With creative direction from CITIZEN watch, the installation design was handled by DGT while Yutaka Endo of LUFTZUG took care of lighting and sound direction. The installation is currently on display at SPIRAL Gallery in Tokyo, Japan until 28 November 2014. You can find video walk-throughs of this ethereal installation in the two videos embedded below.

“Time is light. If there were no light, then there would be no time. In the 20th century, mankind digitized time, measured it and continued to economize our time, until eventually we forgot about its relationship with the essence of light. Without light we never would have had the wonders…

Are you Running Out of Time?

I love this post and meditation! I don’t know why I didn’t reblog it as soon as I read it. I have been thinking about it ever since and doing my own interaction with time. Please Enjoy!

We all have the feeling that we are running out of time.  I have today, as I prepare for Thanksgiving.  So I decided to do some Inner Alchemy on this false thought/belief.  Time is an illusion, or so they say.   It is not a physical thing, which we all know.  So, I decided I wanted to know more about this “illusion” that I felt like I was running out of.  The only way I know to do this is by going into a mini meditation.     When I sat down and tuned into “time”, I felt an energy.  I started to think about the sentence that kept going through my head…”I am running out of time”  Since time is not…

Meditation is the Key to Building our New Golden Age Communities.

 
Most of us know the healing benefits of meditation and how it helps us deal with our everyday life stresses.  Meditation is an ancient practice that has been around and used for many different purposes since the beginning of time.   In the West it is now considered a New Age passive activity.  Many people are far too busy to sit down and quiet their minds and go within.  However, there is more to meditation than meets the eye…  This wise, ancient practice is more than just a passive activity that helps you to be happier and healthier.  As you raise your vibration, you begin to tune into additional aspects – more than just a peaceful feeling.  Meditation is in direct line with the Law of Correspondence which is…”As Above, So Below”…  Your “As Above” work is meditation. Your “As Below” work is what we do in our 3D lives in the…

A Vibe Exercise and a Message from Us

Standard

Hello Everybody,

What an odd week I have had.  Has it only been a week?

I have been on radio silence as we have been adjusting to this new accelerated time line…or whatever you want to call it.  I reached out and saw a few snippets of my journey but mostly I listened to the “time out” feeling I was getting all week.  I also listened to the urge to create.  I picked up my crochet hooks that were still in their packaging (when the hell did I buy them?) and re-taught myself stitches I had not practiced in decades.  I am currently working on a hat.  I have never made a hat but that is what struck my fancy.  Much to my delight, I do believe that it will turn out.  I made two pillows for my boys out of these flannel cubes that came as the packaging for their new “Yeti Snow Ball Fight” flannel sheets.  Now let me make the point that I don’t know how to sew except for sewing on a button or stitching a patch onto a hole in a pair of pants.  But I didn’t let that stop me.  I rearranged the office, brought in a shelf unit that was languishing in the garage and organized it….and decorated it.  Yes decorated!  I am apparently freaking out now that harvest season is done here on the farm.  I know very little about decorating.  What I do know about from many years working in retail, is displays.  So I created a display, which to other people looks like decorating.  Works for me!

What has all of the craft explosion brought to me?  One of the snippets that I saw when I reached out to check my status this week, was of myself standing on the new timeline.  I was sewing my own hand to the ground.  And man, the stitches were random and all over the place. (Just like my real life stitches.) 😉  But I saw those stitches grow down into the Earth like roots.  Then I stood up and started rotating my wrist around and pulling those roots up and around my hand until I had a ball of yarn in my palm.  Pretty cool visual, yeah?  I interpreted it to showing me that my creative urges where anchoring me into not only the new energy but the New Earth, which was co-creatively bringing me the energy to further manifest and create with.  Yippee!

Another interesting experience this week came from my friend Melissa, who emailed me a “Vibe Exercise”.  Melissa sees energy as vibration.  You can read her description of it on my So Your a Beginner page.  She has been interested in my exploration of 432 hertz.  Sine waves are her thing! So she sends me the following.

