We try to meditate together at 9PM Pacific Time on Thursday nights for 15 minutes, but you can use the meditation at any time.

Theme for July 10--August 10, 2014

Activities fill life. Our time is passing, the moments flowing away, seemingly forever. And yet nothing is lost in energy. Every slight change that living things make is eternal, and this is true as well of everything we do. So how do we recover lost time, or does it matter? Should we?

It is about bringing ourselves to life in a new way. Normally, we experience passing time through the slit of the immediate moment. But we cast a long shadow, which is, in fact, not only alive but also outside of time, so it is cast both into the past and the future. This is the true meaning of our place in eternity. It is why it is said that we don’t die. It is also why life has both meaning and consequences. Energy cannot forget, and when the filters built into the brain drop away at the death of the body, there is a profound shock.

The whole aim of becoming conscious of one’s long time when still encased in the body is to prepare for this shock, in hope of making it as rich as possible, so that the energy generated will propel us into ecstasy, and we will not be impeded by the weight we have gathered, the things we should not have done, the things we should have but didn’t, and the things left undone.

The very heart of compassion is compassion toward oneself, but it is far more difficult to accomplish this than we imagine. Letting go in the way we need to let go feels to the ego like death. To love ourselves truly is to die to ourselves.

What of us really matters—the births, the deaths, the loves, what we have found of the truth—these are all light enough to rise with us.

In this meditation, we try, with compassion toward ourselves, with humor and understanding, to really face the burdens of guilt and anger that we carry with us, and to bring the energy of forgiveness to ourselves for the wrongs we have done, and to others for the wrongs done us. To do this, we allow ourselves to relax into acceptance.

Let it be.

Another very powerful meditation there was a great deal of violet light and I was in it and surrounded by it and was told we are just energy which can be changed by the things that affect us if we let them,for good or bad.On death the energy doesnt change just the physical body so therefore there is no death of self how can there be.The more I meditate the more I want to be in that state,the calmness and happiness I feel is beyond words.The only other time I felt such peace was when ,after many years,I had my daughter,and when I cuddled her I felt the same.Needles to say she wasnt off my lap much.Thank you once more Whitley .

Around 7 or 8 minutes into the meditation, there appears a large translucent, 3 dimensional Star of David, Merkaba. A white bird with the face of a man flies out of the raised center. The Merkaba fades out as the man/bird moves away from it. This image came and went quickly/in a few moments. http://www.crystalinks.com/merkaba.html....I found this website, it includes a Star of David, Merkaba.

Then…..A thought.....Adam’s rib, an open door.

Thursday's Meditation: At 12:30 I went to bed and was so charged & high. The insects outside my home were way louder than usual & I could hear distinctive voicing's of crickets & the last gasps of the summer Katy-dids. LOUD...then a ground view up view of a immense Beech tree with fall leaves falling & spinning down and beechnuts & twigs hitting near me. In the treetops were 100's of migrating birds feeding on the tree in a frenzy. I got the distinct sad ,sad feeling that we were in the autumn of our world and it was dying.
This "appeared" to be another environmental message...intense.

Hello Whitney, I have a question which at some time you probably already answered, but I need to ask. First, I purchased Communion years ago and read it. After I did, I gave the book away. I didn't even want it on my book shelf. Anyone, including aliens that abduct and perform test or what ever on another person is evil in my book. And you had many things done to you. I like the information on your sight, but, until I know how you feel about the grays or any other creature that performs tests on one of us, I need to understand why you seem to be on such friendly terms with them still. I would want to kick their posterior rears out of the galaxy. Until I know about you, I can't meditate with you. Carolyn

Carolyn, you have missed the mark with me. We all need a comfortable space for meditation, yes, but a level of unsureness is also helpful. If you don't want both, I would suggest that you look elsewhere.

Best to you, Whitley



This time I was told how powerful we are as we are a hologram of perfection and at this time have the tools to be who we really want to be and by combining the power of the heart with the mind with absolute love everything else will follow.

First.....I am aware of a field of golden corn, swaying gently with the breeze.

