As we approach the Spring with its promise of renewal and
revival, we gladly release ourselves from the bonds of winter
and its (particularly) cold hold over our lands and our psyches.
Turning our hearts and minds towards the Sun, we replenish our
bodies and souls with the energies of Spring, looking forward to
the new growth of mother Earth and all of her offspring.
In a hundred different ways we, ritually honor Mother Earth for
her vitality, fertility, warmth and power. Through various rites of
Spring, be they tending the gardens or giving birth to a child,
dancing in sacred ceremonies or backpacking in the woods, we honor
the Earth and her energies as our sacred environment, to cherish and
to nourish; to have and to hold till death do us part....
In this issue, we have chosen the theme "Sacred energy, Sacred
space" to be our focus. With the understanding that our Earth
environment is the original Sacred Space, we honor our connection to
the Earth's energy and materiality through ritual and prayer,
ceremony and dance.
We further explore the notion of sacred space/sacred energy
within other environments as well, be they biological,
psychological, artistic or metaphysical. Understanding what
'sacred' means from all these perspectives allows us to find the
sacred within our everyday lives, within all levels of existence so
that our lives and our selves become living expressions of the
sacred impulse, the natural impulse to connect to God, Goddess, All
In this issue, we are blessed with a message from the Earth
itself, as channeled by Michael Schuster, who expresses its desire
to renew and revitalize itself through various "earth shakings" and
cyclical purifications as well as through release of its density in
vibration and form. Co-director, John Gialuco, gives his account of
his (psychological) sacred space - listening to the channeling of
spirit and their various messages.
Carol Morotti-Meeker gives her celestial forecast for the year
1994 as well as specific trends over the next several months. Debby
Starks Taylor offers part 3 of an article about the coming Earth
changes as seen through the world view of "Gendarion" and the
Seraphic Angel Ascordia talks about the importance of honoring Earth
through ritual and prayer.
The Ascended Master Daniel has graciously relinquished his
column this month to his old friend and buddy "Seth" who talks about
the body as a sacred environment in the final article of this issue.
So, we invite you, our reader, to continue to share with the
energy, wisdom and insight from our physical and non-physical
friends and...Welcome to "Across the Universe!"
Peace and Love

º THE EARTH SPEAKS º
º by Michael Schuster º
"I am the Earth. I do not entertain an ego perspective. I say
`I' because I move through the ego of this channel. I know myself
as the totality, of the constituency of the makeup of the planet you
call Earth. My focus is far different than yours. I do have an ego
structure of a kind, for otherwise I would not have an identity and
I do have an identity, but it is not translated in individualized
terms, nor is it translated in terms of a group consciousness that
you might be accustomed to.
I am energy and I am light. I am love, I am the parameters of
your emotional body. I am that I am. I know no boundaries. I am
flexible and within my flexibility and flexible nature, I merge with
probabilities in terms of what you would call future experience. I
explore these ideas within my inner mind. I converse with what you
would call dimensions surrounding the earth and within the earth.
As I come to move through vibrational shifts, I say that you are
the Earth, and I am who you are. I am not outside of yourself, I'm
quite within your imagination, your inner space. The cells that
make up your fingers are the cells of the mountain. The cells that
make up the oceans are the cells in your brains. There is an
interchange biologically, a great dance, a sharing where all aspects
of the earth share molecular structure in a way that escapes your
In the dance of the atoms and the molecules, in your atmosphere,
as you inhale, the molecules of the air become one with your body.
As you exhale, the trees take on your carbon dioxide and create
oxygen. You are the Earth. Every cell in your makeup understands
itself as the Earth. In a seeming mix up of genetic coding, if you
understand the accumulation of your cells that make up your bodily
structure, you have lost the sense of connectedness that every cell
in your body entertains and enjoys.
The makeup of Earth is quite complex. The sustaining qualities
of the continuous creation is remarkably complex, yet it is very
simple. In terms of your ego perspective, how you view the
physicality of the earth, it is a beautiful planet. In terms of how
you will come to explore the earth, you will come to recognize me as
light, as sound, as having values that you would call telepathic,
connecting you to all aspects of your surroundings. In this sense
of connectedness that the cells orient themselves to within your
body structure, they do not operate with ego, therefore they have no
orientation to time, to space, to orientation nor to identity.
I represent a matrix, a full understanding of vibration, a full
understanding of DNA and genetic makeup, that incorporates a
splicing from all other civilizations that have interacted with your
earth, that are currently allowed to interact with the earth and who
in the future will interact with the earth. In this context, I am
an experiment. Since you are part of the earth, you are all
experiments and experiments in galactic healing.
Your cells understand probabilities, your cells understand the
speed of shifting probabilities into dimensions that you would call
past and future. You will come to understand yourselves in terms of
the knowing that your cells have always enjoyed.
Your earth changes are not outside of yourself, this will become
more apparent as the vibrations accelerate, as you come to explore
your personal challenges in very individualized terms and through a
strong sense of individuality. You shall explore your challenges,
you shall break through into a sense of a group consciousness, a
sense of telepathic expansion, to, in stages, understand and grasp
that you yourselves are the Earth.
There are many facets of understanding I could explore in which
you could consider, in logical terms, your earth changes. I see
that they are emotionally based. They are physical in your terms
but your world view and how you view who and what I am is a
There are many contradictions on the earth at this time even
within groups that consider themselves concerned with the
environment. There are those that are sincere and there are those
you would consider a sham. There are those who are considerate of
the earth and those who take it for granted. There are those who
are simply ignorant of their connectedness and have no desire to
understand this idea of Self in relation to and as an aspect of the
I do not judge those persons who are ignorant of their
connection to my body. I do not judge the constituents of what I
am, for I am not in judgment of myself_but I see I must change, I
must grow, I must expand, I must heal myself and re-birth for how
else can I serve humanity. And one thing that I can say that I am,
I am committed to humanity.
I am committed to the animal kingdom, the flora and the fauna.
I am committed to the wind, to the dreams of the animals, to the
insects, to the grasslands and the sea. I'm committed to the stars
in the neighboring galaxies. I'm committed to represent an
understanding of why the earth was accelerated, why the earth was
seeded and why the earth is a school house of your local universe.
And so the Earth is changing, because the parameters that you
have set forth within your experiences of the collective
consciousness have placed a toll on my body that I am unable to
sustain. Without judgment, I am surrendering to the path of least
resistance, in the idea of earth shakings. The earth shakings that
I shall explore shall be a result of your individualized coming to
terms with who and what you are, moving through your challenges and
coming to release neuro-chemicals into the atmosphere of my body, of
my skin, if you will, that will create a sense of trembling, a sense
For I will mirror your confusion and as I come to mirror your
confusion, I shall set forth in momentum an understanding of
release, an understanding of shakings, an understanding of floods.
And how you, in turn, react to the proliferation of this shaking
shall set in motion another set of emotional releases into the
atmosphere and in cyclical fashion and in this way you will come to
learn in no uncertain terms that you are the earth.
In the vibration of my evolution, I am utilizing what you would
call "pollution" in a very creative way. I will require great water
to cleanse myself and to re-birth who and what I am. And so, he
pollution that lingers in your upper atmosphere shall create the
melting of ice caps which in turn shall be utilized by my grand plan
to integrate all aspects of the earth including what you would call
pollution, corruption and the idea of concern for the earth. That I
am embarking upon is a grand experiment. For humanity in terms of a
conscious choice of the mass consciousness has agreed and set into
motion a plan that in religious terms, takes you back to the Father.