Here is a game for you to feel what I feel. Go to that place where you are tuned into the sine waves. then turn this video on to watch. I’m not a christian but this song is an example of a group of people in the sweet spot vibrationally with their art. And tune into the lyrics a bit from the perspective of each of us as god. I think it’ll help you dial in on the hum. 

So fun!  A new game.  I’m all in.  I dropped everything and pulled up my 432 hertz app and listened to a few songs, concentrating on the physical sensations with in my body.  Then I pulled up her link and played the song, which is not in 432 hertz.  Holy Cow!  It was like being a puddle of water and being able to feel the sound waves hitting me.  I had turned something on in myself and holy cow, bada boom bada bing! Here is a snippet of my reply to her.
“Well I just tried it and I’m buzzing right now. I really feel high! There is a soft tremble still in the cells of my brain and heart.
The strongest impact was when one of the singers would sing their solo part. Then it was much bigger waves.”
I realized later that feeling high was not exactly the right description.  I did feel high only without the brain fuzziness that accompanies either a drug or alcohol experience.  Imagine!  So if any of you wants to try the Vibe Exercise, have fun and let me know your results!

After two days of dizziness and weird pressure I awoke this morning feeling totally normal physically and a “the eagle has landed” feeling psychically or spiritually.  After breakfast I felt a “Welcome Greeting” trying to come through.  I see a Being facing me on a white plain.  And who is that Being you ask.  Myself, of course, but not just me…little bits of each of you where mixed in.  Kinda like pixels.  So this message is from US.

“Lets not make this formal, shall we?  We are all friends here.  No one is standing at a podium.  I am YOU and you are HERE.  (Big Smile accompanied by a sign with lots of direction arrows including one that is pointing down to HERE.  We are so funny! LOL)
First of all lets review how we got here.  (I hear immediate groans all around followed my own with eye rolling thrown in!)  Ok, how about a recap? (we say with a smile)

You are a stream running/flowing along the land.  You have passed through the desert and saw God in the reflection upon the water.  You have moved through the rocks and boulders and have learned to flow around instead of pushing them out of your way.  You have left your mark on the Bolders (that is the spelling that wants to be used.  Is it not Bold to be the obstacle that is someone else’s teacher?).  But it is not your job to change the boulders.  The bolder is happy to be a boulder.  You have flown through the grasslands and the fields, enjoying those who come down for a drink.  The river sometimes flows fast and sometimes flows slow, giving you rest between the rushes.  Until one day you realize that the reflection of God that you see upon the water is a reflection of you.

Did you feel the change in the water just now?

It is no longer along for a ride, flowing wherever the land takes it.  Now the water has a purpose and yet what do you do with yourselves?  You cannot go back to floating along, your consciousness centered within.  It is too late (Big Smile), now it knows what it is like to be out and it is staying out!  Now you realize that the land is sculpted by the water.  You change the land with every drop.  The land rejoices! “You are no longer alone.  Won’t you come out and play?” (Says the land.)

That is the energy of the NOW moment.  Won’t you come out and play?  It all resides there.  Action and Joy.  Water can be violent and crash and bash.  Water can be gentle and seep and soak.  But the most important thing about water is that it permeates everything!  You don’t need stream beds anymore.  You must think of all the ways that water moves.  Under ground, above ground and in between.  Rivers and seas – yes but vapor and clouds, steam and ice, snow and rain, aquifers and puddles, wells and facets, cells and membranes.  You now have no bounds.  This is the new energy.

So how to work it?  Follow the little urges of your heart.  Don’t put off ’til tomorrow what you can do today.  You have an urge to write a letter–write it.  You think of a present for someone–make it.  A song begins to form–sing it.  A book draws your attention–read it or for some of you–write it.  Like a thread in your tapestry, grab it and weave it in.  Use the small acts to make a beautiful tapestry.  Each drop of water forms part of a beautiful wave that can travel across oceans.  There are many ways to be creative.  The more you listen to your heart the more urges come to you until it is like a symphony of waves crashing upon the beach, creating the land anew.

Enjoy my friends.  The inner work is done.  The outward work begins.  Permeate everything!”

