Him (dream journal)

This dream took place late summer early fall of 2008.  I was walking through this beautiful forest, light scintillating through the trees creating prisms all around me chirping birds,  buzzing bees, then I see this being.  What was it I was seeing?  

He was half man half stag,   Antlers on his head walking leisurely appeared to be enjoying nature’s beauty.  

Something overcame me and quite suddenly I found myself jumping high into the air without a care.  Landed softly on his back, he turned to face me startled, but amused.  “How did you do that?’ He asked quizzically.   I responded with something like, “I don’t know, I just did.”

As he held my gaze I realized, I felt something…. 

He had the most beautiful face that still haunts me to this day, that image in my head will never go away.  This sincerity that spoke through eyes so blue and a soft and loving and ancient temperance.  There was an ethereal golden quality to him.  And a sort of sadness that left me breathless.

He and I became close friends, words spoken…what were they again?

He lead me to a clearing in the trees…there in the middle of the forest was this chain link fence, tall and high he asked me if I could jump over this wall.

He didn’t say why, I didn’t even try.

I saw a hole in the bottom and said I’d go under it instead, less work was the thought in my head.  Perhaps that was foolish. 

As I made it to the other side I saw around me a grayness instead of trees and more of these deer like beings.  There was an older faun with a dark beard and a sort of stern countenance.  

“You should have jumped over the fence.” 

That’s when my eyes flew open.  That startling loving face lingering, I was left pondering questioning wondering what I’d just seen.

The Crow Knows

image

I’m feeling compelled to write a post about crows…as something rather strange just happened.

I’ve noticed crow coming up in my experience a lot lately.   Just earlier today I was talking with a friend about this crow painting I recently finished, pictured on the left.   Soon after that, I was finishing up the poem below and when I got to the line “synchronicities” a crow cawed loudly five or six times right outside my window,  startling me from my writing reverie.

Point made universe.  I’m paying attention.    I decided to take a closer look at what crow represents.

Crow is an often misaligned animal.  Associated with darkness and fear by many people, I too have had mixed feelings of fascination and apprehension with this ebony avian in the past.  While crow can be intimidating,  I do believe this bird is beautiful and a great helper and teacher.  Crow is able to cross both sides of the veil, he can teach us how to work with our darkness instead of against it.  Crow is associated with many things, life and death, change, and the void; just to name a few.  Here’s a great article on the spiritual side of crow.

That said, I’d like to make a formal apology to crow nation right now; in a previous post, I shared a song I wrote a while back, where I compared big business and banks to crows… it’s insulting to the bird to compare them with big business and the mess that we have made for ourselves.  I don’t believe the crow stands for that kind of…”darkness” I’m sorry crow.  😦

Now that I’ve gotten to know you better I see things more clearly.  The void where you reside holds all color and all possibility.   When you look closely at a crow feather you can see there are lots of blues and greens and hues to be seen.  Change is not to be feared.

Below is the poem I mentioned above, everything written here is true and these events actually happened to me, blows my mind that I’m writing about all these life and death situations, and I’m writing about faith, and suddenly all this business with the crow comes up.

Universe, you are weird and wonderful, I love you and I am full of gratitude.  We’re gonna call this one, “The Crow Knows”

I’m lucky to be alive and it’s a miracle I’ve survived.

Just short of two years old,
Falling down two stories off the ground.
On to the concrete below.
The blow
Fractures on my head.
But I’m not dead.
The CT from what they could see,
showed no signs of brain injury.

I’m lucky to be alive and it’s a miracle I’ve survived.
I’ve found there’s grace in the worst situations…
There are blessings in our tribulations.

Next brush with mortality came to me when I was 4 or 5
A fascination with a mud-wasp hive.
I kept poking, even after mom’s warning
shouldn’t have been surprised to see a sinister swarm of wasps chasing me.

Mom scooped up me under her arm,
and carried me away from harm,
For hours, we listened to eerie sound
of the wasps all around,
crashing into the walls of our sanctuary
Grandpa’s old RV.

We could see wasps still clinging to the shirt my mom had to fling
I didn’t get a single sting.

I’m lucky to be alive and it’s a miracle I’ve survived.
I’ve found there’s grace in the worst situations…
There are blessings in your tribulations.

