THE PRINCIPAL OF MENTALISM
“THE ALL is MIND; The Universe is Mental.” The Kybalion
The substance of reality underlying all manifestation. All is Spirit and unknowable and undeniable. We exist in the Universal Consciousness of the Mind of God. The Mental Nature of the Universe is the key to creation.
THE PRINCIPAL OF CORRESPONDENCE
“As above, so below, as below, so above.” The Kybalion
There is always correspondence or pattern in Nature. If you apply what you know of the natural order on one level to another level, you will gain insight.
THE PRINCIPAL OF VIBRATION
“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.” The Kybalion
There are those substances vibrating so fast they seem motionless, and those that are vibrating so slow that they seem at rest. Scientists have even proved electrons are vibrating.
THE PRINCIPAL OF POLARITY
“Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.” The Kybalion
Through contrast and comparison we know any condition which exists. All is relative to itself.
THE PRINCIPAL OF RHYTHM
“Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.” The Kybalion
The art of transmutation is accomplished by utilizing the Principle of Polarity. Vibration has a repetitive pattern that can be learned.
THE PRINCIPAL OF CAUSE AND EFFECT
“Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law.” The Kybalion
The awareness allows us to rise above the circumstances and see the total picture without having to play the games.
THE PRINCIPAL OF GENDER
“Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine principles: Gender manifests on all planes.” The Kybalion
In electricity there is the male and female, positive, negative and the ground which allow the flow of electricity.
Not only locations can be haunted, but also people and items. A ghost is an individual who has had a sudden or traumatic death and does not realize that he is no longer alive, thus, he will continue to go through his daily routine as if nothing has happened. Often I’ll see apparitions in the backseat of a vehicle, and later I learn that this was the car used to transport an elderly parent which has since passed away. Let’s face it; we’ve all thought we’ve seen someone sitting in the back seat only to chide ourselves for having such an active imagination. But, if it’s an older car, there is the possibility grandma is still along for the ride.
In 2015 my older sister and I took a small retreat to St Augustine, Florida and stayed in a charming little B&B called the Kenwood Inn. As we entered the room my sister rushed off to the bathroom and I stood there wondering what I should do next as we had not established our sisterly territory. In front of me was a lovely little mirrored dresser on which stood cut crystal glasses and an ice bucket. I decided to pour myself some water, and as I picked up a tumbler a soft female voice clearly stated, “My ring is in the drawer.”
Obviously I was alone, but instinctively I looked around and when I turned back, a grayed reflection of a petite young woman looked out of the mirror at me. “My ring is in the drawer.” she repeated pointing to the left side of the dresser.
I nodded and gently pulled open the small box like drawer which was mounted on the dresser to find that it was empty. Sadly she shook her head, her dark curls swinging around her face. “The other drawer,” she urged. I started to reach for the twin box mounted on the other side of the dresser. Shaking her head, she pointed once again to the drawer I had just opened.
Confused, I pulled out the drawer and turned it over, however, she continued to direct my attention to the little box. Returning to the dresser I probed inside and discovered that there seemed to be a slender drawer above the one I had just removed. A warm smile brightened her face and I realized that she was eager for me to open the hidden drawer.
A small tray, lined with sage green velvet slid out from on-top of the primary drawer. It smelled of roses and cedar. To my amazement, clearly marked on the antique fabric was the perfect round imprint of a small ring. Smiling, the apparition lifted her hand to admire her ring and faded away.
After I told my sister, she insisted that we talk with the landlady. The owner of the Inn was surprised as she had no idea that the dresser contained a hidden drawer. She had purchased the furniture a number of years earlier in an antique store somewhere along the Atlantic Coast and was unsure of exactly where it had come from.
As in many hauntings, if the ghost was attached to an object and touched it regularly regardless of whether the object is relocated, the ghost will continue to interact with it as if nothing had changed. Therefore it is always important when investigating a location to determine if there are any coincidences of an apparition appearing immediately after the purchase of an older object. Clearing the residence does not automatically clear all of the objects inside. However, if you succeed at clearing a ghost from an object, it is highly likely you have cleared it from any other location or object it has been haunting.