As Thich Nhat Hanh lies in critical condition in a hospital after a brain hemorrhage, I sit here and try to take in these challenging words.  If we can get to the point of recognizing how evil intention lives in ourselves, perhaps we can get to the point of forgiveness and reconciliation with the perpetrators of evil deeds.

In Plum Village, where I live in France, we receive many letters from the refugee camps in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines, hundreds each week.

Hi Everybody,

I wanted to post this beautiful recent experience by Seonaid from her inspiring blog breathofgreenair when I first read it this week, but I wanted to get my last post out first.  So it will go out today as I watch the first snowflakes of the season come down.  It has been bitter cold here for a week and letting my consciousness go off on a journey with one of the most amazing creatures on the planet, the sea turtles, is just what the doctor ordered.  I have very little instructions for you because Seonaid describes the experience wonderfully on her own.  So read her words and then take your own journey.  But first, I found this beautiful poem by Roxi St. Clair sitting in my inbox this morning.  (A little nudge to include this poem and her bit of pertinent information as well.)  My thanks to both ladies for putting their art out into the world for me to find!

Salty balsam sprays
Kelp canopy sways
White caps, water blue
Coral, starfish too
Flippers, gliding swift
Honu, ocean’s gift.

The Honu, or Hawaiian sea turtle, is the Hawaiian symbol of longevity, peace, good luck, humility, long life and the spirit within. Honu is the only indigenous reptile to the Hawaiian islands, and is revered as a sacred symbol of the life force and guardian spirit of the sea.

Here is Seonaid’s experience and amazing photos (as usual!).

Washed by the soft warm waves of the Caribbean, a sea grass meadow beckons in the shallow blue waters off Barbados. Here the Green Sea Turtles wait to welcome you to their paradise beneath the tropical sea.

IMG_5675.JPG
Gliding with ease through this watery world, their long arms paddle in mesmerising slow motion, scooping the salty water into swirling trails drifting away behind them. So relaxed, that one look into that huge black eye releases all tension, drawing you deep into the perfect present where your body is soothed by the warm motion of the waves and currents beneath the glittering surface.

IMG_5676.JPG
You might find your breathing slows down into slow deep waves, and your muscles relax into the salty support of the warm sea. You might even begin to imagine that you could dive down towards the soft white sand on the ocean bed, and walk among the swaying grass and coral, among herds of silver fish. Swimming beside a green turtle may leave you convinced that becoming a mermaid would be an awfully big adventure, and certain route to paradise.

IMG_5677.JPG
As the turtles get used to your presence, they often become more relaxed, and might swim up underneath your belly, gliding smoothly over your soft skin. They seemed curious, looking at us as with what seemed like slight bemusement, as we moved among them with our clumsy skinny four limbs. They could turn in a tight circle with one sweep of a flipper, while we flapped and kicked to follow like toddlers learning to walk.

IMG_5683.JPG
Despite their bulk, they drift and fly, gliding like eagles through the blue waters of this heaven on earth. All around fish gathered and followed, like courtiers seeking an audience with the ancient oracle of the sea. A pair of love struck puffer fish, 50 cm long, flirted and kissed beneath the shadow of the turtles shells. Peace was the over arching emotion sweeping through me as I swam among the turtles in their own private paradise.

All turtles are protected in the waters around Barbados. The ones we swam with were adults who graze here when they are not breeding. Turtles, like salmon return to the beach where they were born to lay their eggs, but graze often thousands of miles away. We stayed on a beach where hawksbill turtles come home to lay their eggs, and all the beach front hotels have turtle friendly policies. Night time lights towards the beach are kept to a minimum, and lines of native vegetation are left between the buildings and the beach. No umbrellas are plunged into the soft white sand, incase a hidden nest of eggs lies beneath, and the sea in front of nesting beaches is marked off to keep boats and jet skis out.
I was left grinning, and am still in awe of these elegant creatures who have been on earth so long they have seen the dinosaurs come and go.

432 hertz, life pods and event horizons (It’s not as sci-fi as it sounds!)

