My Adventures with
Personal Stories of Working with Subtle Energies
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.
