It’s easy to feel like you are going crazy when you come into your realization, because your perception of reality changes, and your relationship with your mind, thoughts, and emotions all change. Your own identity breaks down and how others see you begins to change and it feels as if the ground beneath was ripped apart. Then, all the excuses come up such as having mental illness in the family, your mother or father was crazy so now it has been passed down to you through the DNA. Or you took too many drugs and hurt your brain. You may have your own excuses that come up that are unique but follows the same pattern of limited explanations.
Maybe you are crazy, but let’s go deeper and take a look below the surface…
Many of the so called “symptoms” of mental illnesses such as psychosis or *schizophrenia are displayed and are common experiences during the process of enlightenment. Nothing like this has come before, so there is nothing else to compare it to. The mind can only find the answers within its own confine, and after that it will make you feel like you are losing it. Well, because you are. It’s more like you are loosening up the stronghold over your mind and thoughts, and when that occurs you fall out of what is considered the range of normalcy. You are “splitting apart” or confronted with your different aspects and opening up to all of who you are.
Psychology tells us that the mental disorder of schizophrenia is characterized by abnormal behavior, strange speech, decreased ability to understand reality, false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, hearing voices that do not exist, reduced social engagement and emotional expression, lack of motivation, anxiety, depression, and substance use disorder. The list goes on. If you look at most of these symptoms, they are commonly experienced when realizing the self and all of who you are.
Western cultures tend to look at anything they do not understand that resides outside the box of science and psychology as crazy. There is no such thing as a crazy person in indigenous cultures. So, what happened with this split in understanding? They do not have mental institutions or doctors for such a thing, but what they do is integrate these people into the community. They understand if someone is displaying themselves as different and unique from the rest of the tribe, this is their gift. It is not a curse, and something to fix, and certainly not something to suppress with drugs. If someone gets violent the community works with them and assists to bringing them to a state of well being again.
The gift can also come as being a shaman. This individual works with unseen forces which is out of the jurisdiction of western science understanding. In the indigenous communities it’s recognized, honored, acted upon, and integrated. Science is simply unable to help these people because they do not understand consciousness and energy, so they recommend endless counseling sessions and drugs to bring them back to a state of “normal”. It’s a constant loop of suppression that will never be resolved with this way of thinking, and limited understanding.
So, I would be clinically diagnosed with psychosis to the science community because I work with the unseen forces as a shaman and also someone who has come into self-realization. But the thing is, crazy or not, the techniques that I utilize work. Years of psychotherapy can be taken care of in a session or two. It took me more than a year to realize all of this. I was one of those who happened to be born to a “crazy” family, so it was easy for me to go there in my mind about it before I understood the dynamics. It’s a perfect recipe for coming into realization.
Everybody has their own unique way of expressing all of who they are. The symptoms of coming undone at the core of your being will mimic what science calls as crazy. When you go through the “dark night of the soul”, you are recognizing and integrating so many aspects and parts of yourself that you didn’t see before. You literally turn into a quaking mess. And while all of this is going on your relationships start changing, and how you lived your life. You are so busy trying to get through each hour of the day while adjusting to this new way of living.
So, can you see there is such a fine line between realization and crazy? Are people afraid of losing their minds? Yes. Why? Because they are afraid of who they are behind their mask of identity. They are holding onto life and the normal way of living, a singular identity, following the same old patterns generation after generation. This is the matrix. I used to say they are afraid of their own power, but this has nothing to do with power and everything to do with realizing how enormous they are.
When I speak about dimensions I often see people’s eyes glaze over and it is apparent this topic is either way beyond their understanding, or they simply are not interested. This depends of course on the persons consciousness whom I am addressing, but for the most part many are in the dark about what a dimension is and the nature of reality---it is not a fixed state, not even close. But we have managed to live life on Earth for a long time with a limited understanding. It’s as if we accepted things as they are and settled down. The “life is hard” philosophy and countless other limitations have been deeply embedded in our cells.