And in ecological terms, offers you the sensibility to understand
your connectedness to the thought form that you call Earth.
And it has been the experience of many planets where they have
destroyed this link, of breath, to trees, to oxygen and back to the
Earth and trees, that they have been destroyed. And so, though you
pollute your environment, you will not allow yourselves to destroy
your world as others have destroyed theirs.
In this experiment, you are allowing yourselves the opportunity
to end this incarnational cycle. As you re-cycle your memories, as
time comes to a halt, you will end, what you call Karma, now. You
will come to an understanding of your agreement with the Earth where
I shall release you from your bonds, from your contract, if you
Where as there shall be a re-cycling of humanity of species
coming to explore the idea of physicality as you have come to
understand your flesh. In this way, Earth will be re-cycled for
future generations and as parallel aspects of my body goes in the
fourth dimension, in your terms of recognition, you will still
utilize the earth but on a different plateau.
And so, in your New Age, you will open up to the potential of
Ascension and the ideas of Ascension, you shall come to explore this
idea for those who wish to share in this idea.. And for others,
there will be an inflow of consciousness into a new third
dimensional world view. And for still others, there will be a
sharing intergalactically of the civilizations that you would call
the Pleiades, Sirius, Andromeda, Angelic.
As your Earth translates itself to a fourth dimensional world
view, the vibration will ready itself simultaneously to a sharing
that has not been explored since the beginning of time. As you come
to understand Time as a projection of your physical sense, you will
come to "un-time," to rely less on your physical senses, to
understand more your natural telepathic abilities, so as to merge
with the flowers, the trees, the air, the soil, the sand, the sea
and the breeze.
All animals, all insects, all of humanity will be seen as a
continuum of energy, a continuum of sharing, a continuum of value
fulfillment that shares with one another, to appreciate in the
process of sharing itself a grand overview of physicality, that will
be impossible in any other way, of the sharing which has always been
with you but you have been ignorant of through your journey.
As you come to explore this idea, many myths shall be shattered,
myths of separation and judgment. And you shall come to explore an
opportunity to love yourselves and in the process, love your
In this way, the Earth shall be healed. As you come to heal the
planetary Logos, you will simultaneously be welcomed into a galactic
federation where you will come to understand the constituency of the
Earth that makes up your genetic background.
You will come to understand your commitment to the Earth, your
Earth's commitment to you and the great love and the great bond that
we have always shared and enjoyed and explored together. In the
vibration of this bond, you will appreciate your breath connecting
to you through the heart to merge ultimately with what you know of
as your crown chakra and in the vibration of the rising of the
Kundalini, you will understand that the Chi, the Prana, the
vibration of All That Is through the breath. I shall celebrate with
you in these moments, that you call Ascension, your cells will
resonate with the vibration, not of density, but of light. And you
will come to recognize that you no longer can sustain the image and
the projection of your physicality.
You will spontaneously realize tremendous support available to
you from the worlds of spirit. ou will come to understand the
great sharing, the cooperative nature of the Earth itself, for any
break in the chain of ecology disrupts the entirety of the Earth and
In the vibration of this occasion, the Christed ones of all time
shall return and the totality of this momentum shall carry my body
into the vibration of a new foothold to reclaim the galactic
heritage of the Great Plan of which I've always been a part. And in
this timing, you will choose individually, now, to reach your
potential or degrees therein, you will explore in your own timing
your own Ascension.
I shall celebrate with you. You shall celebrate with me.
Consciously, we shall dance into the vibration of song, into the
vibration of love, into the vibration of sharing. This has always
been the intent of who and what I am. I speak with humbleness for I
am who you are. I know no boundaries but neither do you. I shall
leave in this timing into the ethers that sustain your world. I am
that I am. So be it."

º "Sacred Voices" º
º By John Gialuco º
Since this issue of the ATU is about `sacred energy' locations
or space I wanted to write about what and where my sacred space
tends to be. I have found this space to be in the presence of an
entity or group consciousness, as they so often have called
themselves, while sitting in a chair or on the floor in front of a
I heard my first entity (the Ascended Master Daniel) 8 years ago
in a cozy and colorful apartment with five other people including
the channeler, Amy Bortner. Prior to this event I had been reading
the Seth material, by Jane Roberts, since 1973 and I was fascinated
and longed to see a `real' entity such as Seth for all those years.
At the channeling, I quietly sat with an open mind and with
barely controlled excitement. As I tried to peer into an unknown
reality and transformation unfolding before me I flashed onto
memories of my experimental youth, searching to find a reference or
some gauge that I had used back then, to perceive this new
awakening, this introduction to a spirit guide who called himself
As the channeler's face metamorphosed into a `masculine'
appearance and took on a different kind of animation, I sensed a
slowing down of my mind. The energy in the room became more light
and I was less concerned about the environment outside the 4 walls..I
was feeling high!
Daniel looked to his left at one of the women for a few seconds
and then to another until he faced me. I was ready to jump out of
my skin! There was a rush of thoughts that begged to be processed,
but my feelings wouldn't allow it quite yet. I wanted to ask the
others in the room if they were seeing and feeling the same
phenomenon. I even tried to recall some of the reactions that Jane
Roberts' students had on meeting Seth for the first time_but
When Daniel began speaking to us I realized in that moment that
I had come a long way since 1973. Much of what had come before was
not so important now, all the books, the trips to Europe, the
questions and answers, the mysteries. they were now part of a
psychic structure to a bridge that had I started crossing years ago.
I knew, this night, that I could and would begin seeing into "the
Since that evening, I have been present to many, many
channelings. I have been privileged to see and feel the reality of
an entity or spirit being be it a Group Consciousness Complex, an
Angel, an Extraterritorial, an Ascended Master or a spirit guide.
I have also seen some people channel what they thought was a
guide or discarnate personality only to be revealed as another
aspect of themselves or an ego energy projection. But as time went
on most of them did eventually make a more valid connection.
Many entities who come through often begin the evening by
scanning the collective concerns of the people in the room,
collating the important issues and then addressing some of these
concerns later in the channeling. Some have come through to offer
specific lessons about healing the self or about past, present and
future changes on the planet. Others have come to express their
worldview or opinion about certain issues. Humor has often been
used by the entities to express their opinions and this humor has
often created a sacred energy and sacred space.
The ET's always offer a world view which is most unusual, and
not available within our everyday perceptions on Earth. I have
witnessed ET's who, having never come through a channeler before,
describe their impressions and feelings on being in front of human
beings for the first time using expressions and turns of phrase that
were most unique. Yet, in every case, they always expressed their
appreciation and love for our free will and emotional architecture
that we, as human beings, have always taken for granted.
The Angels often sprinkle their visit with concepts of love and
compassion and joyful values as understood by the Angelic realm.
They usually offer a meditation or a healing for those present using
the channeler's hands and body as an energy projector sending
(angelic) energy into the room for the benefit of all participating.
This usually take 5 or 10 minutes. I have found the angels and
their energy to be the most moving and powerful of all experiences I
have had with spirit beings.