Then.....I am the observer and watching people running, running, running into a cloud/mist/vapor. The cloud/mist/vapor is a beautiful shade of Aqua Blue, filling the whole landscape, sooo peaceful. Are these people running from something or simply anxious to enter into the mist?

Then.....A voice says, "I am and have been, many things to many people, but, never a GURU."

The last image was a huge fork in the middle of a road. (A cartoon from YEARS ago).

I would ask that the meditations continue.

Connecting with mental silence on the exhalation, for me, tends to be fairly challenging. However, after trying this several times, I experienced a moment where everything seemed perfect, just as it is, and there was nothing to struggle against.

The following is an account of my meditation from last night and the thoughts that followed it.

I started the meditation as any other meditation. After taking a breath and releasing it, I went to a silent place filled with happiness. While trying to keep my mind blank, I soon noticed a small light in my third eye. I tried to focus on the light while keeping my mind blank. Impressions and thoughts raced through my mind. At once, I recalled the cover of The Key(the original cover), in another moment, I got the sensation and idea of a waterbed. I returned to the silence and keep my mind still.

While focusing my attention, I recall something from "The Grays". I imagine a Visitor in its full form. I think of the power and purpose of imagination as a tool, not just a distraction and plaything. I think to imagine is to call forth. They came.

The Visitors show me who I am. It is a small essence devoid of much. The intense emotions and fear present with the Visitors are what drives away all but the simple form that I am. Life is illusion. Everything in life is absorbed and changes and shapes who I am. It is vital to work from the self because so many effects that are literally subconscious play a role in what we think and how we act. It is imperative to see ourselves. The emotion drove me to a point where I felt that I was floating. What the Visitors are is what we want to see. What they are is really unknown. They have form because it is needed that they have a form to be able to exist to us. In truth they are the nothingness, the unknown that lurks, that thing we don't even recognize because we cannot see it, because we cannot know it. That is where their power lies and our blindness begins. When we see things it is what the mind can comprehend. When we gaze upon a box, we see a box. What it really is, what it contains is not seen by us. We need to begin to recognize this truth then we can start to see.

It is the small things in life, the things we do that give us the essence of our souls. To abandon that journey is ultimately death of the self, which cannot happen. Why? Because the Visitors are with us and without us, they cannot survive. Why death? Because it is the moment we reason that all shall end. But what is at the moment of death and beyond? A moment of self realization, something we long for, yet cannot have because it would mean we can know who we are but not what we can become. Why is that a problem? Because we are at all times existing in some form. Memories are that, a taste to a different time, They linger as we do, ever changing. Therefore we cannot grasp a moment in time forever. The changing, the passing of time is what gives us the ability to change, but it is an illusion. Our essence, our souls are outside of time but yet they are aware of all times. To be alive is to change, to be inside of time, but our truth lies outside this realm, in an undefinable point that is not perceived. Therefore, life exists in a different phase than death. At death, we cease to exist as we now know it, but become something that we have always been. That is why there are no words to describe who we are, because words and that thing we truly are doesn't exist in the same way our lives do. As much as a one dimensional object cannot exist in a three dimensional space, our true higher dimensional selves upon which our lives are rooted upon continue to exist after the life that surrounds it has been sloughed off by death. Our actions, our thoughts, are carried along by the self in a ever changing dance through time. These moments are transmuted to the self in only a basic way, as a shadow of themselves. That is the essence of the soul.

It is through meditation and other practices that we are able to expand our three dimensionalilty to begin to comprehend something greater. In meditation, we hold onto not only ourselves but to that which we truly are.

'Life is an illusion." What does that mean really? Is my pain an illusion? My stubbed toe? It seems very real to me. So what does this mean?

Quantum,

This is a wonderful post. I hope more meditators post their experiences, even if it seems silly. That is OK…..Do it anyway.