5th Grade New school. I’m laying face down on the playground.
Bell’s ringing, no one’s around.
I didn’t like that snapping sound I heard when
the bullies pushed me to the ground.
I guess I had it coming I chased them with a stick.
Though I’m pretty sure they were also being dicks.

Bright side of the story, one girl who said sorry, became like family.

I got my brace off just in time for summer,
wouldn’t you know it was really a bummer
when suddenly I fell out of a tree
And again my bones snapped under me.
Sometime’s life’s just bitchy,
but I’m sure it’s strengthened me.

I’m lucky to be alive and it’s a miracle I’ve survived.
I’ve found there’s grace in the worst situations…
There are blessings in your tribulations.

Fast forward to 15 on the bus home my head’s feeling mean.
my brain exploding with pain.
two taps to my spine
I’m losing my mind
in the hospital with meningitis
I don’t know how i got this
Trying to fill out this living will while the Vicodin is making me ill.
terrified inside cuz last week, a class-mate died!
That could have been me.
Why did it happen to him?
They didn’t catch it in time
and the misdiagnoses was a crime.
That probably saved my life.
When my parents helped me through the door,
they knew what to look for.

I’m lucky to be alive and it’s a miracle I’ve survived.
I’ve found there’s grace in the worst situations…
There are blessings in our tribulations.

10 years later give or take,
My medical doctor made a mistake.
Told me not to whine
the cyst on my ovary would be just fine,
He said, wait and see, let it be.

Some time passed and suddenly
I was puking from the pain in the ER lobby.
Emergency Surgery where they found I flipped my ovary and it died inside of me.

I’m lucky to be alive and it’s a miracle I’ve survived.
I’ve found there’s grace in the worst situations…
There are blessings in our tribulations.

Why god do you see it fit to test me?
I believe
I believe
That there must be some light in spite of all this darkness
I believe
I believe
That my pain hasn’t been worthless.

I accept
I accept
the role I played in the story of my life.
the times when I created my strife.

I love
I love
I won’t blame them
I won’t be a victim.

I listen
I listen
To the wisdom you provide,
The subtle signs and synchronicities,
The crow of the caw who seriously just crowed at me as I finished writing the word “synchronicities”.

Mind Blown.
Universe You Own.

I won’t hide in my fear,
Even when my path is dark and unclear.
I won’t get bitter,
I’ll get better.
I’ll count my blessings,
And be grateful for the lessons.

Gratitude.

The Path of the Fool

In the tarot, the fool is portrayed as a young man, nonchalantly walking off the edge of a cliff.  He’s stepping off blissfully ignorant of the horrible peril that awaits him. To most people this image would indeed seem foolish and full of folly, the fool would at best serve as an example of what not to do!

But what if there was something more behind the smile on the fools seemingly ignorant face, what if the fool actually holds sacred knowledge and wisdom?  In my opinion, that smile is both joyful and knowing.

We can keep this archetype in mind when we think of the many worlds theory in quantum mechanics, where all the different possibilities are sort of stacked upon each other, happening simultaneously, it reverses the severity of the impact of knowing that endless possibilities exist at the bottom of the cliff.

In this great video below we can see the many worlds theory demonstrated with Mario world.  The player edited hundreds of attempts together to form a long continuous stream of play and we can see all the different possibilities that spin off as Mario makes his way through the game.

In some of those realities, we might  Mario jump spin off a cliff and from the perspective of the character it’s over. Boom,

Boom, splat and  Yoshi is looking at mario like he’s an idiot.  What a fool!   Sometimes Yoshi will even run away and ironically end up running off a cliff himself.   Makes you wonder about the subtle differences between running and jumping but that’s another article!

So from the perspective of that particular “character in time”, the game is over.  However, from the perspective of the player we just continue from where we left off on the map or we respawn at our last save point and it’s no big deal, just a fun way to pass the time and we still get experience.

If we’re looking at this journey from another “angel” 😉  we can use sacred geometry to describe the movements and motivation of the fool and the structure of the game itself.   The fool knows something we don’t.  While most of us are wrapped up in duality and fighting the bad and grasping for the good, I think the fool is looking at something else entirely.  He’s looking at the movement between these two opposing forces.