There are also the Ascended Masters, of which I am most familiar
with, who paint an evening with one's personal and earthly
histories, both past present and future. They belong to various
brotherhoods such as The Great White Brotherhood which are in
service to the earth plane and many of their own lessons are learned
while working with human beings. They operate beyond the
restrictions of time and space (as most of the entities do) and as
such can be very help with our own progress and exploration here.
I find their energy to often be of a psychological/metaphysical
type, one that creates an intensely psychological environment. They
call their perspective a meta-psychology, one that can unite the
gaps we have about spirituality and psychology, intuition and
reason, accident and freewill, and the self and its aspects.
Another group of discarnate beings who are in line waiting to
"come through" is the various personalities that have had lives in
our historical earth probability. Jesus, Elvis, Hitler, Carl Jung,
Christopher Columbus, Janis Joplin, Ghandi, Jimi Hendrix, JFK_all of
these beings and many others, some who wouldn't be as well known,
have given their insights, their "world view" about their life while
they were here as well as their impressions about reality in this
To be sure this group often brings humor and laughter to the
people present during the channeling. Some of the mysteries
surrounding their experiences are revealed and explained in a very
open and candid way. Jimi Hendrix (now called Ankar) talks about
his music, the codes that he designed into the sound and words of
his songs which, when heard, trigger within the listener a great
deal of information about universal knowledge. He talks about the
importance of sharing and expressing our feelings to one another
(and to express our soul to each other.) He says that it is feeling
that unites the brotherhood of man and wo-man.
All of these beings have expressed and shared their love and
respect for the earth and it's occupants, whether we have 2 legs or
40, fly, walk or swim.
For some of the entities, their visitation here has been clumsy
and humorous and for others it has been easy and natural like water
falling off of a duck's back.
Most of them send just a portion of their totality, an aspect of
their identity through the channeler for their presentation to a
group. Some, however, come as a group consciousness, a merging of
concerns, of knowledge, inspiration, identity and personality all
welded together in the vibration of love and peace.
Many a person has been inspired by these lectures and a few have
been uncomfortable with the experience but never hurt or
embarrassed. The integrity between the entity, the person and the
person's guides is always of the highest order so that the intention
on the part of spirit is to enlighten, inspire and to educate all
those present for the benefit of their highest good.
Many entities operate within their dream state, others operate
within motherships just outside of our dimension. Some manage
themselves from smaller than atomic structure dimensions and a few
"hail" from places that we can't even comprehend. To be sure,
though, they are all come from the original source_from God,
Goddess, All That Is.

º "Awakening The Heart º
º By Seraphic Angel Ascordia º
º As Channeled Through Amy Bortner º
"Good evening to all of you, this is Ascordia speaking now
through this channeler. It is indeed, my pleasure to be here this
evening with all of you. I am a Seraphic angel, by design assigned
to the order of being you know of as angel, as celestial being, as
whole light being, if you will.
We exist in a dimension, which simultaneously exists in your
dimension as well as in other dimensions. We can be here and we can
be in other places at the same time. We transcend, then, your space
and time. We exist in a dimension that does not need space or time.
We are `space-less' and `time-less' if you will.
We are eternal and infinite, if you will. So we are here at all
times, at all places, for all of you to understand our being, to
understand our existence. For we have been here since the beginning
of your time, since the beginning of your space. We have been here
since the beginning of your being-ness.
So all of you here, then, are spirits in physical bodies. All
of you here are inhabiting these physical bodies for a limited time,
for a limited time only, if you will. So that there is, in fact, a
warranty or a satisfaction guaranteed billing, if you will, placed
on your life, so that you understand the terms and the requirements
and the negotiations involved in creating this life.
For this is a temporary existence as all physical forms are just
temporary. For what is truly permanent, for what is truly eternal
is you as spirit, as spiritual beings, as we then of the Angelic
kingdom are spiritual beings. You, then, have come here to inhabit
physical bodies to experience human-ness, to experience humanity, to
experience your humanity and other's humanity.
So what does that mean for all of you is to experience the
agonies and the ecstasies of your physical being, of your emotional
being, of your intellectual being, of your spiritual awarenesses.
To experience the ups and downs of your feeling, the highs and lows,
the good times and the bad times. All of these, then, are valid
experiences for you to have.
We, of the Angelic realm, are here to express to you the
possibility, however, of experiencing your humanity with more joy,
with more ecstasy and with more bliss. To experience, then, the
playfulness, the lightness and the cheerfulness of your existence
more and more. "Be like little children," said the Christ, "Be like
the child and enter the kingdom of God,"
And so we of the Angelic realm are here to say to again be like
the little child and enter into the kingdom of God as a child will
and has and will always do. So take on, then, the qualities of the
child that lives within and without. Take on the qualities of
playfulness, of joy, of candor, of spontaneity, of trusting your
impulses, of trusting your good impulses, of trusting your creative
impulses, of giving yourself the `go-ahead' to explore, to take
risks, to be daring, to be creative.
These, then, are all facets of the child, of the child within
you. For all of you still have the child within, that little part
of you that cries out to be playful, to be joyful, to take a break
from the daily routine, to explore and to discover anew the joys and
delights of existence. This, is the child within that beats within
all of your hearts. That beats within the rhythm of all of your
So we say that for you to contact the child within is to play
more often, to give yourself a break today, to have fun, and to have
fun in the process of self-discovery and the discovery of other
selves and their self-discovery. So you can remember how to be like
a child by contacting your heart, by giving energy to your heart
These, then, are the recommendations that we give to all of you
at this time to never forget, then, the child within. For the
child, then, is truly a representation of God, Goddess, All That Is,
that does truly exist within all of you. So cherish the child
within, nourish the child within, and activate the child within in
those ways that we are suggesting.
We give you this Valentine Card to you, we say "We Love You," we
say "We Cherish You," we say "we nourish and support you all the
time." We send you energy constantly and consistently now from the
Angelic realm to all of you. When you wake up in the morning
feeling refreshed and alive and well rested, that is because your
guardian angel has helped you revive yourself, you see.
When you experience the miracles of daily living, the small
blessings and the little gifts and the coincidences and the
synchronicities, that is because your guides and guardian angels are
there to create them for you. And so what we are saying is that we
are always here to offer you our gifts, our blessings, not only then
on Valentine's Day but on every day. It is truly a miracle, then,
that we can come through this channeler this evening to speak to you
in this fashion, to be so intimate with you in this way. For we, of
the Angelic realm, usually do not make ourselves known except in
intuitive fashion, we have usually gone through other channels, so
to speak. We've gone through other ways in the past to make
But more and more of you will feel our presence, will feel our
presents to you and blessings as we continue to pour our love to the
earth at this time, in these times, in these times of great change
As you know now, the Earth itself is going through a great
upheaval, a great releasing of its own tiredness, stress and
tensions of the day, of the week, of the month, of the year, of the
decade, of the century and of the eons that it has experienced
itself through the universe and `across the universe.' The Earth,
now, is shaking off the chains of the past, the shackles and bonds,
the tired feelings, of stale emotions, of old feelings, thoughts and
beliefs that no longer need to exist on the planet.
