified subtle energies (unreleased feelings, dysfunctional thought patterns... etc.) instead of letting them pass through. These unprocessed energies get trapped in the system. Moving through the layers, thoughts densify into emotions, emotions densify into physical sensations and finally solidify in physical symptoms - dis-ease and illness.

Prana is in everything and everything consist of it. The creative principle, per definition also is everything and everything consist of and through him/her/it . Therefore it seems that prana must be of divine nature and has to have a direct connection to First Source.

As prana is pure spirit, in breathwork session the "breather" usually connects via the spiritual body. Experiences include feeling warm and internally glowing, cared for and loved, mystical revelations and unity consciousness during the integration phase. Another fascinating by-product of this breathing technique is that it facilitates permanent Higher Self-connection. Initially you just get in touch with your Higher Self but over time you can establish a permanent conscious connection to your inner knowing, the Sovereign Self and true nature as soul having a human experience.

Recent findings suggest that once upon a time humans were actually consciously and continuously connected to the infinite supply of prana and existed purely of it. Not too long ago - about 13000 years - before the last pole-shift erased our conscious memory of it (as Drunvalo and Bob Frissell state), we used to breathe in such a way, that while air came in through our mouth and nose, we would take prana in through the top of our heads-what once was the soft spot on the top of our heads. Simultaneously, we took the prana in from below, through the perineum. If you carefully observe how new-born babies breathe you can actually observe this - a gentle pulsation at the fontanel and the perineum. The prana channel goes through the body like a vertical axle and is about two inches in diameter. It extends one hand length above the head and one hand length below the feet and connects with the crystalline energyfield (Mer-Ka-Ba) around the body. The prana then flows in from above and below the body and meets in one of the chakras. The chakra in which the prana meets depends on where you are mentally, emotionally, and dimensionally "tuned."

After the poles shifted, we stopped breathing in this manner and started taking in the prana through our mouth and nose directly with the air. The prana then bypassed the pineal gland in the centre of the head. The pineal gland is an eye - the third eye- not the pituitary gland as often thought of. It is shaped like an eyeball, round, hollow, with a lens for focusing light and colour receptors. It is designed to receive light from above to go to every cell in the body instantaneously. Normally this gland should be about the size of a quarter but in us it has become the size of a pea because we haven't used it for about 13,000 years.

The direct result of turning off the pineal gland is polarity consciousness-good and bad, right and wrong. Because of the way we breathe we see things in terms of good and evil, but in fact Unity is all there is; there is just one God, and one Spirit that moves through everything.

This post is based on an article written by my good friend Gerde Lange who does fantastic work. If you haven't already done so, try his breathwork courses!

Biogenic Living :: the Esseanic way

According to the Essenes ...

... most people are in 'death mentality'. Everything eaten in sorrow, anger or without desire becomes poison to the body, and otherwise the endless rage war continues. True brothers are those who do the will of the Heavenly Father and Earthly Mother, they are not the brothers of blood (i.e. war and persecution).

At the 'royal table' (that provided by Mother Earth) rejoice for this is pleasing to the heart of the Lord (nature, the Law of Life). And your life will be long upon the Earth and the most precious of God's servants (your body system) will serve you all your days. Feed on the gifts of Mother Nature for six days and sanctify your body on the seventh for your Heavenly Father, let the Angels of God build the Kingdom of the Heavens in your body and let not food trouble the work of the Angels. I tell you truly, if you see not disease anymore upon Earth you will live in the Kingdom of the Heavens.

The body is the Temple of the Spirit and the Spirit is the Temple of God. The peace of God is within. When we discover this, then we find peace among ourselves. Then we return to our Brothers and give our peace to them also. The power of rebirth then brings the Light of Peace.

Work towards perfection, that you should become as perfect as your Heavenly Father. Holy Spirit is perfect, and that your body become as perfect as the body of your Earthly Mother is perfect.

The Biogenic Regimen
  • Eat essentially living foods, not heat-treated (cooked) food
  • Eat two times daily, noon and sunset, once a day if super-fit
  • Eat two or three foods together fruit a.m., leaves & veg p.m.
  • Small amounts of raw dairy untreated and not from cow
  • Fast one day per week
  • If diseased, fast one day for each of your years
I'm fascinated by the writings of Edmond Bordeaux Szekely, particularly 'Search For The Ageless' series (as well as the more popular Essene Gospel of Peace), because of the biographical material and his journey to get accepted in order to access the otherwise, secret files in the Vatican. Well worth studying!

