My Adventures with
Personal Stories of Working with Subtle Energies
During the early training phase by John U.K., I was on a diligent quest to find a new religion or group of people with similar beliefs as I had. I had been raised in a very religious home and community so finding a new religious organization seemed natural. At that time, I was clueless in how to live without a community that wasn't based on a religion. It was all I knew.
John U.K. politely sat back and patiently waited for me to travel this path and have some experiences. I continued to study religious books. He would say, “how does it feel?” I would then sit back and tune into my feelings. I was surprised how empty I was left after reading these books. I felt totally unsatisfied, almost as if I had been feeding on air rather than food.
I later learned that part of these feelings was my awareness that was coming from the energy of my 2nd chakra. I was learning that the 2nd chakra energy was helping me to discern truth. As a teacher, you allow the student to make have their own experiences and they often make mistakes. It is during these times that lessons can be learned. John U.K, was using this technique to help me learn to discern my feelings when I came across truth and compare it to those feelings when I felt empty.
We would discuss the information in these books and I would argue how this book had millions of followers. John U.K.'s response was, "but how did it make you feel?" I learned it didn't matter if there were followers or not. Truth was truth.
John U.K. used my feelings of when I found something empty and would compare it to those moments when I came across a nugget of truth. The starkness and contrast of my feelings surprised me. When I found something true, it was as if my heart would soar and I knew deep inside it could not be shaken. The contrast was the emptiness when coming across something that was just hollow words.
For me, this was a startling revelation of how powerful feelings could be to help a person discern truth. John UK's comparative exercise was a very effective lesson. Over the years I have read many, many books about religion and spirituality but have found only a handful that even whisper, let alone speak the language to my soul.
If you are pursuing the energy of growing the second chakra, and want to develop and nurture your ability to discern truth, there are many tools available to help you cultivate that energy. In addition, you will also need to tune into your feelings and learn to translate the messages that are coming to your soul. You do this be being aware of your feelings.
I first met Steven at the airport in Detroit. He was with a bunch of guys in the Delta Crown Room and I was there waiting for my flight back to Utah. Steven kept on looking over at me, like he knew me. I was starting to get a bit uncomfortable. Finally he came over and said the standard line of “don’t I know you from somewhere?” I laughed and said “no”. He kept on asking questions to find out where our paths could have met. He sold yachts and boats in Florida. I lived in Utah and was in health care. There was absolutely no place or way, we could have ever connected before.
A few weeks later he tracked me down. This was rather surprising since I had only shared the name of the company I worked at and my first name. He wanted to let me know why he was so insistent on connecting with me - he told me about “Locks” and how he was a "Lock" and had been alive since well before the birth of the United States. This would have made him over 200 years old. He looked to be around my age, which was around 40 years old at that time. I was skeptical. He continued, saying he had personally known George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, in fact called them a bunch of hoodlums and laughed stating that history had become rather kind to them. "Being a 'Lock'", he said, "meant he was supposed to stay alive until the next 'Lock' came, which was expected after about 200 years. He said he had been told he would be made aware of the new 'Lock' when he met this person, and THIS is why he was so insistent on meeting me; I was the new Lock!
"WHAT? I am not a Lock! nor do I want to hang around for 200 years," I thought.
Steven, however, was so excited about this because now he could be NORMAL! To be a Lock, his metabolic time had been SLOOOOOOWED so he could live centuries. It was as if his body was on a different type of clock. outlive everyone, serving as kind of a point person to observe and report on changes in humanity within the USA over the centuries. He had watched his wife get old and die, as well as his children get old and die, and how he had to keep moving from city to city and leaving loved ones behind over and over and over again because he could not age, nor could he share the reason why he didn't age and the role he had assumed.
The purpose of a' Lock' is to help provide feedback regarding the timeline. It is a way to have a long-term "constant" there to assess the outcome of certain events that are transpiring on the Prime Radiant. John U.K. verified that yes, indeed, there were people who served in this role and were known as 'Locks" or 'time travelers'. Having volunteers serve in this role helped with assessments, evaluations, and future predictions.
John U.K. continued, "There have been tales of people who never age throughout the world, even the story of , and there has been some truth to many of those stories."
Since the Prime Radiant changed since this original meeting with Steven, and also now that we have the Shialude energy and are more able to move easily through time and dimensions, we no longer NEED someone to serve as a lock. More people now have the skills and abilities to travel through time, and as such, can more easily report and assess what is happening in the Prime Radiant.
I have not seen nor heard from Steven again, and I am not planning to stick around for a couple of hundred years. I'm absolutely relieved the role of the 'Lock' has changed and improved in my generation.
Before John UK left, he said he would send crows as a visual reminder when he was near. Whenever I see these lovely black birds, I think of John U.K. This has become a way he sometimes sends that physical reminder he is near, or comfort, or even an awareness I am not alone.
