I recently heard on a youtube video the mention of two characteristics commonly found among starseeds, neither of which were on the long lists of traits I’d seen before.

The first was having no desire for children. Some people see this as rather strange, even incomprehensible.

From what I heard, starseeds do not want to get bogged down in Earth’s human reincarnation cycle. They simply want to get out of here (the faster the better!), and therefore do not want any additional attachments to this planet.

The second characteristic was suicidal tendencies. Starseeds do not have suicidal thoughts for the reasons many others have them. It’s simply a matter of having to live in what they view as a primitive and unenlightened society that so turns them off and makes this life difficult. They just want to get out of here, and to get back home to a far better world.

Imagine if you will, if you were suddenly transported back in time to the Dark Ages in European history, or to some really barbaric age in mankind’s past. This is how starseeds view the human Earth experience today. They come from places that are far more highly evolved/advanced and enlightened. Their races are much more intimately connected to their Source/Higher Self. They do not experience the extreme disconnection so common among Earth humans.

Starseeds came here for a reason, and would much prefer to finish that experience before checking out. But the suffocating feeling of being in such a severely restrictive environment and body is not easy, and may at times lead to thoughts of suicide as a possible way out. The best way of coping with this is to tap into Source energy, and feeling that energy lifts you above any situation. It is indeed true that alignment with your Source/Higher Self trumps everything else.



Contact with Arcturians

Posted: June 26, 2017 in Spiritual/Mystical

I’ve been stunned to my core over the past few months, and I’ve had new realizations over the past few days. At the moment, the new ones are related to the Arcturians.

Even though I’ve believed that UFOs and extraterrestrials were real as far back as I can remember, and I’d listened to the Art Bell radio program for two years from 1997-99, I’d never paid much attention to the various extraterrestrial races until this year when I was listening to Bashar – channeled by Darryl Anka. Most of what Bashar was saying about spirituality I’d already realized, and what he was saying about ETs also made sense and felt right to me. So I began listening to other people who were channeling ETs. Some of them resonated with me more than others.

Somewhere along the way I heard someone say the Arcturians were the most highly evolved/advanced race in our galaxy. This certainly got my attention. Then I came across the above picture, which I found beautiful – even mesmerizing.

Then a few weeks ago I was meditating and suddenly got a mental picture of the word “Arcturian” spelled out, very similar to what happened during my hypnotic regression session with certain answers being spelled out. This seemingly came out of the blue, as I had not been thinking about Arcturians at all. My intuition told me that this mental impression came from actual extraterrestrial beings.

This past Saturday I bought a crystal pendulum in order to help me communicate with the entities that were wanting to connect with me. I had heard Aridif (an Ancient Pleiadian channeled by Rob Gauthier) explain how to use the pendulum to contact entities.

When I got home Saturday night I used the pendulum. I got answers to all my questions, the strongest answer coming when I asked if any Arcturians were present. The pendulum swung wildly in the “yes” direction. It also answered “yes” to a question about having been on Arcturian starships in either physical or nonphysical form.

This news greatly excited me, and then I woke up in the middle of the night the following evening (early Monday morning) with the impression that I had been an Arcturian in other incarnations. My intuition was telling me this was true.

I had never even heard the term “starseed” until a couple of months ago when I was listening to a video where the medium Jamie Butler mentioned it. Just as I finished listening to that video, a close Filipino friend texted me with the very excited news that he had recently realized he was a starseed. The synchronicity of this event got my attention, and I searched the internet for characteristics of starseeds, discovering that I had almost all of those traits.

I soon noticed that different people on the internet define the term “starseed” quite differently, but I don’t think it’s important to try to label people and put them in certain boxes.

What I do feel is important is that I have a deep connection to the Arcturians. This is big news for me, as the revelations keep flooding in almost daily right now, so I’m sure there will be further posts soon.

Many humans waste a lot of time trying to distinguish between what is true and what is false. When they encounter something they believe is false, they often begin pushing against this “falsehood”, or against the person speaking the falsehood, which results in getting all tied up in negative energy.

But here’s a brief description of what’s actually going on:

There are an infinite number of realities or parallel universes in which everything that can be imagined already exists, is real, and is “true”. Regardless of how outlandish a belief may appear to you, there is at least one person who genuinely believes it and therefore perceives and experiences it in their parallel reality. It is as “real” to them as anything you experience in your own reality.

Instead of attempting to distinguish between what is “true” and what is “false”, simply realize and accept that everything is “true” in some reality. All things are indeed “true”. All things are Source energy, an endless stream of energy that encompasses everything.

It’s not a matter of whether something is true or false. It is a matter of whether it resonates with your truth or not. It’s your decision as to what you choose to experience as your own truth in your own reality.

When you encounter something that does not resonate with you, simply lay it aside as a non-resonant truth. Recognize that it is a truth, not a falsehood. It’s just not a truth that you prefer to experience. In other words, simply accept it (rather than pushing against it). Allow others to experience whatever they choose to experience – for they’re going to anyway!

By doing this, you give yourself peace of mind. You do not need to waste your energy trying to push against things or against people. Simply lay aside non-resonant truths and ignore them. Focus on what you DO choose to experience. Revel in those things, and get excited about them. The more you do this, the more you attract those things into your own experience.

[This post was inspired by Aridif, an Ancient Pleiadian entity from Deneb who is channeled by Rob Gauthier, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwwZkQwJe9U]

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” – Albert Einstein

During an About Oneness radio call-in show, a caller was interested in making contact with the extraterrestrial entities around him, and asked Aridif (an Ancient Pleiadian from Deneb channeled by Rob Gauthier) how he could tell the difference between his own imagination and a real connection with the extraterrestrial entities. Aridif’s reply was like dropping a hand grenade into my consciousness. Here’s part of the caller’s question and Aridif’s answer in part:

Caller: How to discern between something I’ve imagined in my mind versus a true connection?

Aridif: What we can tell you about imagination versus true connection is that there is no difference. When you are using your imagination you are connecting to portions of your consciousness that create. While you are creating you are tapping into all parallel existences in which one of those imaginations exists. What we can tell you is that when you begin to stop questioning whether it is true or whether it is imagination, then you will know it is true. 

[To listen to the complete question and answer, it’s at 1:02:00 of this interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwHBiPSxsss]

There are an infinite number of parallel realities/universes all around us. Everything that any of us can possibly imagine already exists, is real, and is “true” in at least one of these parallel realities. When we use our imagination, we begin shifting into parallel realities where this thing we’re imagining already exists. (We are always shifting through countless parallel realities every second anyway).