Standard

Hello All,

I’m here with a little status update for you.  Earlier this week, I had a friend gift me by sharing a discovery she had come across.  I use the word discovery very lightly, because there are many people out there who already know about 432 hertz, a specific sound frequency.  (Including my musician husband who has known about it for over a decade.)  Well, I had never heard of it but I paid attention because there has been a hell of a lot of sine-waves and other vibrational information coming in through my meditations of late.  432 hertz is a specific wave length or frequency of sound.  Now, I am no scientist, mathematician or musician so I will let you do your own research into the specifics (of which there is a vast amount).  There are two camps that are enamored with 432 hertz.  One is the New Agers, who find that this specific sound frequency is a Universal frequency and therefore listening to music in this frequency can be very healing, awareness enhancing and mood soothing.  In my own words I would say that the frequency of you, me, anybody is sympathetically tuned to this Universal frequency.  Remember that Everything is Energy!  Think of it as two sine-waves that encounter each other and because they are similar, they flow smoothly together instead of having any dissonance where they meet.  The human frequency, as I see it, is our emotions.  And how do we create our realities, people?  That’s right, with emotion!  The other camp of 432 hertz lovers, is what I will call the scientist musicians.  They could, for the most part, give a crap about sacred geometry and finding universal symbolism that supports the 432 hertz frequency.  For them it is all about the “God Note”, or finding the sound that resonates best within the human ear.  They are interested in sound that moves a person to enjoy the experience more fully.  Music is their passion and they feel that 440 hertz, the accepted Universal Standard for tuning since 1958, creates a slight dissonance within the cochlea of the human ear.  Here is a quote from Omega432.com, as you can see, the scientist musician and the New Ager are not that separate after all.

Changing frequency may also change the electric potential of the brain which may alter and affect memory and perception by the slight change and diamagnetic charge within the water in our cells.
This is perhaps a speculation of why A=440Hz ET and higher concert pitches can be perceived as a brighter, thinner, outward of the head, whereas concert pitch at A=432Hz 12T5 or C=256Hz can be perceived as an inward experience of feeling. Our heart has more morphogenetic fields than the brain and is one of the first things to form in the womb, beating out the soliton pulse of cosmic musical DNA. We feel our emotional bodies from the heart and our solar plexus is the nerve cluster that senses those feelings like a microphone or transducer.

So, long story short, I easily found an free app on Itunes that converts all the songs in my music library on my phone into 432 hertz.  Well, all songs unless they are protected from 3rd party sharing, which means they will not play through another app…they play silently ;-).  I freely admit that I cannot physically hear any difference between the same song played at 440 hertz and 432 hertz.  There are many testimonials of people who can all over the internet.  I do not have a musicians tuned ear, so it sounds the same to me.  What I can tell you is that while listening to the first song I played through the 432 hertz app, a ring of heat or electric feeling of some kind circled the top of my skull.  I kept feeling it as I listened and then after a few songs I realized that I could actually feel the wavelengths or vibrations of the sound physically bouncing around in my brain.  The sensation I experienced is hard to put into words for you all to understand.  Suffice to say that I turned it off after a few songs because it was hard to multi-task.  The next day, I spent all day canning in the kitchen and had my phone playing through the 432 hertz app.  The feeling were not as intense.  I could still feel the ring of energy around the top of my head but only if I tuned in to see if it was still there.  As I worked I noticed that the energy had moved out of my brain and was vibrating through my organs in my chest.  It was very subtle, like a tiny hum of a feeling.  Finally by the time that I turned it off, the vibrations had moved down to my knees.  If you feel inclined to listen to anything in 432 hertz, YouTube has got recordings of every possible genre of music that has been tuned to that frequency.

I did a meditation two days ago while listening to a song in 432 hertz.  I could see inside myself and was presented with the visual of a sine-wave made out of bubbles moving and twisting up through my body.  What the bubbles represented, I do not know.  I was very beautiful.  Then yesterday I tried to connect before going to sleep and all I could see was that I was floating in a black space.  It felt like a tube but I couldn’t see the ends.  All was dark.  The walls on the sides of the tube felt metallic.  So a bit of a freaky image from a human point of view but I have learned that EVERYTHING presented is symbolic and that if I don’t get the meaning, the explanation will be coming along at some point…some time…some day….