When I got divorced and relocated to California, John U.K. told me he and my other Spiritual Guides would provide special protection for my children and would also step in and help in ways they could help. Years later, my son introduced me to the woman he had met and fallen in love with. Her last name was "Crow". I immediately knew John U.K. had a hand in this matchmaking connection. It was a type of validation that all was well.
Sometimes these types of subtle messages can provide comfort and support that may never come in any other way.
John U.K. once said that birds are often used as a means of messaging the physical from the astral. Birds can be prompted to be at a certain place, or act a certain way, as if to alert of message a person on the physical plane. For example, John U.K. said that when I see a bluebird, for example, I should consider this a message of love being sent.
He also shared that some on the astral plane have used birds to be a representation of themselves. For example, John U.K. chose the to represent him. He said my bird was the eagle, and Rob's bird is the swan. But the next day he said Rob's bird is the owl. I thought it was strange that John U.K. changed the bird representation for Rob, but later, when it was more obvious that Rob's body was a type of portal where different souls could come into and temporarily stay in his body, it made sense. This was John's way of letting me know that the bird sign could change for a person, depending on which soul was housed in that body.
Some time after this conversation with John U.K. about birds and their messages, I was on a little off-road exploratory jaunts with my daughter and were cusping a small hill. Suddenly, we saw over a dozen turkey buzzards perched on many of the fence posts. We pulled over and paused to observe these birds because it appeared as if the birds had been staged and waiting for us. All at once, all of the turkey buzzards stretched out their wings in perfect unison and held that outstretched pose for several minutes. It was as if this moment was one of those bird communication moments.
Of course, this moment of stretching their wings could have been they all needed to cool off at the same time. But because of my bird conversation with John U.K., I couldn't help but interpret this to be some type of message. I thought it was a moment of honoring the presence of my daughter. Even now, when I think of this moment, it still makes me smile.
Just as you can train yourself to travel to the astral plane, you can also train yourself to travel to other planes of the Tao, too. The first time I successfully traveled to the mid-causal plane, when I woke up, I felt like my body was very, very, very heavy. In fact, I could not even open my eyes for a long time, let alone move. It took me a few hours to get back to normal. This initial side affect was rather surprising, but eventually I got the hang of it and no longer have those affects.
Traveling to the Tao level has been the most elusive of inter-level travel. John U.K. described visiting the Tao, like waiting for a delicate string to appear and then connecting with it to reach the Tao. He also described the strings as being similar to delicate arrays of light.
John UK, a mid-causal teacher, provided lessons on astral travel. This is a summary of a conversation regarding some of my initial sensations after an astral travel experience.
John: Can you describe your feelings and sensations?
Me: I have two different feelings. One is a feeling slipperiness or having no friction. It felt like the glossiness of a book. The other sensation was of seeing bright speckles.
John: What about your feelings?
Me: I am feeling refreshed.
John: Now, when one travels to the astral plane, their spirit or energy body is of course traveling to the astral level as if in flight. But the sensation of being slippery or passing smoothly through this physical plane is a common sensation as well. This is the sensation of the spirit body as it progresses to the astral level.
Now, this feeling of slipperiness is not the physical sensations that you may suppose, for the energy body and the physical plane (earth) are on different levels. But the analogy of your physical body immersed in water and that feeling of weightlessness and yet passing through a medium is appropriate. True, you may feel weightless, but also as your mind becomes more accepting and your recall better, different sensations will stand out at different times. On this occasion, your recall was of the passage through the astral level, the same as passing through water. When swimming under water, you feel weightless and notice the passage of fluid around you. Usually you only concentrate on one or the other.
Now, the speckles. Do you have any impressions about meeting anyone or thing? The question I am asking is, did you feel you met fragments on the astral level.
John: Did you feel that there were many or simply a few?
Me: Simply a few.
John: Your intuitive feelings tell you the impression of the speckles.
Me: A representation of the fragments of the Tao, or souls.
John: Yes. Their energy or their points of light that they radiate.
Me: Why did I meet them?
John: The astral level is similar to the physical, in at times you may meet several or many, or none. The comparison being a small group, a city, or the desert. Let’s discuss the astral plane. There are several levels within the astral plane. The Higher Self being on the level closer to the earthly plane. You perhaps passed the lower level after meeting your Higher Self and went into a higher level, there meeting the fragments, for generally unless there is a purpose, fragments and Higher Selves do not usually mingle.
John: Was the sensation of being slippery during the same episode as your sparkles?
John: Now, if the slippery feeling is the energy body passing through the astral levels, can you infer any insights from this knowledge?
Me: Passing from one level to another?