Flower-of-Life-61circlesThis is the flower of life, this geometry is said to illustrate the basic structure of reality and it contains within it’s structure infinite amounts of information.

It is an incredibly interesting pattern, containing the five plutonic solids, it is a fractal, each six-pointed star in the pattern can be replicated to infinity in both directions.   It is also represented as a hologram when you change one iteration the whole will reflect that change.

Each star or iteration in the fractal can be seen as a finite boundary that contains infinite information (possibilities).  How that information moves through the fractal determines the experience.  The shape itself is polarized reflecting both contraction and expansion.

While our direct physical experience or perspective is limited to a single point in this infinite structure, we do have the ability to experience infinity with the structure itself (ourselves).

While we can’t experience it in a logical way, we have the knowledge that this pattern can exist past our own individual boundaries.   Duality is just a dance between expansion and contraction, and we can experience infinity by going inward.  This is a blessing when we are facing hard times and having difficulty seeing what direction we need to take or if we are trying to find comfort.

Our connection to source, god, spirit, infinity whatever you want to call it  is found in that infinity, modern science is closer to explaining what the ancients always knew, the fundamental structure of reality is dependent upon the void.

The Yin Yang, beginning and the end, dark and light, all contrast rolled into one space.   It the place that exists past time where the laws of physics break down and everything is possible.  It is the place of love.

Only our science now calls it the quantum vacuum.  In Eastern mysticism, the void is everything and nothing all at once, showing us that the dualistic reality we experience is relative in nature.

Take away one piece and the whole thing changes.  Modern science shows us the truth in this philosophy when we observe particles springing into and out of existence in a vacuum and when we measure the energy potential of the vacuum to discover that it is infinite!   How can something that is a vacuum have infinite energy…unless the vacuum is created by the lack of contrast and duality.

Read the book The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra for a very well presented argument on how modern science and eastern mysticism mirror each other in a profound and eerie way.  For more information on sacred geometry and the structure of the vacuum check out Nassim Haramein’s brilliant documentary “Black Whole

The fools ignorant/knowing smile might be inspired by the knowledge that all his options are happening all at once, all he has to do is resonate with the right one.

The fool is ultimately an archetype of faith and gratitude,  honoring the bigger picture and making us question our perspective,  assumptions and judgements.

Psychic Stuff: Fun with Pets.

Ever want to see if your pets can pick up on psychic vibes?   Try this out and tell me what happens. 😉

Find your pet, now focus on their face and start thinking about food.  Be very detailed, don’t just think visually.  Incorporate how the pet-food smells, the sound of the cat-food hitting the dish, the rattling of the bag, imagine your pet eating it.

I did this just a moment ago, I was focusing on my cat Lyra, who looked interested but,  it was my cat Tesla (who’s been with me longer) who came RUNNING up to me like his butt was on fire, and then he jumped up on the counter and reached up with his paw and started tapping my shoulder.  It was a-freaking-dorable!

And very interesting…

It also got me thinking that this might be a good way to practice broadcasting thoughts/feelings/intentions or refining them to one individual.  To elaborate on this idea, my focus was on Lyra, but it was Tesla who reacted, this leads me to wonder if it was more of a broadcast thing that all the animals could pick up on.

Just some food for thought.  😉

How Biophotons Show That We Are Made Of Light. | Spirit Science

(Note*   This post was originally written for a website called spirit science, back when I worked with them briefly.)

biophoton or Ultra-weak Photon Emission, (UPE) is a kind of light particle that is emitted by all living things. Though it exists in the visible and ultraviolet spectrum, in order for us to see it, our eyes would have to be about 1,000 times more sensitive.

While we can’t see them with our eyes alone, technology has given us a glimpse and what it’s shown us may have a profound impact on us all.

Biophotons were first thought to be merely the byproduct of metabolic chemical reactions. That idea is being challenged with an exciting theory that claims biophotons have a much larger role to play when it comes to our physiology and quite possibly our consciousness as well.

Experiments are showing that biophotons (UPEs) can be captured and stored inside of cells and can even travel through our nervous system; suggesting that biophotons might provide a way for cells to transfer energy and communicate information. It’s has also been suggested that UPEs might even have properties which help us to visualize images.