We look out at the landscape and see the ground, the trees, the sky. All of that is there, nothing has changed. The Sun comes up and goes down. There are stormy days and calm days. This is how it is here. Very structural. Right or wrong, left or right, side to side, up and down, this way or no way at all… and so on. This energetic structure is the third dimension. Very rigid and narrow. However, there are many dimensions and like the keys on the piano each has its own frequency and vibration. If there is an increase or decrease in frequency physicality responds, and like we are seeing with the changes in climate and in human consciousness, our third dimensional existence is changing, and we are no longer living strictly living within that dimension. We are teetering between several, and some of us are expanding beyond this.
A dimension is not a place way over there or away from here. All dimensions exist here and now. You can visualize an apartment building with many floors. The floors are not separate within their own building, no. They exist as one. What I find interesting is that humanity has created another dimension without realizing. Look at the amazing creation of the Internet. An inter-dimensional world created by humans. You can’t see it when you look out at the landscape. It’s not visible to wildlife, plants, animals, trees, the water…It’s man-made for man. But, like the old saying goes “as within so without, so without as within”.
The Internet is a dimension in itself. It has an energetic structural form for creativity to play itself out. You could almost say that it is an entry port connecting all dimensions, at least has the potential. Regardless, it has changed how we interact and our ability to communicate and is essentially a prehistoric form of time travel. When we stop to realize what we are all co-creating with the advent of the internet we gain a better understanding of what dimensions are, and how physicality plays itself out within an inter-dimensional reality.
Life as we know it and our understanding of ourselves and creation has been a mystery up to this point. It’s not that we won’t be surprised by things to come, but our actual comprehension of who we are--- why, how, when, where, and what will not be a mystery. Imagine the spaciousness around that notion, and what the individual will be able to accomplish within themselves and their outer world when they finally know who they are and what happened here on Earth. They will also come to find out that it was just a story, and the story is all changing.
There was a technology that came out that shifted everything. We now live in two worlds. Our outer world everyday existence intermingled with nature, and our inner world of digital transactions. How will the new human beings (AI) respond?
There are many in fear about what is happening to humanity. I’ve heard people say there is no hope for the world anymore as the content of the daily news becomes increasingly darker. They may have lost loved ones in a massive storm surge or at a marketplace behind the barrel of a gun, or simply disillusioned with the state of the world. As I watch this all unfold I cannot help but to draw the conclusion that the masses do not have the proper information and knowing to understand for themselves about what is occurring, and how could they? What is not understood is feared, and what is feared is most likely destroyed. So, let us talk about the frequency of life on Earth.
A massive fluctuation is happening with the Earths electromagnetic field frequency or what is better known as the Schumann Resonance. In layman terms, the life pulse of Earth is increasing. All life resonates to this frequency, and It’s generally at a relaxed state of 7.83Hz. However, in recent years it spiked to levels above 50Hz. This noticeably increased beginning in 2014. When the frequency fluctuates it disturbs all life on earth and strange occurrences can happen, such as the changing of migration patterns for birds and fish causing massive deaths at an alarming rate. It can also have an affect on human behavior creating elevated spiritual experiences and/or increased crime rates and chaos.
I created a presentation series in 2017 called “The Golden Age Within” where I presented it for the first time at the Pueblo Holistic Fair in Colorado. This series is for those who are trying to make sense of the senseless within the chaos of our times. It’s for those who are open and ready to have a better understanding to what is taking place globally and within themselves, and why so much chaos is happening with the weather patterns, earth changes, and humanity in general. I include the Schumann Resonance Frequency information because it is as pivotal to mention as it is about the changing of our Sun (that’s for another topic).
Everything is changing, and it’s difficult to avoid noticing. Unless you are choosing to stay asleep, which you wouldn’t be reading this if you were. The series is mainly about what is happening to humanity, the Earth, and where we are going from this point forward. There is a multidimensional reality becoming visible on the planet. Frequencies are changing and it’s causing interruptions to all walks of life, and the planet itself. Everything is becoming more and more chaotic, yet improving at the same time. How can this be possible? Let us take a closer look…
All life moves to a frequency of 7.83Hz. This is generally a relaxed state of being equivalent to Alpha wave brain activity in humans (see chart above). In recent years this frequency has been changing drastically, which I sense is coinciding with the increase in both elevated states of heightened awareness and spirituality. At the same time, there happens to be increased storm activity and human crime rate.
