Contacting Auric Fields

I recall a friend of mine once was having headaches on a regular basis and he got to the point where he just didn't tell anybody about it because there wasn't much he could do about it and he was just kind of worn down by the experience.

I recall once when he was visiting me at the trailer park that he casually mentioned that he was having one of his headaches. So I asked him to stand up and I reached towards him without touching him in the general direction of his head and suddenly he stood up straight and said, "Oh - headache had completely gone away." It came back slightly but then it felt so much better he didn't want me to do any more.

Now I'm bringing this to your attention because at the time I wasn't entirely sure what had happened because I was functioning spontaneously. I had not done to much work with people in what is often called healing but what is really from my perspective, the removal of discomfort for a time and sometimes it's permanent but thats the way I prefer to look at it. I just touched his auric field. I didn't touch his body and I recall I was no closer then about - oh maybe a foot away from his head when it felt better.

I'm bringing this to your attention because I feel that some of you may have this capability and I'd like to suggest you try something. Reach your hand out and gradually move your hand, palm facing your body, towards your body and see if you notice a little resistance or a very slight feeling in your physical body.

When you have that feeling it probably means that you are contacting your auric field. The same can be done with another person but I recommend that you explore the parameters - meaning the distance of your auric field from your body - for a time. This will give you an opportunity to observe a phenomena that is a real thing for us all and also will give you an opportunity to enjoy a capacity that can be used in other ways.

For instance, not long ago I recommended to a friend that when his cat was busy - and he's very fond of his cat - or his cat was not feeling well and he wanted to pet his cat to soothe it and calm it that he could pet his cats auric field by moving his hand towards his cat and when he felt a slight resistance or a slight feeling in his own body that that was as close to his cat as his hand ought to be. Then with the palm of his hand facing his cat he could follow the contours of his cats body just as if he was petting the cat from head to tail. In that case it would be good to make strokes from head to tail, pull your hand back and then move your hand towards your cats head and go head to tail. This way you're not pushing the energy back and forth.

I'm not suggesting that you pet yourself from head to tail but I'm giving you an example of how this can be used and I will build on it in the future.

Another Day In The Trailer Park

I remember there was an occasion when I was living in the trailer park where there had been a great deal of rain, much of it unexpected and it being towards the later part of winter there was also snow further up the canyon and then with the alternating rain and snow and the creek running very high indeed the prediction came from the weather people that they were expecting a huge storm to arrive and they were predicting anywhere between four and five inches of rain for the city itself and for us up in the canyon of course it was always more. So people were very worried especially those in the first few rows of the trailer park near the creek.

I remember wondering if there was something I ought to do about that as I had been taught how to work with the weather and yet I had made a friend in the park and she and I were discussing it one day - this at about - oh maybe a day to a day and a half before the storm was scheduled to arrive and I suddenly had a flash of insight as it was something that I'd worked on once before in such a manner.

I remember saying to her even though there was absolutely every bit of evidence to the contrary that the storm was going to miss us to the north. She looked at me. She said, "Okay?" I said, "Now, the storm is going to miss us to the north" and I remember requesting that she go around and tell people in the park that the storm was going to miss us to the north.

I don't recall exactly what she did but I know I told one or two others who I was quite certain were the sort of social type of people who would tell everybody else and thats what I did.

Well, I don't have to tell you do I - the storm missed us to the north much to everybody's amazement. Now I'm not trying to say that I am some kind of magician but rather it occurred to me that this was an occasion in which people could express a sense of welcoming the sun without actually knowing that this is what was going on. It is not manipulation when it causes relief and happiness - keep that in mind when it comes to the shamanic and mystical world. Sometimes when people are frightened and don't know what to do they get upset easily - we can all understand that - and so this was not a psychological suggestion either.

It was a statement made with energy - I felt the energy come in when I said that to my friend and she felt it too as a sensitive person. It just so happened that I had some little reputation in the trailer park and a few people knew that I was a spiritual person and one particular friend - an elderly man who had insights about such things understood when I told him that the storm would miss us to the north - what that meant - and when he told others - as he told me later - he said it in such a way - in some cases very nonchalant and in other cases a little more firmly that everyone in the park believed it and expected that when they got up the next morning that the sun would be shining brightly - and so it was.

Sometimes the littlest things can bring about the best things. This was not a case of allusion or delusion. It was not a case of wishful thinking. Everyone went to bed expecting and welcoming and feeling relieved that the sun would be out brightly the next day which it was. Well, thats my short story for today. It worked out well.

With The Assistance Of Mother Earth And Greenstone

I remember once when I was living in the trailer park that the waters of the creek rose high, very high.