This makes sense, considering how we create computers.  All computers are is silicon crystal chips which we pass light through to relay 0′s and 1′s. (Light on, Light Off). The first computer was literally built with a lightbulb and these punch-cards which had holes in them, which is how we would program computers.

Today, our computers are far more advanced, and yet at the core, the electrical information we are passing through computers today is still a form of light. Now our sciences are revealing humans work the same way, and Light carries information through our brain, nervous system, and even our DNA.

C9547C97-AD78-415E-998B-0E0BBBCA0BA8Yep! Scientists are finding that our DNA is a strong source of UPEs, it communicates with and is created from light itself! It’s been observed that DNA produces extremely high biophoton emissions and has excimer laser-like properties. Excimer lasers (or exciplex lasers) are special lasers consisting pseudo-molecules that only exist in a highly excited state and emit light in the ultraviolet range.

If that wasn’t cool enough already, scientists have also discovered that not only do we emit light, we have the ability to effect it with our thoughts alone. In a recent study, participants were placed in a darkened room and asked to visualize a bright light. When they did this, they were able to increase their levels of biophoton emissions significantly, showing that our intentions have an influence on light itself!

In conclusion, Light appears to be a fundamental part of our being. It’s hard-coded into our very bodies to function directly with, and through – light. On top of that, the fact that we can affect light with our intentions alone… outstanding! It would appear those new age hippies are right when they say we are all beings of light.

Druids and Permaculture

Something that draws me to permaculture is the way it evokes a very similar feeling to when I’m studying Druidry and nature based practices, some of the ideas and beliefs have striking parallels. I guess it’s not really too surprising, many permaculture designs and concepts are actually thousands of years old and were adopted from indigenous practices around the world.

I see the downright amazing things people are doing today (I’ll share a few in a moment), the way they are so connected with the land and the reverence they show for mother nature and I wonder what it must have been like before our “so-called modern world” took over with all its distractions.

Imagine the things the ancients must have observed!

It’s pretty safe to say the Druids and ancient Celts were a lot closer to nature than we are today.  Because so many of their traditions were passed down orally, we don’t know all that much about them.  What little we do know, is that they had a strong reverence for observation and wisdom.

It’s been said that a person would have to spend 20 years in training to become a druid.  Each year they would have to devote to a single tree, observing it over the course of the seasons.  Druids were said to have incredible command over the elements.  I have my suspicions that a Druids power came not from commanding nature, it came from understanding her.

(Druid means “Oak-Wise” by the way)

I see in permaculture this same reverence for observation, and similar downright amazing abilities.

They say you should find a “sit spot” a place you visit every day and observe the world around you.  Be still and take in all the sights, sounds, smells, and sensations that come to you and observe, relax and sorta melt into your environment.

After about 15 minutes the birds and animals you disturbed while getting to your sit spot will come back out and do their thing.  Some people can get wild birds to eat directly from their hands by returning to the same place every day and showing the animals they are not a threat.

You can learn basic bird language which will tell you a great deal about what is happening in your environment.  With patience and observation, you’ll be able to detect people and creatures who might be approaching just out of eye and earshot, by discerning the different calls from the birds.

You’ll find that they might have a specific call for the cat, and another for the dog.  You’ll be able to tell when a predator is approaching like a hawk, one of the best thing to listen for is silence.   You can also follow bird movement.  Is something stirring up large groups of birds?

Perhaps there is a disturbance in the force.

It doesn’t work as well with birds of prey like hawks and eagles, it’s also best to avoid using Corvids like crows and ravens.   The crow is known as a trickster in many indigenous cultures around the world for good reason; it is a great mimic and will often give you “false data”.

I can only imagine the wild and wonderful kind of things Druids must have learned from the birds and trees ages ago, before we drowned out their voices with machines and cars and electronics…

I prefer to end this blog on a positive note.  I think the birds and the trees are still talking to us.  There are people around today who are helping to restore that connection with the natural world.   I want to share something beautiful I found last year, it’s a perfect example of modern-day Druidry.

A professional photographer, Mark Hirsch visited an ancient Burr Oak in Wisconsin every day over the course of an entire year and photographed his journey with the tree over the seasons.   The pictures are absolutely breathtaking, I’m a sucker for Oaks.  Check it out!

