We try to meditate together at 9PM Pacific Time on Thursday nights for 15 minutes, but you can use the meditation at any time. This meditation will conclude this sequence. We hope to begin again in mid-2015.

Theme for December 1--December 31, 2014
: Finding What is Permanent Within Us

Last month, we attempted to look to the very small to find those exquisite instances of beauty that so often go unnoticed. The purpose of that mediation was to prepare for this one, which will be the final one in the meditation group. If it is resumed, you will be informed by email, as long as you have left your email address with the group.

We live in a state of constant movement, and, in this electronically driven and instantaneous world, most of us are lost to such practices as meditation, as our various devices lock us ever more tightly into the vast mechanical illusion that we have built to distract ourselves from our birth-aim, which for every human being is to find the holy ground upon which he will stand at the moment the body releases the soul.

How can we come to taste of what is permanent about ourselves, our essence, in a world grown so noisy as to drown out the voice of the soul and, in all to many cases, forever end our chance to be embraced in eternal being?

There is no simple answer, no easy practice. We must find a way within ourselves to step back from the gaudy hurly-burly of life, to see, if only for a moment, the true strangeness and inhumanity of our world.

Get into a meditative state, let your breath flow, let your mind be silent, concentrate your attention on your physical body. Ask yourself: grant me the silence I need. Do this again and again, day after day, year after year. Do not stop. You will find what you need. Nothing is lost.

This is a consumer society and we are all hypnotized into wanting an experience. If you concentrate on physical sensation, you automatically bypass this energy leak. Looking for experiences during meditation is a waste of time. To engage in real search, we have to leave the consumer behind. But certainly, it would be tragic to throw away one's own search because of a dislike of what others are doing. To really engage, it is important to give up things like judgement, which is also a great waste of one's energy.

My mind could not relax during the meditation last night. It just seemed to be going over every single event during my day. HOWEVER, and this is a pretty scary thought, I woke up with the word PANDEMIC in my waking mind. Do not know if it was part of a dream that I cannot remember or hopefully, something I might have read or saw yesterday???

Apologies for the dishevelled post, but it seems I want to report. Although I wasn't even doing the meditation - had to feed the horses&rush to work, but while driving, these insights kept popping: You'all know the Stanford Prison experiment? Where persons assigned to positions of power tend to abuse those assigned the position of powerlessness. How this drama keeps unfolding in real life. Those getting into positions of power showing in their actions who they really are. And what amazing opportunity it is to interact with horses. They are the creatures who dangle the opportunity to grab power in front of our faces. Take to force/violence, bring forth the baseness. Or learn to step back and consider how can we do this together? A masterclass in the process of making insides visible. To learn and transform. And how this pattern of forcing people experience disempowerment in all possible ways - software design for example - is an interesting way to rub our faces into the pattern of victimhood. How the very existence of psycopaths has led many to embrace empowerment - seeing how one has facilitated one's own disempowerment is an almost spiritual awakening - owning what it is I am involved in.

First I need to say that I am not Mormon, so, it makes this meditation seem odd. I have just looked up some things on the web and have included the websites since I have little background in the MORMON FAITH.

Tonight’s meditation started with this thought running through my mind…..

Are you ready for change? (Not just me on a personal level, but the world in general).

A man appears in my line of vision. He is holding an old/ancient gnarled wood, (T) shaped wine spigot.

I do not know how I know this but I identify him as the Angel Moroni. I do not actually see the GOLDEN TABLETS but he is impressing the idea of the reality of them into my thoughts.

Perhaps I am now injecting part of my own understanding of the world around me, but, I am thinking of the similarity of this Angel Moroni to the Tarot Card of Temperance.

One last thing. At the very end of this meditation, he hands me a silver ball that is larger then a softball. It is vibrating, the whole physical body hums with it.

Lovely meditation firstly a healing took place in a huge crystal,which was pyramid shaped ,and my friend was inside .There were beings of light around it and huge golden rays were making a pattern over him.I had the distinct,feeling that there are beings or E.T.s who at one point did not think we were worth saving but have seen the massive change in consciousness that has occurred in the human race and is willing to help us.Keep your fingers crossed!!!!!!!!!! much love and happiness to all.

As usual, I began this meditation early and it was silent/still until the last few minutes. I was hoping for more in the way of a dream during the night to clarify but it did not come, so, I am posting this from last night’s meditation.