So we don’t have to create something out of thin air. Nor do we ever need to change the Earth/reality we’re in. Rather, we simply shift to different parallel realities where what we’re imagining is already manifested. And when we really believe in what we’re imagining, it speeds up the process.

If this idea seems strange, it’s only because we were raised in a society that takes its left-brain orientation to such an extreme that it almost completely ignores our right-brain abilities. It simply does not understand what imagination truly is, nor the enormous power behind it. Even when someone like Einstein makes statements like the quote above, it seems a complete mystery to most people. Another Einstein quote is “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Clearly, Einstein saw things very differently from our modern materialistic society.

And so, understand that you are the creator of your reality. Focus on whatever you prefer to experience. Imagine it. Visualize it. Bring it into your perception and experience. If you desire a real connection with nonphysical or extraterrestrial entities, imagine it. They are always available and ready to connect with you.

One more thing – relax and have fun with it. Play with it. Be light and easy. There’s nothing serious going on here anyway – so lighten up, human.

Fear is an Illusion

Posted: June 21, 2017 in Spiritual/Mystical

“..the only thing we have to fear…is fear itself – nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror..” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Fear is the primary negative emotion from which all other negative emotions stem. It is the opposite of love, which is the primary positive emotion. Love is the natural emotion one feels when you are in alignment with your True Self, your Source. Fear is the emotion you feel when you are out of alignment with your True Self/Source. And while you can never be truly disconnected from your Source, you can certainly create the experience of being disconnected. It feels like you’re disconnected, which is when fear rushes in. You feel vulnerable, threatened. But all of that is an illusion. If you understand who you really are, you know you can never be truly threatened by anything. This is why you feel so powerful and fearless when you’re tapped into Source. It’s your natural state of being, who you really are.

Our modern society (and being an American, I’m mostly referring to American society) is largely fear-based. After having lived in Thailand for 15 years, I moved back to the USA for a year. I was stunned at how many television commercials were fear-based. The general message seemed to be – fear this, worry about this, be concerned about this, here’s something else you should be worried about. It was just unbelievable to me, and quite ridiculous. If you fall into that trap, it wrecks havoc on your vibration – which determines how you perceive and experience everything. It’s no wonder so many Americans are stressed out!

Of course, many organized religions are fear-based to some extent, some more so than others. While virtually all religions can be uplifting and spiritually helpful, the fear-based stuff is always 100% man-made. It has nothing at all to do with Source/God and is often just an attempt to control people.

But here’s the main point I’m getting to: Hollywood does the same thing with the idea of “aliens” that religion does with “God”. It incorporates a bunch of fear-based ideas into the equation that has nothing to do with the subject matter. It is merely the distorted perception of humans who are experiencing a disconnection from their Source/Higher Self.

Fear is always the same thing – people are projecting their own inner fears onto an external experience, and perceiving it as fearful. Everything is actually neutral. It is we who perceive things as positive or negative based on how we are interpreting them. We are vibrational translators, we are translating energy into forms we can perceive with our physical senses. We are constantly categorizing and labeling things, and putting them into our neat little boxes. It’s our rational mind’s way of making sense of the world around us. But it’s just make-believe. We are creating these perceptions.

I quit going to horror movies or scary ghost films long ago. Being sensitive to energy, I would quickly feel the energy of fear – and it’s not something I enjoy. Some people evidently enjoy the experience, but I don’t. It feels very uncomfortable  to me, and is diametrically opposed to the Source energy that I feel so often, and which feels so natural to me. I suspect that many humans like the sheer drama of fear.

It appears that the U.S. government is largely approaching the whole subject of extraterrestrials and UFOs with fear. That’s hardly surprising since the government is made up of humans, most of whom are wallowing in the illusion of fear rather than connection. When the government comes out and finally says something about ETs/UFOs it will likely be distorted by fear.

Anyone who has realized their true nature – that we are all Source energy temporarily perceiving through a human form – knows that there is nothing to fear, for the simple reason that there is nothing that is not Source. If you’re fearing anything at all, you’re actually fearing yourself. As silly as this may sound, it’s what huge numbers of humans are doing.

Those who fear extraterrestrials are merely projecting their own inner fears onto the ETs and perceiving them as negative. This is very common for humans who are not used to encountering such a high level of energy. The high energy of extraterrestrials has the effect of forcing the repressed emotions of humans to the surface, which for most contains a lot of fear.

Entities that most humans would consider negative do exist, but so what? There are all sorts of lower vibrational nonphysical entities, but none of them can touch you. In fact, they cannot even enter into your reality unless you are a vibrational match to their energy. Otherwise, you cannot see them or perceive them at all. And what’s the best way to allow them into your reality so that you can perceive them? By fearing them. The vibration of fear is so low that you can become a vibrational match to their low energy.

But even if you do this and see them, remember that everything you perceive is ultimately a projection of your own mind. This is one of the main points of the Tibetan Book of the Dead. It’s all a projection of your own consciousness. It’a a part of yourself that is being reflected back to you through an external form.

Many today are fearing the Ancient Reptilians (Alpha Draconians), and it’s that human fear that keeps them hanging around. These entities feed off of fear. If every human stopped fearing them tomorrow, they’d have no choice but to leave and go somewhere else. That’s exactly what happened in their original universe, which is why they came into our universe in the first place.

I don’t want to spend much time talking about such things, but the bottom line is this: unless you fear them, you cannot perceive them. They feed off fear, and by fearing them you’re inviting them into your reality. But the only card they have to play is bluff. They may look big, bad, and scary, but they’re not. First of all, you are only seeing your own inner fears being projected outwardly. You never see anything directly, you’re seeing your version/interpretation of the energy. Secondly, your Higher Self is a nonphysical entity that is millions of times more powerful than any physical being, including the Ancient Reptilians. (If you want to measure it by such terms). You are Source perceiving through your human eyes. The Ancient Reptilians are also Source in another form. They are you and you are them. Stop fearing yourself.

Of course, governments generally do not understand spirituality or who they really are. They tend to be quite paranoid and obsessed with protecting themselves and their countries. Because they view things from such a disconnected and distorted human perspective, they are projecting all kinds of fears onto the extraterrestrials – grouping them into “friendly” and “hostile” categories. I would advise ignoring this distorted perspective.

You will get infinitely better and more accurate information on this phenomenon by listening to the extraterrestrial entities themselves. There are many good channelers today who are delivering profound messages from these extraterrestrials. I recommend Rob Gauthier channeling Aridif and Darryl Anka channeling Bashar, but there are also many more. Check out youtube to find some that resonate with you.