Random Art Post and Chakras

I was going to do a post on Chakras this week, but Spirit Science beat me to it and did a damn good job!  So instead, I’m going to share what Jordan wrote on the subject.  Click the link to check it out. 😀
Working with Chakras | Spirit Science.

As an added bonus, I’ve decided to share my series of Chakra paintings too.  I found that painting each Chakra was a fun and creative way to meditate on them and gain new insight and perspective on my own energy and things I can heal.

I highly recommend everyone try it out for themselves, it’s a lot of fun, and when you’re done, BOOM, you have a painting series to hang on the wall.

Some of the symbols in the paintings are easier to see than others, I used a metallic-gold acrylic paint, so they catch the light differently.  The other painting in this picture is one of my own as well, it’s a peacock under a lilac bush.

Reiki Introduction

I decided it would be fun to change it up a little bit and do a post on Reiki.  I’ve been meaning to write about this for a while, it is one of my favorite topics.  In fact, I’d say it’s more than just a topic, it’s a way of looking at life that is all about perspective and connection to Spirit.

Reiki is commonly known as an alternative form of healing that focuses and channels divine energy which heals and restores a person to their original state of balance and perfection.  Thinking about Reiki keep in mind the idea that everything is energy, you me, that rock, the tree,  it’s all the same energy, just expressed in different ways.

This collective energy, the conscious sum of all infinite possibilities and expressions is what I think of as God or Spirit.  This is the force that Reiki practitioners channel when they are doing healing sessions.  We don’t think of ourselves as the ones doing the healing, rather it is this energy which is what restores people to their natural state of balance, we act as conduits for it.  There is a saying in Reiki, “When ego goes, Reiki flows.”

150px-Mikaousui Reiki has its roots in Japan, with a man named  Dr. Mikao Usui.  The story I was told is that Usui was doing a fasting meditation which lasted 21 days.  Usui was about to give up on the whole thing when on the 21st day he received from the Universe an attunement and what we now know as Reiki.

I’ve also heard it told that he found a sort of “formula” for Reiki when studying old Buddhist writings during his fast at the temple, this formula was the focus of his meditation which lead to his awakening on the mountain.   It is said that during this “attunement” he saw a bright light and reached out to it, when he did he received the knowledge of Reiki.

They say a series of small miracles followed this event.  The first miracle was that he was able to eat a full meal right away after 21 days of fasting.  The next miracles followed as he made his way back down the mountain; he found he could heal people and eventually started teaching Reiki to others, they in turn brought it to the west and Reiki has grown to become a world-wide and varied tradition.

Today there are many different forms of Reiki which have branched off from the original ideas taught by Usui.  These are normally divided into two large branches, traditional Japanese Reiki, and Western Reiki.  From these two main branches have come many different Reiki practices developed by people over the years, such as Kundalini Reiki and so on.

My personal opinion of Reiki is that anyone can practice it, by virtue of existing you are a part of Spirit and therefore you can access Reiki.  However, I do believe that attunements make that process easier by effecting your subconscious and giving you focus.  Plus, having gone through attunements myself, I can tell you it’s a very transforming process worth the experience.

When you are being attuned, you can literally feel the energy flowing in the form of intense warmth, tingling, even symbols, images and color will flash through your mind, these sensations also occur when you are channeling Reiki for healing.

When learning Reiki, a person goes normally through a series of 3 attunements or levels. A cleansing period follows each attunement and lasts 21 days.  It is during this time old energies and issues are brought to the surface and released while the body and spirit goes through a sort of “detox” which opens you up to being able to channel higher amounts of this spiritual energy.  Think of it like plumbing, water in a pipe flows better when there isn’t stuff blocking it.

It is recommended during these times to abstain from eating meat and processed foods and consuming drugs like caffeine and nicotine.  You will also be advised to drink plenty of water and rest.  These practices will help make the cleanse an easier process to go through.

Simboli_Takata_bianco12KWhen you first become attuned in Reiki 1,  you are opened up to  channel divine energy and heal yourself and others.   You learn a series of hand placements along the body, as well as the power symbol for Reiki, which is called “Choku Rei”.

While I am trained to use traditional western hand positions, I find that I prefer to use the traditional Japanese method of intuitive hand placements and going where my instincts tell me the energy is needed.