I had been given a piece of greenstone by some friends from New Zealand who were Maori. Greenstone is something very precious to the Maori people and it is something that is found in water and my Maori friend who is a Mystical Man and Shaman said that it worked well with water especially.

Well the water was up very high and I decided that since it was threatening the first two rows of the trailer park and some damage had already been done - my trailer was back several rows - that I would perhaps try the greenstone. I hadn't been sure whether it was alright to try the greenstone before that or whether it was alright to interfere with nature because floods are part of her way of cleansing herself.

Still I was concerned for my neighbors - while none of them was in any danger they were frightened. So I took the greenstone and went with a friend who was someone I was teaching and we went over to the water. Granted the water was not clean but I felt it was necessary to stand in it because I had to address the water as an entity.

I took out the greenstone and encouraging my student to observe but not stare I placed the greenstone in the water. It seemed to glow a little bit - purple. Then I said a Living Prayer requesting that the water be higher on the side that the trailer park was not on.

I realize that sounds ridiculous perhaps, to you since water will be flat across its surface but I asked for what I felt was needed. The greenstone then showed - I could see it and so could my student - a purple image of itself which moved around in a particular cycle above it.

We glanced at it since we did not feel it was appropriate to stare at it doing its work and we stayed for about five or ten minutes saying prayers. Well, what happened next was something that I'm sure many of you will say is not possible but what occurred is that even though the water was predicted to rise it did not rise on the side where the trailer park was on - it rose on the other side where there were no trailers, no people and only the lands of nature.

Granted the only explanation could be that it was rising on a slanted pattern - meaning higher on one side than on the other and I could clearly see that the marker we all used to check how high the water was - which was a post on which the mailbox for the trailer park sat - was covered but that on the side where the trailer park was, that the water had receded.

I thought I'd share this with you not to suggest that I am so grand or anything like that but just to suggest that there are things in nature and in life that we do not understand all the time but which are benevolent and love us and will work with us at times when requested.

With The Assistance Of Grandmother

There was a time many years ago when I had an opportunity to get to know somebody better after their death then during life - does that not sound strange?

I was living in a trailer park that was in a particularly nice area of Arizona. It was however an area that was prone to floods from time to time - not generally devastating floods but just rises in water.

The person I referred to was my neighbor - lived nearby me. Oh, we would wave - you know how it is - you wave at your neighbor and then you go on about your business. We never really had much of a chance to say anything but, "Hi, how yah doin?" You know, like that.

One day there was an unexpected flood and my neighbor being unused to the area and the way things went there did not know or perhaps forgot that the water would roll over the bridge that led from one place to another and that even though it may not look like very much it could be more that it seemed and it was the case on that day.

It was enough so that her small car which was not very heavy was floated over the bridge and into the water and while my neighbor was strong and athletic she could not fight it and disappeared downstream. Heroic efforts were made by other neighbors to rescue her but it was not possible. Such tragedies happen often and when we read about them or hear about them we are sad and perhaps we say prayers as I often do.

Still this was somebody that I knew, not well granted but a neighbor - quite a shock. Something happened shortly thereafter though that was an unusual event even in my life.

I remember that there was a search on for (I'll call her) Ronni. It was a search and rescue for a time and then it became a recovery for a time. I was sitting in my trailer pondering the suddenness of my neighbor's disappearance when all of a sudden I saw Ronni walking cheerfully along the path that led past my trailer to hers and she looked perfectly joyful, perfectly happy the way she always did - even more cheerful actually.

The thing about it is that she was - I could see her in complete form - she was a light being - beautiful white and gold and I jumped up and looked at her. She glanced at me very surprised but not upset, smiled and continued on her way.

I suppose you could just call this something like a ghost experience but it's not frightening at all. She looked wonderful. I had never seen her look so cheerful. She walked around her trailer, walked around the park a bit and then came back and sat in another part of the trailer and looked at me and she said, "You can see me" and I said, "Yes" and she said, "I had heard that you had gifts and were a Shaman. It's true isn't it" and I said, "Yes."

She said, "I wish we had gotten to know each other better but I don't know how long I'm going to be here" and I said, "You're welcome to stay until you feel the need to move on or you can come and visit anytime you like."

So for the next sixteen hours she would come and go and when she would come by she would sit, though I didn't get the impression she was tired - just putting me at ease perhaps and we'd chat about this and that. Never anything about after death experience. It didn't seem right you know.

She would talk about life in the park and how beautiful it was and how she never had really noticed how beautiful it was during life. It was a pretty place. Many trees, friendly neighbors - a nice place to live.

At one point though and it was about at the sixteenth hour - she was talking about something - I don't remember what and all of a sudden there was a white light behind her and she said, "Oh, Grandmothers here" and I saw with the light - two arms of light reach out and reach around her as one might see someone hug another person from the back and pull her gently towards the light and then there was only the white light and then she was gone.