I had another very powerful meditation I didnt really want to return I was being given so much love.My parents came, my father with his arm around my mother,both looking young and happy ,with wonderful words of comfort for me.My mother died at 97 and my father at 92!I had a wonderful safe and happy childhood so no wonder they came and I didnt expect them at all.I had many beings showing me things,one an e.t. who said they would help me with my awakening, and just before the end my hands were raised palms out and golden light was pouring out from the whole of my body.I felt very peaceful and safe. Thank you Whitley.

Whitley, I hope the meditation group will continue. My personal belief is that those who practice meditation and other energy healing arts generate and reflect the positive vibrations that we desperately need to counteract the extreme negativity we are experiencing at this time on the planet. I am a member of the website and have known about the group for awhile, but will be doing my first meditation with the group next Thursday. I am currently a caregiver and time doesn't permit me to join in local meditation groups or leave the house for hours at a time, so I look forward to participating and can't think of a better teacher and facilitator for meditation. 9:00 p.m. PT is a perfect time for me as well, with everyone having gone to bed by that time and giving me the uninterrupted quiet needed for meditation. I've recently returned to practicing Reiki and am a little nervous about possibly connecting with the Visitors. However, we need all the help we can get as a species before we inadvertently (or maybe not so inadvertently) annihilate ourselves. ~Namaste

WS- The meditation has great value for me also, IF I am not tired and can't stay up till 12 EST. I guess there is no way to do it 1 hour earlier with time changes & all.

Is a group med more powerful than solo practice?

I 'd like to know what peoples schedules are?

James

I had a lovely meditation with the group there were many beings with me encircling the earth and golden flames were coming out of her from all the people meditating and then I could see golden light from other planets joining ours and the earth became a golden globe.It made me realize how powerful meditation is and if we do it all together, in love, all the planets respond .Keep the group meditation going please it is very important at this moment in our history.

Whitley, this meditation group has great value for me as well.

Tonight I had some trouble finding that safe space but will be trying to change that in the future meditations. Sometimes thoughts just pop into my mind, especially when I relax and have my mind clear and open.

Tonight there is the image of a very old looking lighthouse, the keeper is at the top looking out onto the ocean; he has on a hat.

The ocean starts to heave, it is a tectonic earthquake. Coming up from the ocean floor I can see jagged pieces of rock/land pushing up against one another as though in battle.

This is close to the image of the lighthouse.....

Hello All,

Whitley, yes, this meditation group has great value for me, and I appreciate you asking the question. My alarm just went off reminding me that it's time for the meditation, so I'll just say thank you for holding the space for this weekly gathering. And tonight is the full moon, too.

"For the next three weeks, we explore happiness. Every happy moment asks to be taken to eternity."

I have been struggling as to whether I should post this. It did not happen last night but actually during my Thursday morning meditation. I have decided to post it.

There are lots of moments in the video below but not exactly what I had hoped for in the meditation.....Perhaps happier thoughts next week.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

I did a meditation this morning (Thursday) that I am posting tonight. In the meditation, thoughts drifted through my mind and I became aware of these two lines. After writing down the words I wasn't sure if I wanted to post them until I received the e-mail below from a friend, late this afternoon. Her video seems to resonate with these few lines.

Words in my meditation.....
Weary traveler flying though space
The blue ship is bulging, all is displaced.