The second attunement for Reiki allows you to receive even greater amounts of energy, and you are given two more symbols to work with.  The first is called “Sei He Ki”, it is used for mental and emotional balance and healing.  The second symbol you receive is called “Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen” and it allows you to connect with and heal people regardless of time and distance. 

The final level of Reiki allows you to teach and attune other people to Reiki Energy.  You are given the master symbol “Dae Ko Myo”, it is at this point you are considered a Reiki Master/Teacher.   The master level is sometimes split up into two separate attunements, depending on who you learn it from and what tradition that person follows.

Most Reiki practitioners follow a lineage of teachers, and the information is passed along from teacher to student.  My lineage is with Usui Reiki where I have reached level 2, and Kundalini Reiki where I have reached master/teacher level and can attune others.  When you are attuned your teacher will give you a certificate which will state your lineage and what tradition you are following.

Once you are attuned to Reiki, you’ll find that it often flows on its own.  For example if you are in the vicinity of a person who is in need of healing, you may notice your hands start to get really hot and tingly and you can feel the energy flowing out of them.  People have also noticed this sensation with their eyes and other parts of the body, the Reiki flows on its own much of the time and goes where it is needed most.

I would like to wrap this post up with one of my favorite aspects of Reiki, one of the most important next to recognizing the divinity of all things is the importance of the moment.

Reiki practitioners also traditionally live by what is called the 5 Reiki Precepts or Principles.  They are as follows:

Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will not be angry.
Just for today, I am thankful for my many blessings,
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I am kind to all living things.

I love these principles because I feel they do a great job of showing us that the moment is the most important thing, today is what matters, and today I will be the best person possible and let spirit shine through me.

My next post on the subject of Reiki will talk about the symbols more in-depth, and give more information about working with energy and Reiki and incorporating it into your daily life.  (It has many applications!)

Thanks for reading, Namaste!

 

The Future Is Happening.

Today we’re going to go on an impromptu little stream of consciousness style blogging journey because that’s fun sometimes.  🙂       This is a continuation of my post on looking at the bright side.  I wasn’t going to publish this today, I changed my mind after seeing an inspiring post on Facebook from an awesome lady named Kirsten: 

Hello my friends,
Today is a great day for talking about Love, Compassion, and what we want to see in the world. What would it feel like to have today be the day that we begin loving everyone unconditionally? What if just with a few of us starting this wave it spread like wild fire and more people loved everyone unconditionally too?

Remember that today doesn’t have to be just about couples. It can be so much more than that.

I challenge you to project your divine heart chakra energy today and send love to everyone you see without judgement & I will do the same.

I love you guys, Thank you for being a part of the change!
You are the One,
Namaste.

Seeing that inspired me to finish this blog post.  Looking on the bright side is (for me) essentially recognizing and honoring that connection we share with all things.  What would the future look like if we all started to honor that connection?  What would it look like if we were finally able to move past our differences and into one-ness?  Let’s go on a journey and find out…

Alrighty!  Here we are at an unspecified point in the future!  How the world has changed!

Looking around me I see a lush green paradise, bursting with vitality and abundance.   I see people and they look happy, engaged with each other.  I see animals living alongside these people in peace and thriving.  The air smells fresh, invigorating, the crystalline rivers, lakes and oceans look clean and I can see an abundance of fish and other animals swimming in their waters.   Flying over the planet I see the deserts of my time have been replaced with green forest.  How did the world transform into this Eden I see before me?

It was discovered some time ago that, there exists a force, a conscious energy that permeates all things.  When this force was finally recognized and accepted, everything changed.  The change happened slowly at first, one person at a time, until a sort of critical mass was reached and the effect cascaded across the planet; evolving every aspect of our lives.

People started to look at the myriad of different religious, spiritual and philosophical teachings from a mature perspective of oneness.  Acknowledgement and celebration of our shared connection became the focus.  Religious teachings became enriching, instead of divisive.  We forgave ourselves and each other for all the trouble we had caused by chasing dogma and feeding egos and we decided to embrace a future that was all about connection and love.