Well this is really different for me. As you know, I don’t tell people; I just answer question and give guidance. Have you ever felt as if you are waiting for something? Perhaps you sense that there will be a pivotal moment in history that you may either witness or be a part of? If so this call maybe your invitation to “wake-up”. I recently received an incredible message in which I was instructed to reach out to certain people with a spiritual teaching. I was told what to say. It began in November of 2014 as a series of recorded channeled messages. To date, I have received and recorded four spiritual communications. The information is basically: Wake up! Now is the time! You know what to do, so do it! Of course there is more specific information and actual instructions on “how-to” begin. If you feel this message is for you, please join us in a gathering on Saturday, January 17 at 10:00 to learn more and receive the first four messages. If this message is not for you it may be for someone that you know, so please pass it on. Saturday, January 2015 – 10:00 AM Edgewood, WA. To register and receive location address, please click here.
I had an incredible message this October 2014. I was instructed to reach out to certain people with a spiritual teaching. I was told what to say and who to contact.
If you feel this message is for you, please do the following:
Listen to the message and take notes of what “jumps out” at you.
Begin the practice and spend time silently allowing the questions to be answered from within yourself.
Tell anyone you feel needs to hear it.
In the 1980’s & 1990’s I traveled to Canada to participate in Norma Cowie’s Psychic Fairs. One morning in Victoria, Canada, I overheard a conversation while I was eating breakfast in the hotel dining room. Two young females were talking about taking their young to “introduce them to the baby whales.” Fascinated, I looked around to see no one who could be speaking. Curious I continued to listen and was confused and astounded to discover I was hearing the thoughts of dragons.
“She hears us!” was the excited response of a large gold and green female as I asked who was talking. This was the beginning of my love affair with Dragons.
I was informed that there is a “Pride of Dragons” (as they say) which lives in the caves under Victoria, BC. They take great care in socializing their young so that there is no unnecessary human contact. They are cautious of humans as they feel we do not understand them and will kill them out of fear and curiosity. Dah! Who would have thought?
That same evening the local news was totally focused on a pod of whales that had just appeared near Vancouver Island. There appeared to be several newborns. As the camera man panned the sea, overhead the clouds took on the shapes of Dragon heads and bodies. I was totally awed; yet, the newscaster didn’t seem to notice. On the other hand, everyone viewing the television with me could see the silhouettes of Dragons in the skies above the whales.
Dragons inhabit a parallel dimension and can be seen in our reality through reflection. The best way I know to describe this phenomenon is that we can view them much like we see something outside our home reflected in a mirror within our home.
From that day forward I often see the reflections of Dragons in the sky. Once in a while there is someone with me and they are able to see them as well. I think that they are just so massive and people seldom look up is the main reason there are no reports about them. Also, they appear to be made of clouds, and therefore appear camouflaged as they blend in. Watch for the ridge backs, the cranial head formations and the large, lifelike eyes. We all see shapes in the clouds, so an occasional Dragon would not be news worthy.
Normally I hear the soft musical voices and begin to search the skies. Once I acknowledge them, they will follow us for miles. They are curious of why we can see and communicate with them. I often wonder if this is what it feels like to be a fish in a bowl being watched and admired by larger beings.
They tell me there are caves between Jerome and Phoenix where they reside. I was tempted to look, but with Time warping and rattle snakes, I’ll just trust what they say as I continue to watch the skies.
During our stay in Phoenix, Linda and I both began to see the Dragons. Here are a few photos shot from the car. Linda is a superb camera woman so I am looking forward to downloading and sharing her photos of the Dragons.
I apologize for taking so much time between posts. Time flies when enjoying life. Driving daily marathons lends little time for writing.