There are also contactees who have had years of encounters with extraterrestrials, and have worked through their initial fear. Those who have come to a place where they view the experiences as profoundly spiritual and even blissful. You can find many such people on youtube.

As always, the best information comes from having your own direct, personal experience. If you want to experience ETs, simply ask them. There are many benevolent extraterrestrials who would be excited to interact with you.



During the past couple of weeks I’ve done three things that I’d been wanting to do for years – hypnotic regression, a sensory deprivation tank, and Reiki.

My dad asked some questions about the hypnotic regression session when he saw my brief mention of it on Facebook. The following is mostly taken from emails I sent him about the session:

The French hypnotherapist also does pranayama and Kundalini yoga. He specializes in past life regression and meeting your spiritual masters/guides. What I really wanted was to find out more about the entities that I’ve been experiencing off and on since 1980. He recommended a brief past life regression, followed by the death transition experience where I’d be able to ask my spiritual guides directly. It worked, and I got my questions answered.

The past life part was much more emotional than I expected. The death transition was exactly what I expected – very easy, natural and familiar. The guides were beings of bright white light/energy.

During the hypnosis I felt a warm energy all around me, really noticeable when he brought me out of it. I was fully conscious and aware the whole time.

The sensory deprivation tank was very relaxing, much like a deep meditation. It’s pitch dark, soundproof, and feels like zero gravity because you’re floating on water with a huge amount of salt in it. The water and air is your body temperature, so after a few minutes you cannot feel your body. It felt familiar to me because I’ve been meditating more than ever recently.

[My dad asked some specific questions about a past life regression, reincarnation, and if the hypnosis was similar to my Pentecostal (Christian) religious experiences when I was in my 20s.]

Yes, past life regression is taking you back to a previous life. The hypnotic state is quite different from the Pentecostal experience. I would describe the Pentecostal experience as tapping into “Source” energy. (Source being the All That Exists, the Energy that both creates everything and is everything. Hindus call it “Brahman”). This is the same Source that near-death experiencers are attempting to describe when they get into the presence of the Light. (Some would call it “God”). It is an overwhelming sense/feeling of unconditional love and acceptance. The experience is powerful and transformative. You know you’ve tapped into the Ultimate, the very Source of happiness and joy. However, it’s really difficult to put into words or adequately describe. It must be experienced directly to be understood.

I am still tapped into this energy on a daily basis, though of course I no longer believe in the doctrines that the Pentecostals teach and believe. Anyone can tap into this energy in any religion or without a religion at all. I feel the same energy every time I meditate. All religions are attempting to describe this energy in various ways.

The hypnotic state that I experienced was quite subtle. I could feel the familiar Source energy, but in addition there was a warm energy surrounding me that I’ve never felt before. It was extremely relaxing. Subtle mental images would come. When I would accept and follow them they became clearer.

I haven’t tried self-hypnosis since the session, but it might be easier to do now. I actually tried it with a guided youtube video the night before the session, and did have subtle mental images then too.

I have believed in “reincarnation” for 20 years, though not quite in the way religions tend to present it. Organized religions tend to distort things, or dumb them down for the masses. But the bottom line is that virtually all humans have lived many incarnations either on this planet, on other planets, or in completely different realities.

One experience I wanted to know about was probably the most dramatic one because I was wide awake, fully conscious and aware. It happened in 1980 in the basement bedroom of your house one night. I was alone and lying down in bed but not yet ready to go to sleep. (I had just joined the Pentecostal church a few weeks earlier). Suddenly, and seemingly out of the blue, I felt a hand touch my shoulder. Immediately the Source/Holy Ghost energy surged through my whole body and completely paralyzed me. I could not move at all. It felt exactly like the “Holy Ghost” energy, but much stronger. I was trying to turn my head to see this Being beside me, but I could not move. At the time, I perceived it as benevolent – either an “angel” or maybe Jesus himself. So I wasn’t really scared, but the enormous power of this entity was mind-blowing and shocking. It’s one thing to theorize about such entities, but to actually experience one first-hand is a very different thing. I felt completely and utterly helpless in the presence of this entity, and was certainly glad it was benevolent.

I also wanted to know who the entities were that I’ve perceived on quite a few occasions through the years when I’d wake up in the night with sleep paralysis in an out-of-body state. These started in 1980, and were initially shocking and bewildering to me. The energy around the bed was very tangible, pulsating and vibrating – as was I in this nonphysical state. The energy was also very loud at times. I perceived entities also, and being Pentecostal at the time, I did not perceive them as benevolent. I was scared, didn’t know what they were or what was happening. The whole experience was bizarre and inexplicable to me at the time.

Then 17 years later I heard William Buhlman on the radio describing out-of-body experiences, and it fit my experiences perfectly. I had been having the very beginning of a typical OBE but just didn’t know what it was. These kind of experiences are found in most cultures throughout history and all over the globe (about 89%). After realizing what they were, when they’d happen again I would perceive the beings as benevolent spirit guides. Sometimes I could actually hear them speaking, though this may well have been some form of telepathy.

In the late 1990s I listened and read quite a bit on the whole UFO/Extraterrestrial phenomenon. The evidence was quite strong, and I believed they were real. I had the impression they were extradimensional – able to come in and out of our physical reality at will. I also knew the experience with them was often a deeply and profound “spiritual” one. The Harvard professor John Mack’s “Abduction” clearly showed this, and that’s the conclusion he came to after interviewing some 60 abductees.

But because I had no conscious awareness of any experience with ETs or UFOs, I laid the whole topic aside and pursued more relevant matters.

Fast forward to 2017…

I’ve read and listened to the best spiritual teachers I could find since 1997. Over the years I found several human teachers I liked, but in 2006 I read one of the Seth books after hearing many people consider them the best books they’ve ever read. I was blown away by the profound nature of what Seth was saying, as it resonated deeply with me. I thought it was deeper and superior to any human philosophy I’d ever come across. Seth claimed to be a nonphysical entity that was channeled by Jane Roberts from the 1960s – 1980s. Jane Roberts was an intellectual who had no interest in spiritual, psychic, or paranormal things until these bizarre experiences began with Seth. She turned the channelings into books which became hugely popular and single-handedly started the modern New Age movement. As for me, I didn’t really care who Seth was or where the information was coming from. The messages themselves were what thrilled me, and gave me piercing insights into the nature of reality and who we really are. It was almost irrelevant where the information actually came from. (Seth does not claim to be an extraterrestrial, but a nonphysical entity who is no longer incarnated in any physical form).

