My Adventures with
Personal Stories of Working with Subtle Energies
I was raised as a Mormon in Utah, growing up with the story about Joseph Smith visiting a sacred grove in Palmyra, New York, to ask about which church to join. In that grove, he interacted and communed with spiritual beings, who gave him the advice and answers he sought. The real story for me was more about how there are places a person can visit, interact, see, and even commune directly with spiritual beings. This concept led me (and others) to test out this concept about how there are locations where the earth and heaven are so close, you can actually see and interact with Spiritual Beings.
After meeting John U.K., a spiritual being who taught me lessons to help me use and interact with spiritual energy, he had me explore the national parks, state parks, and land managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Utah. In this period of training, we would drive, hike, or boat, to places and then pause when we felt a concentrations of life force energy. When we could FEEL a change within ourselves, we stopped. It would feel like 'happiness', or 'joy', or 'wonder', or 'love' - almost like getting an extra 'helping of goodness'. When we came upon those earth energy sites, it was there where we would have some rather unique spiritual experiences. In some locations, we could meet and interact with spiritual beings. At other locations, the energy was conducive to regress to the past, or sense the future. In other locations, the energy was such that being able to project and visit other dimensions was possible.
The results of these explorations taught me about how there are many locations and pockets of concentrated life force energy. These locations can be used for different spiritual purposes and desires. In some places, the energy is so vibrant, it doesn't matter what time of day or season to use that energy. In other places, it is seasonal. Still others, the energy can only be used at sunrise or sunset.
When a person decides to start using spiritual energy to expand their life experiences, a whole new world of possibility opens up and the discovery of what works and doesn't work, becomes part of the adventure. Locating places that have an abundance of life force energy can open new doors of wonder to explore.
You can learn more about earth energy centers and the types of spiritual experiences a person can have at those locations, in my book, Cultivating Spiritual Energy.
There are places in the earth where the life force energy is so rich and strong, the astral plane and the physical plane touch. It is almost as if there is no separation between those two fields and with this closeness, you can more easily see and even converse with Spiritual Beings. In fact, the locals all talk about the hidden people who are everywhere - and they are. Many can see and converse with these Spiritual Beings.
The life force energy is so plentiful and strong, it is a natural earth energy center. In earth energy centers, with this abundance life force energy, it is much easier to have deep and meaningful meditations. It is also much easier to engage in astral travel/projection because the astral plane is "right here". In addition, all those various subtle energy communication methods are easier too - like meaningful and detailed significant dreams as well as telepathy. I was in total amazement how easy it was to use the spiritual development tools and have spiritual experiences while in Iceland.
There are many earth energy spots around the globe. Most of these spots are in remote areas, making it somewhat challenging to find as well as get to. I was absolutely surprised and delighted to experience Iceland's rich life force energy. Being there, was an energetic and life changing experience for me.
As you tune in and learn to sense subtle energy, over time your abilities expand to not only sense this subtle energy, but also to recognize differences in these subtle energies - like the different TYPES,or qualities, or aspects of the energy. It is then when you move into going in even deeper, and can then start to sense different types of MESSAGES within that energy field.
For example, when I first started to be aware of earth energy and hearts, I then started to train myself to sense where some of these places were. I initially focused on when and where my feelings changed in different areas of nature. With more practice and experience, I improved to not only sense WHERE an earth energy site was, but also what type of vibe it produced. For example, in some areas I could become very serene, tranquil, quiet, and relaxed - almost as if I was being comforted. In other sites, I was able to "see" Spiritual Beings, and even at some locations, I was able to move through time and regress to a different time period.
In a recent visit at an earth energy new Mount Shasta in Northern California, I had a totally new experience. This happened during a meditation, and in the meditation, I could FEEL a change happening inside and around me. It was as if I was becoming a ROCK - like granite! In the meditation, I observed my skin and body now looking like it was made up of gray granite. I then remembered a Nature video I saw where plants seemed to communicate with other plants to let them know they were in need of a certain nutrient. THEN, the plants with that nutrient would SEND the plant in need, that specific nutrient. I then had the impression the earth was sharing its rock-like SUBTLE energy with me, as a GIFT. Perhaps this was a nutrient I needed?