It was a magical time. I was comforted by seeing her be so happy and heres the postscript - at almost the same time - the recovery operation was successful and she was found. I'm not saying that there was an absolute connection between the recovery and the coming of Grandmother but it seems like there may have been and I'm happy I could be there for her after her passing and I'm feeling it's alright to share this story with you now. I'm hopeful that if any of her friends or relatives read this that they will be comforted to know that she was happy and moved on with the aid of Grandmother.

Another Brasilian Adventure

I remember a time when I was in Brasil visiting with friends and working. We went for a ride to a small town. On our way though, one of my friends saw a person that she knew and we pulled over in the car and she talked with them briefly and then we started going in a different direction.

She said that she had heard that there had been an unusual event at someone's house nearby and that they were allowing a few people in and so we drove over there and we came to this home that had a fence around it and we were let through the gate. It was a large property but it was not opulent - simply a considerable amount of land and a few structures on it.

We drove in and it looked like a nice place and we drove up to the main house and got out and my friend there who of course was a native of that country began speaking to the resident and it turned out that they had had a strange phenomena the night before and as a result many of the people who lived there including the owners favorite dog were acting strangely and he was very concerned.

He spoke to my friend as if they were old friends because many people there are - I've discovered in Brasil were quite friendly and had good hearts often open to each other - and they walked around and I walked with my friend from the States after them and after she had had a lengthy conversation with the owner of the property who lived there she reported to us that during the night everybody had slept very deeply - much deeper than usual except for the man's son who had stayed up to watch tv and that he had, the owner that is, had gone in to see his son that morning and could not wake him. The doctor had come out and said that the son appeared to be alright but that he was sleeping so deeply he could not be awakened and the doctor had left.

Well they had left everything exactly as it was. They checked the house and the property over and nothing had been stolen or apparently disturbed and they were quite baffled.

The woman that I had gone to Brasil with, my friend, had walked around the property during this whole conversation and she called me over at some point and said, "You've got to see this" and so I excused myself from the group and walked with her over to a portion of the property that was near one of the outer boundary fences and there on the grass, for it was simply relatively short cut grass, was something that I had heard about and read about but never actually seen was a Crop Circle and while I grant there was no crops there to speak of since it was grass it was quite clear what it was.

My friend reported that as she came close to it that the energy was overpowering and true enough - I knelt down beside it and held my hand out over it and there was no question that there was a wonderful energy radiating from it - the type of energy that is very comfortable to me - something I often refer to as being magnetic.

Well it had a distinct pattern which I wish I could reproduce here for you but I don't know how. I can only say it involved certain segments of circles and arcs of a type that created a pattern that looked familiar to me. If I can reproduce it and put a picture up here someday I will - and then my friend - whom I shall refer to as N that I went to Brasil with - during my study of the Crop Circle had walked over and came to me and said that the owners dog was behaving strangely and that the owner appeared to be very concerned.

The dog was a young German shepherd - according to the owner was only about eight months old, was quite large and was normally full of pep and exuberance as any young dog might be but I observed the dog - he would get up, walk a few steps and then lay down, get up, walk a few steps and then lay down.

The owner said that he was very worried that the dog was ill but had checked him over and the dog did not appear to be sick in any way. My friend asked me could I help the dog and since I have been able to help animals sometimes I walked over to the dog who was just laying there and I knelt down beside him and he looked almost like - picture a human being who was somewhat drugged.

The dog genuinely looked drugged but I was quite certain that the owner who loved the dog would not do such a thing and I reached over with my left hand and held my hand in a certain way and reached towards the dogs nose slowly - not the tip of his nose but what you might call the bridge of his nose and suddenly the dog hopped up and at the moment the dog hopped up I also at that moment had a complete understanding of what had occurred.

Apparently the dog had been left with the memory of it because when the event of the night before had occurred the dog was the only one who was wide awake and in full possession of all of his senses and I would like to relate to you here what I received from the dog.

It had been the middle of the night and sure enough the son was watching television. While he was watching television he had fallen asleep but then he would wake up every once in a while and continue watching his program as many of us do.

The dog became bored with this activity and walked out of the house since the door was open and walked around the property being somewhat bored and also looking around to see what was happening as any dog might. And then there was a light in the sky and the light got brighter and brighter and suddenly descended directly to land on the property and the dog was barking furiously and ran back to the area where the son had been watching tv but the young man was totally asleep and the dog could not awaken him even though he pulled on his sleeve as a dog might and the dog ran around to the other houses and was barking furiously to get people to wake up but nobody would wake up and come out. So the dog ran back to the bright object and was barking at it.