I was about to come out of the group meditation when there is an image of a large opening in the earth. Above this hole there are men with shovels; they have created or expanded this opening to accommodate a living heart resting inside. (Deep inside the earth). Something is wrong, the heart is enlarged, the rhythm/beat is off, it is sick and suffering. I can actually see the heart struggling inside this large opening.

After this meditation I was hoping the image could be changed to an increasing love for the planet. However, it is not how the meditation felt. More like something is about to erupt.

I was hoping for a more positive outcome from a dream.

Isaw myself again pulsing out energy and then I was watching a scene by a river where men were repairing canoes and woman were doing their washing and there was much laughter ,and insults were going back and forth.They were Indians and the river was surrounded by pine and many other types of trees and it was a lifetime I had enjoyed immensely.I could see huge beings of light watching also and the Indians were quite aware of them,there was such peace there .I had the feeling they grew hemp and wove it into material and that I would do something like that.Then a great being suddenly appeared and told me to start reading my herbal books again because I would need to know what to grow and would live a similar life again,and would need to teach my grandaughter.(who, incidently,has not arrived yet!.)It has left me with a feeling of great hope for the future of the planet.

I am aware of three obelisks in this location, they are set in a very sandy/desert like environment; they are leaning against one another whether by age or design, I do not know. The black obelisk has a glossy sheen while the other two are clear, like smooth glass or crystal.

I sent out prayers for the areas on earth that needed rain and for those that needed the rain to stop and I could see myself as you described with pulsing waves radiating out from my body and they were going out so far and I felt so powerful,my heart area was expanding and my arms were outstretched and my hands were full of a powerful energy also and felt as if they werent there.Wow it was wonderful and I was told the energy was not only being used for what I asked but was my protection also.

Sitting uprightin a chair, I began at 11:45pm EST Came out at 12:45... 1 hour of bliss & POV from above.

In this meditation, I had thoughts and the feeling of a Queen Bee; I could feel her close to me in this meditation…..Here are the thoughts that came to mind.

She helps maintain a delicate and well organized environment/colony.

She is single minded as are all the bees, knowing their functions/responsibilities as worker bees and drones.

Then, inside my head, I hear a kind of buzzing and realize this must be the unique sound/music or vibration of a particular hive. (Our own planet must be unique in this way too).

Healthy honey comes from a healthy hive.

So, is this meditation about the health of our own Mother Earth and her delicate balance?

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters

A very special cell that hangs vertically downwards is used to produce new queens. A colony producing queen type cells warns the beekeeper of an impending swarm.

A male drone bee has no father but does have a grandfather!
A healthy queen bee is continually emitting pheromones (a bee perfume) that only the bees in the hive can smell.

These pheromone odors tell the bees in the colony that the queen is still with them and all is well in the hive. This chemical pheromone communication is quite sophisticated and the ‘personality’ of a beehive will change if the beekeeper changes an old queen for a young one. Just as the personality of the beekeeper might change if he swaps his old wife for a young one. In this way a beekeeper has some control over the temper and enthusiasm of a colony.

Very peaceful I saw my energy connected to others we dont have to like them as long as we can love them.Once again I saw myself meditating without emotion .During the day I am very aware of my thoughts and am amazed at how the negative ones slip in and have realized that as a child and even a teenager I never had such thoughts.I am very much aware of how important it is to live in the now and forget all the negatives things that happened in the past they no longer serve me.I am grateful for the things I DO have.Lovely to hear Anne back again love to you both.

Ended up flying around a bit as my "observer". I wonder if it should have a name? As I was returning, I gave a hug to the "me" on the sofa, she seemed such a cute and endearing creature. Outside the meditation, keeping the observer perspective with me has brought a deep sense of peace. Just checking with it enables me to take a breath and take in the moment, and stop with the pushiness I tend to have, always going for the next moment. It will come of it's own accord, I know, but seem to keep forgetting.

I find myself looking down on myself in some meditations and during the week I actually observed myself as if I wasnt me and meeting other beings who were discussing my progress it was very strange and very real.I felt not emotion about the person who was me sitting on the couch.This morning it was a lovely meditation shorter than usual as I go over the 15 minutes. I felt as if I was holding a ball of gold light at my heart centre and clearing out old unwanted memories there was so much energy in my left hand and in both thumbs ,very strong.