Then I discovered Abraham-Hicks in 2014. “Abraham” is a group of nonphysical beings who have been speaking through the Esther Hicks since 1985. She does not even use the term “channeling”, and often refers to Abraham as “Infinite Intelligence” or simply as “inspiration”. It was Seth who first said, “You create your own reality.” For the past 30 years, Abraham has been explaining in detail exactly how we create our own reality. Again, the information itself is what attracted me to Abraham.

A few months ago I discovered another channeled entity called Bashar. When I first heard Bashar he was saying everything I’d already realized myself about who we are, what reality is, what “spirituality” is really all about, etc. So it all resonated deeply with me. He also talks about extraterrestrials and UFOs in much detail. Bashar says he is an extraterrestrial from a planet in a parallel universe. Once again, it was the information itself that I found so profound, and as I listened to what he said about ETs, UFOs, and the origin of humans, it all made perfect sense.

By the way, because of my many years of direct experience with high vibrational, nonphysical energy, I am very sensitive to energy and can immediately tell if a book or teacher resonates with me or not. It’s an obvious case of something being deep and profound and of interest to me, or not.

Some of the stuff Bashar was saying about ETs and human origins would be shocking to some people. But it all just resonated with me and didn’t faze me too much.

A couple months ago I came across another teacher I like a lot called Aridif, channeled by Rob Gauthier. Aridif has, at times, completely blown my mind. He has lobbed several grenades into my consciousness, forcing me to expand my awareness. He says he is an Ancient Pleiadian whose race moved to the planet Deneb. He is an upper 6th density (the highest physical level) entity who is ready to move into 7th density (the first nonphysical density). That is probably why his messages are so profound – his consciousness is extremely high for a physical being.

So at the moment I’d have to say Aridif and Bashar are probably my all-time favorite teachers, and both are extraterrestrials. I’ve also discovered other ETs who resonate with me, as well as humans who are having incredible direct experiences with ETs. I must say I never expected any of this to happen, and would have been surprised just a few months ago. But I know enough to follow my bliss, and this is where it’s leading me.

As I realized more and more that extraterrestrial entities have played a huge role in human history, and are deeply intertwined with what we think of as “spirituality”, I began to wonder if I have had contact with them but was just not consciously aware of it. This is very common among humans who have had contact. The ETs are easily able to block out all of the human’s memories of a contact experience, and the human brain alone can also do this if it perceives the experience as too bizarre or threatening.

I don’t like the term “abduction” because it implies being taken against your will. While this is how the human’s conscious awareness may perceive the experience, the channeled ETs say that no one is ever taken unless that person agreed to it on a spiritual level before incarnating into the human body. (The Greys who often do the “abducting” are actually future Earth humans from a parallel timeline who destroyed their planet, were forced to mutate, and are now unable to reproduce. They need “past”, pre-mutated humans in order to create hybrid races to continue their own physical existence.) As bizarre as this may sound, it certainly seems to be what the “abduction” phenomenon is all about.

Knowing the ETs often take humans during their sleep state – they actually take the “astral body” while the human is having an OBE, I began wondering if they had something to do with my own OBEs. Also, I was increasingly feeling a general connection to the highly evolved ETs, and my intuition was telling me there’s more to this picture than I was consciously aware of. So that’s another thing I wanted to ask during the hypnosis.

The mental images during hypnosis were very subtle at first, but they got clearer. I first perceived a boy standing alone in a mountainous area overlooking a huge canyon or drop-off. The vegetation was lush, and the word “Peru” came to me out of nowhere. The hypnotist asked for the year. I had no idea at all, but then I suddenly felt and saw the number “900”. I knew it was 900 A.D.” How you’re getting this information is very difficult to describe to Westerners who tend to be extremely left-brain oriented – to the point of almost completely ignoring their right-brain abilities. But it’s surprising how easy and natural it is. It’s not difficult at all, really just about relaxing and allowing the energy/inspiration to flow.

The boy comes to this place of breathtaking natural beauty (it reminded me of Machu Picchu) because it is a spiritual experience for him. He feels close to nature and close to Source here. He is deeply interested in spirituality. The hypnotist then took me forward in time. I see a tribal religious ceremony with dancing and music/drumming. The boy is now a spiritual leader, a shaman. The people come to him for all kinds of things because he is more connected than they are, and can see and know things they cannot.

Next we go forward to his death. I see him lying on a cot, people are lined up to see him. Up until this point I was viewing the whole thing from a detached perspective, like looking at a 3rd person (though I knew the shaman was me). But when the moment of death came, I became the shaman’s spirit/consciousness that began to rise up above his body. This familiar floating sensation was so very easy, natural, and blissful. In seconds I’m in a beautiful place of Source energy, and several of my Spiritual Guides are there. These highly evolved entities are made of bright white light/energy. I mentally ask them questions. No words are necessary, communication is done telepathically.

Who was the Being who touched my shoulder in 1980? Immediately I get a mental picture of one of my Spiritual Guides.
What about the OBE entities? For some reason, I wasn’t clear on the answer to this. There may have been many different types of entities over the years. Or the whole experience may have been so otherworldly that my brain couldn’t translate it into anything that would make sense to my conscious awareness. So I move on to the next question, which cut to the heart of the matter anyway.

Have I been on starships/UFOs? “Yes”.
Then I get a mental picture of being in a UFO. It’s very clean and white. I see ETs that look like the often-described Nordics or Tall Whites. They are humanoid, and seem to be in charge. It’s their ship. I also see a few Greys.

I ask the Guides what my main reason for coming into this incarnation was. An immediate answer – “You already know.” Indeed, I had already realized in the past few weeks and months that I came here to be involved in the shifting of consciousness to a higher level that’s taking place on Earth at this time. This is a momentous event in human history. We are evolving to a higher level. They tell me my whole life has been preparing for this.

So those were the basics of the hypnosis experience.

More on ETs, UFOs and the government:

Many people have come forth and admitted they’ve had personal encounters with ETs and/or UFOs – CIA agents, military intelligence people, fighter pilots, commercial pilots, astronauts, politicians, world leaders, scientists who worked at S4 near Area 51, etc. Not to mention thousands or even millions of regular people. The UFO incident known as the “Phoenix Lights” was witnessed by thousands in 1997, yet the mainstream media barely mentioned it. Even the Republican governor of Arizona has finally admitted he witnessed the enormous spacecraft himself, saying you could not only see it, but feel it. He said he knew it was extraterrestrial because you could just feel it in your gut.