For instance, what sparked the creation of this article today is that there was a spike in frequency recorded at 40Hz within the last 24-hours, and there was another mass shooting reported today (this time in Thousand Oaks, California). I had also been paying attention to the unusual tornado activity that was occurring in the Southeastern part of the United States yesterday. The resonance frequency usually spikes during thunderstorm activity and the changing of weather patterns. I’m certainly not here to give a science lesson, but I mention these facts to give you a better understanding of what may be causing people to act out killing others and/or themselves, why all the protests and movements, and at the same time why there is one of the biggest spiritual movements we have ever seen on the planet is happening now. It’s all part of the inevitable changing of consciousness, and the pieces are starting to fit together.
If you notice within the brain wave chart above, the gamma waves are 30+Hz. This is a state of heightened mental activity, awareness, problem solving, fear, and transformation. It’s not difficult to see that someone who experiences this brain activity and is already mentally unstable may have a greater urge to act out their fears when the frequency is 30+Hz. Ultimately, they have too much mind chatter and they’ve literally been possessed by their own thoughts and clueless to what has been happening to them. They have gone mad. I can hear all the conspiracy theories being discussed openly right now about how the dark forces are manipulating the masses with mind control, and sending out frequencies causing people to go crazy, or producing chemicals or drugs setting off the lunatics to shoot masses of people. The paranoia is intense these days, and I wouldn’t give any time or energy unless you choose to go down that rabbit hole. You don’t need to be an intuitive such as myself to know what is ultimately occurring. There are enough scientific facts and metaphysical wisdom for us to have a proper discussion around the table.
You may or may not hear about this within the daily news in the coming months, but it doesn’t matter. It’s folks such as myself and countless others who know the truth within themselves as to what is occurring without all the fear and drama around it. We are experiencing a shift in the life pulse, and we are that pulse. May the information that I presented here shed light on the shadows currently at play or if it’s a confirmation you were looking for, the heart knows.
Do your research if you feel. keep cool, stay calm, and thanks for spending your time reading this.
May it be helpful.
You know what makes my heart sing these days?
Is seeing people treat animals with so much love. Yes, not everyone is caring for animals much like they don’t care for themselves and the world in general. However, many do, and their love is growing. Animals are designed to take on the energetics of their environment. They are much like sponges and have been intensely busy in recent years. As a collective we are changing our limited perspective about all of this. It’s wonderful and about time we do so.
It’s part of shifting awareness and is happening to all of humanity. To witness people honoring their pets and understanding truly why these critters entered their lives is a beautiful experience too. It really is about honoring the self, because the animals are a good self-reflection—without all the mind chatter. Sometimes they come to us in the form of a squirrel, butterfly, or tortoise when we are relaxing and enjoying the moment on a park bench. Nature is always speaking to us, especially our pets.
When you stop and ponder how your dog or cat, perhaps iguana, arrived into your life and not somewhere else or vice-versa, it becomes clear they have been traveling with you for lifetimes, and they always come for a reason and right on time.
They are wise guardians with much to share.
Yes, there are many homeless & abused domesticated animals, and those who are bred for monetary purposes…
…but, every animal has a story to tell, and they do this through their own little whimsical and quirkily way. Sometimes during play time, they seem to defy the laws of physics and how the body normally moves through space. I don’t know how many times I have seen my cat Lady perform ‘matrix moves” and then land on all four paws as if nothing happened. Amazing little kitty! My dog Bernie does the same thing, except it’s hilarious to see a 55-pound dog flip himself around and do it within a small space.
My partner Chris and I have always treated our pets as equals. They are not only our guardians, but our kids too—wise, wise beings of knowingness. They live long healthy, playful, and joyful lives. After it’s all said and done they know we know they will remain around us. There is no such thing as death and It’s all in the awareness.
It just feels good to care and be cared for by such lovely beings and have this physical experience together. It’s a tango, and a mutual act of love. When you multiple this by millions of these experiences you can see how grand the impact has on the entire web of life.