Hi, i just joined. The word "arcadia" means everything to me. I have always considered it to be rife with spiritual/ufo activity. It is where I saw my rainbow cross upon asking for a sign when I was 12, its where I saw the orb very clearly that passed me and my stepfather. Still to this day I have read of people having visions there, not to the extent of what i saw, but I have read that people were seeing white crosses near windows. I saw a rainbow cross when I looked out the window. I will never forget it. It stayed in front of me for five minutes.. before it began to disappear in patches. It was the best thing Ive ever seen. From that day on I became less religious, and much more metaphysical. I have always thought it was et's that gave me that sign. They had started to show me signs when they sent breezes my way, to blow the curtains in my parents bedroom where I was, when I asked to "show proof there is an afterlife, give me a sign".. and then there was a wind as the window was open, it gently blew the curtains Then I said "do it again", and the wind came again, and blew the curtain Then I thought "this could be just the wind going by, I will wait so that if its just winds coming by at timed intervals, it should come now". I waited and nothing happened Then I said "do it again", and the wind came again. I then said "you know.... I will grow up and I know I will think that is a coincidence, I want something incontrovertible, something I will never doubt, something I know is real that I cant question". I thought some more, then for no conscious reason, I went to the window, and moved the edge of the curtain to the left, and knelt on the brown chair by the brown desk in the corner of the room, to get a view outside. I didnt expect to see THAT.. but there it was, a cross, about two ft tall and proportional in width, comprised out of the rainbow.. sitting in the air, about six feet away, beyond the wooden fence that separated my apartment from next door. It was above the carport. noone was around. I just sat and stared, and wondered where my camera was. I was afraid it would be gone if i left to search for it, so I stayed, wondering how it would end. Then I began to see it vanish piece by piece, and that was such an interesting thing to see.. "So thats how you will go".. it seemed very intelligent. No blinking out, no mass transparency and woosh it was gone. Just an intelligent, Im leaving, piece by piece..and then there was noone. Then, I stared at empty sky, as though it were never there. Ahhhh it was a great sight. Arcadia means everything to me. The city of Arcadia, California.

I tried to relax into the meditation tonight but my mind had trouble settling down, jumping all over the place with several quick images. Still, I believe it is important to post what happens during the meditations.

Saw the words.....Bulldog/Red.

Saw the word.....Arcadia.

Saw the Norway Spiral spinning in the blue color.
http://www.universetoday.com/47188/weird-giant-spiral-seen-in-sky-over-n...

Very quick but saw what looked like a brown uniformed arm with a state forestry patch. (Brown and Green pine trees on the patch).

There is a colorful neon sign that says, SUNDANCE.

Now an image of a bearded man approaching from the left, he is pale/ghostly looking, has a white beard and white hair. His image starts to multiply, filling my line of vision. He says, "see, I am everywhere!"

Shift.....Now we are both standing in front of a mirror/mirrors; a fun house maze of mirrors. He says, "see/understand we are a point of light reflected back into and from these mirrors. Our true point of light is currently here where we are standing but can be reflected in other forms and in other dimensions." Now his image blinks out but I can still hear his voice, he says, "when this central point of light has been removed (the God self) none of our other reflections can exist." I look around and the only image I can still see is my own reflection in the mirrors.

edit

The 'I Am' meditation seems difficult, but it is actually much easier than maintaining presence in the time stream. The labor necessary to do this is why the body ages and why it dies. Letting go of time is a journey back to innocence. It is falling and flying at the same time.

Into the meditation there is darkness.

A turning leaf (in color) is floating down onto the ground, it is in the shape of a three toed animal; I am also aware of a spicy but sweet aroma.

There is an image of a carrot like stick figure (no arms) with thin hair protruding from the top of the head. All of this is reminding me of a Polaroid photo being slowly developed and coming into focus against a dark background.

Now there is the sound of a DIDGERIDOO. (I have taken a lot of time trying to find an image or something of what I felt when I heard the sound but have not been successful). I have however included this short YouTube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gf0RrQ62jw8

Note.....The first thing I was aware of in this meditation was the appearance of cat eyes that looked like this.....

Addendum.....

Something you all might like to give a try as you meditate with Whitley and the group.....I discovered this after doing the Thursday, July 18 meditation.

EARTH TONE.....
http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_503484&feature=iv&...

The Universe Is The Flesh Of God.

This is the first time I joined the group. I introduced myself to you Whitley and I saw you in my mind's eye looking like you did at the Revelations Symposium in May. Then I got an image of the ocean's edge, a sandy beach with waves rolling in and being puled out in an ongoing cycle of energy. Then I saw/felt a wave of purple light/energy wash over me. I also got an image of grapes, painted on a glazed ceramic tile. But the color's weren't traditional - they were painted in blue with gold highlights.
--Michelle

"We pray not to any specific deity, but to that which draws the human soul to prayer, without placing the barrier of a name between us."