(The channeled ETs say that the “Phoenix Lights” UFO was flown by the Yahyel – an extremely benevolent race. They are one of the hybrid groups created by the Grey abductions, and consider us family. They will also be the first to make open contact with us because of their close connection to us. The purpose of the Phoenix Lights incident was to gauge how ready we were for open contact. The fact that our media barely mentioned it clearly showed them we were not ready).

The energy of these highly evolved extraterrestrials is extremely high from a human perspective. The effect on humans is that it forces our suppressed emotions to the surface, and could cause some to go into psychological shock. This is why so many humans initially perceive their contact with ETs as frightening – they are projecting their inner fears onto the external experience. But many contactees who have repeated experiences and work through their fears begin perceiving the experiences as very positive, even blissful.

I have listened and read many spiritual teachers through the years, especially since 1997 when I had an awakening and realized what was basically going on. I read well over 150 books, maybe 200, on anything I thought could give me more insight. The most amazing thing was that I kept coming across the same insights over and over again no matter where I looked. From all kinds of direct personal experiences such as near-death experiences, OBEs, insights from meditation, entheogens/psychedelics, encounters with ETS/UFOs, insights from mystics, shamanism, all kinds of psychic or paranormal phenomenon, and various other mystical experiences. Also from Eastern religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, and indigenous religions all over the globe, as well as the mystical elements within Christianity (Gnosticism), Judaism (Kabbala), and Islam (Sufism). We could also throw in inspired writings of all kinds – Emerson, Thoreau, numerous poets throughout history, as well as our very best scientists such as Schrodinger, Planck, and Einstein. Also, more recent scientific research has shed much light on all this. No matter where you look, you come across the same ideas. But most importantly, if you have your own mystical/spiritual experiences yourself then you have the most powerful evidence of all – which is always direct personal experience.

So here are some of the major themes found repeatedly in the above areas:

1.Everything that exists is energy, and this energy is aware. It is conscious. It is alive. It is information itself.

2. There is ultimately only One Being that exists – in the universe and in every other reality. This One Being is a gigantic energy gestalt. It is present everywhere, it is the stuff that everything is made of. It is the very ground of all being.

3. Ultimate Reality is nonphysical. It is pure Awareness. Pure Consciousness. Mystics have called it The Void. Buddhist concepts were once translated as “nothingness”. However, “formlessness” would be more accurate. It is the pure Consciousness that creates all form.

4. This One Being/Energy desires direct experience. It creates countless forms and focuses its consciousness through each form – for the sheer experience of it. It divides its consciousness into an infinite number of fractalized consciousnesses.

5. Every physical form that exists is simply this One Being perceiving through that particular form. Each form is a specific perspective.

6. Humans are, of course, the One Being perceiving through the human form. That which some religions call “God” is not a separate being from humans. “God” is the very ground of all being, including humans. Humans are literally “God” manifested in physical form. So is everything else.

7. Because there is nothing outside of this One Being, it obviously rules out any idea of divine judgement or punishment. The only thing this One Being could possibly punish would be Itself – because there is nothing else. That, of course, would be absurd. The idea of divine punishment is entirely man-made, often just an attempt to control other people.

8. The most accurate English word to describe the One Being would probably be Love itself. Complete unconditional love with no judgement whatsoever. Complete and total acceptance.

9. All physical forms are simply the One Being moving in and out of physical form. The form lasts a relatively short time and then dies, but the Consciousness is untouched by the “death” of the physical form. Most streams of consciousness have experienced many physical forms, many “lives”.

10. Each fractalized consciousness chooses to incarnate in a physical form. There are many choices, and some choose to incarnate as a human on planet Earth.

11. In order to get the most out of the experience, the fractalized consciousness agrees to a kind of self-induced amnesia during the physical experience. This is to make the experience more real, and to gain the maximum benefit from the experience.

12. There are an infinite number of parallel universes and other realities. The only difference between them is the rate or frequency that the energy is vibrating.

13. All of these infinite number of realities exist in the same “space”. Time and space are actually illusions. Everything that exists is here and now.

14. You can only perceive energy that is a vibrational match to your own energy. All other energies are invisible to you.

15. A great analogy of how reality works is our radio or television. There are many radio stations broadcasting. All of them exist and are real, yet you can only perceive the one that your radio is tuned to. Your frequency must match the frequency of the station in order for you to perceive it. If you set your radio to 91.1, you cannot hear or perceive the station broadcasting on 105.5. Likewise, there are an infinite number of realities or parallel universes. All of them exist and are real, but we can only perceive the one that is a vibrational match to our own energy/vibration. There are many television stations also, but you can only see and hear the one that you tune to. The others are completely invisible to you until you change your channel to that frequency.

16. Also, the radio DJ is not inside the physical radio, nor are the TV characters inside the television box. Those physical items, like our physical bodies, are simply modes of expression for the nonphysical energies. When you turn the radio or TV off, the nonphysical energies do not cease to exist. They are still very much there, and still broadcasting. The death of the radio/TV box does not touch the nonphysical energy at all. The boxes are just one of many forms through which the nonphysical energy can flow.

17. We are constantly shifting through an infinite number of parallel realities every second. The ones we shift to match our own inner vibration – which is determined by our thoughts and beliefs. Reality is like a film running through a movie projector. Each parallel reality is a still frame on the film. When it is run through the projector (consciousness) the rapidly changing frames create the illusion of motion. This is actually what is happening with what we perceive as an external world around us.

18. In higher nonphysical realms it is obvious that thought creates reality because it happens instantaneously. However, in the slower, dense energy of physical reality, the illusion of time and space creates the illusion that things and events are just happening arbitrarily to you – rather than that they are happening as a direct result of your own thoughts and beliefs.

Highly evolved extraterrestrial entities are well aware of all of the above insights. All of that is very elementary stuff to them. As Bashar says, “This is just simple physics.”

Some of them are hundreds or thousands of years more advanced than Earth humans. Others are millions of years ahead of humans. Some are so advanced they don’t even need spaceships to travel – they simply do it by thought alone. None of them travel through physical space to get to Earth – that would be extremely primitive and absurd to them. They use far more advanced technology.

Some speculation on why the U.S. government has been so secretive on this subject matter:

So why has the U.S. government been so secretive about ETs and UFOs?  Back in the 1940s the government was evidently confronted with something far more powerful than themselves. They were not even in any position to protect their own people and nation from any imagined “threat” – if indeed any threat ever developed. This feeling of powerlessness does not set well with humans who are already disconnected from their Source/Higher Self, and it causes humans to do very strange things – just look at human history on this planet.