At the end of the meditation, I looked at my arms and legs - they were normal. All of this imagery was shared in a meditation, and in an earth energy center. I was aware this was a deeper type of sensing subtle energy - a message was being shared.
One year I went on vacation with my son on the back of his Harley motorcycle. We went up the coast of California and Oregon; he was driving and I was hanging on the back, grinning from ear to ear. What surprised me about this trip, however, was how I could feel the dramatic changes in temperature from one spot to another as we road up the coast. It was as if we were journeying through different little climate pockets along the highway, and they would quickly change from one spot to another. It was an amazing variety of temperatures.
In a way, it was reminiscent of when I was learning to sense earth energy centers. An earth energy center is where there are pockets of consolidated life force energy. Because of the abundance of subtle energy in those areas, it is must easier to have spiritual experiences. For example, you can more easily meet and converse with Spiritual Beings in those earth energy centers because there is enough available energy for Spiritual Beings to project themselves to you. Or you can more easily travel to the astral plane in those locations because you can tap in and use that life force energy to get you out of your body.
When John U.K. was training me to sense earth energy centers, he would have me tune into my feelings, ward and identify any changes of feelings as we walked or moved along a path or roadway. It became a way to identify when and where there was a change in my feelings and this could serve as a type of GPS to guide me towards an earth energy center. With practice, I learned that when I felt a feeling of "peace and oneness that almost forced me to smile" was a way that I could begin to identify where there was a consolidation of earth energy, or an earth energy heart center.
As I road on the back of the Harley, and sensed the microclimate bursts of changing temperatures, it made me smile. I was once again tuning into different sensations, but this time, it was just the wind.
I admit it has been difficult to watch where Mr Trump is taking us, but also to see how many people are acquiesing and cheering him on. Those who had been appalled at his behaviors are now kindly looking the other way, hoping to collect some of the money and power crumbs that fall from the table. It has actually been heartbreaking. But in my meditations, I'm consistently reminded that the goal is NOT stability, but the awakening of people's spirit. Who the person in power is, and what he does is not the end goal. There are things that would make life better, or more fair and equitable, for more people, but sometimes the path changes to require hardship, challenges, chaos, and death. Why? Because it serves as way for people to learn and discover who they really are.
I recently read a book by Hank Wesselman called "Spiritwalker; Messages from the Future" because the authors experience of being able to project through time was different from my personal expeirences. Mr Wesselman was able to connect to someone - his decendent, who is living 5,000 years into the future, living in what we could consider California, but living in more of a primitive culture with no technology, no electricity, no metal, and an awareness that America had fallen.
But what I got out of this book was a message of hope - the world doesn't completely end - it continues. Yes, America falls, and yes there is global warming with its rising seas that drown islands, change the landscape of the world, and the global climate, but there are a few people who survive!
The other thing that struck me in his story, is that the people who DO survive have a strong connection to the spirit and spiritual energy. Many are awakened! It was this awareness that has brought me the most comfort. After all, the overall goal is the awakening of the spirit - and it appears that this goal gets achieved.
Mount Hood is a National Forest, about an hour outside of Portland, Oregon. It is part of a string of volcanic mountains that are peppered along the Pacific coastal states.
I recently visited this national forest with a desire to focus on the "feelings" and the life force energy of this area. I wanted to determine what type of subtle energy is there that could be tapped in and used to amplify a person's spiritual experiences.
I arrived at Mount Hood in a pouring rain storm, and visited several places around the forest and mountain to see if I could feel that special "earth energy." I didn't feel that unique and special energy, however, which surprised me.
I wondered if I was not feeling it was because it was cold and rainy. I tried again the next day, and the following day, when there was better weather, but again didn't feel that special vibe.
Hmmm. I was surprised. I had expected to find this area filled with an abundant amount of life force energy, I also had assumed that because it was forged by the inner earth (volcanos) it probably had an energy frequency most closely associated with the energy of "grounding" or the "first chakra". But I was wrong. I felt nada.
I was reminded that earth energy sites can be seasonal, meaning the site is only an "earth energy site" during a particular season. Perhaps this was not the season where this type of earth energy could be felt? Also, some sites can change their heart centers based on the time of day, and other sites can have the earth energy even relocate to very remote an inaccessible areas if they feel it is necessary. I wondered if this was the case at Mount Hood. The other possibility was that it just wasn't an earth energy location.