Shangri-la :: the Hunza

Secrets of the world's healthiest
and oldest living people

Jay Hoffman'’s accounted his journey nearly fifty years ago, to the Hunza Valley in the Himalaya of Northern Pakistan to research the oldest known people on the planet, the Hunzakuts. He describes in detail a community living a disease-free, long and healthy life, living over 100 years to 120 or perhaps even 140 really IS the natural norm for the human animal. Curious that this is NOT new information, that Jay's findings were carried out a couple of generations ago.

Perhaps if we can stop the continual poisoning of the body system and violating our very being, for us this need be some intangible esoteric concept or idealistic fantasy for future mankind to get his head around, or for scientists to manipulate our DNA or invent more pharmaceuticals. It's tanglible as something we can do here and now.

The Hunzakut Way Of Life

What makes them reknown for health, endurance and longevity? What do they do which is so different to have no degenerative disease and to die of old age rather than illness?

Essentially, their eating lifestyle involves being 90% vegetarian with a little milk and butter and goats meat on feast days. Staple in the diet is apricots, soy bean and wheat. They consume 80% complex carbohydrate, 10% protein and 10% fat. No oils or fats (other than in the form which nature presents it i.e. already contained in the whole food), no sugar, no condiments. No caffeine or alcohol drinks, however they do consume a high-mineral drink "salajeet" as part of the daily regime, a tea of rock resin. They have between 2-4 bowel movements per day, usually after each meal, stools which are soft and odourless. They always sleep on an empty stomach, never after a meal and typically for 6/7 hours each night. I wonder how easy it is to adapt to a similar regime and if it would bring the same results, or whether there would still be a magical 'something' missing?

Some say that the water they drink flowing from the glaciers are so pure and high in mineral content and energetically charged, that this is the most 'magical' ingredient as our water is so polluted, our foods deficient in minerals through forced growing and toxic chemicals and that a lot of what we consume is energetically dead.

In 2005 we were in discussion with them with the intention of starting a project there. We were also planning to take a small group on a trek to prepare to set it up. Then the earthquake happened and all plans were shelved. We'd still like to hear from anyone who is interested in taking part when the time's right. Do get in touch.

Intro :: reason for this blog

Light Project Reloaded

Thanks for stopping by. This blogspot is really to respond to questions and enquiries from the websites and other directions. We realised the sites were not constructed in ways which benefit people most, pages were 'fixed'. Therefore, we've redirected Peace Parks, Biofield Research, World In Peace and Light Project domains to this blog temporarily.

My apologies for initially uploading loads in one go. To a large extent it's stuff which was buried elsewhere in the other sites and we want to keep information available and accessible. Do let us know if there are any deadlinks or other loading difficulties (and typos).

We will be rebuilding the websites to meet the needs of people, if indeed there is a need?!

Do be mindful that The Light Project is not a physical place. A Peace Park or centre is a place in nature for peaceful things, which is not the same thing. However, they are not exclusive to one another. The Light Project is not information, words read in books or on this blog, nor dialogue, debate and rational thought process. However, they can be useful stepping stones and help provide a bridge, with the right intention.

"The most important things that each man must learn no one else can teach him. Once he accepts this disappointment, he will be able to stop depending on the therapist, the guru who turns out to be just another struggling human being. No meaning that comes from outside of ourselves is real. The Buddahood of each of us has already been obtained. We need only recognize it. This the Zen Master warns his disciple, if you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him!" by Sheldon B Kopp

Forget the internet, it's a crutch, just a tool. Remember, The Light Project is essentially experiential.

See you on the inner-net!

Contemplate :: focus one

I am not my thoughts,

I am the silence between my thoughts

Contemplate :: focus two

I am the illusion

of my own making

The Sovereign Self :: jewel purpose

Secret Doctrine? Lucis Trust & Alice Bailey? Enochian? Pleiadean? Wingmakers? Arcturian?

Names and titles, in this instance, are not important as this is not a contest of cosmic contact or awareness. I've been asked to repeat and share an important spontaneous experience of 'other world reality' beyond five senses. It's not shamanic ritual. It's not about ayahuasca or any other drug, herb, mushroom or substance use.

