Sedona: Chapel of the Holy Cross

The portals of Sedona

On our way into town, we had driven past the Chapel of the Holy Cross, so we decided to return  to the Village of Oak Creek to visit this magnificent shrine..

Influenced by the Empire state Building in 1932, the chapel was inspired and commissioned by Marguerite Staude. She first attempted to build it in Budapest Hungary, but the project was aborted because of the start of world war two.

With the help of Lloyd Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright she decided to build it in Sedona.

 Barry Goldwater, senator of Arizona, obtained a special permit to enable her to build it in the Coconino National Forest at a cost of $300,000.

The chapel was then  completed in 1956.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

Can You Influence or Change the Past Life That You Access During Regression

Written by Gary Wonning

Can you influence or change the past life that you access during regression? That is a question often asked by people who have had several regressions and discovered some lifetimes when various acts were performed which lead to hardships in latter or even this existence. 

They wonder if it is possible to change that lifetime and avoid the conflict in this lifetime. 

This is not possible, the parallel or past life you access is influencing the life you are now leading,  these influences manifest through issues like fears, anxiety, depression, weight problems, addictions, chronic pain and various diseases. And they are also reflected in the relationships with certain people whom you are interrelating with, to change your past would also change theirs and you cannot and shouldn’t affect someone else’s karma.

The person in regression cannot influence or change the parallel, past life because of the construct of time you have created, and the history that must flow forward. You, on your plane, don’t have a way of influencing or changing the past because the universe won’t  allow it.

For example, if you can mentally transpose yourself from your current year’s plane of existence and see a life from the beginning of mankind, you cannot change that year or period. But that year or period can change your current time.

Go on a personal journey of enlightenment and discovery

The Purpose of Life; Can We Change our Destiny?

Written by Gary Wonning

Can the purpose of a life, which has been set before incarnation, be changed during that life?

For example can you change your life pla to achieve a greater purpose by helping more people?

You are continuously changing your life by your actions. We each come in with a plan that has been determined before birth, a destiny we have each decided with the help of our guides and angels while we were in the presence of the tree of life. 

We also discuss all the different possible outcomes and paths we may take once we incarnate, nothing is written in stone, it can and will be changed once we enter the physical body. 

The changes in direction is determined not only by what we do , but also by what others around us do or accomplish.  There are always many alternate paths we can take, some of which is determined as to how much we change our vibration once in physical form. 

We can get so wrapped up in the issues of earthly life that we lower our vibrations and begin attraction those souls of a lower life form and we sink lower in evolution.

Likewise, if we suddenly wake up and realize what we are doing and once again follow our predetermined path, our vibrations will once again raise and consequently the universe will once again assist us in accomplishing our higher good. 

Occasionally, especially as we grow older, we may have doubts as to whether we are following our life plan, and many times we believe we should be doing more. This is the time to look back to contemplate what kind of life we have lead so far. In life one step normally follows another and if we have lead a rather normal life with not much fanfare, that is probably the kind of life we will continue to lead, not everyone who learns will be teaching thousands, many times we lead a quiet life so as to enable us to learn deep meaningful lessons without the interruptions of a high profile life. 

Sometimes this can be harder than being in the limelight, especially if we learn we have led influential lives in the past. All souls need lifetimes of rest, one doesn’t need to do it all. 

Many times we need to stand back and let others lead.

It is a normal tendency to share with others what we learn, if that is God’s Will the opportunity will present itself, if it doesn’t don’t fret over it, just go on with life. 

Many times, the learning is a personal event and it doesn’t need to be shared with others. That is part of the learning.

Truth in the Pleiadian World

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

A New World is Evolving

Pleiadians honor truth and are more interested in truth than they are about being right.

By aligning themselves with universal truths, the Pleiadians have evolved to a high level of spirituality. This means that the ego has been conquered to the point that it does not obstruct the evolution of the individual.

How many times, if ever, have we asked ourselves, “Do I want to be right or do I want to be at peace”? The answer to this question may change over time depending on where we are on our individual journeys.

For those who are put off by the words spiritual or spirituality, let me explain what I mean. Indeed the terms are so over used that I too get tired of hearing them. Some people act as if spirituality is a cloak one puts on or takes off depending on their mood or circumstances. Nothing could be further from the truth. When I speak of spiritual evolution or spirituality, I am speaking of the cultivation of one’s inner life.

I am speaking of the cultivation of one’s conscience as a moral standard that one chooses to live by, to enhance their authenticity, and their integrity in order to become more whole and less fragmented in their day to day lives. I am speaking of the cultivation or development of the Self. I hope this helps you to understand what I am trying to convey. I encourage you to not allow let the word get in the way of the message. There are many different ways to express what I am trying to say so if the word spiritual triggers you, then you may have something to explore. Do not let words get in the way of what we are trying to evolve into— a more loving, forgiving, excepting, and peace loving human race. Truth is the essence of who we are!

Listen to Spirit, Spirit Knows Best

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.

Sedona and the American Indians

The portals of Sedona, a land of mystery and intrigue

Written by Gary Wonning

The Native American Indians never lived in the Sedona area, even in the earliest of times. Sedona was believed a magical area, they only came to worship and come closer to their creator. They believed the spirits of their ancestors, as well as those of animals no longer seen in the third dimension, resided in the red rocks, thus it was believed to be a place of great spiritual significance, a sanctuary where one only visits but doesn’t live.

Sedona: Hypnosis In Boynton Canyon

The portals of Sedona, discover new avenues of learning

Writtten by Gary Wonning

After leaving there, we went to Boynton Canyon, the major UFO landing site; we climbed to the top of the mountain and prepared for hypnosis.

She informed us we would be contacting animal spirits, UFO spirits, and Indian spirits.

She said that the wind is normally calm and quiet on this mountain, but when a spirit was “called” in; we would feel a strong gust of cool wind.

I found this to be true, but it was a slight of an under-exaggeration, the “gentle” breeze nearly blew me off the mountain.

I had a very intense session that morning, so I didn’t really receive much information, I seemed to be brain dead, and so I asked Deer to channel it for me.

What Deer channeled and wrote down I consider very accurate concerning my mission. Whom I will be working with and, they answered many questions I had never discussed with anyone.