Animals are tuned-in energetic vortexes. They keep us company when we need a break from the human environment and remind us of our own divinity and pureness. They give us love and comfort when no one else is around. Simple, playful, and knowing. They show us patience and tell us to dance or laugh when we get too serious. They give us a space to cry when we need to let go of the world. They watch us and wonder why we frequently jump down “rabbit holes” …Ha!
They promise us that we are free, multidimensional, timeless, beings of great joy, like themselves. And so, we honor them by reflecting this back with the same love, patience, and adoration they have for us. What a pleasure and honor it is.
So, if you are reading this and you are one of the lovely humans respecting and honoring the animals, bless your heart, thank you, and keep going!
Everything Is Happening Right Now:
Utilizing Our Senses w/Intention and Attention to
Gain Cosmic Understanding of Ourselves and Creation
It may be that time of year again, whatever time of year you are reading this from, but you have never experienced this moment before.
Not like this.
In any given moment you are constantly changing. Your thoughts, emotions, and perhaps body pain are shifting. Each moment is unique and can never be experienced the same way.
This gradual changing movement is ever present.
Simple awareness of this brings an understanding that everything is happening right now.
No matter what time of year it is within this solar cycle, cosmically it is always the present moment.
You are here existing within the endless possibilities and ways of experiencing life and perceiving reality.
From an energetically neutral standpoint, it’s amazing to see that reality can be experienced however the perceiver wants it to be. Any action requires energy that is activated by an intention.
The intention may be positive or negative, depending upon the desired experience.
The human has five senses in which to play out their existence. When the full potential of each sense is realized it can act as a gateway to countless other senses, dimensions, and realities.
Most people live within an objective or agreed upon reality and spend their time and mental energy within a first attention state of mind. This means they are very good at every day tasks, every day general living and business duties.
However, when it comes to perceiving other types of events, unusual happenings, or what is considered spiritual, day to day distractions may obstruct a second attention viewpoint. This is the state of mind where one can see the symmetry and synergy of life at play.
This is an intuitive space where one can tune into their psychic abilities and notice coincidences and synchronicities. This is where creativity plays itself out.
What lies beyond the peripheral, underneath, or between the seams of ordinary reality?
My passion is to see with all my senses and what I can gather from perceiving with first and second attention. What is happening behind the scenes is truly what sets up the scenes to happen, and this is what interests me the most.
So, everything is happening right now…
all of creation, past, present, future, and simultaneous timelines.
We are doing this at any given moment. It’s not something to reach for or to become.
We are that, ALL that is and we can become conscious participants in any given moment.
For instance, everyone dreams every night whether aware of it or not. Some of the vistas experienced are much different than everyday living, and the dimensional structures of these places defy modern physics and what we know reality to be.
Another way to consciously participate is to Shamanic Journey or what is known as a Dream Walk or Guided Imagery. All those other worlds and endless possible realms exist right now in this moment and can be accessed with intention and lightness of heart.
A Shaman understands this and is known as the one who knows and sees with their strong eye beyond the veil of everyday life. They walk between worlds and bring back vital information for the community, heal sickness, assist in transitional processes such as birth and death, and possess countless other psychic abilities depending upon their specialty.
They work side by side with their loving compassionate aspects or guides, and many other beings of light for the benefit of life everywhere. Everyone has the capability to Shamanic Journey, just like everyone dreams at night. However, not everyone has the same way of experiencing it.
Some people are visual and see images within their minds eye, whereas others may have their strengths within the auditory sense. Or, some people may experience a combination of senses.
But, not everyone has a desire or passion to be a Shaman and dedicate their life to that type of work. They may do it occasionally for themselves, or some loved ones, but do not take it any further than that.
For others, it is an expression, a way of being, and a job all at the same time.
In any case, we can discover there are endless possibilities and ways of experiencing all of creation by setting an intention, utilizing the five senses, and strengthening our second attention with our first attention. This can be done now in this present moment where everything is happening.
Anything can be experienced in any given moment.
Creation is a big place and eternity is a long time. ;-)
Now, Journey on!