The government also may have felt it had discovered things that would be so shocking to so many people that chaos might ensue. They may have feared the collapse of organized religion. Can you imagine how a 1940s-America would  have reacted if the government had come out and told people that humans were actually created by the genetic science of extraterrestrials? That ETs took humanoid apes on Earth and mixed their own DNA with them to create a hybrid species we call homo sapiens? How would Christian fundamentalists have reacted to this news? (For that matter, how would Christian and Islamic fundamentalists react even today?) Evidently, this is no fantasy. At least one scientist who worked at S4 near Area 51 says he was given a book of documents to read, and this version of human origins was stated in the documents as if the government knew it as fact. Several other accounts reveal that the government also knows that the ancient gods of Greek mythology were actually ETs. And they surely realize the same is true of the gods of many other ancient civilizations as well. Clearly, they know that ETs have been dealing with Earth humans for many thousands of years – indeed, from the very beginning of the human race on this planet.

The channeled ETs have said these same things, and I put far more trust in them than anything any human government says. In fact, I was somewhat surprised to hear the government even knew about some of these things. But at this point in 2017 there may be a bigger reason the government has not yet come out with full disclosure of whatever they know. Certain people in-the-know fear prosecution for some of the things that have gone on for the past 70-plus years.

Another school of thought is that the powers-that-be do not want to give up their power – which is what would happen if people discovered that these elite knew about free energy from crashed UFOs, as well as from Nicola Tesla and numerous other inventors.

The big difference between most people in the governments (and indeed most humans overall) and those who understand metaphysics/spirituality and who they really are, is the fear factor. Those who know their True Self know there is nothing to fear – from ETs or anything else. Such people have no fear of death either. Unfortunately, many humans do not even understand who they themselves are or what they are doing here, much less who or what the ETs are. Such people have inner fears that they project onto their external experiences. And when it comes to something like ETs, it’s easy for such people to project an enormous amount of fear onto any encounter they have, thus distorting the whole experience and perceiving it as frightening. Governments tend to be rather paranoid to begin with, so it’s not surprising that they project their fears onto the ETs. Therefore, any announcement that the U.S. government ever makes about ETs/UFOs will likely be distorted with their own fears.

You will get a far more accurate picture of ETs by doing any of the following things:

1. By having your own direct experience with them.

2. By listening to what the ETs have to say through the best channelers. (Such as Rob Gauthier or Darryl Anka)

3. By listening to people who have had regular encounters with ETs and have already worked through their own fears on the subject.

There is much more that could be said on this topic, and probably will be in upcoming posts.


Briefly, here’s the big picture:

You are a non-physical being who chose to temporarily inhabit a physical, human form. The entire Universe (Multi-verse actually, since there are countless realities) is really One Being, and everything that exists is that One Being perceiving through each form. You are that One Being, and so is everyone and everything else. You can call the One Being anything you like – Source, God, Brahman, Higher Self, whatever. It makes no difference, they’re all just human labels for the one Ultimate Reality.

The One Being is a gigantic Energy gestalt, and everything that exists is this Energy. It is non-physical. It is vibrational. It could also be called Awareness or Consciousness. It exists without the physical body or any form at all. When it inhabits a human body the brain acts as an interface connecting the non-physical Awareness with the physical body.

When the physical body dies, you (the Real Self) will return to your non-physical home where you come from. This is normal and natural and most humans have done this numerous times.

There is nothing negative about death at all. It is the ultimate illusion, as Osho said. In the afterlife there is no judgment, punishment, or any of the negative stuff man-made religious dogmas teach out of ignorance (or as a way of controlling people).

You are a creator and you came into your physical form to create your own reality, as you do in every moment. You are a microcosm of the Whole, and because the Universe is holographic, each small part actually contains the Whole. As Rumi said, “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean, in a drop.”

When Seth said “You create your own reality”, he did not mean that everyone creates the reality they want all the time. Many humans are, in fact, creating a reality they emphatically don’t want. This is simply because they are focused on what they don’t want (or the lack of, or absence of what they want) most of the time, and whatever you focus on is what you get back.

Your thoughts and beliefs create your reality. You perceive and experience whatever you focus on, because the so-called “physical world” is not something “out there” that is separate from you. It is a mirror reflection of your inner reality, created entirely by your brain/mind. You are constantly translating vibrations into a reality your physical senses can perceive.

If you understand who your True Self is, then you’ll understand that everything is actually You appearing in different forms. “Do unto others as you’d have others do unto you”. Why? Because they are you. Everything you do to another you’re actually doing to yourself. This will become obvious when you return to non-physical and regain your memories of who and what you really are. As a human, you have given yourself a self-induced amnesia so that the physical experience will seem absolutely real, so that you may gain the maximum benefit from it.

You came into this physical form for the experience, knowing that you would continue to evolve as a result of it. Source/God/Higher Self is not static, but is continually evolving and expanding. Taking on human form is one way of doing this.

The Colour Purple

Posted: May 18, 2016 in Spiritual/Mystical

Several weeks ago I went to my favorite Bangkok bookstore and thumbed through a book on synchronicity for an hour before it was closing time. I’ve had many synchronistic experiences over the past two years or so, and lately many of them revolve around the colour purple.

This topic first came up when a British friend of mine was talking about how various people in England viewed a man wearing a pink shirt. I told him that in Thailand pink is not even considered the “gay colour”, but rather it’s purple. Later I mentioned that purple is rapidly becoming my favorite colour. I’ve always liked black and silver, but have recently been noticing what a lovely colour purple is.

Shortly after these brief conversations, I noticed purple began showing up in my experience a lot more, or so it seemed. On the night at the bookstore, the Siam Paragon was closing, and I decided I wanted purple to be the target of synchronistic experiences the rest of the evening, and headed for the exit.

I got to the escalator and noticed one whole side was draped in purple. Then I saw a display in purple on one of the floors on the way down. I got on the skytrain, glanced at the TV screen and there were a bunch of dancers in purple costumes. I looked out the window and saw a bright purple advertisement sign. As I approached the skytrain exit I took my ticket out of my pocket and glanced at it – the back side was facing up and it was solid purple. Before I’d gotten out of the skytrain area I ran into a bright purple Siam Commercial Bank. In the taxi the driver asked where to turn and I said at the 7-11 store, next to the purple bank.

Understand that I wasn’t looking around for something purple, it just kept coming straight into my experience, very easily and effortlessly. There was no trying at all on my part. I wasn’t even really thinking about it, until I saw something else purple. And every time it was somewhat surprising to me.