This morning I woke pretty grumpy and down.  As I took my kindergartener to school, I was doing the anxiety spiral about money.  I’m sure you all know how that goes.  After I dropped him off, I headed to the grocery store.  On the drive I started trying to pull myself out of the anxiety spiral.  My self talk turned into a driving meditation with myself.  Yep, no guides, no ET’s, just me talking to ME.  I was reminded to open my heart wider…to the tune of it being pulled as open as a storm sewer cover.  Reminded that EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS PROVIDED, ALL WAYS PROVIDED.  And then the love that I could feel inside of myself, snapped me back into alignment.  Notice the love came from within me.  Not from outside of me.  Not from my Higher Self down or into me but from within ME.  I parked the car in the grocery store parking lot and turned it off.  I closed my eyes and thought of the black tube I had seen the night before.  I wanted to see if there was more information so I could make sense of it.  I saw myself exiting the black tube.  I was in the shape of a life pod, (to be sci-fi geeky) basically a rounded corner coffin-like thing.  But I know LIFE pod is a much better description than coffin.  LOL!  The most amazing thing about the visual was that the entire pod was completely covered with a vast amount of electric strands of red-orange energy.  The energy was moving very quickly through these strands and the color was very shocking and vibrant coming out of the black tube.  The pod entering what I understood as “living space”, which was represented as a starry night with a large sun off to the right.  So I am out of the dry-dock of the tube and electrified and on the move.  Oh the language of symbols!  Still confused but loving the electric energy that I saw.

I had a chance to read Lisa Gawlas’ post when I got home.   She made several points that I resonated strongly with.  The first having to do with the emotion that we put out.

We got to this moment with a lot of buffers on us, especially within our thought energy.  Because of the binding of spirit and body, those buffers are no longer in place, meaning, we better be super mindful of how we feel when we are “thinking” because that is the energy that is fueling your day to day life.

Now, we all know this.  And we are also all human.  We are going to have doubts, anxiety, fear, anger.  Don’t stay in those feeling, in other words, don’t wallow.  Reorient yourself, realign as soon as you can and don’t ACT from those emotions.  She also said the following.

Another common theme for yesterdays adventures, YOU are the creator creating, YOU.  It is now your responsibility to know your heart, know the desires and know the energy field around you.  Spirit said to several people yesterday, you now have brand new eyes and its up to you to use them.  See the energy in front of you that will take you to your desires, the created outcome of your desires.  Stop asking your guides to do it for you, their role is very different now than it ever has been.  They (our guides) are more like the banks of a river, holding the energy in place for you to recognize, use, swim in… but they can no longer do it for you as they had before.  If you think about it this way, YOU have become the spiritual guides to an evolving humanity, very present on earth.  Maybe look at it like this, you graduated university, received your masters degree, you cannot keep going back to your teachers and asking them to do things for you.

Now, I believe that our guides are really us on some level.  But it was especially ah-haaing to read that right after having Myself come to me during my driving meditation.  And then I read the following about a book she is listening to in her car.
Erik said we can look at the humans like living in the opening of a dark hole, and everything before them, the light before them is the “event horizon.”  Potentials unfolding for them.   Hearing this, which was a much longer conversation than I am sharing, simply because I didn’t look at chapter or time and I am not going back to look for it and I don’t want to be totally inaccurate in remembering the conversation.  But, when I read this, this energy wrapped around me and I suddenly knew without a shadow of a doubt, this is what i see in your readings, your “event horizon.”  It’s your greatest potential expressing itself in unmistakable ways (assuming I get the translation correct) what you do with it, or don’t do with it… is up to you.

And just like Lisa, knowing that what she sees in her readings is our “event horizon”, I knew that the black tube from the day before was the representation of the ‘dark hole” that humans have been living in.  We have left that energy and entered the “event horizon” or as it came to me earlier, “living space”.  Represented as the life pod, we have everything we need within us!  We are body and spirit integrated.  We have our big girl (or boy) panties on and are ready to explore.  Remember to have fun everybody!