Someone recently commented to me that if a person claims they are a Master, they truly are not a Master. And the reasoning they say behind it is simple. If one says it about themselves that is like the old saying ‘if you claim to be a wise man than you truly don’t know’ something along the lines like that. However, creation expanded to a degree still unknown to the common person. Humanity is still acted out the old energies of “you can’t do this, or you can’t say that because it’s all ego if you do’ and on and on this goes. I hate to burst some people’s bubbles (or maybe I do a little ), but creation went from 2 (duality) to 4 (the quad) (if you need more explanations on this send me a private message), and with this expansion the Master is now working in cohesion with their human aspects. And as of late, we are experiencing such a degree of this that, that’s even gone topsy turvy. The ‘soul voice’ or Master is now on the front lines and the human is taking a back seat. Not a back seat as in being silenced or shunned, but finally cooperating with it’s divinity. Finally going full strait ahead with all it’s humanness with no denial what so ever. Finally acknowledging ones own humanity with all the “imperfections” annoyances, pains, lacks, never getting it right, and so on. Any questions?
Many years ago my lovely teacher, Jim Self of Mastering Alchemy said the above statement when I was moving into becoming a “healer” and creating an entire business out of it. There is no such thing as a healer in the future? Huh? So, if you could imagine when he said those words the unknown that was stirred from inside myself and all kinds of feelings, and some fear too. (Thank you for reading on…)
So, if this is the case why am I spending all my precious time enhancing my healing practice if there is no future for this? I thoroughly understand it is helping others right now, (but)…Before I could even finish the question a voice came from inside and said, “Keep going”.
The shift in consciousness is moving things fast, and yes people are beginning to wake up and have their own personal self-realizations (or enlightenment), and once this realization occurs we begin to heal from the inside out. (Hold your hand out and the apple will appear). It’s as simple as a shift in perception. However, there will be many who still need your lightness of heart and healing hands for many decades to come, that too is shifting, but for now… Many will still need you.
This is what it means to be on “The Bridge” between the old world and the new world. And it’s changing faster than the speed of light!
As I set my gaze on the Western horizon I watch as another beautiful day comes to an end. The sky darkens. Clouds change colors with the setting of the Sun and stars appear as speckles of glitter. I turn my head to the Eastern horizon in anticipation of Harvest Moon rise. The moment moves with a few eye blinks and the sky is now dark blue. I look directly above me and notice what looks like a cloud wisp streaking across the sky from north to south, but is none other than one of the arms of the Milky Way Galaxy. I notice a triangular star formation and all the constellations are then before my eyes. But still, no Moon rise. The night becomes quietly still with occasional sounds of crickets or the flight of an owl. I sit, breathe, and wait. My thoughts come and go, but my eyes are still set to the Eastern horizon. Several moments pass and a light appears. Something that is familiar, unlike a street lamp and more like a fire light. The moment of anticipation in seeing the first light of Moon rise on the last day of summer is similar to the Forth of July fireworks! This is time I take to be humble and quiet and to give thanks for all that I have received since Summer Solstice; And to send out my prayers of healing for everything, everybody, including myself.
There is something about the light of Harvest Moon, as it brilliantly glows orange and red. She calls attention to herself and mesmerizes all who catch a glimpse. There is magic in the air as I watch her climb high above the horizon. There are no thoughts. No where to go. No urge to be somewhere. Just simply with myself and the Moon. It’s always in the quiet moments when the answers come; when true insights are clear and strong. It is also these moments when I strongly realize my ancestors are with me.
Sitting by the Moon is as real as it gets. And then it dawns on me that I am happening to life. And this is real. And then another realization comes and I realize none of this is real… and then realization after realization. Things are certainly not what they seem. All of this unfolds sitting by the Moon; very subtle like a candle light, strong. Now I understand what Jack Kerouac meant when he wrote about the Moon… “In some cases the moon is you, in any case the Moon.”
When we are born the first element we are introduced to is water. In The womb we are protected by water. When it is time for us to leave the womb, the next element introduced is air. This is when we take our first breath. We then grow into our Earth form with the energy of fire to move us through life. All four elements, water, air, earth, and fire remain with us throughout life and leave one by one before we make our transition out of the Earth plane.