Very powerful despite the fact that my alarm kept going off.My phone is new and I havent worked it out yet!I was told never to judge a rich man as I didnt know how he used his money or how he used his heart,and we can all be the same,have the same abundance, we have the ability to change and become whoever we want to be,nothing is written in stone.The most important thing is love.In fact never judge anybody as we have all chosen our journey and the people in it and knew before we came what we were in for. I saw many different textures a lot of white very like plaster but I dont think it was and many shapes of gold light that were not clear and when I asked why was told that as my pineal opened more I would see the clearer picture.I felt surrounded by such love.

I got a late start to this meditation tonight, but as usual, feel it is important to post what comes to mind.

I had a strong impression of Harry Houdini.....

THEN, the impression of Falstaff.....

This time more like a normal meditation, no visions. A mild, but very clear joy lingered.

But the text for the meditation contains such sublime insight I collapsed in tears reading it. The filtering function of brain - an insight that forever changes how I look at it. Yesterday evening after reading the text I could see that there is some dimension in me that is scared of the world (of vastness) beyond brain. Shrinking in fear. Trying to comfort that part - vital because, as the text says - the soul is the whole system. The whole system has to permit the filter to relax (one dream some time ago expressed that this journey is only available for volunteers - any residual resistance will be barring the way). So far, in my experience, the most expansive and explosive states of joy come in dancing (no steps, free dance, these states come after about 3 days into a workshop). Seems my brain gets flooded enough by music that the wider being can emerge to consciousness. But pretty much every time I get to a new level of higher joy it is accompanied by a new peek into some abyss of dread or despair. To be faced and integrated. The most recent ones have related to existential levels I have had virtually no conscious contact with. And still, after working through it, I have been able to see how it has manifested in my life. My current theory is that joy expands the boundaries of consciousness, and with that expansion also that part comes into view that (maybe?) caused the shrinkage. The part so dreadful it was doomed to be cut out. The stains?

So, is the dread about the process that invites life back to a wider being, including the stained parts? Or is it the dread of losing the child-like status - the illusion of being separate, individual? The tought of being free in the scope of what brain can fathom is comforting compared to the idea of free-jumping into unfathomable infinity of vastness.

Is the text for the previous meditation still available somewhere? Even that contained insight that turned my perception into a new postition. I'd like to review it. And thank you for these meditations, I am immensely grateful.

I have stepped into a majestic place of color.

Lemon yellows, lime greens, sparkling orange, strawberry reds, blue and violet neon colors.

The colors are tiny sparks, filling the air with snapping and popping sounds. Invisible hands massage the colors into my face and arms; I can taste them with my tongue and feel the texture of each color on my skin. It is beautiful and peaceful here; a place of healing and rejuvenation. The sun is an extremely bright gold, shining down and intensifying the colors.

I did not know I had access to this place. When the body and mind are weary, this is where I can come in my thoughts/imagination to re-energize.

I see an older man in my line of vision. He has thinning white hair (bald on top) and is wearing a white lab coat. Very familiar, but where have I seen him before? I wait until another image appears; a flying car zips past him and I remember, he is Dr. Emmett brown from the movie ‘BACK TO THE FUTURE.’

Now, as I type out this meditation, this image seems to imply that time travel can go into the past as well as the future.

NOW A SHIFT……I am seeing a spiral staircase. This too is familiar…..Yes, it is in the Loretto Chapel and I was there many years ago.

33 steps spiraled upward through two 360 degree revolutions.

Thought the opinion of snopes should be included here as well.

Finally figured out the corect time here for the meditation (7 in the morning the next day). Had tried the meditation before, but somehow it did not work. This is on the 27th: First sent attention to body - that did not feel right. So I tried the empty mind - this I do not usually do. And I am climbing in a very difficult terrain, giant rock formations of very dark rock. And I am watching from above, and know/realise how immensely important it is to be connected to something above, simply because otherwise one could not know which way to go. And then, I become aware of the surroundings. The rock formation floats in an infinity of white light. Very bright, comforting, forgiving white light. I do not feel that I am struggling so much in my life, but this vision seems to suggest that I am taking this maybe a bit too seriously. It is all floating in white light anyways.

Extremely useful and inspiring meditation for me. Couldn't make it yesterday, but look forward to the next ones. This is very important, please keep it going - I registered just to be able to say this.

I laid down on the still warm fireplace hearth.. I could hear the coals crackling still...then I heard my cat fussing with something and his bell became more & more distant...

