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.
John UK once shared how we leave our energetic essence on the earth. This is why you can go to places and feel the presence of someone's life. For example, when I went to Jamestown, I was overwhelmed by the pain and suffering in that area. I had this same sensation, but even deeper, when I went to Gettysburg. I was picking up on the essence of those who had died and suffered in those locations.
This lesson expanded when I was visited by another Spiritual Being by the name of William. William and I did a mini road trip down Ogden, Utah canyon, and along the drive, he started to share with me the feelings of essence he was picking up. He was feeling the essence of those who had built the railroad in this canyon, and even shared the names of the men, and some of the conversations, fighting, and political maneuvers of the building of this railroad. I was amazed by this, especially since his former life had been in the Ukraine - he knew nothing about the USA nor this area. For me, this was another example of being able to sense the essence of a person who has left their emotional energy in the earth.
But when I visited Iceland, I had a totally new experience surrounding the topic of leaving an essence. While in Iceland, I was GIVEN, or acquired, strands of life force energy. I felt as if I was absorbing and taking on pure life force energy from the earth. It was a rather amazing sensation and experience and my thoughts were, "ahhh, this is the earth's essence!"
After I returned home, I a client asked for a remote Qigong healing treatment for his stroke and cancer problems, During his treatment, I was amazed how THIS NEW strand of energy (the one I collected or absorbed in Iceland) presented itself during the healing treatment, and was now shared, and absorbed by my client. My client, felt CHANGED after this treatment, and said, "Damn, I feel good!" He later visited his doctor, and shared how his doctor reported he could no longer find any cancer. This amazed me.
The journey to learn about essence energy has been long and broad, but now I have experienced we don't just leave our essence behind, we can also pick up the subtle energies of where we live and visit. This was a rather remarkable lesson learned.
This breaks my heart. The current President of the USA signed an executive order to remove the protections of many of the national monuments. MANY of these sites include areas that are sacred - meaning, they have a consolidation of life force energy that connects with other planes of existence. If these are destroyed, well, the special energy is GONE! It ain't coming back!

I recently had one of those unusual experiences with subtle energy. I was visited by "me" from sometime in the future. I have only had this experience one other time, when a "future me" came to advise me I needed to divorce and relocate from Utah to another state. This visit was to advise me to "ignore the current President for the next 6 months" and have no thoughts about him, but instead, redirect my thoughts and attention to visiting, interacting, connecting and sensing different energies in different spots on the earth - such as the National Parks and Monuments.
Having a "future me" come to give a message means this is rather a big deal and should not be ignored. I then started analyzing why this message was so important. I then realized that thoughts about "Mr. T" must be reinforcing his ability to continue to do more damage. After all, "our thoughts have energy" and even if our thoughts are negative, it is still subtle energy being directed towards a person, and it appears this person feeds off any type of energy, even if it is negative.
And why would these instructions from "my future self" have me focus on earth energy spots, like our national parks and monuments? Perhaps it is a way to help strengthen and protect these areas of the earth that are now being turned over to the private sector so some corporation can make a profit, drill for oil or gas, or even build condos. Or perhaps this is just going to be a way for me to improve my ability to sense different types of earth energies.
Needless to say, I'm now engaged in redirecting my attention away from the news and to visit different places around the globe that may have concentrations of life force energy and be "earth energy sites".
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.
Sometimes I will ponder a question for awhile and then may receive the answer in a dream. I had been pondering the concept of nonphysical, subtle, spiritual energy and how it can leave an imprint on something or even change us. If thoughts have energy, how does this work?
I then had a rather bothersome dream, but it did show me visuals of the how energy can and does change people, animals, and things. Here is that dream, along with its interpretation and insight.
The dream began in a slaughterhouse. There was a short male worker who seemed a bit “off”…perhaps slow or retarded at times and other times becoming extroverted and flamboyant. The foreman and others were accepting of this man’s changed behaviors and expressions. The foreman was slaughtering a calf, and the calf was still alive, but the fur was removed so that the muscles were exposed. I looked at the calf that was just standing there, compliant, but obviously distressed, and the foreman had become oblivious to the calf's feelings and pain.
A supervisor came into the area where the slaughter was being done and said he was going to use a chemical on the animal to protect or preserve the meat in some way. This chemical was going to hurt this animal even more. I looked into the eyes of the animal and saw that lack of hope and acceptance of torture and death. It was awful.
Then the slow, retarded, man changed personalities and now was an extrovert and very flamboyant. He was now filled with energy and was a dynamo. He was asked to go in and help with the slaughter as he now had the strength of 10 men. He now could hold the animals down or help in a way he couldn’t have done had he been this “other” personality. It was if something within him had changed his complete persona.
Jeans and Clothing
I then went to a large conference room where many female workers were sitting. Then, the male workers came into that room and sat down. It had the appearance of a church because of the bleachers all facing up front. I was acknowledged in this meeting and someone asked if I was the one who sold them their jeans. I said yes. Then, I was flooded after the meeting with so much appreciation for the jeans. And I told them of the workers who made those jeans did so with such love and care and the woman would focus on things like the stitching or the hem, and I knew this was not the reason why these women liked the jeans, they were picking up on the love and care given to each pair of jeans. It was almost an act of love that each pair of jeans was being made.
In the slaughterhouse, the personality of the short male worker would change based on HIS thoughts as well as the thoughts of others and those expectations. He would at times be an introvert, other times an extrovert, and at times have tremendous unusual strength. How he presented himself was based on the energy of thought.