Reason: many others experience something very similar if/when doing 'the work'. By work, I'm not talking about the daily grind, looking after family needs, keeping up-to-date with the media, or staying in-touch with the 'chatter and clatter' of our mates and friends, mobile phones, web search, and the like. It's the reverse. The hard work is getting away from all that. Then, the easy work is just going with the flow, away from man-made constructs, in harmony with nature, cleansing and purifying the system and tuning-in.

The background to my experience is that I'd been desperate to get away on a particular retreat. It resonated big time. It's as if I had some in-built knowing. I'd been meditating 'properly' for months, cleansing, affirmations and lots of other preparatory work. When I received the email of the retreat and the costs I was so disappointed. I could never afford it and never get the time off work to do it. In the very next post was a letter about some bizarre small insurance policy I didn't even know about which had been bought by another company (or something like that), and was paying small dividends. With the letter was a cheque which amounted to the cost of the retreat plus just enough travel money to get there and return home! Coincidence or synchronicity?

Some time later . . .

About 5 days into the retreat, eating pure foods, cleansed, focused and I'm 100% with everything that's going on, with some really cool people and thinking "if this is a taster of paradise, then this is where I wanna be, this is my new life."

In the guided meditation I'm trying to keep with it but floating into translucent light, in another direction completely:

Suddenly, out-of-body I observe the room yet I have a choice where I'm being 'pulled' (magnetically) toward.

Suspended in what looks like outer-space however there are strands of DNA inter-twined and going back into infinity, awesome beyond description, all of which is 'me'; going back thru' our common history, through different ages and civilisations, Atlantean, Lemurian and beyond. When I bring each nodule of the DNA matrix into focus, each is a life of mine (or, more precisely one I can 'own and identify' as mine). I can freely enter each to relive or re-experience, future or past. Each nodule is a life-portal (including this life) on a past future continuum. Whether or not I have a magnetic need to return to any particular life or life experience (karma) is governed by whether the nodule has a peace symbol on it, or not. If there's a symbol yes, it's 'sealed', it's resolved although I still have free choice to re-enter. If no symbol, then it's not sealed and there are matters to resolve, things to learn, and there is a strong magnetic pull.

I tested them some of them out, wondering if this is just something in my mind, whether they are symbolic, metaphor or representational of mindset, present psychological state, guilt/shadow complex, and the like. I don't believe that to be the case. The more I entered each one the more it became less observational and the more I became involved holographically (if that makes any sense). The deeper I entered in and became involved the less easy it was to be able to retract.

Whilst still trying to map 'my' lives, past and future throughout the Universe, I'm thinking what an amazing insight this is and how grateful I am, in a suspended place of calm, peace and rest within the cosmos, in all that 'IS'. Somehow, I feel nurtured and looked after.

Almost shockingly the Cosmos splits, almost like a night sky painted on a theatre backdrop and the canvas rips. A portal opens in a controlled way. The magnetic pull takes me through into a much more rarefied Universe. It felt as if the other Universe, although suspended in the vacuum of 'nothingness' was filled with quite a lot of gross matter. This is an even nicer 'place' to be.

Just as I'm tuning-in, whoosh, it splits again! This time, the portal opens differently, like a camera shutter, into yet another even more rarefied Universe. This time no 'stuff' which I could call "matter," not even gaseous matter, not even dark matter. Something very, very different. The magnetism transports me.

Here, I can only briefly describe something representational. It involves seven facets (or chambers) of a magnificent jewel of creation. Each facet has an overseeing opalescent light entity or Lord, supported by another member of 'Council' (??*~*?? ...... yo, this is NOT stuff I believe in or would conjure up .... get into my dreams and you'd find out why!!!). My involuntionary and evolutionary role in lives is especially relevant to one facet. I meet and exchange with the Master and Guide both in their opalescent light-forms. Rituals and ceremonies takes place. All the learnings and teachings are in the Language of Light. Deep feelings of knowing, remembering and purpose. Feelings of belonging, yearning for home. An almost overwhelming love envelops me wrapped in Eternal Bliss. Timelessness. Rapture.

There's a sudden impulse as I'm being pulled away. Suddenly I start to feel uncomfortable as two portals reopen, I'm almost sucked back in the other 'direction' and I start to hear loud human voices (which are talking softly and gently). Everything starts to feel gross and crude as I begin to realise I'm precipitated into a body again which is really, very very heavy. I re-enter consciousness in the meditation room of the retreat centre.

I've journeyed for ages and ages, it felt like I'd been away not for hours, but years (perhaps longer). In the room, people said our meditation was for 20 minutes. When I 'came to' I asked their experience of the meditation, it was totally, utterly different.