Time has been altered since our night in Mt Shasta. Even though we are cruising down the highways at the speed limit, time warps and slips away. Everywhere we go – time extends itself – delaying the arrival. Then it snaps back, leaving us short, and rescheduling our itinerary.
It is as if spirit mocks me, drawing us towards a different time – Spirit Time. Years ago, when I spent most of my days with the People, my Native American family would wait – quiet – unconcerned – until Spirit moved them. Then everything was on Spirit Time. So it appears that since Mt Shasta we are now on Spirit Time, and what’s more, Spirit’s agenda.
Navigale is our android GPS. She brings us directly to each location, only . . . too often, I transpose or fat finger the address sending us searching at the wrong destination. Time slips again.
Sadly, our crazy timeline didn’t allow us to stop at Palm Beach. Sniff! Sniff! I was looking forward to seeing Cleo. However, she will be up in Seattle later in the year for a B.E.S.T. training (check on my website for more information on B.E.S.T.). I will count on seeing you then, Cleo.
Our first stop was to see Marilyn Weeks, the author of a delightful little children’s book, The Lion and the Rose. I’m delighted to say I now have my very own signed copy and am looking forward to reading it to my nephew, Kyle, when he comes for Thanksgiving this year.
Check out her amazing book!
Our first night was at the KOA campground in Mt Shasta, California in a delightful cabin nestled among ponderous old trees. Feeling like two giddy school girls we set up our bunks and covered the windows to block the light, then settled in for a night of serenity.
Immediately, Linda was on the alert because her bed was vibrating. After much investigation we determined she was laying in a vortex. We attempted to sleep, but found ourselves in fight or flight anxiety and neither of us could fully relax.
The room would seem exceptionally frigid and then we would suddenly become overwhelmed by a tingling, itchy hot sensation. Linda was the first to observe a grey grid that seemed to have settle over the entire room.
As I lay in the bunk, I noticed sparks of light and moving dull black shadows and I realized that the vortex had shifted into the doorway. Shortly after I became ice cold and my bunk began to vibrate while Linda’s bunk was now still. Dry mouthed and feeling panicked we both observed this phenomena , yet we felt safe even though our bodies were overloaded with adrenaline.
I realized that the vortex rotated much like a spinning top, moving around the room. This was a new experience for me and I studied it attempting to understand what was happening.
Laying wide eyed in our bunks we both experienced the intermittent vibrating, flashing lights, shadowy forms moving about the room and a sense of hyper vigilance.
After 2:10am we finally drifted off to sleep. I awake to Linda thrashing and half mouthing, half screaming my name. I abruptly sat up to find the room was infested in black shapes. Lindy was gasping and struggling to wake up. I called to her and she was able to free herself. She had felt trapped, as if something was pushing her down. We could not fully understand what we were experiencing.
We are both seasoned paranormal investigators and neither of us felt we were dealing with a Ghost, although, through out the night we both had flashes of an old man in a stone and wood cabin.
Also during the night we experienced being touched. While cocooned in her sleeping bag, Lindy felt something touch her shoulder and later the calf of her leg. Once after I had gotten up, I returned to my bunk and was horrified as a cold, damp mouth rubbed across my face. As it had moved away from the bed, I sat huddled mustering my courage, not wishing to terrify Linda or myself.
Until well after 6:30am we laid awake speaking comfort to each other in the dark, as we studied the vortex, the shadows and the grey grid and our bodies reaction to the phenomena. Lindy described the forms she saw to me as we lay on opposite sides of the dark cabin. One form that she saw was like monks in black robes floating across the room, she named these Shadow people. Another, group of ash colored beings she described as Lava people. They were thick bodied like Sumo wrestlers and shaped as if they had several rolls of fat around their midsections. She felt as if they were unfriendly. I saw dark silhouettes of elongated bodies with round heads and long lean forms. Several times I saw large dark oily masses that floated around the room. Two things that are important to note; neither of us had taken anything that would have altered our perceptions, no alcohol nor medications; we had taken special care to block all external light and there was not illumination within the pitch dark room.