Now I am above my body at a bird's eye view, I can now not take 'forever' with telling my body parts to feel/sleep..the intent just the past I would put the cat out of the room as he was so distracting. Also he always 'acts up' when I begin to meditate (weird).. The Monkey Chatter is less & less.

A great Med , I am bound for Gateway@ TMI in 1 week.. I owe it all to Whitley and the community he created from Wm Henry to Marla Frees to JIm Marrs to Linda Howe to Anne Strebier and all 'seeker' friends I'v met at Dreamland fests ...all community..all family..
Happy New Year all...keep it going...

.....We look at ourselves from above, imagining, in meditation, that we are rising above our bodies and our lives, and looking down at that part of ourselves that is unfolding in time.....

So, I settle in around 10:30 and close my eyes for the group meditation.

The first thought is RUN, RUN fast as you can. (The Gingerbread Man)?

Then, there is a shift and I am suspended in space; looking down on our planet.

I am not alone here, standing next to me is an extremely old woman. Her face seemingly a composite of many earth like/type entities. See does not look at me but I am sure she is aware of my presence. She is serene but displays no sign of joy or sorrow. The only other part of her body that I can see is her hands. Her fingers are extremely long…..Another fable comes to mind. (Hansel and Gretel).

How do I know this old woman? She feels familiar? The next thought is, “we are all transient beings.”

I met the child who was me as a little girl it was quite lovely she was full of joy and I asked for the things to leave that were irrelevant to my life now but to keep all her love and joyfulness.Then I was told the things I could do were limitless.Another powerful meditation it is good to be back.Happy new year .

I'm at a bit of a loss. Although I don't mind it much. Do i philosophize as I sit in meditation? Do I wonder in thought as I still myself in quiet? I remember what I read in the meditation, play the words over, come back to the feeling of the feet, the hands, etc - I keep doing this throughout - then back to thinking on what I'd read. Is this whatsit? I suppose I should just relax about it, its not about trying is it? Its about being. But it is exciting. I mean just look at this meditation. Its adventure, man, ADVENTURE. Oh people, people, don't miss out on this, its like a gift.

( Even so, I missed the last meditation on boxing day. I'm a bit angry at that. How could I have forgotten??)

I am chained and weighed down by own anger and revenge. It is great to the point where I feel a sensation of numbing pain. I feel the weight of it every time I go into meditation. However, it is not always the case.

These are bits of things that came floating through my mind tonight.

Rather ask, ‘what is this planet?’

The place of fine tuning and a finishing school.

Come forth with speech, use it wisely.


For this meditation, the focus on my sensation on my body included self observation. I didn't really know where the search began so I chose to search my surroundings, an inner and outer search. Toward the end of the meditation, I became aware of what could be described as an energy or presence. It appeared before me and I accepted it. It entered me and the meditation ended.

Whitley, I ask for a little help with this meditation. In my imagination I see a ghostly figure standing to my right. (Support). Sometimes when I do this, it helps me get into my truth.

I am here (humanity) for the betterment or understanding of the process called evolution on this planet. Free will has been granted to me (us) and as you evolve so does the cosmos. This current life is part and parcel of the soul's journey, embrace it. You have chosen it. Your soul self knows no boundaries.

For perfect love casteth out fear, and fear can only be from the material things that soon must fade away. And thus hold to the higher thought of eternity. For life is a continual experience. Edgar Cayce.....Reading 1175-1

The morning star crossed my mind earlier tonight.

Courage. The word courage came to me. It takes courage to be able to see oneself objectively, to see the right and wrong, the good and the evil. Throughout the meditation I felt a great amount of love, a love that knows no bounds.

During the last few minutes of this meditation the one word 'MANNA' came into my thoughts. I have done some searching but did not see anything that most people have not already read about in the bible. Here is something on the HIDDEN MANNA. (Perhaps the first real SOUL food).

What else do we know about it? "It was like white coriander seed, and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey." (Exodus 16:31) We also know from Psalm 78:24 that it was the heavenly food of angels. "And given them the bread of heaven. Men ate angels' food." Additionally God wanted some of it saved and preserved for future generations to remind them of the Lord's covenant of faithfulness. Moses placed a portion of manna in the Ark of the Covenant.

Now comes a real mystery in the Old Testament. Somewhere between the time Moses first placed it in the Ark and the dedication of the Solomon's Temple, the manna disappeared along with Aaron's rod. At the dedication ceremony; "nothing was in the ark except the two tablets of stone which Moses put there at Horeb, when the Lord made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt." (1 Kings 8:9)