I was profoundly effected by what happened and my life has been irrevocably changed ever since. On the retreat, I remained in near silence for the next few days whilst trying to integrate my new understandings and their implications.


Drug induced? Certainly not.

Led by beliefs or expectation? Nope, it was completely spontaneous and 'little me' was wanting to remain very much with the group.

Tried to conjure something, to be a bit 'special'?

Books or other things I've been 'exposed' to which could play on the mind?
Like what? Most unlikely, particularly when I felt fully in control all of the time, that I always had choices, that I was loved utterly and completely no matter what.

Psychological disturbance?
How? This is bliss, the stuff religions and other traditions talk of throughout the ages and aspire to. So do I, I'd like more please ..... except, I can't dial-it-up on demand!

Are those Light Beings the same as the Ascended Masters?
I wish! I was hoping they would be!! That would be easier, then I could talk more in the parlance that people (and I) are familiar with. It's another, different frequency-band.

Sacred Initiation?
Yep, such is the nature of initiation, life changes irrevocably by the revealing, you can't 'unlearn' or go back.

Absolutely not. Loads of people are having similar experiences. Though not conclusive, evidence suggests it needs the preparation 'work' to be put in by the aspirant, and without expectation or attachment, or looking for outcome. In other words, put in the work for yourself not for any other reason.

Crop Circles :: Down to Earth

Close encounters of a Cereal Kind

I so admire the work of Steve Alexander and Karen Douglas, also Michael Glickman and so many other specialists who have made it almost their life work to study in this particular field (pun intended). I also appreciate they need to stick to their professionalism and remain as neutral as possible in the debates. I only have my own experiences to share and therefore am not concerned about ridicule or having to remain neutral. For people who still want the debate of "are they real" and "what evidence is there" .... please, check out BLT Research.

I've been a supporter of the Wiltshire group for ages largely because it's 'home-grown' and people are open and get on with it. Here's one of my letters published in Spiral, Issue 76 Aug. 2002. Incidentally, the image here is the formation I refer to (below) which actually occurred whilst we were chanting, in exactly in the three ring pattern of our vocalists with the precise number. Many people believe it to be a kind of cymatic or echo response.

"Dear Dereka, "I missed you at the conference, it was truly wonderful and inspirational. This note is a sharing of experiences in light of the article you wrote for the latest Spiral. "Interestingly, at the end of the conference I was talk with someone in the car park at Devizes School for several hours, well into the evening on Sunday - to the point where we were locked-in and had to call the caretaker to unlock the gates! During our discussion, I one point, I thought it was raining as I felt some very distinct tingling sensations all over my head also my heart, yet it was a clear night. When I left to drive away most of the electrics on my car failed (headlights, wipers etc.) which meant I had a difficult drive to Burbage where I was staying with friends. When I arrived the electrics worked fine and they have worked OK ever since. "The last time something like this happened to my car was when I was working as a therapist in a high-security prison, and the RAC said that the frequency of their surveillance equipment had 'interfered' with the electronics of my car. There are two points about this: one, I cannot believe that Devizes School has such sophisticated surveillance equipment; two, even if it did it would not give me tingling sensations. "This is NOT a wind-up. I 'know' there was a great charge of energy (in many senses) at the school during the conference - so much that at least one circle was laid in response. Although I'm not a UFO groupie and not looking for ET conscious contact , I genuinely believe something was happening TO me the other evening, not BY me. The reason for writing this is to share but also to ask if there is perhaps a way of recording people's 'electrical' or 'charged' experiences? "In Love, Light and Unity"

There was more to my encounter with 'the energetic entity' than I could fully describe in a short letter, suffice to say that I'm now fully aware when I'm in the presence i.e. I know what to sense and indeed what to look out for.

The summer of 2002 was an amazingly potent time. We witnessed the Sparsholt Face, the Ribbons at StoneHenge, the Nautilus Shell at Pewsey, the DNA at Crooked Soley, the Eye of Horus in a Pyramid with Sunburst at Highclere and so many more truly temporary temples. Being amongst all this even for a few days of divine bliss, the 'charge' is so revitalising and uplifting it's better than going on holiday for a month! The landscape is energetically different.