In one of my meditations, however, I did feel a connection to the same female presence I felt at Lassen National Park, but here at Mount Hood, the energy was more like a distant whisper, which to me, meant it was not very strong and vibrant like I felt at Lassen National Park.
I concluded that for this time of year, anyway, this area wasn't an earth energy site. Sometimes you find treasures of vibrant life force energy in unexpected places, and other times, you don't. Many of the national parks and forests are earth energy sites, but unfortunately, I didn't feel it at Mount Hood - at this time- anyway.
There are areas around the earth that are called earth energy centers, where there is a greater concentration of life force energy. Not only do these places give off a good feel, they also provide the energies to facilitate having some rather unique spiritual experiences. In these places of more concentrated life force energy, it is often easier to communicate with your Higher Self, or see and interact with a Spiritual Being, or to project your soul and visit the astral plane, or even different time periods. In the USA, many of the places that have a greater amount of life force energy happen to be in or around the National Parks.
Recently, I have been visiting some of these parks to help direct subtle energies to continue to protect these sacred areas. Congress, for example, has been trying to pass bills to privatize these parks so they can sell them to developers. If this would happen, these places that often have special spiritual energy, would be lost. Their concentrated subtle energies would relocate and be lost to us.
When I arrived at Lassen Volcanic National Park in Northern California, I anticipated tapping into the subtle energy at this location to direct some of its use to one of protection. This was my plan, but when I started the meditation, things changed. I suddenly could sense a VERY STRONG energetic male presence - an energy that was dominating and much in control. I was not afraid - it was just his energy was so YANG-like. I was thinking of how to bless this area, when in my mind, I could hear hi voice now communicating in my mind, telling me that protecting this area was not be necessary, This area, filled with volcanoes and movement of the earth, was very much in charge of its own protection. The greater good would be to protect humanity. In my mind, I was made aware that it is humankind that needs to learn to live in harmony with the earth if it is to continue to live on the earth.
I then journeyed to the other side of the park and did another meditation. During THIS meditation, I felt a very strong female presence. The stark difference in the energy surprised me. This presence was very YIN-like - soft, smooth, gentle, and even a bit mothering. The information I received from THIS presence was about how this National Park's energy is one based on HARMONY and BALANCE. There was both the yang and yin- like energies here - a representation of balancing energies. Balancing energy is a part of the 4th chakra energy, which means this National Park would be a good place to use the spiritual gift of command projection.
I left this National Park with a greater appreciation of how every National Park may have a different type of subtle energy and with those different frequencies and patterns, what a person experiences at that location, will probably be aligned with the energetic vibe within that earth energy area.
I've been doing energetic earth healings as my way to help improve the health and wellness of the planet. I have been using a technique of visiting different locations, and leaving my essence in a certain location to serve as an "anchor point" for when I do a type of qigong earth healing meditation.
Recently I was at Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia, Canada, and was sitting on a bench by the lighthouse, doing a meditation. In this meditation I was creating an anchor point for this location where I visualize leaving some of my spiritual subtle energy at this earth energy site. At the end of my meditation, I thought I could send some of the lovely spiritual energy from this location TO some other places around the globe, so I started a new meditation. In this new meditation, I visualized directing energy from Peggy's Cove to other anchor points I set up around the globe. I then visualized my home's anchor point in Northern California and was surprised at this meditation visual. I saw a BRIGHT WHITE/GOLD radiant silhouette of a person sitting on my couch in a meditative pose, in my home in California. I could also see a radiant light coming out of this person and filling the whole room with a warm radiant glow! This surprised me. It was so unexpected, and different from what I saw and felt in all the other anchor points.
I then realized the reason why I saw my essence at my anchor point in my home, and why it was so strong was because I use that spot almost daily. With such repeated use, the essence of my energy at this location grows and gets stronger each time I meditate.
This experience of connecting, seeing, and feeling my essence and the energy it has created in my home in California, while I was physically located in Canada, helped me realize the impact our own energy can make on a space. It also helped validate how the subtle energy of a location can change, grow, and improve with repeated use from focused intent and visualization. It also helped me see how connecting from a different point of view, from the point in Canada for example, help me see the energy pattern and energy frequencies from afar that I could not sense or see close up.