John: The experience is this. You traveled to the first level of the astral plane and after experiencing your Higher Self you proceeded upward into the next level where you experienced, but did not communicate, with several different fragments. The sensations that were different in this experience were the ones that you recalled, that of passing from one level to the next and associating with several fragments or energy bodies.
The experiences you have progressed through are very unique and different for the energy body. Therefore, it having experienced these does not wish to push the bounds too far and simply enjoys and learns from the things accomplished so far. With further experiences and deeper travels, the communication with the fragments can be possible if they wish it.
John UK (my Spiritual Guide and Teacher) once commented how he enjoyed the music by Elvis. He also shared how Elvis (who is dead) would at times perform on the astral plane to the delight of many who are on that plane of existence.
That off-the-cuff comment created a new image in my mind about the astral plane. It helped me realize the astral plane was probably not that different from the physical plane we know.
A guest on one of Oprah Winfrey's talk show, recommended training yourself to remember your dreams.
“This is one way to tap into your subconscious and get more insight into what is going on within you as well as your life,” said the guest.
I had finished nursing school and was very interested in learning more about the subconscious.. I also wanted to learn how to access and use the subconscious mind to tap into hidden resources I had, but was probably not using. So, I decided to try to train my mind to remember my dreams and started to write them down.
As I got more proficient in remembering my dreams, I then had dream that changed my life. In this dream I saw three huge letters spread broadly across my mind as if it were a canvas; E – S – P. I woke up and knew this was a VERY significant. I felt an urgency, if you will, to learn more about ESP - Extra Sensory Perception because of this brief dream of 3 letters painted in my mind, in a dream.
I bought the book “ESP” by Jane Roberts and she recommended using a Ouija Board to communicate and receive messages from a nonphysical world. She also recommended doing it with a partner, and my husband agreed to join me in this new adventure.
After about 20 minutes of sitting there with a Ouija board on our lap, with each of us holding a finger on the planchette and waiting, the planchette then started to slowly move.
It went to the letter “H”.
It then went to the letter “E”
"Are you doing this?” I asked my spouse.
“No,” he said. “Are you?”
“No,” I said.
It continued to spell out “L”, then “L”, then “O”.
The word was “H-E-L-L-O!”
I then asked, “Who are you?”
“J-O-H-N-U-K” it spelled out.
“Johnuk?” I asked.
“U-N-I-T-E-D-K-I-N-G-D-O-M” was then slowly spelled out.
This was how we met our Spiritual Guide and Teacher, John U.K, a nonphysical Being who connected and communicated to us through spelling out different words on a Ouija board.
This began a significant turning point in our lives, first with a significant dream, and then being guided to learn about Extra Sensory Perception. A new door opened and we began exploring this new realm of existence.
This experience also helped me be more aware of the different types of dreams - there are some that significant and can be life changing moments. These are the ones you pay particular attention to because they can be dreams about your future, or dreams to warn you, or comforting dreams, or dreams to help steer you on the life path you need to take.
For me, learning to tune in and pay attention to my dreams has been a way to not only increase the communication and connection with the nonphysical realm, it has been a resource to help me better understand it.
I was in Chinese Medicine school and learning about acupuncture points and channels. The topic was about how the entire human body could be represented in certain regions of the body. For example, the whole representation of the human body can be made on a hand, the foot, or the ear, or the face. These regions were considered to be a microcosm of the human body. The instructor then said, "And we are microcosm of the Earth."
When I heard this phrase, "we are a microcosm of the Earth," everything around me seemed to stop. My heart stated to race as if my mind was opening up and saying "here is the answer to your questions". I knew about Earth energy centers and conduits from John U.K., but now I was hearing how we are a representation of the earth, which means that not only does our body have energy centers, conduits, and portal (called acupuncture points and meridians), it means we can move through these portals as a ways to heal AND we can also move through portals to any dimension, layer of the Tao, or anywhere in time.
It also provided an answer to my question about how John U.K. (and other Spiritual Beings) was able to share my husbands body - one would come and one would leave through one of the portals in his body.
John U.K. introduced us to a visitor from ancient Egypt. This man was a barber. I jokingly asked him if he would be willing to cut my hair and he agreed. He didn't ask for scissors - he took a candle, lit it, and then guided the flame along the bottom of my hair to singe it. This was how hair was cut in ancient Egypt and he expertly did this without burning me.
This whole experience was so secular in nature. It wasn't a spiritual experience at all. And, it was so unexpected.
The lesson I learned from this experience was how anyone along the continuum of time could be brought in. I also became aware of how even the past felt like it was "now". I also was starting to see how everything is connected.
This was a brief moment, but a seed became planted in this encounter. I am now aware this interaction to this ancient past helped us connect the energy of the new Prime Radiant way back to that ancient time. It seems all these brief meetings had a greater purpose than I originally understood.