More seriously, if/when we work with them with meditative focused intent which is not voyeuristic, they do respond and interact. My personal experiences are that, typically the shape which answers my question appears the following season and usually in the region I anticipate. For people who want to research more on this, I can thoroughly recommend reading a short but very well detailed book by Karen Douglas, "Charley Knoll, an archetypal crop circle adventure."

The most wonderful thing about cereal crops is, typically people believe they need to eat them as food, which is why they continue to be replanted year by year. I believe, they are not very good food but as a fantastic medium for communication and the expression of landscape art, perhaps the best we currently have!

MerKaBa :: the journey home

"We are Cosmic Beings having a spiritual initiation as well as a human experience."

- light fields, Ka - individuated spirit, Ba - reality (in our case, a human body).

The MerKaBa is a counter-rotating field of light generated from the spinning of specific geometric forms that simultaneously affects one's spirit and body. It is a vehicle that can aid mind, body and spirit to access and experience other planes of reality or potentials of life. It's a crystalline energy field that is comprised of specific sacred geometries that align the mind, body, and heart together.

Much more than maths, sacred geometry and activation techniques.

I've been asked numerous times if I would teach the MerKaBa meditation. Absolutely not, I'm not a trained facilitator and I strongly recommend going to someone who is. You will be honouring yourself and the technique if you take at least a week intensive to begin to learn the basics. Although great fun, it's also profound and it's of the life-changing kind! I'd also recommend 'prepare', don't just do it because you want a cool workshop to do for a few days.

Years ago, when I was doing my first Flower of Life, it was on about day 3 (could have been 4). I was dutifully following all my instructions from Drunvalo but also keen to push it and really get going. We were doing our MerKaBa developmental exercises and meditation I 'came back' into 3D and in my feedback I was really annoyed "some dude who had the body of a man and the head of a dog who was not going to let me through to a particular planet which I (somehow) knew I had to do." I'm confused, I thought the inner cosmos was all about nice things and unconditional love. "He's really powerful, and there's no way he was letting me through. We had quite a row. He won!"

I was told that was Anubis. "Who the hell's he? I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about." Someone explained he is the gate-keeper and for me to tune-in to why he's not letting me through and work on that. I was a bit angry and frustrated because by this stage I thought I could go anywhere, anytime, just by the power of thought and I wasn't going to be controlled!

Next day, I was in a more blissful state and during developmental medative exercise I returned to the same place and somehow, a different state of absorption, a knowledge and understanding had taken place. The awesome character greeted me once more.

This time he not only let me pass but escorted me on a journey through to and into a very specific light pyramid (not of the Egyptian kind). This was the place where yesterday I knew instinctively I had to get to. My escort also personally guided me, literally, and 'taught' me specific light recoding and their sequences. (Please don't ask me to try to translate their meaning in words.) I've had many other experience which tell me "respect, and only do MerKaBa meditation in the proper manner by which it was taught."

On an advanced training, sometime later, we were doing a controlled experiment on bi-location, working in groups of three people. We were all laughing and having great time. Our group of three selected our bi-location destination as Glastonbury Tor, winter solstice 2012, 5th dimension. Our task .... "observe." We were all up-for-it, and perhaps with high energy we were not taking it so seriously. Nobody was allowed to speak or confer until feedback. Without exception, everyone returned back to 3D with an overwhelming sense of pathos, some in tears, not just our small group of 3, but the other groups too! What had happened? What had we witnessed?

The descriptions were so profound, so similar, and of such awesome proportion. The insights were immense and effects remain with me/us, suffice to say that anyone who does not believe they have a crucial part to play in this critical time of transition is either ignorant or in denial. It's too important NOT to take personal responsibility, each for ourselves.

Having said that, there's lots of joyous journeys we talk about and share, with MerKaBa meditation.

Once the pineal is reactivated all sorts of memories return. For example, a Dutch woman and I recalled our lives together as dolphins. Yes, that's right, dolphins, I had a problem with that one too! Now she's no 'fruitcake', she's a successful business woman at first was reluctant to share her version of our lives together, until she knew that my experience was the same. Our love for each other now in 3D is just as acquaintances, our dolphin love for each other was so immense it could swallow the whole universe!

But it's not all about two star-tetrahedrons and a spinning disc, there's much to say about the sacred toroidal shapes and their profound meaning, too much to go into here on this blog posting .....

And so the stories continue.

That's why I say only learn/use your MerKaBa IF you want to experience life in a completely different way. There's no going back, it's awakened the core of your being.

"See you inner-space!"