For this is a time now when the Earth itself wants to be more
joyful, when the earth itself wants to be more blissful and more
ecstatic. And to express those energies more and more through
harmony of nature and all things natural, through the creation of a
more beatific land, for a more harmonious land and for a place,
then, where all sentient beings, for all conscious beings can come
together in a more peaceful, in a more graceful and harmonious
You, then, are now learning to be that way for yourself, to
learn peace, then, within the heart and mind. To become more
graceful in your everyday activities, to be grateful for your
miracles and for your blessings. And to express this gratitude to
all around you and to give thanks for their `being-ness' as well.
And so we extend, then, not only our love to you, but to your pets
and to your plants and to your minerals and to your furniture and to
your home and to your cars and to all things then that exist on the
earth plane for all things, then, created on the earth plane are of
the earth itself, are made ultimately from the earth itself.
You, in your earth bodies are made of earth substance. Cars, in
their car bodies are made, ultimately, from earth substance. Food,
then is created from plant substance which comes from the earth
substance. So all of you here are made from the clay, from the
dirt, from the very nature of the earth itself and so we suggest
then that you give thanks to the Earth, that you honor the Earth,
and sanctify the Earth as your true Mother and true Father. For the
Earth itself has created the body that you inhabit at this time, for
this limited time only. So you must thank the Earth, then, for
giving you the body that you have in its way, shape and form. For
it is the ultimate creator of your experience in this physical
dimension, in this particular dimension.
There will be other dimensions that you will experience on other
planets, in other lifetimes, in other focuses, in other bodies, and
so you will have an opportunity in those times to also give thanks
and to be grateful for the blessings of that life and that life
So we of the Angelic realm are here to just remind you of the
truth of your being, the truth that you are spirit in the flesh, in
a flesh created by the flesh of the Earth itself, and that to create
the miracle of life, one needs to honor the miracle of life itself
and honor the sacredness of the earth plane itself.
We then create rituals continually that honor our dimension,
that honors God, Goddess, All That Is, that honors all the other
species and orders of Angelic beings and that ultimately honor the
human and the extra-terrestrial and all forms of sentient beingness
that God, Goddess, All That Is has created within its own
understanding of joy, bliss and ecstasy.
So we suggest that you continue in creating rituals with your
friends, with your neighbors, with your church groups, with your
civic organizations, to honor the Earth, to honor the wind and the
sun, the earth and the fire, the wood, the mountains, the lakes and
the beaches and the trees and the flowers and all the beings that
live in nature itself.
This, then, will be a time of honoring nature and we see then,
that the Springtime will be a time of fully blossoming and emerging
from the shell of winter, from the cocoon of hibernation, from this
time in which you are surrounded by a beautiful shell of light, of
white light, of the snow-white light that is a time of protection,
that is a time of reflection, that is a time of looking into the
self and bringing the light from the self out into the Earth's light
And so we say, that allow this time it's due, allow the snow to
fall, and allow it to surround you in its beautiful light
protection. Feel the coziness and the warmth of the hearth, of the
fires of the heart and of the fires of our hearts and of our love as
we send our energy to you. And so it is my pleasure to be able to

º Creating Sacred SpaceThrough Ritual And Art º
º by Katherine Stiles Cogan º
What is Sacred Space, exactly? It is an emotional, mental or
physical environment that is dedicated to a connection and
continuity with "God," the higher force, and the Source of all
energy. As for Ritual, its very nature is anchored in the physical,
moving objects and humans, establishing tradition and pattern
through repetition and regularity and ending in an altered state.
A Ritual can be something as simple as a morning cup of coffee
and sitting quietly to `center.'It can be a regular twilight walk
on a woodsy path that leads to a bird sanctuary. It can be calling
home on Sunday or making a daily journal entry with the same old
pen. Each simple act of choice to return and renew is an act of the
truest Ritual and its playing out regularly imbues the space around
it with an energy that is retained.
On a more esoteric and complex cultural side is the Catholic
mass, the Lakota sweat ceremony, and the Shaman's incantation to the
demon of his tribesman's fever. Whether personal or tribal, the
same underlying structure exists, a decisiveness and a belief system
that defies the temporary and the factual.
The Ritual commitment to repetition is essentially a regularly
confirmed `contract with the Higher Self,' to relax within the
reassuring calm of `sameness,' yet, opening up to the non-rational,
receiving inspiration, illumination and even information for the
mundane daily path. Ritual is trusting transcendence, leaving the
mask of limited personality behind, and merging with the universal
one_like water, rushing, to fill the crevices of a void.
Like the eternal movement of water, Ritual itself is movement in
a very Sacred Space. With great beauty, it moves symbolic objects
and human consciousness from one state of being to another. Through
its spiraling movement, it transforms the surrounding space with
sanctity and confirms our decision to make it so.
As humans, we have the innate characteristic of wanting to
create form, to have organization, to "make sense of things." We
must also have movement if we are to survive, grow and transcend
spiritually. Movement and form are actually who we are. If you
could look through a cosmic microscope at humans, you would see
creatures generating form and movement as assiduously as ants
building anthills before a summer rain.
The intrinsic need for form and movement also has an inner
logic, a pattern that can be traced throughout our existence. It is
the syntax of our languages, our sciences and disciplines through
various ages and cultures. It is cause and effect, evolution and
karma, and even the quantum worldview of sub-atomic particles
magnetized into relationship. It is the trinity, the 1,2,3, the
dynamic power of the triangle pyramid. It is the eternal human myth
with a beginning, a middle and an end.
But in this driving energy, begging to be released into familiar
structure, is the paradox of the non-rational itself. The altered
sate, the elevated consciousness, the connection with spirit, is
also released within the confines of superior and disciplined
structure. This is the gold treasure within the
rational-non-rational paradox of Ritual and also of Art. Where
these two convene, there will be transcendence. And where Art is
brought into the service of Ritual, there will be Sacred Spaces
created which have great power, inspiration and creative volition.
From our microscope, we can also see that man has created this
thing called Art, and that the nature of this multi-faceted set of
disciplines in its distilled essence is the mother-father-form-maker
for all other forms and structures.
Art, at its core, has the principles of integration and
unification of all available elements and its purpose is to bring
all these interlocking layers of relationships towards a single
point of focus with the power and precision of a laser beam.
This is a description of a `masterpiece.' It is also a laying
out of a blueprint, a matrix for the processes of Creativity,
Spiritual Transformation and the most powerful tools with which to
create every nook and cranny or our world.
Because we live in a time that pulls on our spiritual energy,
the need for Sacred Space, and its sister, Ritual, is greater than
ever before. In a world deeply deprived of sacred environments
which nurture and center and inspire us onward, we need to relocate
or create them anew.
Through Ritual and Art, and through creating sacredness in our
every daily act, we will transform our world over from the old and
outworn and into the vital and continuously fertile.

º Mapping your Body with Sacred Places º
º by Ute Arnold º
(This exercise was inspired by and created in honor of Jean Houston,
a Mystery School Teacher who taught me powerfully.)
How would you like to travel to far away places, places said to
be sacred like Mount Shasta in California; the Taj Mahal in India;
the Isle of Iona in Scotland or the pyramids in Egypt or Peru?
Sacred places are infused with special energy fields that
vibrate at different frequency levels than the surrounding locales.
They are healing sites infused with the powerful energies of Mother
Earth as well as the knowledge and wisdom of ancient peoples who
were intimately connected with the earth's healing energies. These
sites have been infused for millenniums with the thoughts, feelings
and actions of the people who lived or traveled there.