This sense of wholeness and connection drifted into many areas of life, we started to see that wholeness reflected not only in our relationships to each other but also to the planet and all of the creatures and life it contains.  This change of understanding was reflected in the way we lived, worked, the way we communicated, and the goals we set for ourselves.   In tandem with the sweeping evolution of consciousness, we experienced an evolution in technology, medicine,  community, agriculture, industry and pretty much every other area of life.

When this transition into one-ness first started to happen in the 21st century, before the wide-spread global reforms changed the planet completely, people likened it to star trek.  The discovery of the field lead to massive breakthroughs in science.  These breakthroughs lead to the creation of many devices that mimicked technology found in the star trek series.  Some went so far as to say that star-trek and other sci-fi movies were predicting the future when they were first aired so many years ago.  Cellphones and tablets mimicked the communicator and the tricorder by allowing people to communicate instantly over vast distances and receive instant information on any subject.

Advances in quantum mechanics laid down the groundwork necessary to create other items featured on the show such as replicators, warp drives, holodecks and more.  These technologies essentially freed people and the earth from many of the problems that we faced so long ago. As wonderful as all these things were, the future had even more incredible things in store.

The harsh angular “modern” world of white walls and steel no longer held the same appeal for us.  Even our ideas of what technology should look like changed.  We realize now that the best place to turn for inspiration for what progress looks like is mother nature.  She’s been at it much longer than we have, we also realized the damage we had done previously and took measures to reverse it.

A massive undertaking was started to re-forest the earth, and the trees that were planted then have long since matured into vast and thriving, beautifully abundant forests and ecosystems.  Even places that were once barren desert and wasteland have been  transformed into lush green landscapes.   Our society started adopting the principles of permaculture into our practices, and it changed the way we approached many things, not just limited to farming.

Dull, lifeless rows of poisoned corn and other crops were replaced with beautiful forest farms and communities.  Agriculture morphed from large-scale, destructive commercial farming to globally spread forest gardens that grew a multitude of foods, medicines, and materials for all manner of things.  People began to work with mother nature, going with the flow and letting her do the heavy lifting and it worked far better for us.

What the Earth needed from us was simply love and respect, when we gave that to her, she gave us so much in return.  Once we were able let go of our arrogance and need for total control, nature rewarded us by providing abundance and beauty in all places.

Those forests all around the world have become the cities we live in now, people literally started thinking outside the box when it came to creating buildings, houses, and more.  Having developed as a society a deep appreciation for the natural beauty around us and recognizing the profound effect a natural environment has on our psyches, humans decided to take a different approach for creating structures and buildings; taking cues from nature for their inspiration, the box is a thing of the past.   Our concepts of what “progress” looked like changed drastically.

Healthcare is approached from a more holistic perspective now.  Technology has been blended with the wisdom of living a healthy lifestyle, preventive medicine is stressed. Mental health is approached from a spiritual perspective, we no longer hold prejudices against the things that make us human. Many of the issues people faced in the past simply don’t exist anymore because the society that created them has changed so drastically.   Advances in our understanding of resonance, cymatics, light and more have transformed the way we look at our bodies and how we approach medicine.

As science and spirituality were reconciled and technology grew more advanced, we started to evolve in tandem with it into something more comparable to a mystic elvish society.  Things which were reserved for the worlds of fantasy started to manifest themselves just by our sheer desire to see them.    At this point we had the ability to shape the world inside and around us with our thoughts alone. Collectively, if we wanted to, we could move oceans, moons, planets, even stars across space, time and dimensions.  

We realized it was all so simple and complex at the same time, just like learning to walk.  Our planet was a conscious sentient being, and we were its cells, a part of its spirit, and so was everything else.  We realized too that the world around ours, the solar system, the galaxy our solar system resided in, the universe which contained our galaxy, all of these were part of an even greater whole, an endlessly repeating fractal, what we have come to know as god.

We are no longer bound by time, space or dimension, we have reached ascension and with it we see the fractal continues onward expanding our understanding of reality, answers leading to further questions and opportunities for growth, we are now with all of our progress, even more profoundly inspired by the universe we’re a part of then we ever dreamed possible.  The world of the future is a world of magic, wonder and impossible beauty,  the future is happening right now. 🙂

Here are a few links which I hope inspire you as much as they have inspired me to the fact we’re living in the future right now and a-freaking-mazing things are happening!