The slaughterhouse foreman and supervisor were oblivious to the thoughts and feelings of the animals. The lack of hope and acceptance became absorbed into the animal and the supervisor chose to deal with the problem, not by his thoughts or improving the situation for the animal, but by bringing in an outside chemical to try and block the thoughts (attempt to preserve the meat). This action made it even worse for the animal - creating even more despair, lack of hope, and lack of acceptance.
The dream vignette of the female workers appreciating their jeans was the dream communicating how the energy of love can even be transferred into a physical, nonliving, inanimate object. Those feelings are shared, communicated, and can be felt and even absorbed, by anyone interacting with that nonphysical object.
Energy can also be absorbed, transferred, shared, and communicated. Spiritual energy is everywhere and a part of everything. It is in our food as well as clothing. This energy can even change personalities, and impact who we believe who we are (the strength of 10 men).
This is a significant dream I had that has provided comfort, as well as nudged me to take a certain path. I interpreted the dream to encourage me to share my personal experiences and stories about using and working with life force energy. As a result, I started this personal blog about how using the tools to cultivate life force energy has helped create some gems of experiences for me to share.
Here is the dream:
I am at the entrance of a city and the town square. One side of the square I see a vast valley that stretches out and far away. Then to the right of this scene, or North, is a mountainous, green area, lush, beautiful. To the right of this area, is a city that reminds me of San Francisco, and to the right of this, I see what appears to be SOURCE, or how I envision SOURCE - a spiral of energy twirling clockwise. This SOURCE energy is currently located in the town square.
This SOURCE energy, as it was moving, was occasionally dropping small crystal rocks, or nuggets. I would follow this movement, and when one of these crystal rocks dropped, I would bend over and pick up and pocket the small crystal stone. It had a similar sensation to picking up sea shells that were left from the waves, but these were crystal rocks dropping from Source energy as it went around in a circle.
A little child also picked up a crystal rock and then gave it to me, as if he was helping me to gather the stones. I took it and thanked him. Another little Chinese boy came and gave me what I thought was a rock, but it was shaped like a carved bird made of stone that was exquisitely beautiful. It was purple and green stone - a carved hummingbird.
I was reluctant to take this treasure, but he was with an adult, who seemed to be the Old Chinese Master, and he encouraged me to take it, so I did. The feelings I had there were so intense. I was filled with love, peace, harmony, and balance. It was green, lush, active, peaceful. It felt perfect. I felt perfect.
I interpreted this dream to be a message to gather and savor the life force energy experiences - the ones that are special and unique - the nuggets. Because the dream also included a hummingbird, which for me, is a symbol that means communication, I interpreted this to mean the nuggets should be shared, particularly the ones that brought knowledge (the color purple) or demonstrated love (the color green).
I am hopeful that others may benefit from reading about some of my personal experiences with these life force energy gems and nuggets.
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.
When I went to see an Improve theater and I was captivated how the actors defined this blank stage and their roles at the beginning of the play. The actors would take suggestions from the audience and develop the structure of thoughts around what was defined as make believe on the stage. "This is a circular door. Here is an elevator. This is where one can get shoes shined. This is a plant." Then the roles were created with the group. After the blank set was defined in our imagination, the theater then began.
This process is very similar to how the Tao takes life force energy to create our physical reality. Thoughts have energy and give direction to subtle energy, so we, as a group, collectively decide on the parameters of the environment we live in. Much of this energy is transferred in our DNA and cells, but it is also transferred in spiritual self - our soul's expectation. It also becomes a part of our thoughts, and as such, those ideas are projected out to become part of our reality.
This is one way we participate in creating our reality. We use these ideas later, to change or improve our life experience when we start sending out different thoughts of what we want to bring into our existence.
This awareness was an "ahh hah moment" for me. I then was able to understand more about how everything is energy and how our thoughts help to create that physical reality we live in. Our personal thoughts, mixed with others thoughts, helps create the physical construct for our physical life experience.
This moment of awareness was a life changing event for me. It was in the theater, at that moment, that I could understand that interconnection between the physical and the subtle energy realms of our life and how we are an active participant in the life experience we have created. It is almost like we are living on an improv stage we as a group created.
I have noticed that so much of television, books, and chatter is often centered around sex. It almost gives the impression that sex is the ultimate experience in life. But it isn't. Sex is nice, yes, but it is not the ultimate experience. It is just one experience in a huge palette of feel good moments. But so is eating. Or experiencing music. Or being driven by curiosity. Or the feeling of love. These are all experiences associated with life force energy and as a result, can create a moment of wonder and amazement, joy and pleasure. It is just one of the spices in life. One of many.
The awe and wonder of life are often connected with FEELING GOOD. These feelings of joy and pleasure are a validation of sensing and using Qi or life force energy. When you fall in love, it is an energetic experience. When you have climatic sex, it is an energetic experience. When you turn water into wine, or walk on water, or heal someone who is sick - all of these are energetic experiences creating a moment of wonder and awe in a persons life.
I am counting on humanity making that giant leap of growth to understand and embrace the world of subtle energy communication. The shialude energy, which the earth now has, should be a vehicle to help humanity make this leap. The best thing about this is the hope that the world will stop dwelling and stirring in a cycle of fear and anger, and step out of that conundrum to feel AWE AND WONDER in that awareness. And in that process, recognize they can move towards experience this wonder on a DAILY basis.