This was one of those powerful learning moments in my life. This experience made quite an imprint on me because of the feelings and the radiance I felt from viewing my own essence.
One way a person can help the earth is to direct one's focused thoughts of healing, protection, and love to the earth. This can be done in a meditation or in a ritual. With recent Congressional threats to sell and privatize the National Parks in the USA, I decided to direct some of my focused healing attention towards the National Parks so these sacred spaces in the earth can continue to be preserved and protected.
On a recent visit to Acadia National Park (which is situated along the Atlantic Ocean in Maine), and then a visit the following week to Point Reyes National Park (which is on the Pacific Ocean in Northern California), I engaged in meditative efforts to direct and send focused thoughts of love, protection, and healing to these National Parks. In the meditation, a visual was displayed in my mind, and I could see an active flow of energy between these two National Parks. I had a sense of comfort envelop me with an awareness these parks are protected.
One of the lessons John U.K. stressed was to learn how to sense and feel. He would often ask, "how does it feel?" and in this processing of asking, it provided a redirect to tune in and analyze the current feelings and sensations.
John U.K. would also use this same technique of tuning in and "feeling" when we visited different physical locations and would once again, "how does it feel at this location?" We would then pause and tune into the feelings of the different areas. Eventually we learned that different areas had a different feel. Sometimes we would return to that same spot, and the feeling would be different from what we experienced last time. This helped us learn that in SOME places, the energies change with the seasons, or the time of day, and some places have "moving energy centers" that move to other locals based on human activity.
Often it was the National Parks that had a more consistent good energy feel. This was partly due to them being a protected space, but also because someone many generations ago, had "awakened" the energy there and this is what led it to becoming a National Park.
When we visited Bryce Canyon, a National Park in Utah, we were aware the energy there was not as strong as some of the other Utah National Parks in Utah. We asked John U.K. why the energy there was kind of "ho hum." and he responded that it had not yet been awakened. He then said we could awaken the energy at Bryce Canyon with a focused meditation, using command projection. We did so, and awakened the subtle spiritual energy of the Bryce Canyon area. Years later we returned and were rather surprised how INTENSE the feeling now was. We could both FEEL the intensity of the subtle energies. This area was indeed, now awakened.
There are different locations on the earth that are known as earth energy sites. At these locations there is a greater amount as well as a greater purity of life force energy. Many of these sites also can "specialize" in a certain energy frequency, or type of energy. Some of these locations can make it easier to travel to the astral plane, for example. Some of these locations can have an energy vibration or frequency that makes it easier to connect with your Higher Self, or other Spiritual Beings, or to move through time. Some locations can even serve as sites that are more conducive for healings, too.
One of the things I have learned in 'trial and error' process is that when you go to an earth energy site, it is important to take time there, pause, and REALLY get connected with the energy in that location. When you take time to have this place become a "moment" that seems to burn in your soul, it becomes a type of a permanent marker that can help you recall, and then re-tap into that same energy later.
For example, years ago, I had several very significant spiritual experiences in the red rock areas of Southern Utah and Lake Powell, but since I relocated away from this area, I no longer have that easy access to many of those earth energy sites. But I found a way to use those sites, even though I now no longer am physically close to that area. Now days I go into a meditative state and focus my thoughts and attention to the earth energy location I want to connect with. I see the location in my mind. I then bring back the visuals from my memories, the feelings, the smells, things i touched, the sounds everything from that place that is stored in my soul. Once I have established that connection and can feel the change of energy within me as I connect to that location, when I get the sense I can tap into the earth energy at that site, I then mentally connect with that energy frequency or vibration and mentally use and direct it for what I need. At times I have done this to travel to the past (or the future), or to conduct earth healings, or to meet Spiritual Beings. This is something one can do if you are unable to return to an earth energy location but you need a certain type of energy to conduct or complete one of the spiritual tasks you feel needs completion.
In a remote area in the Great Basin of Skull Valley, Utah, is a little oasis called White Rocks. You would probably never know this little outbreak of rock, with its natural spring water, has an energetic link to Thomas Jefferson's former home in Monticello, Virginia. But it does. Even though these two locations look nothing alike, they still have a similar subtle energy frequency, and because of this, it was possible for someone to tap into the energy location at one of those locations and direct subtle spiritual energy through the conduit to the other location. And this is exactly what happened.
