The Past Comes to Life at Tuzigoot, American Indian Village Near Cottonwood Arizona.

The portals of Sedona

Written by Gary Wonning

There are times we may see something that would define a persons purpose in life and we don’t mention it because we don’t think  they would understand  it or think we may be ridiculed because we see something that seems impossible for mortal humans to see.

My parents purchased a extremely run down farm in 1947 when I was three years old. Life was challenging during those years and mom and dad struggled to revitalize the land and make it profitable.

Struggling with the normal vicissitudes of life, mated with the house burning down, there was little money, but there were a lot of fun and good times.

Thru it all , we survived and the farm once again became prosperous. Tiring of the hard work, we moved off the farm and sought an easier life in town.

Years later, while living in Sedona, my dad came to visit and during his time there, we visited many of the historic sites in the area.

One of those sites was Tuzigoot and old Indian ruin near Cottonwood, Arizona. While standing at the top of this ancient village, I saw a vision of my family and many of my dad and mom’s friends working as American Indians in the valley which runs alongside of the Verde River. 

I understood the Indians normally farmed out the land until it became infertile and hunted and fished until all the wild game were gone, they would then move onto more fertile hunting and fishing grounds, leaving the land improvished. 

Mom and dad repaid a lot of karma when they bought that improvised farm and nurtured it back to become a very prosperous farmstead.

Many times the challenges we face in this life are a result of our actions in a previous existence. We all encounter this until we learn to rise above the karma of the past and learn to live a more positive life and realize everyone creates their own reality, and we have no need to feel guilty for the actions of the past, as long as we understand why those deeds were performed and we  truly forgive ourselves and others for past debauchery.

I never told dad what I had seen, later I realized the error of my ways and have pledged to always inform someone of anything of this nature that has been revealed to me, it is part of their spiritual evolvement and they need to know, even though they may think I’m crazy at the time. Photography Prints

America Has Lost Her Way


photo of a distinguished older gentleman

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Written by Gary Wonning

Regardless of how much effort we put into following  our life path, we occasionally lose our way.

Events and circumstances occur that can change our direction immediately. When this happens it can create an environment where we begin to question everything we think we know,  as a result, we can lose our way until a new path and way of life  is discovered.

It is the natural order of things. These are the times when our faith will carry us through, regardless of what we may experience, the in-grown values each of us have will eventually shine through and lead us back to our path.

As cultures and values change, we change also. The Australian Aborigines are a prime example. Once a nomadic tribe , they roamed the out back of Australia and became very much in tune with nature and the environment around them. They  became very astute at being able to foretell coming events and adapting to a way of life consistent to their surroundings.

With the coming of the Europeans, they now must adapt to a new way of life, which after living for 40,000 years under a gum tree  is very difficult to do.

In many ways the life they had was more fulfilling than the way of  life they now have. As a result of the cultural shift, many are now resorting to drugs and alcohol as a respite from their daily life. Many have forgotten the teachings of their fathers, and not being able for a variety of reasons to assimilate into modern day culture, they are floundering aimlessly through life.

Hopefully one day they will regain their sense of well being and begin to assimilate into modern society while sharing their  their spirituality with us.

We in  the modern day world, with all the advances in technology, have spiritually lost our way also. It has become apparent there is a great spiritual void in today’s world, evidenced by the discontent and disconnect from society. With all the modern technology and conveniences in today’s world we should be the happiest people to ever inhabit our planet.

Regretfully this isn’t true, modern man has placed too much emphasis on things and not enough on the more important aspects of our lives. Many have forgotten the value of friendships and most of all their connection to their creator, the Grand Architect of the  Universe. The one who is responsible for all we have.

This connection needs to be re-established before it is too late, we have advanced technology  to be able to have more time to enjoy our relationship with each other, not to take away from it. Technical advances are well and good, I don’t think anyone really wants to live in a Tepee any more, or suffer the many diseases of the past. However, there needs to be a balance.

Modern day society needs the inherent knowledge the aborigines and other native tribes have. If we don’t somehow find that balance we will all suffer the consequences, and I don’t think anyone  wants that. They hold the keys to our future.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could combine their knowledge of the spiritual world with our technology?

The Old Henry J, Growing Up In the Fifties

photo fo two people, a child and an adult looking at a sunset over the ocean

Life was a lot slower and simpler in the fifties and sixties.