Sacred places offer to realign us, to balance and to heal us.
They contain the living charge of the ancestor and a doorway to the
past. Imagine turning your body into a treasure map of your
favorite sacred places, allowing your psyche to go on a real
archaeological dig in which different civilizations reveal
themselves to you.
Your sacred place could signal a place of entry into the
interior of the world within you, a restorative world that holds the
balance between your psyche and your body.
"Would you like to visit such a sacred place and utilize the
wisdom and energies from this ancient center? Yes? Then let's go!"
-Sit or lie down in a comfortable position, within a comfortable
environment such as your bedroom, study or garden. (This
exercise will charge this space with sacred energy.)
-Inhale and exhale the breath with ease.
-Continue breathing for several minutes,
- Allow the breath to wash over your entire body, starting at the
top of your head, energizing and invigorating each part of your
body from the head all the way down to the toes.
-Focus on releasing energy into the body and sense new levels of
excitement as energy is released into thousands of your cells.
Sense the energy releasing, particularly into your brain,
(especially the two brain halves and the pituitary gland). Now,
feel your brain being activated and enhanced.
-Now, travel with excitement and clarity of perception, such as
you have never known before, to a place on this planet Earth, to
a culture you have always wanted to know more about. Perhaps it
is Stonehenge in England or the Pyramids in Egypt or the Sacred
Peruvian mountain Macchu Piccu.
-Allow yourself vision time...questing time so that your body,
your psyche becomes a dreaming place, going down deeper and
deeper..into another time, another space. In this holy space,
the transcendental energies comes through and enter your body.
-Notice your expectations, thoughts, feelings and beliefs.
Finally, bring this sacred site into clear vision.
-Notice the sounds...and colors...fragrances and smells. You
feel the breath of the air...in your hair...on your skin..
-Notice the buildings, the people, landscape and architecture Let
the memories of the people who have gone there before you rise
and let their harmonizing force and energy go back and forth
between you, exchanging essence, inspiration and communion.
-This place that you are in is now coming alive! All around you,
are animal spirits, plant spirits, water and rock spirits.
-Who talks to you? What do they say? What is your reply?
-Who flies, or creeps, or crawls or dances past you?
-You are meeting at a level of healing forces from nature and the
energies of these forces surround you and become a part of you.
Concentrate on these sacred energies and feel how they enter your
body, mind and emotions.
-You find yourself in a place of profound mystery. A strange and
powerful silence envelops you.
-Now anchor this chosen mystery site and the energy and the
wisdom of the ancients by becoming aware of that part of your
body that naturally calls out to embrace it, to hold it forever
in its cellular memory. It may be your throat or pelvis or any
other part of your body. If you are familiar with the Chakras
(body energy centers), you could focus on one of them and bring
the energy of your sacred site into it.
Visualize this site slowly forming itself over your chakra center
or that part of your body that calls out for its energy. Hold the
visualization as long as you can. Then release the vision and trust
that you have instilled its energies into your very cells and
cellular memory. You can do this exercise every few weeks to
explore further, storing sacred places in your body and transforming
it/you into a sacred landscape_for you are discovering that you can
live on many levels of reality of which your everyday, conscious
awareness is just one.

Planetary Waves of Change
As channeled through Debby Starks Taylor
"Tribal mentality was the genesis of individuation, groups
forming together to strengthen individuals, groups experiencing life
so that individuals could develop. So group orientations spawned,
rather that spurned, development of individual consciousness. See
how it is coming full circle. Yes, now mankind has developed to the
point where his individual consciousness is preparing to accelerate
through the dynamics of all that is taking place now socially.
Individual awareness is flourishing, coming to a point of defiance
of fear-based, fear-motivated, fear-oriented social systems.
The perception [by some] is that to move into group situations
is to avoid correction of the fear-based mentality to move into
organizations with individuals is to blend too thoroughly so that
individual consciousness is lost. Individuated consciousness
[seems] threatened somehow by group organic behavior. And we stress
this organic aspect for we see that the body needs separate systems
to function completely and perfectly as a whole and yet each one
still maintains its own autonomy, maintains it own ability to
function separately from the others. So it is a paradox, separate
along with the whole, the separate exists in the context of the
whole. As a whole there is need for more perception of the benefits
of tribal mentality. As you gather many individuals together who
are strongly and individually conscious, who are autonomous in their
understanding of what it is to be connected within, gathering all
these together brings greater strength to a tribal situation. We
stress the term "tribal" because there is a need for a more complete
sense of cooperation.. a more organic, simplified functioning as a
whole. Try to imagine yourself being an organ in the body and how
interdependent you are with other facets of the physical body and
yet how responsive.. how mutually responsive all systems are within
the body. Defenses create attack in the body. Resistance from one
system creates disharmony, imbalance and great stress in other
systems. When anything is held back that is needed for the entire
being to flow there is often chaos and a breaking down of another
system as a whole. Try to think organically as you move through
this time. Try recognizing that there is connection formed even
now. The mind will attempt to fool you that there are many
divisions and separations. To become aware of how to maintain your
individual consciousness and yet allow yourself to move more
organically, functioning with others as a free flying unit of
mutually responsive energy is what is needed in the times ahead.
This is where trusting and self-confidence come in. You see if you
feel secure enough as an individual unit of consciousness you can
trust and allow yourself to be interfacing with others. Surrender
is not self-annihilation. Surrender is not denial of your needs.
Surrender is not a denouncing of your needs, nor a repressing or a
subjugation of your needs. You are not giving anything up by
surrendering. You are adding to yourself by surrendering.
Surrendering can be perceived of as softening boundaries, still
maintaining boundaries and yet softening the requirements of those
boundaries. Seeing that through the interface it is like a cell
being fed by the bloodstream. We see you need to take things in and
send things out to continue functioning as a separate cell or unit.
Should you block any receiving or sending you could malnourish
yourself as a cell. See yourselves as cells in this way. You will
understand what it is to maintain personal integrity, to maintain a
sense of self and yet still feel that there can be a flux, an ebb
and a flow with others more completely. How you work this out in
your individual expression is where free will comes in. But there
is need to be more responsive to each others needs, to be more tuned
in to each others needs, so this mutual respect can exist. It is
difficult to let down or to soften boundaries with someone who you
can tell has no concept of what you need and has no concept, or
little, of what they need themselves.
So there needs to be more sensitivity in all those who are
attempting to have this freer flow of trust. Trust is not a blatant
collapsing of your boundaries to someone that you suspect may be
hostile or may be like a parasite coming in to suck the energy from
you. Parasitical (human) beings are those who feel that they have
insufficient resources within themselves so they need to drain them
from others. So be selective, be discerning, be kind to yourselves
as you attempt this blending. Do not be disturbed if blending of
systems at times does not work or function correctly. It is as
though we are all being transplants, we are all experiencing
ourselves as transplants into a foreign body. It is foreign to us
to feel that we are truly organic. We have little tastes of it here
and there, we have tastes of it in group situations that are working
and yet in terms of daily living on an ongoing basis, it is rare for
individuals to feel that this moves smoothly, continuously. But it
will become the norm in the times ahead to move and function
smoothly with others in an organic way so that all of God's energies
can be utilized and all of God's resources can be extended to all.