When I got home I sat down to reflect on what had happened, and got a profound impression that went something like this: “The outside always matches the inside. When you focus on something (anything) with your mind, it WILL manifest in the external world around you. It is impossible for it not to manifest because this is how the Universe works, this is how reality is created.”

The Universe/Source went on: Anything you think about, focus on, give your attention to, will manifest. And of course, that’s because the so-called external physical world that you perceive is a mind-created reality. It’s an externalization of your inner state, like looking into a mirror. It’s a vibrational interpretation. Your mind/consciousness translates the Energy around you into the picture you see, in much the same way a television translates Energy/waves into a picture. You also translate the Energy into sound in much the same way a radio does. All of your physical senses work this way. Your mind is creating a virtual reality that appears absolutely real to you.

I felt strongly impressed that whatever I wanted to experience, to just focus on it with my mind, and it would come into my experience. There’s no effort involved here at all. Be light and easy about it. And watch the Universe work the magic.

The next morning I walked to the gym. I’d no sooner got out of my building when I noticed a bunch of purple flowers I’d never seen before. When I got to the main street the first car I saw was bright purple. I walked along that street and saw some purple flower petals on the pavement, looked up and saw purple flowers in the tree above me. Glanced across the street and saw a bright purple ATM machine. Got to the gym and the staff was wearing purple shirts.

Several weeks have passed and the colour purple continues to come into my experience a lot, not least of which was when Prince died a few days later and all the tributes in purple that followed his death.

This week I finally bought the book “Synchronicity” and started reading the whole thing. I fully expect the synchronistic events (or my awareness of them) to continue to increase.

The World as a Mirror

Posted: August 22, 2015 in Spiritual/Mystical

“Every man’s world picture is and always remains a construct of his mind, and cannot be proved to have any other existence.” – Erwin Schrödinger 

What humans call “physical reality” is actually a mirror reflection of an inner reality. It is your own inner state objectified as something that appears to be “out there” and separate from you.

But everything that you’re perceiving through your five physical senses is created entirely by your own brain/mind.

The same process is at work when you dream at night. During the dream there often appears to be a landscape, other people, and other objects – all of which do not appear to be “you”, but other things that are separate from you. And all of it seems to be absolutely real as long as you remain in the dream.

But when you awaken, you say it was just a “dream”, and all of it was taking place within your own consciousness. All of it was created by you, a symbolic objectification of an inner reality.

The same is true of so-called “hallucinations”. If two people ingest a psychoactive plant or substance, one may have a blissful experience while the other has a nightmarish one. One may have a positive, life-transforming mystical experience while the other has a terrifying experience.

What is the difference? Simply your own inner state of being. If a person is filled with positive energy, is happy and joyful most of the time, they are very likely to have a positive experience. But a person who is dominated by negative energy such as fear, worry, or stress is likely to have a “bad trip”.

Whatever is inside of you comes out, and there’s no hiding from it. The truth is being shown to you.That’s why a wise person always makes sure his inner state is ready before using these substances as an entheogen.

When you first realize that the physical world you’re seeing is a mirror, and that it’s really all about you – showing you what’s going on inside of you, it can radically change how you view life.

There’s no longer any excuse to try and blame, or judge, or criticize others, because it’s never really about them. It’s all about you. In every moment, you are looking into a mirror.

If you don’t like what is manifesting around you, the best way to change it is to change your inside. You wouldn’t look into an actual mirror, see your hair needs combing, and try to push the comb through the glass to change it. Yet this is what many people try to do, and the result is endlessly pushing against this and that and wasting a lot of time and energy.

So much easier to just change your inside – change to more positive thoughts, which will immediately change your emotions. When you do this your vibration will raise, and the outer manifestation has to follow suit, just like a mirror.

The essence of your being is non-physical. You are a vibrational being, living in a vibrational universe, and you’re translating vibrations/energy into the picture of the world you see around you. What you perceive is always a vibrational match to a vibration you have going on inside of you.

And so when things happen that annoy you, or frustrate you, do some self-reflection. What do I have going on inside of me that’s causing me to perceive this? Become aware of whatever you’re experiencing. Observe it fully, and then just let it go. Don’t judge it or condemn it. Just observe it, and then allow it to dissipate.

The more positive you are, the more you focus on the things you like, the higher your vibrations raise. The easiest way to tell where you are vibrationally is by your emotions. The better you feel emotionally, the higher your energy is vibrating.

That’s why when you’re tapped into Source/God energy you feel so much happiness, joy, and peace. When you feel enthusiastic or passionate (about anything) you’re vibrating at a high level.

Conversely, when you feel negative emotions it’s a sign that you’re out of alignment with your true nature, your inner being, your Source. You’re looking at something in a very different way from how Source views it.

If you pay attention, you’ll notice a direct connection between your thoughts and emotions, and the physical world that’s manifesting around you. It’s no accident that positive people tend to have positive things happen to them, and negative people tend to experience negative things.

Accepting whatever arises in the present moment is an excellent practice. Simply observe it, accept it, and don’t try to push against it. If you want to change something, you can do so, but do it from a standpoint of first accepting that “it is what it is”, rather than trying to resist what’s already manifested.

When you accept what arises in the present moment, you’re actually accepting yourself, because the truth is that you are what’s arising in the present moment. You and the present moment are One. The present moment is the only place where Reality is, and you are that Reality.

From the human perspective, both we and the “outer world” appear to be flawed. They are not perfect.

But from Source’s perspective, everything is Perfect precisely as it is. Source is thrilled to have the physical experience through your human form, even the things humans perceive as negative.

So there’s no need to try to become “perfect” from the human point of view. You are always already fully accepted just as you are. This is what some religions call the “grace of God” – Source’s unconditional love and acceptance of apparently “flawed” creatures.

Accept yourself just as you are, and accept the physical world just as it is. When you begin to allow everything to be just as it is, and stop pushing against things, you begin to tap into your Higher Self/Source and take on that higher perspective.

Magical Journey to Cagayan de Oro

Magical Journey to Cagayan de Oro [Photo: Randy Chester]

Three weeks into my Philippines adventure, and suddenly I feel like Carlos Castaneda in Mexico, under the tutelage of don Juan Matus. My Filipino friend Fendi, aka “the shaman”, would seem bizarre and incomprehensible to most people, but that’s because most humans live their lives firmly shackled inside their culturally-constructed box. The shaman lives outside the box, and has no use for it.

Is it possible that even after living 15 years in Thailand, I’m still not completely purged of all my own cultural assumptions? Now that’s a disconcerting thought. I feel like I need to just shut up and observe.