The four elements make up life as we know it. Mankind has fallen away from the natural world and has lost the connection to Spirit (creator), and has taken the position of creator itself, without the respect for the rest of creation. This play of false power without love has created an imbalance of the four elements, not only within Man, but all of life here on Earth. We did not create the web. We are merely threads in it, and whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves. This is the collective consciousness. Since we can affect the collective with our thoughts and actions, there is also a reciprocal process with everything else.
Water is our emotions. Air is our thoughts. Earth is our physical body. Fire is our energy. What element(s) is out of balance within you?
Think about the region where you live. What element(s) is prominent? I live in Colorado. It’s usually a dry arid region, so fire is one of the prominent elements here. Fire is the only element that cannot be polluted. It purifies everything that it touches. Last year was the beginning of the purification process for this region. And as of a few days ago, it has risen to purify once again. This is what fire does. It cannot be anything else. And to ask or wish for another element to come by and interrupt the process would be a dishonor. All good things happen in all good time. It’s all about timing and if the Earth needs to cleanse herself we must come to understand her needs and honor that. Let Fire do what it does. And TRUST that the rains will come.
If there is a raging hurricane happening around you, sit with a cup of water and pray to it. Decree that what is in for the greatest good. And your greatest good, what yours is may be completely different. So, with all good intention, set your words for the greatest good of all. If there is a tornado happening around you, sit and listen to each in breath and out breath. Pray to your breath and thank it for giving you life. If there is an earthquake happening around you, stay calm, breathe and listen to your heartbeat. Connect your heartbeat with the heartbeat of the Earth and the Sun. It works. If there is a fire happening around you, sit with a candle and pray to fire. Thank it for purifying what needed to be cleansed. Everything is alive. We can have relationships and conversations with the four elements anytime we choose. They will teach us everything that we are lacking to understand.
Most of us know that things are rapidly changing on so many levels, but where we hold our attention will bring understanding more into clarity. We were taught that the Earth is here for our disposal. We generally do not pay attention to the elements until we need them. We are now in a different playing field here on Earth. We can no longer ignore life. Whatever element is out of balance in your region is exactly what kind of weather changes will be expected. We pray for well being, but at the same time we must be humble. Nature has let us live our lives out this far, as a return in kindness we must do the same for her. Let it be.
May your own life continue to expand into a loving compassionate mode of being for yourself and all of life, everywhere.

I was listening to the local classical music station this morning and the announcer came on as always to give a weather update. Temperatures will be dropping significantly tonight and another snow storm is on its way. He then gave a little bit of his thoughts and said, “winter will just not let go this year”. His thought inspired this entry.
It is a natural way to react when you are tired of winter and you just want spring to come on. Complaining does not make the winter blues go away, but somehow it seems to be a comfort at times. We have all done it and many still do continue to complain their lives away. Are we not all searching for that perfect day? That perfect moment when everything just seems to flow? When water flows it follows the path of least resistance. What we resist- persists. If the sun continued to shine day after day without the loving support of the rain, nothing would grow.
We are currently in a global water crisis. When we understand this, it becomes urgent to go forward from this moment and humbly give thanks for the water available to consume today. And, for the water that is coming in other forms, such as snow, hail, or rain. When we give as much as we receive, magic happens. We don’t know all the answers. Science will continue and try to figure out what is happening down here on Earth, but there is something deep inside every one of us that is stirring like a super storm. We intuitively know what is happening at the deepest level of our being. How can we not? Is not everything interconnected? Are we not merely microorganisms on this planet? We have fallen out of balance with the rest of nature and now something is stirring inside.
We must be like a log in the river and flow with the weather changes. Again, what we resist-persists. And so within our own lives, when we experience a shift in our weather we must flow with it or choose suffering. It’s always a choice. Even on a cloudy day the sun is shining!
I would like to conclude with this inspiring story of Buddha’s last words…
When Buddha was on his death bed he noticed his young disciple Ananda was weeping.
'Why are you weeping, Ananda?' he asked.
'Because the light of the world is about to be extinguished and we will be in darkness.'
The Buddha summoned up all his remaining energy and spoke what were to be his final words on earth:
'Ananda, be a light unto yourself.'
It was not too long after Buddha’s passing Ananda reached enlightenment. May your own light continue to shine through the rain, drought, wind, or snow.