Dude, increase your Amplitude!

Greetings All,

I have started to understand my quest to take on learning about the Earth element of Gold.  It seems that in this last vibrational shift we have reached a point in our evolution where we can now start to integrate our physicalness back into the One.  This is not something that will occur quickly or overnight.  We (humans) have chosen to be apart from the All for a reason.  We have learned through many lifetimes what it is like to be separate from the Source of All (however you want to name it), from each other and from the totality of ourselves.  Now we are going to start pulling ourselves back into the all.  This will take a while because we have chosen to attempt this while staying in our physical bodies. Choosing to do it the quick way is called death.  We have all done that many times too, taking little soul vacations in between trips back here.  How I currently imagine the Now scenario is to picture all the humans standing around a large tapestry.  Now imagine that we each grab ahold of a string from that tapestry and start learning how to meld with it.  Remember that melding goes both ways.  We need to melt into the All just as the All needs to melt back into us.  It is not a passive integration on the All’s part.  Of course, the All is very very vast; so first we will be concentrating on integrating the all of planet Earth (for the next few lifetimes).  This is why Lisa Gawlas has been seeing during her readings that people are being assigned to specific categories for this merger.  Some people will work with the atmosphere and air, some with the plants, some with the animals and birds, some with light and colors, some with the rocks in the Earth (I’m a rock girl.  I knew I rocked!), et cetera.  I am not the only one who is working on merging with gold, this is group effort as usual.

As to the feet chakras, I am still feeling my way along there.  I did find out some very interesting info that I will share.  This is from a meditation I did on the fifth but have not had the time to write it out other than making notes.  I did Lisa Gawlas’ Manifestation Meditation with the intent of finding out more about the chakras in the feet.  I saw the rainbow arch of energy go out–much farther then the last two times that I tried it.  Once again the energy came back to me under the ground and this time tunneled around my left foot like a little mole.  I lifted my left foot up off the ground and it had a rocket booster type of fire thing going on the bottom of the arch.  I stared at it a bit and decide to call in Gloria to help me understand.  She appeared next to me and after the greetings ended I saw a spiral of blinky white energy start to spiral down into the earth underneath my left foot.  Gloria took my hand and she grabbed on to the spiral and away we went.  The energy continued to corkscrew down into the earth and then I could see and feel that as it continued to spiral it also was doing a sine-wave up and down through the earth.  We ended up on a small square platform sitting facing each other.  I asked her about the rocket booster image that I had just seem.  She said, “You have fire on the sole of your left foot.  Fire purifies.”  “Purifies what?” I asked.  “Your intentions.  Like a forge strengthens and removes the impurities for a metalsmith, your left foot clears the cutter of your intentions.”  I think about my right foot and see a pool of still clear water in the arch of that foot.  She says,  “The right foot is the water element.  It amplifies the results back to you.  Think of the way water carries sound waves.  The whale songs for instance…”  Ok! So interesting!  I ask her for a specific activity to do to start working with both feet.  “Picture the fire and the water elongating into streams.  Now wrap them together and merge them into one.”  She tells me.  I see the streams not only merging into one another as if they are melting but that they turn into the bottom of an infinity loop.  So the energy comes down out of my body, goes into the Earth and crosses over or twists and comes back up into the other foot.  When I see the streams merge and become one, the physical area that contains the energy amplifies in volume and starts to grow up around me until it completely surrounds me.  I can feel the power in it as it surrounds me but it is my power so it feels familiar to me…it feels like confidence.  “Now open your heart and let the emotion come out.” Gloria tells me.  I see my heart chakra open and my emotion comes out (represented by tiny flying birds for some reason).  I see the flock of birds fly in a spiral down and around my body.  They are flying fast and pulling the energy of my body in tight so that the best way to describe it is that they skinny-fy and elongate my body that I am seeing in the meditation.  They fly down and into my left foot where they go through the loop in the Earth and back up into my body where they spiral up and land in my head.  Like a chicken coop in my cranium.  Gloria tells me, “You are not creating alone now. You are creating with the Earth, hence working with the element of gold. I want you just to practice cycling the energy and see what happens.”  She ends that statement with a smile.  So as usual…more fun ahead!