"Hands Across America was no accident in the mind of God. We
see a need for individuals to extend themselves to each others for
God's resources to reach all. Not just through forms of charity but
through giving and receiving of all kinds so that none are isolated,
none are cut off. Poverty and deprivation disappear automatically.
There is no need to rub out, eradicate or stamp out crime or
poverty. They will become obsolete in due time."

º "Sacred Sites of Mother Earth º
º Doorways to Spiritual Growth" º
º by Jim McStravick and Amy Bortner º
What makes a sacred site sacred? For those of us brought up in
any of the traditional western religions, the answer had to do with
the veneration of certain historic locales over many generations.
When we were children, we were told by those in religious authority
that at such and such a place, this or that individual met with a
vision, a personage, or entity whose origin was divine, hence,
making that place sacred. What about now? The now being broadly
defined by what we call the New Age.
Now we know we are part of a greater cosmic whole, a greater
multi-dimensional reality certainly infinitely larger than the
quaint though beautiful Heaven-Earth-Hell model we were told as
children to explain the universe and its divine beginnings. Now we
understand that we live in a dimension of time-space that is
basically composed of moving energy and light. That the Heaven and
Hell we experience is the one that we make and that we create, or
rather, co-create our reality by projecting our thoughts and beliefs
into a dimension that acts to coalesce energy into form. This
time-space reality is actually a three-dimensional holographic field
upon which energy is projected and through which energy moves,
grows, changes appears and disappears and such a field exists within
a continuum of multi-dimensions and infinite realities. As we
understand our reality to be of one of many space-time dimensions
and that we are actually multi-dimensional, we co-exist
simultaneously then, within infinite dimensions with different
identities, forms and energy fields. Whether you are talking about
a molecule, a person, a dolphin, a planet or a star, all participate
in a multi-dimensional universe created from and for an infinite
source of energy and energy pattern. All living forms, including
the human form, then, are manifested and actualized energy fields
within a particularized dimension (or focus) which we perceive to be
Recent advances in science as well as ancient metaphysical texts
indicate and demonstrate that there are more subtler, non-physical
bodies i.e. energy fields that surround and interpenetrate the
physical body indicated by the categories of astral, etheric, mental
, emotional, causal and ketheric bodies. Humans, animals, plants,
as well as the Earth, moon and stars partake of these subtle energy
fields. Kirlian photography as well as the perceptions of psychics,
intuitives and mediums have shown us that these energy fields and
their auric emanations do indeed exist. These energy fields or
auras surround and interpenetrate the human body and express
themselves as great color, pattern and energy movement.
Within the form of all organized consciousness, within the body
of all sentient beings and within the physical body of all human
beings, then, are conduits, pathways and connections between these
physical and non-physical energy bodies. These connections are
called energy vortices or chakras that spin at different speeds,
connecting to different energy frequencies and therefore connecting
to different dimensions. These chakras are connected by a complex
web of paths or circuitry (energy meridians) that connect every part
of the body to every other part as well as to every other subtle
(non-physical) body. This energy grillwork of bio-electric and
electro-magnetic circuitry and major/minor chakras creates the field
upon which energy can move, grow and coalesce.
These interdimensional connections between the subtle bodies
vis a vis the chakras exist for the purpose of energy and
information exchange as well as for co-ordinating the growth and
development of the (soul) being inhabiting the body. Just as there
are connections or pathways between the different energy bodies
within sentient form and just as there are connections maintained
between the physical and non-physical dimensions through the chakra
and meridian system, there are connections or pathways and chakras
that are located on the body of our planet Earth-Gaia-Terra that
connect it to other dimensions and frequencies as well. Such energy
vortices or chakras are more commonly known as power centers or
co-ordinate points and are all connected to and by an
electro-magnetic grid system of "ley" lines. These power centers or
energy sites are the Earth's chakras. And it is around these points
that both natural and man made sacred sites have come into being.
Sedona, Arizona, Niagra Falls, NY, and the Grand Canyon are
examples of natural power centers and sacred sites The pyramids of
Giza in Egypt or in Tikal, Quatemala, the Henges in England, the
Towers in Zimbabwe, Africa and the Native American burial mounds
found throughout the United States are all examples of man made
sites developed for spiritual practice and sacred ritual that were
built upon powerful energy centers of the earth.
Sacred sites have always been created or honored as places of
great power. Used for sacred ritual and prayer, for invocation and
manifestation, they were aids to connecting to other dimensions,
realms and planets and for literally aiding the projection of
consciousness into other dimensions. Many sacred sites were created
to serve a more earthly purpose, as well, to function as gigantic
calendars, maps and calculating devices for the peoples of an
Art, Science and Magic have all been utilized and developed by
the proper use of these sites. These power centers or Earth chakras
emanate certain kinds of energy that can be measure and categorized.
It has been determined that there are three types of energy that
coalesce around these sites, electric, magnetic and
electro-magnetic. These energies are very strong and the
frequencies are measurably greater than their surrounding locales.
The power of these centers is literally palpable as well as
measurable and one can easily sense the energy in varying degrees
through right attunement, prayer or meditation. It has been
discovered that by attuning or meditating to the energies of a
sacred site, one can connect and travel to other dimensions, contact
other-dimensional beings, receive psychic impression from the past,
present or future, connect to one's past lives (alternate focuses),
Higher Self, Spirit Guides or Guardian Angels. Generally speaking,
attuning to the energies of a sacred site, triggers one's expansion
of awareness and confirms ones interconnectedness to other
dimensions and realities ultimately connecting one to the whole.
Indeed, it is one of the more profound experiences that we can have
here on the earth and one comes away from such an experience utterly
changed and profoundly moved.
Page Bryant, in her book, "Terravision," offers an excellent
listing of sacred sites around the world and a more detailed but
certainly not complete list for North America. Ms.Bryant also gives
excellent advice on how to approach a sacred site ( with the proper
attitude and etiquette.) It is necessary and proper to ask
permission and then to state out loud one's intention before
proceeding to the site. One's intention can be simply to experience
the energies or for utilizing the energies for healing, balancing
and energizing or for creating a greater contact with other
dimensional beings and intelliegences. Once there, one should
meditate briefly before entering a sacred site and again clarify
ones purpose for entry. All sites are cared for by spiritual
guardians and the sites in North America ("Turtle Island" to the
indigenous peoples), are cared for by Native American spirits.
So, while at the site, it is proper to give thanks to the
guardian spirit by a ritual show of gratitude. Usually an offering
of fragrant herbs or tobacco will be sufficient. When one leaves,
the site should be in the same condition as one has entered it,
untouched yet revered and honored. There are many sacred sites
right here in the Philadelphia area, more specifically within the
Fairmount Park system. Such areas as the Belmont Plateau, the Art
Museum area and the Wissahickon Park harbor sacred energies and
The Wissahickon Creek and surrounding Valley Green are areas
that were used by the earlier Native Americans for tribal meeting
places, "look-out" posts, sacred ritual and for burial ceremonies.
This area is filled with power spots and there are a number of areas
along the Wissahickon Creek that are highly charged energy centers
or points. (I will let the reader discover them for him/herself.)