Tonight I could not get past these few words. (C Sharp, sing it, hum it).

This was very confusing as I tried to figure out all of the choices of C Minor or Major. When, 'Chopin - Nocturne in c sharp minor/the pianist 2002' came up as a choice, we connected. For me this meditation tonight is saying, 'PRAY THAT HUMANITY NEVER FORGETS IT.'

This evening I did read that Master Nazi hunter Peter Levenda will be interviewed on Dreamland this weekend.

The earth-year note corresponds exactly with "Sa" or "Sadja" the basic note, in Indian music Since thousands of years, the frequency of foetal note has never changed in Indian music. The Indian music guru teaches his disciples the note of 136 Hz, ("C" sharp). The aspiring young musician plays and sings this note, this vibration, over many years, so that it becomes a central element, and central vibration, of his or her whole being. She/he will never forget this note or play it wrongly. Anyone who has worked with Indian musicians will know how seriously they consider this fundamental aspect of their practice.

'Then extending that sensation to include the whole planet, we look into it, finding there a vast silence that is the most vividly alive presence a human soul can touch.'

Now in a deep meditation, I am aware of a man to my left; sitting in a chair and looking as though he is trying to make a decision. I am sitting in a chair at his right. With my mouth open, he slips in a piece of tin foil, it is bitter and my jaw clenches, the taste is unpleasant.

Shift…..Now in an American rocky desert location, on a mesa or mountain, with this same man and looking into a small opening.

Shift, he says, "look at the Emory Museum in Atlanta for the PECOS MAN."

It ends here, so I typed in http://carlos.emory.edu/ and could not find anything. THEN, continued on to find this…..

Signs of the Seers.....

http://www.texasmonthly.com/content/signs-seers

To test the idea, she began immersing herself in the scientific literature on the religion. Among modern shamanistic cultures from Siberia to Chile, she discovered, people told of a time long ago when the earthly and the spirit worlds had been one. At some point, however, the two realms had splintered apart, and humankind had lost its ability to commune with gods and supernatural beings. Only a chosen few, the shamans, were still capable of crossing the great divide between the worlds: Their method of transport was the trance. Forsaking their earthbound bodies in an induced state of rapture, they called on the help of certain guardian animals and embarked on the perilous voyage to the otherworld. There they confronted deities and waged supernatural battles in order to see into the past, divine the future, cure illness, and escort the souls of the dead to their final home. “I like to call them supramen,” says Turpin, “because they were over everything, by the very fact they could die and be reborn.”

Dodging hostile forces, which were often represented in the rock art by a rain of spears, the shamans described their entrance to the sacred realm through a small circular portal. “See that hole over there?” Turpin asks, walking to the back wall of Panther Cave and pointing at a large painted red dot. “See the circle with the lines coming out and the bird rising out of that? That’s what I think is the hole of the universe, the portal to the divine.” Recent psychological studies, moreover, suggest that such an image stems directly from human neural wiring. When entering deep drug-induced trances, subjects of experiments consistently report the sensation of being drawn through a deep hole.

I was well into a half hour before I was able to see these two images.

Image one.....A small statue of the god Janus.
He is usually depicted as having two faces, since he looks to the future and to the past.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Janus

Image two.....Flashes of lightning, arcing and connecting one to another as though there were poles but I did not see any visible poles or power lines, only bolt like flashes. The flashes appeared to be circling our planet but staying on the same parallel. (Perhaps the 45th).

Meditation June 27: Carollee, interesting you should see flashes around the 45th parallel (N or S). What I saw were gray bands stretching from the earth outward into space, stretching to other planets in our solar system, as though connected one to another. I wish I could say that the bands were vibrant, white, sparkly, energetic bands of light connectivity, but they weren't. It felt as though the connections were a kind of rubber band of energetic tensile strength. How to express unknown concepts using only known language. It was as though I was in space, looking at a map of our solar system in real time, with all these bands connecting from the earth to our other planets, and then connecting one to another in a sweeping fashion.