During the time I was being taught about spiritual energy tools and gifts, one of the tools I was learning was about ritual. John suggested we visit a place known as "Michael's Temple" to participate in a ritual ceremony. I was scared and excited about this opportunity. I was half expecting a place of wonder, filled with a gaggle of angels singing. I did not share this with John U.K. - these were my own private expectations which I now see rooted from my religious upbringing.
John advised us to go to Southern Utah, near Grosvenor Arch, and from there, he directed us down another dirt road where we parked the car, got out, and then started walking a few miles in a dry dirt river bed. I was hot, tired, and now very sweaty.
Eventually we climbed up some natural rock steps and came to a dead end. We were now surrounded by red rock on three sides. We did have an open sky and the ground was a soft, cool, and sandy. It was not what I expected. It was very simple. There were no angels, no majestic gold plated walls, no God, and no music. It was just us sitting in the shade of a a simple cavern of red rock.
We sat and waited. John U.K. then communicated with us saying this was an earth energy site. He called this place "Michael's Temple" and expressed how he want us to come here for two reasons;
We both said "yes". That was essentially it.
This experience taught me a few things.
Pontius Pilot was the governor who ruled over Judea and was the judge at the trial of Jesus of Nazareth. It was recorded that Pontius avoided taking responsibility for the death of Jesus, even though he had the power to grant him freedom. It is said that Pontius even washed his hands at the trial, demonstrating how he was making his hands clean from what happened next, which was the crucifixion of Jesus.
John U.K shared how there are many souls who will often go to Judea to try and find Jesus after they die, but instead of finding Jesus, they will discover Pontius Pilot. It seems that Pontius enjoys stepping in and giving these souls his personal account of what happened at the trial, along with doing his reenactment of how he washed his hands and removed all responsibility for Jesus's fate.
John U.K. went on to say that most souls will usually reincarnate and return back to earth after about 200 years from their prior incarnation, but not Pontius Pilot. He has not reincarnated since the time of Jesus. What I learned from this little sharing of information about Pontius Pilot was
It was the start of the Christmas season and John U.K. offered to take over the holiday cheer. The burden of decorating, preparing the food, and wrapping the gifts was suddenly removed and I felt the weight of being the family glue suddenly shared. I had my own business at that time and was not flush with cash, but we came up with a few extra dollars which he took to the craft store, carefully selecting items for his decorating task. I could not see how any of his selected items could be used for Christmas decorations, but he ignored my questions and focused on the task at hand.
John UK parked himself in the living room, and all of his attention and effort was directed at decorating the room for the holiday. I returned hours later and the living room had been changed and was magical! Garlands with bright lights had been strung from each wall and crossed in the middle of the tall vaulted ceiling, giving the impression we were in the woods. Cute little birds were wired to the garlands as if they were alive and part of our delightful tree house. The room was beautiful. The whole atmosphere at home changed and we all immediately fell into a cheerful holiday spirit. The home and family had become quickly transformed through this effort.
I asked John what he was planning for the holidays on the astral plane. I said this as a joke 'cause I didn't think there would be celebrations on the astral plane.
"I'm hiding Jesus" he said.
"What?" I said.
"It's my turn to hide Jesus." he continued. "We take turns each year to hide him from the groupies during these holidays. Christmas is really difficult on him. There are a lot of groupies on the astral who want to meet Jesus and are constantly looking for him, but this holiday is particularly bad. Also, thoughts you have on the physical also have energy, and so during this holiday season, more people are praying to Jesus, thinking of Jesus, singing to Jesus, and all that subtle thought energy is directed to Jesus on the astral plane. It is VERY difficult on a soul.
This comment was quite the eye opener for me. I had never considered the consequences of fame beyond the grave and also the impact of thoughts even beyond the physical plane.
I asked John if it would help if Jesus would reincarnate, and then he would have a layer of protection around his soul - a different personality and new identify, if you will.
John said, "Yes, that could help, but the first few incarnations after this type of life are VERY difficult. The person can still feel and sense the thoughts, prayers, words, and then hearing the stories on the physical would be a recognition they are HIS words. But he would not have the understanding of the prior incarnation, per se, to make sense of what is going on. It often results in a type of mental breakdown.
He went on to tell me that Joseph Smith, the Mormon prophet, reincarnated as a woman after his death. He is now living in a remote area of China in part, so he could start creating those layers of protection around him to help protect him from those on seeking the Mormon prophet. He also chose a location that would not be available for Mormon missionaries, This would protecting him from the familiarity and angst she would sense if hearing those Mormon stories.
This little glimpse into reincarnation, activities on the astral plane, groupies, and how our thoughts have energy, made an impression on me. My perception about the after life started to change with this conversation.