Another site that is close by is Council Rock in Lorimar Park right
off the Pennypack Creek in Cheltenham Township. Council Rock is a
huge rock formation that was also used as a meeting place by Native
Americans and is a lovely environment with very peaceful energy.
Going some distance away from the Delaware Valley, we find
Boulder Field in Hickory Run State Park. The field is the remains
of a glacial moraine and the energy is quite concentrated in this
A similar structure and energy is to be found at Ringing Rocks
at the Ringing Rocks Sate Park. (Page Bryant mentions this site in
her book "Terravision") For more information, it is best to refer to
one of the several excellent books out on the market that describe
the sacred sites in great detail. The following are books about
sites in North America.

How's 1994 been for you so far? Okay. Here are a few pointers
from two different astrological traditions that indicate "which way
the wind will be blowing" for the year 1994. Let us look at the
Eastern tradition first and then examine our own Western tradition
so as to get a more complete astrological perspective. More from
two different astrological traditions that indicate "which way the
wind will be blowing" for the year 1994. Let us look at the Eastern
tradition first and then examine our own Western tradition so as to
get a more complete astrological perspective. More specifically, we
will look at the Chinese tradition to find out more about the year
1994 as it represents the Chinese Year of the Dog.
The Chinese New Year was celebrated on February 10, 1994
beginning on the New Moon in the sign of Aquarius. (The Chinese New
Year always begins on the New Moon.) This celebration marks the
beginning of the Chinese Year of the (Wood) Dog and continues until
January 30, 1995.
In the Chinese tradition, each year is associated with one of
the 12 (animal) signs and with one of the five elements or qualities
... earth, fire, water, metal and wood. The year 1994 is associated
with the animal Dog and the element Wood.
Though the year of the Dog comes around every 12 years, the year
of the Wood Dog comes around every sixty years, so that only those
born in the year 1934 or 1994 would be considered "Wood-Dogs." A
person who is a `wood-dog' is honest, considerate and well-liked,
enchanting, warmhearted and even tempered. A'wood-dog' makes close
and lasting relationships with people, seeks intellectual
stimulation and will work hard to develop him/herself. Stable and
generous of nature, they will seek growth, balance and beauty in
their environment. Attracted to money and success, but not into
materialism, "wood- dogs" have an aptitude for dealing with people
from all walks of life but like to deal with partnerships and
powerful affiliates. They are also watchful, worrisome and
protective of hearth and home. The culminating period of this year
is the Spring, as the sign of the Dog is associated with the
Springtime. The Springtime will bring in great growth and
The temper of the times in the year of the Wood-Dog calls for
people to reassess their values, polish their virtues and persuade
others to join forces against tyranny and unrest. It is also a year
that you may feel pessimistic, anxious and worrisome about the
future. Many will be protective of hearth and home. There will be
a sense of uneasiness with possible clashes, upheavals and
rebellions. Some people may advocate growth and renewal yet bite
off more than they can chew and drift from one project to another.
The mood may be a bit resolute and tense with plenty of political
action A move towards a more liberal approach to government and
politics is likely. Although we may be a bit on the defensive,
generosity and goodwill will also be present. Now, let us look at
our Western astrological perspective. Until the end of 1995, the
planet Saturn will reside in the sign of Pisces.
So what does that mean for you? If you have the Sun, Moon,
Ascendant (rising sign) or any planet or sensitive point in your
natal horoscope in the first ll degrees of any mutable sign -
Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces, then Saturn (the Cosmic
Teacher) is bringing you some lessons to structure and solidify
certain areas of your life. These next two years will give all of
you opportunities to give form and realization to your dreams,
fantasies and desires. Here are some guidelines to remember:
No suffering allowed (aloud). Look at those points in your life
where you may identify yourself as a victim. Re-emerge, suffering
prevents you from relating to others. Take back your power.
Express your heart's desire. Make a wish list. Remember the laws
Accept the help the universe brings. If you don't accept help,
you will be isolated in your pain and sorrow. Learn to receive.
Participate in the solution Discover novel ways to solve problems.
Go after what you want. Give structure and form to your dreams.
Give back and forgive. Live to enjoy and give thanks.
Now let us continue by briefly describing the effects of the
solar and lunar eclipses coming up in May 1994. The solar eclipse
will occur on May 10 at 1:07 PM EDT. at 19 degrees, 48 minutes
Taurus. It joins the transiting moon's South Node signaling that
this is a time to release old attitudes about your values and
thoughts on comfort, possessions, the foods you enjoy and your ideas
about love and romance.
The lunar eclipse comes in on May 24 at 11:34 PM EDT. At 3
degrees, 43 minutes Sagittarius. This indicates a time to release
old ways of thinking and negative philosophies and religious beliefs
and attitudes about people from cultures other than your own. This
eclipse is in conjunction with Venus so it may be difficult to
harmonize your emotions with what and/or whom you love and with your
concept of relationships. The lunar eclipse in conjunction with
Venus also creates a need for you to re-evaluate and harmonize
yourself with what you value.
So, "Tack those sails carefully" and have a great life! C.

"Now_dictation. The body is a spiritual, psychic and social
statement, biologically spoken. It is obviously private, yet it
cannot be concealed, in that "it is where you are," in usual terms.
The individual body is what it is because it exists in the
context of others like it. By this I mean that a given present body
presupposes a biological past of like creatures and intent. To
one extent or another, all creatures use language (underlined),
implying a far vaster socio-biological relationship than is usually
While each individual springs privately into the world at birth,
then, each birth also represents quite literally an effort, a
triumphant one_on the part of each member of each species, for the
delicate balance of life requires for each birth quite precise
conditions that no one species can guarantee alone, even to its own
kind. The grain must grow. The animals must produce. The plants
must do their part. Photosynthesis, in those terms, reign.
The seasons must retain some stability. The rains must fall,
but not too much, the storms must rage, but not too devastatingly.
Behind all of this lies a biological and psychic cooperative
Cells possess "social" characteristics. They have a tendency to
unite with others. They naturally communicate. They naturally want
to move. Period. In making such statements I am not personifying
the cell, for the desire for communication and motion does not
belong to man, or even animals, alone. Man's desire to journey into
other worlds is in its way as natural as the plant's urge to turn
it's leaves towards the sun.
Man's physical world, with all of its civilizations and cultural
aspects, and even with its technologies and sciences, basically
represents the species' innate drive to communicate, to move onward,
to create, and to objectify sensed inner realities. The most
private life imaginable is a very social affair. The most secluded
recluse must still depend upon the biological sociability of not
only his own cells, but of the natural world with all of its
The body, then, no matter how private, is also a public, social,
biological statement. A spoken sentence has a certain structure in
any language. It presupposes a mouth and a tongue, the kind of
physical organization necessary; a mind; a certain kind of world in
which sounds have a meaning; and a very precise, quite practical
knowledge of the nature of sounds, the combination of their
patterns, the use of repetition, and a knowledge of the nervous
system. Few of my readers possess such conscious knowledge, yet the
majority speak quite well.
In one way or another, therefore, it certainly seems that your
body possesses a kind of quite pragmatic information, and acts upon
it. You can express almost any idea that you want in vocal terms,
even if you have hardly any conception at all in the way in which
your own speech is executed.
The body is geared then to act. It is pragmatically practical,
and above all it wants to explore and communicate. Communication
implies a social nature. The body has within it inherently
everything necessary for its own defense. The body itself will
tease the body to speak, to crawl and walk, to see its fellows.