Thomas Jefferson, (1743-1825) was the principle author of the Declaration of Independence and lived in Monticello, Virginia. In his next incarnation, however, he was a Native American female by the name of Moapa, living in the Great Basin area of Nevada. In the lifetime as Moapa, she was able to create, direct, and send spiritual energy to her former self at White Rocks and assist that lifetime when she/he was Mr. Jefferson. She created and directed spiritual energy (using spiritual development tools) to assist, fortify, and help her former self in that important lifetime.
John U.K. brought me to this White Rock oasis and gave me a lesson on earth energy sites and earth energy conduits and channels. This lesson provided me information not only on how a person could direct spiritual energy to different sites in the earth (similar, in a way, to using and directing subtle energy through the human body's meridians and channels) but also that you could direct energy to a different TIME PERIOD.
This information opened a door of awareness as well as possibility. It would be possible to create and send energy through these conduits and channels and improve the past. Time was, or could be, fluid.
I became interested in ancient Indian ruins and petroglyphs after my regression experience at Buckhorn Wash. I learned that some the petroglyphs and pictographs from these ancient people were painted at earth energy sites and they recorded their spiritual experience on stone. It was similar to what I was doing with my journals, and then later, on with my blog.
John U.K., a Spiritual Being and Teacher, shared how petroglyphs can be interpreted in a similar manner to how one would interpret a dream - based on the symbols present in the display.
This is what John U.K. shared about the meaning of these symbols in THIS image at Buckhorn Wash:
This is a lovely YouTube video of Buckhorn Wash created by Rex Nye. It gives you a feel for this little corner of the world.
One of my very first experiences in an earth center provided me with an experience with a past life regression. I was engaged in a meditation in the San Rafael Swell in Southern Utah. I went into my meditation and saw several Native American women engaged in some type of ritual or dance just a few yards in front of me. I knew they were not from this time. I saw them look at me and were startled, which also told me they saw me as well. I then waved and said "hi". The whole experience only lasted a few minutes or maybe even less. I came out of the meditation and what I had seen was now gone.
John U.K., my Spiritual Guide and Teacher, said this had been a past life regression. I was able to connect to these people who were engaged in a spiritual activity at this same site several hundred years ago. This happened because I was at an earth energy center, I was engaged in a spiritual activity (meditation), and some how tapped into the energy frequency of this past event and with this group of people. These people were also at this same earth energy site and were also engaged in a spiritual activity (a ritual). For some reason we connected for that brief moment. Perhaps because we were all ready for this type of experience.
At this location is an ancient petroglyph that records this experience (as well as others) with this Native American group. The petroglyph shows a group of people engaging in an ritual and using the energy of the kundalini to experience an "out of body" type group experience, or an astral travel event. The group saw a distant figure (red arrow points to that image) represented by a small figure in the distance with wings, which is a symbol representing not of this time.
The chakra energy associated with this area was closely tied and associated with the third chakra. The spiritual gift associated with the third chakra is past life regression. I was able to travel to another point in time in the past and they were traveling to a point in their future.
This was my first experience of this type at an earth energy center and it demonstrated how different spiritual gifts can be tapped into and experienced at an earth energy site.
I have had a few Kundalini experiences in my life, and none was as remarkable to me as the first experience. But there was another experience that also very powerful as well as remarkable. In this experience I was meditating and felt a sudden and bound connection to mother earth. I turned my head to my left and I could see a miniature earth replica spinning right next to me. I could see "me" and also the earth, side by side, almost as if we were in two parallel situations. I could feel the energy within me rise, and I watched and I could also see the energy within the earth rise. We seemed to be mirroring each others meditation.
I felt the connection to the 2nd chakra, and then observed the earth's energy to rise to what I assumed could have been the earth's chakra as well. The earth was reflecting back what I was feeling and doing - or else I was reflecting back to the earth what the earth was doing. Needless to say, we were having the same experience.
This process continued with the energy rising and energizing each of my chakras, and with each, the energy also rose in the earth. Then, I could feel a kundalini happening within me. At the point of the energy shower, I could also "see" an energy shower with the earth occurring, too.
It was at the point of shower I felt an even stronger connection. I felt and saw a "circle 8" of energy going from the earth to me, and then from me to the earth. This sensation only lasted a few seconds, but the experience was different, remarkable, and powerful to me. I have only had this experience once. But after this occurrence I felt a stronger bind and connection with the Earth.