Written by Gary Wonning

My grandparents had given me a nineteen fifty-two Henry J for my first car, I was only fifteen so I couldn’t legally drive it on the road, but I kept that car spotless. This was in the early sixties, our lives revolved around hot good looking cars. Very seldom did a week go by when I didn’t wash it or clean it up to keep it looking nice.

In all reality, it wasn’t much of a car, but it ran and had a radio, what else did I need?

I was the only one in my group of friends that had a car, so I was top dog.

Soon, Jim  and I would be making weekly trips to Batesville in my juke box on wheels, in search of adventure, and whatever else we could find.

I started to have trouble with it, minor things; the doors wouldn’t stay closed, radiator problems and such.

One Saturday evening, we had decided the proper action would be to circle the Gibson Theater in Batesville and wait for the show to end. We reasoned that girls would come swarming out of the theater and that would be our chance to meet a couple of them. (Teenage logic.)

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

The Twin Flame Connection

Meeting your twin flame at The Tree of Life

Written by Gary Wonning

The twin flame connection existed long before the beginning of time, and in many lives over.

It’s the reincarnation of the connection between souls, and it doesn’t happen by accident. It’s a soul connection on a spiritual lever, and it goes beyond human perception.

Many times we have false alarms on planet earth when we met someone on the physical plane that we have strong positive karmic ties with and with whom we can accomplish our life’s mission.

These are normally souls that belong to the same soul group as we do, those we have joined to fulfill some physical goal with not only them but others as well.

Souls are always connecting and reconnecting, lifetime after lifetime, we meet many soul mates each earthly existence. Most come and go when the need or desire arises, only to fade off into the sunset once that need passes, some hang on for an entire lifetime always ready to assist us.

The minute that you make the contact, the spark ignites, but it is more than just what humans know love to be. It’s more profound and is much more on the spiritual level, it is something that can’t be explained in human terms.

Some people mistake that soul connection with a notion of what they believe love is because they want to be in love; with what their perception is, their understanding of love is, what their desire is. But that is not the true connection., but it is a step in the right direction.

Only souls who are highly evolved through numerous incarnations can totally comprehend the true connection, but the connections made in the mean time can be just as fulfilling and gratifying.

We confuse those connections with the true connection because we have never experienced anything more gratifying on the physical level and thus the relationship seems perfect.

Cherish those connections, they are the souls you need to be with at this particular time, they are fulfilling your needs, and you theirs, enjoy the bliss. When the time comes you will move on to the next level of evolving into a higher consciousness individual and meet more evolved souls until the final destination is reached.

We aren’t here for a long time, just a short time but each time and life is important, one life is never more important than another, regardless of your station in life.

Sometimes we evolve more by being a lowly servant than a high profile leader.

Equality in the Pleiadian World

 

photo of the book A New World if You Can Take it

A New World is Evolving

Pleiadians say that because the entire universe is the manifestation of Creation, of Oneness, all beings are equal.

Some beings are more evolved than others, but all are children of Creation. Many are more evolved because they have lived many lifetimes and have had more life experience.

All men and women are equal as some souls have been born men and women in various lifetimes.

Men and women are treated equally in Pleiadian society. Social ranking in their society is based on spiritual, there’s that word again, evolvement. Total racial equality exists among them, not only in phenotype and skin color but also between humans and non-humans.

This is the way of Creation and it has been a tough lesson for us to learn here on planet Earth.

Helping kids Who Are Returning To School

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Every year there are good intentioned people sponsoring fund raisers to buy school supplies for under privileged kids returning to school. This is a noble cause and it will help many kids who would otherwise not have the opportunity to have the items they need to succeed in school.

However noble the cause, I look at the reason schools say they can’t afford to buy the items needed in the classroom to enable a proper education.

It seems that daily there are news stories about how teachers and students themselves have to supply the things the schools should be providing. Obviously, teachers shouldn’t be required to purchase these items either. In many parts of the country, teachers are underpaid, and not allowed to discipline their students when they misbehave, some have even gotten thrown out of the class room by unruly students and weren’t even able to defend themselves.

For most of us, our property taxes have risen substantially over the years due to inflation and rising property values, and the schools keep complaining they are always needing more money.

We have school board members making over $200,000 dollars  per year and the schools can’t afford to buy supplies for the children, something is wrong here and it isn’t that the schools don’t have enough money.