Through biological communication the child's cells are made aware of
its physical environment, the temperature, air pressure, weather
conditions, food supplies and the body reacts to these conditions,
making some adjustments with great rapidity.
At cellular levels the world exists with a kind of social
interchange, in which the birth and death of cells are known to all
others, and in which the death of a frog and a star gain equal
weight. But at your level of activity your thoughts, feelings and
intents, however private, form part of the inner environment of
communication. This inner environment is as pertinent and vital to
the species' well-being as is the physical one. It represents the
psychic, mass bank of potential, even as the planet provides a
physical bank of potential. When there is an earthquake in another
area of the world, the land mass of your own country is one way or
another affected. When there are psychic earthquakes in other areas
of the world, then you are also affected, and usually to the same
In the same way, if one portion of your own body is injured,
then other portions feel the effects of the wound. An earthquake
can be a disaster in the area where it occurs, even though its
existence corrects imbalances, and therefore promotes the life of
the planet. Emergency actions are quite rigorous in the immediate
area of an earthquake, and aid is sent in from other countries.
When an area of the body "erupts," there are also emergency measures
taken locally, and aid sent in from other portions of the body to
the afflicted parts.
The physical eruption, while it may appear to be a disaster in
the area of the disease, is also, however, a part of the body's
defense system, taken to insure the whole balance of the body.
Biologically, illness therefore represents the overall body defense
system at work.
I am trying to put this simply_but without some illness, the
body could not endure. Give us a moment..First of all the body must
be in a state constant change, making decisions far to fast for you
to follow: adjusting hormonal levels, maintaining balances between
all of its systems; not only in relation to itself_the body_but to
an environment that is also in constant change
At biological levels the body often produces its own
"preventative medicine," or "inoculations," by seeking out, for
example, new or foreign substances in its environments [that are]
due to nature, science or technology; it assimilates such properties
in small doses, coming down with an "illness" which, when left
alone, would soon vanish as the body utilized what it could [of it],
or socialized "a seeming invader."The person might feel indisposed,
but in such ways the body assimilate and uses properties that would
otherwise be called alien ones. It immunizes itself through such
methods. The body, however, exists with the mind to contend
with, and the mind produces an inner environment of concepts. The
cells that compose the body do not try to make sense of the cultural
world. They rely upon interpretation, therefore, for the existence
of threats of non-biological nature. So they depend upon your
assessments. If that assessment correlates with biological ones,
you have a good working relationship with the body. It can act
swiftly and clearly. When you sense threat or danger for which the
body can find no biological correlation, even as through cellular
communication it scans the environment physically, then it must rely
upon your assessment and react to danger conditions. The body will,
therefore, react to imagined dangers to some degree, as well as to
those that are biologically pertinent. Its defense system often
becomes overexerted as a result.
The body's defense system is automatic, and yet to a certain
degree, it is a secondary rather than primary system, coming into
mobilization as such only when the body is threatened.
The body is, therefore, quite well equipped to deal with its
physical stance in the physical world, and its defense systems are
unerring in that respect. Your conscious mind, however, directs
your temporal perception and interprets that perception, organizing
it into mental patterns. The body, again, must depend upon those
interpretations. The biological basis of all life is a loving,
divine and cooperative one, and presupposes a safe physical stance
from which any member of any species feels actively free to seek out
its needs and to communicate with others of its kind."
(11:09 to 11:35) The body's main purpose is not only to survive
but to maintain a quality of existence at certain levels and that
quality itself promotes health and fulfillment. A definite
pertinent fear alerts the body, and allows it to react completely
and naturally. You might be reading a newspaper headline, for
example, as you cross a busy street. Long before you are
consciously aware of the circumstances, your body might leap out of
the path of an approaching car. The body is doing what it is
supposed to do. Though consciously you were not afraid , there was
a biologically pertinent fear that was acted upon. If, however, you
dwell mentally in a generalized environment of fear, the body is
given no clear line of action, allowed no appropriate response.
Look at it this way: An animal, not necessarily a wild one in some
native forest, but an ordinary dog or cat, reacts in a certain
fashion. It is alert to everything in its environment. A cat does
not anticipate danger from a penned dog four blocks away, however,
nor bother wondering what would happen if that dog were to escape
and find the cat's cozy yard. Many people, however, do not pay
attention to everything in their environment, but through their
beliefs concentrate only upon "the ferocious dog four blocks away."
That is, they do not respond to what is physically present or
perceivable in either space or time, but instead dwell upon the
threats that may or may not exist, ignoring at the same time other
pertinent data that are immediately at hand.
The mind then signals threat-but a threat that is nowhere
physically present, so that the body cannot clearly respond. It
therefore reacts to a pseudothreatening situation, and is caught
between gears, so to speak, with resulting biological confusion.
The body's responses must be specific.

DECEMBER SOLSTICE 1993
By Ray Hearne
Oh Gaia! We hold fragrant candles to your heart
To honor the warmth and love that gave us our start
Upon this sweet and earthly plane.
Breeze echoing whistle song fills our breast
Lightening balls brand tree tops with faire fire
Water races out of stream beds with impassioned zest
Sand woos granite in earthquakes of desire!
Mother Earth! In flesh we dance across your land
Now bristling with the frost that scatters sight
The eve of longest dark is vanquished by our hand
Of candle bearers who praise the Inner Light
Carrying us into the star-blessed night.

by Linda Wirta
And there were fairies
slivers in wings.
sprinkles of sparkly dust floating
descending in formations of silvery mists
on my curly tendrils
the bow of my mouth
eventually filling the crevices of my Being
My eyes twinkle simultaneously
with Ancient Wisdom
I released a sigh of knowingness
Creatures of the forest
hoofed and clawed
kiss my enchanted Being in a
magical moment of stillness
Spirits united of feather
and skin alike
Captured amidst a whoosh; a whirl;
twirling entanglement of
the many becoming One.
My heart stretches to reach what once was beyond
Now effortlessly attainable.

by Sandra Dolan
"While sitting in my art studio I asked the angels to inspire me
to channel a special angel, something that would inspire people and
help them relate to angels, to my delight a beautiful angel
manifested from my hand onto the canvas holding the mother Earth,
"Earth Angel", I felt the love radiate from the angel to the earth
into the picture, I could feel the presence which flows through all
things, time, space, plants, grass, the earth, creation in that very
moment. What a gift to feel the love that is there for our planet
from the earth angel and God's creations. The light of god is
subtle, sometimes we just feel that light touch our heart for just
an instant, but in that instant the seed of light is planted in each
soul, I am that I am, of all living things, filling the hearts of
people with that light to shine out to humanity. The angels tell me
that we are a reflection of that love; the same as the essence of
that angel who reflects God's unconditional love and as we open our
hearts to that love, it also goes out to our mother, the earth, to
help her heal and express her beauty through the ocean, the sky, the
trees, the mountains, it is all there for us to remind us who the
greatest artist really is."
Sandra Dolan is a visionary artist who studied with the masters
of light to create her sacred paintings. Her work captures the
unique essence of spirit in her angels and soul paintings and
reflects ancient symbols, mandalas, color vibration and the language
of light, the inner essence, helping you to see your spiritual self.