Later, when I studied Chinese Medicine, which in some ways is built on the premise we are a microcosm of the earth, that information seemed to penetrate my soul. I became aware of what and how we treat and interact with the earth is also how we treat and interact with ourselves. AND, just as we have the capability of healing our bodies, we also have the capability of healing the earth. This awareness was a game changer for me.
One morning long ago, I was doing one of my regular meditations where I sat in a chair, folded and crossed my legs, then closed my eyes. I took a couple of deep breaths and started to visualize a connection to the ground. When I ground, I focus my thoughts and visualize a root coming from the base of my spine and moving into the earth. The visual in my mind is similar to a root extending from a tree into the earth. I kept visualizing this root going down into the earth and was ready to stop this movement and begin my meditation, but the root would not stop! It kept on going and it was as if I was no longer in control of my thoughts. My thoughts were being directed by someone other than myself.
The image of the root kept going deep, deep, deep within the earth and I could not stop the root from advancing. I finally told myself to sit back and relax - someone was steering my meditation and to just accept it and let it happen.
Eventually the rooting stopped and I found I had been brought into a granite walled room. The whole room was granite walls, including the ceiling. The room was HUGE and it was well lit, yet, I could not see anything that was making it appear to be so bright. I knew I was somewhere deep in the earth, but here was a ROOM and it was LIT! I was amazed.
In the room were VERY TALL Beings, clothed and hooded, or that is how my mind interpreted the experience. I was made aware they were the Earth Guardians. There was also another Being there who communicated directly with me, and I to her. I became aware she was Gaia, or the energy who is mother earth. I don't recall any features - ONLY the FEELING and information placed in my mind during this encounter.
I was made aware we were just guests on her surface. She either allows us to be there, or doesn’t. I was also aware of the many times when we have killed off each other in times past, as well as annihilated the outer crust of the planet. In addition, I was made aware that her tolerance for us wanes and living on the earth's surface really is a gift she has given us.I also was made aware there are a HUGE number of different life forms on, and within the planet and we were just one of many. We were not better - we were just a different life form.
I also aware I could see in this room, even though there was no light. And I knew things, even though there was no sound…it was just awareness inside my mind.
Gaia wanted to know why I had changed the course we were on, and what benefit was I expecting out of this change of course (I had been conducting earth healing activities as well as sharing the shailude energy). I then explain the Harmonies and the new Shialude energy that had been introduced to help augment humanity's awareness as well as improve energetic communication, as well as growth. She seemed to be hesitant this would change the outcome, especially since we have been through this process so many times before and humanity always seemed to kill each other off. Other species have done better than humans, and yet we have this belief that being human is better. It isn’t better; it is just different. We have not yet figured out how to survive beyond this stage in our development, but she seemed interested to see if we could move beyond this phase we continually get stuck in.
I could also see how naive I had been regarding sending energy to the earth for healing. It was an interesting gesture to her; almost as if I was a superior shaman and granting her a gift where as she is the one who allows all of us to live on her “skin”. I felt small, and almost ashamed. I could see how a flick here, a turn there, or a focus on this has an outward effect to create great catastrophes for us, and should she desire, she could easily get rid of us all; an earthquake, a tornado, a title wave, a volcano. Such simple hiccups for her but such mighty acts of calamity for we humans.
She also wanted to know why the Harmonies came here to help. What do they hope to gain from this? I assumed because our demise affects the other Taos. I then thought a question about how she is connected to other Taos and what effect she has on the other Taos. But these were just thoughts that were there like a puff in the air, and then were gone. Nothing more was said or thought on this topic.
I then stopped the meditation. Not sure if this was my choice or Gaia’s or the Guardians. It then felt like a nonevent, which now that I think of it, reminds me of the movie “The Matrix” where Neo goes to visit the Oracle and then is given a cookie and told he will start to feel "right as rain". This scene made absolutely no sense to me when I saw the movie, but this is how I felt after this…like I had eaten a cookie and had no feelings one way or the other.
Since this experience, I have had several interactions with the Guardians of the Earth, and my awareness of the interconnection of life has grown. The experience of meeting Gaia was a life changing moment for me.