Public schools are a government program, and I haven’t seen a government program that doesn’t always need more money, and regardless of how much is allotted to them, they always spend it and always complain they need more.

As the old adage proclaims, ” The easiest task in the world is to spend other peoples money.”

The school system is proving that, there is no accountability, all they need to do is complain to the taxpayers, and the money flows in and surprisingly, the money winds up in the school administrations pockets instead of where it actually needs to go, big surprise.

Meanwhile the students and teachers are once again left holding an empty bag.

When someone works for the government, they are supposed to be a public servant. While I don’t advocate someone working for peanuts, they should not be getting rich off the taxpayers.

Our present school board consists of five members,  the president makes almost $200,000 dollars a year, with the other four making around $40,000. Being a school board member should be voluntary, or at least their salaries should be cut in half, with the president being reduced by at least $150,000. How many school supplies would this one reduction pay for?

I’m not even getting into how much the rest of the administration receives, plus the perks.

By creating this environment, not only are we driving up the costs to the taxpayers, but we are teaching our kids the wrong values.

Kids aren’t learning  to be independent and to make it on their own, the cornerstone of the American way of life. By receiving this presumed “free stuff” , they are being taught to depend on government and others for their daily needs, instead of learning to rely on themselves and finding ways to improvise to make life work, and then and only then to look to others for help through the rough times in life.

If kids learn coping skills, they are then better able to function in the real world, and not become unglued when faced with the first crisis of their adult life.This problem, as well as many others will never be solved by throwing more money at a bad idea. It isn’t a problem of not having enough money, the problem is the priorities are no longer what they should be.

Listen to Spirit, Spirit Knows Best

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

A journey into the unknown. Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Several years ago, after living in Sedona Arizona for several years, we realized it was time to move on to another location. Sedona is an area that is extremely beautiful and abounds in spiritual energy, one of the most sacred places on earth. 

However, many people come here to live and after a few years decide that they have adsorbed as much of the local energy as they can for a while and it is time to move on and apply what they have learned while living there.  

My wife and I had reached that point and decided it was time to go on to the next adventure. 

I wanted to stay in the southwest, I liked the desert and my wife wanted to move to Florida. I never really liked Florida, the only time I had ever been there was in the summer, and summer isn’t the idea time to be in Florida. 

We decided to look around the southwest, first in Phoenix which was entirely too hot, Las Vegas, which seemed like a town with only one type of entertainment, and finally San Diego.

The first trip to San Diego everything looked great, the weather was nice, I liked the mountains and it was close to the ocean.

It was at about this time I started getting messages from spirit that California would not be the best place  for us to move to , I continuously ignored the message, I really wanted to stay in the southwest and did not want to move to Florida. 

Finally, our house sold, or at least we thought it sold. 

We had an offer, but they wanted to take possession in less than three weeks, we hurriedly started making plans and packing, I gave notice to my employer that I was quitting in three weeks and would be moving. 

Then we made plans to fly to San Diego and look for a home . 

We were having a garage sale on Thursday and Friday and then flying to San Diego on Saturday.  

As the garage sale was closing down on Friday, and our packing was done, with just two plates and glasses, and knives and forks for us to use, we prepared to move. 

As I was closing the sale, our Realtor drove into the driveway with a horrible look on her face. The deal had fallen through. 

I was fit enough to be boiled down for glue.

Still, ignoring the promptings from spirit, I was more determined than ever to complete my mission. 

We flew to San Diego the next morning intent on finding our new home. 

Things didn’t go so well this time. Events were just not adding up. 

During lunch, on Mission Beach, someone gave us a bag of pot, right at our dining table, and I noticed that every time we boarded the trolley, people were smoking pot , not the environment I want to live in on a daily basis. 

The property values were over the top, and the places we found were extremely small.

We finally found a small apartment that we could afford in Carlsbad, several miles from San Diego. 

Arriving back in Sedona, life was extremely difficult for the next couple of months, having quit my job and all of our furniture was packed, we refused to unpack and settle back in to our life. 

We finally decided to move to Florida instead, and did so a couple of months later.  

It was a very trying experience and it took over a year to sell our house, we finally sold it on a land contract, which also turned out to be a disaster. 

This would all have been avoided if I had just listened to spirit. 

I still like the desert southwest, but our time had come and gone.

I’m doing my beast to now listen to what spirit tells me to do. 

And Florida is beautiful also, and it’s where I need to be.