I ask her, “Why will I be working with and through the element of gold?”  “To increase you amplitude.” She responds.  Amplitude?  Is that a word?  I look it up and find the following at Merriam-Webster.com.

Fascinating!  So we have math and science combined with the quality or state of being.  All energy travels in a wave and our waves are being amped, baby!  “Why does learning to work with something specific matter?” I ask Gloria.  “You are joining forces with a part of the Earth.  Merging a part of you with a part of her.  The specificness is to learn the vibration of one thing so you will recognize the difference within your own body.  You (meaning all of us) are starting the process of merging with a higher level of vibration.  This means learning to physically interact and react to the world around you..on a deeper level then you humans already are.  You are one with her but you have separated yourselves to Experience (her emphasis).  Now you will learn how to recognize different elements of her creation around you.  To do it all at once (merge with all of Gaia) would be too overwhelming.  You each will learn specific building blocks.  Ones that you have an affinity with to start out.” She tells me.  “I have never worked with metals or stone in this lifetime.” I tell her.  “No, but the option was always there.  It was never kept from you.”  She responds.  “Is it an advantage or disadvantage that I know little or nothing about them?”  I ask her.  She laughs and says, “Neither.  Remember this is a new adventure.”

During my next meditation, I ask for more information about working with gold.  I have gone through my jewelry box and found two things with a high gold content.  The ring I mentioned last time which now needs resized if I am the wear it and a tiny thin flat gold necklace.  I hear that this is enough.  Apparently, much to my disappointment, I don’t need to be decked out like a Aztec princess in order to make a connection.  I have been wearing the necklace for a day or two at this point.  In my meditation a gold being comes to me.  He looks just like the Academy Award statue, smooth and shiny with just a hint of facial features.  “Who are you?” I ask him.  He laughs and says, “I am Gold. Who better to talk to you about it, hmm?”  “Why have you chosen me?” I ask.  “You have the ability for me to flow through you easily.”  He tells me.  “How should I go about learning how to work with you?” I ask him.  “Wear me against your skin.  Picture me melting into you and dispersing through out your body.”  As he tells me this, he runs his finger along my necklace.  I see my necklace melt into my upper chest and then see little sparks twinkle along my body as the gold disperses.  Then he starts gathering up all the gold sparks and brings them up to my heart chakra, which now looks like a glowing forge.  He puts the gold in the fire of my heart and says, “Now you can make anything you want out of it.”  The gold in the fire morphs and becomes a wide wrist cuff, then a mask, the a bunch of fine gold links and finally a gold snake arm band.  (Not random imagery, I could ponder for a page about it!)  “But I’m assuming that I am not creating jewelry…unless that is what I want.”  I state.  “Correct.  You are using the element of gold to boost you creational abilities.” He says.  “How does it do that?”  I ask.  “By the fact that you are not alone.  You are not holding yourself apart anymore.  Now you have another element that is threaded through you.”  As he tells me this, I see a gold band that goes down through me from head to toe.  I imagine for a moment what it will be like when I have more elements incorporated within me;  and get a brief glimpse of how solid I will feel.  I have that same feeling from my last meditation that I identify as self-confidence, only this time instead of surrounding me it is within and feels solid and strong.

“So I assume this is a two-way street?  As we learn to incorporate different parts of Gaia, what happens from your point of view?”  I ask Gold.  “Imagine, if you will, the joy I find at merging throughout the cells of your body, to learn the human as the human learns me.  When something melts into another, both are changed–both become part of the other until there is no discernible separation.  You are starting small. (He smiles) Your goal is to have many lifetimes full of integration while holding a physical form.  Then from there–there is always more goals.” He says with a laugh and a smile.  I tell him thank you.  He touches my chest with his finger and says, “Any time.  I am now part of you.”
