My Adventures with
Personal Stories of Working with Subtle Energies
There is an exit near Eagles Nest off I-80 between Wendover and Salt Lake City (SLC) and on the South side of the freeway is a little hill with 3 pillars of rock on the hill and look similar to the rock cairns from this photo. That area was used as a council site for several Native American tribes over 500 years ago. The council would discuss such things as sharing of the grass lands between tribes. Grass, at that time, was a main source of food; similar to our wheat of today, according to John U.K.
"The placing of the rocks on the cairn was part of a ritual to enter the council area. Not everyone was allowed to place rocks on the cairn; only those who were designated for that honor," John U.K. continued.
Rituals are a way to direct and focus thought. These Native Americans would use rituals to help establish that community connection with each other as well as the Tao (or All-that-Is/Source Energy).
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.