Over all it was not a night of serenity.

There’s a saying, “If you do what you’ve always done, you get what you’ve always got.” or there’s a shorter version, “If nothing changes, nothing changes.” As much as I dislike trite sayings, they always seem to sum things up succinctly. Though, we usually don’t understand exactly what they mean until we have integrated the experience from which the quotable quote comes.
Journaling is one of the most powerful & immediate methods for making personal behavior changes. Journaling allows us to go back and review our reactions when we are less emotional. Through journaling we can see our patterns and take constructive steps to “change” those behaviors.
When we are triggered emotionally, we do not think, we merely re-act. Our reasoning mind hit’s the “pause” button and we default to a survival state. Here our actions are controlled by our subconscious mind which selects from memory a method in which to cope with our emotional reaction. These behaviors are often either fight or flight. We can withdraw, no longer choosing to interact or we may engage, becoming aggressive in an attempt to back the other individual down. Either way, we later find our self unsatisfied with the situation and how we handled it.
Our subconscious mind responds from what it has been previously trained to do. Thus, it is important to realize that for every action there is an instant and equal reaction.
“If nothing changes, nothing changes, ‘therefore, should we decide to react differently to this situation, we must place new memories in the subconscious mind, creating a more diversified selection. This must be done prior to a reaction, as the subconscious mind will not “think about it” rather it will instantly select a behavior from memory.
This can be easily done, as the subconscious mind is not logical it does not discriminate between real and imagined situations. Think about when you are in a movie theater and you know that everything you are watching is on a screen and therefore, of no direct physical harm to you. Never the less, when the alien monster leaps towards the camera, we all have a tendency to startle and pull away. Even though the conscious mind knows it is false, the subconscious mind responds as if it is real. Thus, we can use the imagined to place new memories within our own subconscious.
Journaling for Transcending Reactive Behaviors
RESPONSE = responsibility
(The ability to respond)
Framing: In the margins, create a frame around the page by writing the subject matter, i.e.: argument, feelings of inadequacy, frustration, parents, etc.
Bottom Line: Leave approximately two inches open at the bottom of each page. This is to allow you to return at a later date and make personal comments or sum up the situation.
Using framing and the bottom line break-up the text and take the psyche to a more creative space where you will find yourself better able to see things from a new perspective. You do not need to frame every page but I recommend your use these techniques when you are being too logical.
Centering is the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual act of coming to an inner balance. It is accomplished by finding the personal comfort zone that allows you to feel powerful and in charge of all levels of yourself. One of the most necessary qualities required to develop spiritually and psychically, is clear intent. In order to accomplish this, the body, mind and spirit must contribute to the sense of inner focus. Centering is a powerful tool in the journey to Self-Mastery.
EXERCISE: Centering in the Mind
Follow the first four steps from above. (See EXERCISE: Centering in the Mind)
Make this exercise as physical as possible. Use exaggeration and visualization to intensify your experience. You are re-training your body to relax at will through a simple exercise of contrast and comparison.
With each release, remember to let the energy flow down through your thighs, your knees, your calves, your ankles and then out through the soles of your feet.
The contrast of your muscles being taut and then relaxed will facilitate your body to release on a deeper level.
As you move the energy, thoughts and feelings may rise to the surface; just observe them as they flow out with the energy. Stored within all muscles is a memory of pain and other feelings. Theses emotions became trapped when we were tense and worried.
The most valuable way to relax is to verbally command yourself to release. Stress is caused by the inability to let go. Most individuals respond effectively to verbal suggestions. Give yourself a self-releasing suggestion; “Let go!” “Relax!”
Soften your shoulders and allow your mind to quiet.
After you have worked with the above techniques for a period of time you will be able to accelerate the process and achieve the same results. Simply tense your entire bodies, hold, intensify, and then release. Allow the energy to flow over and through you as you command yourself to, “Let go, relax!”