This week I had to travel from Valencia to the coastal city of Cagayan de Oro, some 155 km to the northwest, to get a visa extension. I was hoping the shaman would go with me, but he insisted I make the trip alone.

“I’ve only been in this country 10 minutes, and I’ve never been to this place”, I protested in vain. The shaman’s mind was made up. “You can go alone”, he told me bluntly.

Almost from the moment I stepped out the door, it felt like I was on some surreal journey. Everything appeared to be Perfection unfolding. I mean, almost everything was so easy and effortless, like the Kosmos was dropping magical gifts into my lap.

The small bridge on the dirt road where I live had flooded the other day, leaving a muddy mess. I was wearing brand new dress shoes, along with dress slacks and shirt, due to the strict dress code of the immigration office. The shaman gave me two plastic bags to put over my shoes.

On the way, some friendly locals pointed to my bags and jokingly laughed. “Oh, hi-tech” I explained. More laughter. Yeah, well, whatever gets you through.

The bags not only worked to perfection, I was able to give them to a damsel in distress on the other side of the bridge, a college student who was practically in tears over the prospect of getting her clean uniform muddy. It was a win-win situation for everyone.

A passenger-less motorela was miraculously waiting (for what? me?) up the road at the Versatile Lodge when I got there, so I didn’t even have to walk the several more blocks to the main highway.

When I got to the bus station, I told the friendly guard I needed a bus to Cagayan de Oro, and he pointed to a red one just about to pull out. I jumped on and we took off immediately.

I was glad to see the back several rows empty, so I grabbed a seat and got out my camera. Only then did I notice it was a non air-con bus, but it was cloudy and so cool that air-con turned out to be unnecessary.

The bus conductor graciously allowed me to put down my window, and when I did it was almost too cool. Who needs air-con anyway?

I’d brought an awesome book along, “The Essential Ken Wilber”, to read on the bus, but rolling through the exotic countryside was so exciting I never even got around to opening the book.

Along the way, I waved and joked with the locals, especially those we passed along the side of the road, and also the food vendors who appeared at every stop.

Everything was going great, and as we neared Cagayan de Oro, a Westerner surprisingly boarded the bus. This was only the third Westerner I’d seen in over three weeks in the Philippines.

He took one of the seats behind me. Only later would I realize that the Kosmos had sent me an angel, cleverly disguised as an Australian tourist, to help me find my way around Cagayan de Oro.

This stranger soon struck up a friendly conversation. He announced his name as Peter, which upon later reflection I found both suspiciously Biblical and suspiciously sexual. I announced my name as Randy – explaining that my mother didn’t speak British English. He laughed and said, “Ha! That’s okay, mate!”

I told him the Brits I worked with in Bangkok chuckled so much over my name that I started using my middle name instead, which was spelled “Leigh”. Rather British-esque, huh?

The Aussie angel befriended me and offered some valuable information concerning the visa extension process. For example, I didn’t know I needed copies of two pages from my passport for immigration, as this information was not mentioned in the government website.

So I went with the Angel/Aussie to a nice mall where I got the copies. He even paid the full taxi fare. Somewhat suspiciously, he claimed he happened to be headed to this very same shop anyway. After offering to have lunch when we got our business finished, he then sent me to immigration in a taxi, instructing the driver where to take me.

He’d already adamantly told me on the bus not to go to the Department of Foreign Affairs, which was a different location from the Bureau of Immigration. Back in Valencia, two Filipinos had told me I needed to go to the DFA.

The taxi driver seemed to know where immigration was, but soon pulled over and asked another taxi driver. This one told him to take me to the DFA, so my driver headed there instead.

Four humans had now agreed that I needed to go to the DFA, and one angel had said no, that was the wrong place. Hmm, wonder who’s right?

That mix-up was the only thing that went “wrong” during the whole trip. But there’s an obvious lesson in it. Never trust humans over benevolent angels!

When I arrived at the DFA, the guard told me it was for Filipinos only, and that I needed to go to the Bureau of Immigration – precisely as the angelic Aussie had said. That’s the last time I will ever listen to humans over angels.

I arrived at immigration a short time later, and found a delightfully small office with friendly staff. I only saw one other foreigner/customer in there, and I was out in 10 minutes, business completed. If you’ve ever been to immigration in Bangkok, you know how miraculous this was.

I then took another taxi back to the bus station, the angel giving me the exact name, as there is more than one bus terminal in Cagayan de Oro, something else I didn’t know.

I easily boarded a bus back to Valencia, this time an air-con one. Again, the whole back section was empty, so I had my choice of seats and plenty of room. The windows were clean in this bus, so I could take good photos out of them.

Leisurely eating snacks I’d bought from vendors, I sent an sms to the shaman to tell him everything went amazingly well and I was now headed back. I mentioned that the Kosmos had even sent me an angel disguised as an Aussie tourist. (This was a bit odd because I never use the term “angel”. I always use “Spirit Guide” instead. I don’t know why I called the Aussie an angel.)

The shaman messaged back a “hahahaha!”.

About an hour later, I burst out laughing when synchronicity suddenly struck. They were playing good Western music on this bus, and now a song came on that I’d never heard before. As I listened, the lyrics kept repeating over and over and over, “Send me an angel, send me an angel, right now, right now.”

Anyone who can’t see that the Kosmos has a great sense of humor just isn’t paying attention.

As if that wasn’t synchronistic enough, went I got home I googled the song and discovered that it was a 1983 hit by an Aussie band called Real Life. Both angel and band from Australia? Hahahaha! Carl Jung rocks!

I now see why the shaman sent me alone on this journey. I needed to see the magic unfold for myself. And if he’d been along, there would have been no reason for the angelic Aussie to show up.

The following day the shaman told me he always travels with angels, and that he sent two with me yesterday. The Australian tourist was clearly one, but I’m not sure who the other was, though there are a host of candidates. Perhaps some reflection will reveal the identity. Or perhaps the other one was not manifested in physical form.

A few days before the trip the shaman had bluntly said to me, “Practice what you preach! You know what to do. You know how to raise your vibration, how to get in the vortex. Only you can do it. No one else can do it for you”.

And though he didn’t say it, I might have added “Yeah, you know far too much to ever go back. So stop wallowing in self-pity. Just tap into Source Energy, as you always do.”

Yes, that’s exactly what I needed to hear. And this magical journey to Cagayan de Oro was evidently part of the shaman’s plan to jolt me back into alignment. He knew I needed to take this trip alone.