Then the object grew less bright and there was like a glass dome on the top. Someone stepped out of the dome and looking at the dog, reached in the general direction of the dog and the dog grew very calm and was then just a quiet observer. The being who looked to the dog like any human being - perhaps a little taller and perhaps with fingers just a little longer, got out and walked over towards one of the other portions of the fence that went around the house and right about that time I started to understand from the beings point of view as well.

It appeared that somehow the being was able to calm the dog and that the dog actually understood what the being was thinking and this is what I got from the dog's memory - that this being who was from a distant planet had come to visit a place that he had visited once before with his mate - his wife yes - and they had enjoyed the area.

It was some seven hundred years before. They had come and landed - there was no house there at the time. It was just open land - and they had walked over to an area that had some trees and they had sat down and apparently, it looked to me since I had the picture of it, that they had something to eat and then they either spoke or sang to each other - that wasn't clear to me - still isn't but it was quite a pleasant scene. Then they had been affectionate in some way with each other, then had gotten up, walked around the general land, went back to their ship and continued on their travels.

So this being had come to visit that spot since his mate had passed away not long ago and he was traveling with his companion around to various places where he had visited with his dear one and even though there was at that time a house - I didn't mention it was a house in the country so it was a distance from any city - a house on the property, he was visiting those places.

They had the capacity to very gently calm life in the area so that animals and humans alike would either sleep or be in a calm restful state. The being wandered around the property a bit - not harming anyone but the dog tagging fairly close along - the being walked and went over and touched one of the walls of the main house which was made of brick - touched it to feel the consistency of the brick apparently. Then walked over and touched a lawn mower - didn't exactly move it but shoved it a little bit the way you'd touch something that was flexible.

Then walked over - and the door was open - where the son had been watching tv and the screen of the television was fuzzy the way they get when the show goes off the air. The son was sitting in a chair sound asleep and the being then continued walking around the property until they had returned to the ship. Then as the being was going to get back into the ship, the person stopped, walked back to the dog who was still standing there and reached down with one of his hands and not touching the dog but apparently coming close to the same spot that I had reached for at the front of the dog's head did something which apparently allowed the dog to remember everything that had happened - not just in the details of what the dog could see and sense but also in the details of the beings memory leaving essentially the story of the event - and then getting back in the ship and leaving and the mark left on the ground was a mark that their vehicle would leave.

Interestingly enough I knew after, essentially if I can use the term - downloading the dog, I knew that the mark on the ground was the shape of the way they built their cities on their home planet and it was an interesting pattern. There were rows of dwellings shaped in an arc pattern - picture arcs that would make up a circle in four arcs alright - and that there would be gaps in between them and the gaps would lead to a central park that was also a circle - very attractive - and then of course there was the outer boundary of the circle that the ship left and that was sort of a map of how they lived.

I want to let you know that after I suddenly had all this knowledge the dog jumped up very spryly and started running around the property happy again with occasional barks and very cheerful and the owner was thrilled and was so happy and I might add that the people started waking up around the household and were able to walk around. Apparently the dogs state of condition was somehow linked to other people on the property and everybody got up and started walking around and asked, "What happened" and so on.

For some reason the owner was not effected to the same extent the others were and was perfectly able to get around and talk and ask for help and so on. Then the Press showed up and they wanted to interview somebody but of course since I didn't speak the language I asked my Brasilian friend if she would talk to them and she did and shortly after that we left.

I thought I'd report this to you. I know it's a lengthy story but I thought I'd report it to you because it was an interesting experience and I was quite intrigued since I had never been exposed to a crop circle and it was kind of a fun thing. I was glad I could help the dog and help the people and I thought perhaps you might be interested in this particular experience I had. Goodlife.

Just Another News Story...

There was a time when I visited a country that is a very beautiful place. I remember several unusual things happening there. One of the more interesting things that I'd have to say that happened there was something that I don't see in our country - at least not reported as a normal news story and that is that the newspapers reported with color photos on the front page and articles written just as if it were any other news event without any derision at all, of UFO's seen over the country and even reported some anomalous events happening on the ground. People saying they saw something or heard something that was directly correlated to these UFO sightings.

That country is Brasil. Clearly one of the more spiritual countries I've ever visited. I found the people there not only delightful in many ways but profoundly spiritual and well connected to consciousness.

I couldn't help but note the completely straight forward and candid way that such stories were reported there. I know that in our country the Press feels pressured to be derisive simply because of constraints they feel upon themselves or perhaps editorial policies that may have nothing to do with news gathering services. I do not know the real reason - thats just my conjecture. Regardless of their reasons to report or not report such news I found it profoundly refreshing to experience such reports in Brasil as if it were just any other news event.

I know this is not a big deal but I will report other bits and pieces of my experience here as time goes on. Goodlife.
