Different Times, Different Places, Different Soul Mates.

Art Prints

On the physical plane, there seems to be a correlation between where we live, what we are experiencing and the people we attract to us. This seems to apply to soul mates as well.

I think most of us realize there is a difference  between a soul mate and a twin flame. I discovered this on my own personal journey as I have written in A Journey to Enlightenment.

We have many soul mates, souls we met along the path of life. Souls we have experienced many lifetimes and experiences with over the eons. These souls have seen us thru thick and thin, we have had many experiences with them, both what we would call good and bad. Although in the spirit world and in this context, there are no good and bad experiences (actions), just experiences.  

In the real world as well as the karmic world, there is a difference between good and bad actions. What we sow we shall reap, we will have to repay karma for negative actions we may perform. 

Sometimes, for the soul to grow, we need to perform acts that are unacceptable to society and pay the consequences of them.

When we enter a different physical location on earth, we connect with different souls according to what we may learn from them. It seems as we enter their area of influence, we become  engulfed with the energy they project and we move away from others we may have connected with in the past, not so much with everyone we know, but to those we have a strong soul connection to.

In other words, our relationship to others changes as our physical location changes. As we move back into the previous physical location, we again take up the relationships we left behind.

Many times, entering an area where we had some sort of bond with someone from our distant past will rekindle  emotions from that era. As the Australia Aborigines believe, once a spirit passes through an area, an image of their essence remains forever. That is how they are able to track people who have become lost over solid rock and bring them home to safety.

By tapping into that energy, those with an ability to do so are able to see things most of us cannot.

Time also plays a factor, our recognition of other souls is influenced by time, not only the time we are living in but the time frame that we knew others as well. 

Because this, we can often become confused by our feelings towards others, and how those feelings can change over time and distance. 

This is why we come into this existence with very little memory of what has come before, if we remembered it all at one time, it would be so confusing we wouldn’t be able to function properly in this lifetime. 

We can only receive small amounts of light at a time. Our mind needs a certain amount of time to process it and understand what it all means. Once  we understand more will be revealed to us.

Enlightenment

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist.

There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God!

This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception.

It has been an exciting search, at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling.

My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source.

Available in both hard copy and ebook format.

The Sacred Legend of Mackinac Island

Another great article about Mackinac Island and the surrounding area.

Mackinac Island

About 15,000 years ago, Mackinac began to emerge as an Island in what is now known as Lake Huron, when the glaciers of the Ice Age receded. At least three different lake levels were known that helped to develop it as it is today. It is believed to be during the Nippissing post glacier period about 4000-6000 years ago, due to the erosive action of the ancient Great Lakes, that the cliffs and rock formations were created in the Breccia Limestone. As the Halite or rock salt washed away, caverns were left in the softer rock. Centuries ago, Lake Algonquin supposedly covered all but the center of Mackinac Island and left only what is known as Sugar Loaf protruding. It stood 75 feet above ground level and is the largest of the limestone stacks. The measurements are two miles wide, three miles long and eight miles around.

As the years passed, birds dropped seeds and wild animals began to visit the Island, causing different fauna to begin to appear on the landscape. Clumps of trilliums, lady slippers, species of asters, forget-me-nots, violets, buttercups, a variety of orchids, jack-in-the-pulpits to mention a few, grew in the soil. Over 600 species of plants eventually appeared to grow on the surface. Trees of pine, cedar, spruce, maple, oak, elm, and more took root in the dirt and rocks. Birds began to come to roost in the branches of the trees and look for food along the shores. Herrings, ring billed gulls, blue herons, Canadian geese and loons, winter snow owls and the great grey owl from the Artic came to nest in the warmer climates surrounding the Island. Later on many species made their home on the Island such as the tundra swan, ospreys, purple martin, blue jays, orioles, warblers and many others.

The first visitors were aboriginal Indians around 11,000 years ago in prehistoric times. After the last glacier – 4000-6000 years ago, Indians looked out over the Straits between the newly formed lakes and gazed at the high bluffs. Legend has it that it resembled a large reptile and called it Mich-la-mack-in-aw derived from the Chippewa and Ottawa language, Mi-she-mi-ki-nock, meaning big mud turtle. Their totem was the turtle. They looked at the Island in awe especially at the arch rock, which they believed was the gateway to the Island in which Gitchee Manitou (A Great Spirit) entered, to go to his home in Sugar Loaf Rock. They saw the Island as mystical and believed it to be sacred land. They buried their dead chiefs in the caves.

Long before any white man set foot on Mackinac Island, the Anishinabe lived near the St. Lawrence Seaway. About 500 years ago, they received a vision that guided them to move to a new land. The vision ended where the two lakes met. The Anishinabe divided into three groups. The second group called the Ottawa, settled on Manitoulin Island. An independent small group of Indians lived on Mackinac Island. They roamed the woods and fished the lake that surrounded it. They set up their wigwams and made their encampments for trade or other business along its shores and rested there after long winter hunts. They held Jubilees and war dance. Their children played upon its sandy shores. The Ottawas thought them an interesting people and made a confederation with the tribe. However this small tribe had powerful enemies, the Iroquois of New York. One day in the dead of winter, when the tribe was celebrating a victory with a Jubilee over the conquest of the We-Ne-Be-Goes of Wisconsin, the Iroquois struck and almost annihilated them. Two of the small tribe escaped and fled and hid in the caves. This was thought to be the end of them. The tribal name was Mi-Shi-Ne-Macki-Naw-Go so the Ottowa and Chippewa named the island Mi-Shi-Ne-Nacki-Nong in honor of their former confederates and this is supposed to be the true origination of the Island’s name, Michimackinac, according to Chief Mack-e-te-be-nesay or Andrew Blackbird (Black Hawk) in a traditional story told in 1887.

Oh, the stories that could be told over the centuries. Some are true but some may be just legends. Legends are told over the years but somewhere many have been based on actual facts. Take for the example, this story. It is the tragic story of a young Indian couple. I will call them Running Bear and Little Bird for lack of their real names. Running Bear was leaving on a raid on another tribe. Little Bird received news that he had been killed and wouldn’t be returning to her. In her grief for her lover, she threw herself off one of the high cliffs to join him in death. The tragic story is that she was wrongly informed and that he returned safely so that her death was in vain. Later people named this site as Lover’s Leap.

Missionary’s quest for souls brought the Jesuits to the area. In 1671, Father Marquette founded a mission here. It was the first in the region replacing one founded three years earlier on Lake Superior’s shore at Chequamegon Bay. It later was moved to St. Ignace. Abundant fishing for centuries brought large populations of Indians to fish the lakes. Ottawa, Ojibway, French Canadians, Metis, Scots and German Jews conducted business upon the shores. Trading for furs brought the first white explorers. Beaver pelts were traded for metal knives, awls, kettles, steel flints, guns, ammo, blankets, and jewelry. Liquor was prohibited but unscrupulous men still gave it to the Indians for furs. Packs of thousands of pelts were shipped to Montreal and eventually to France and England where they graced the heads of customers. Desire for fur hats in the 17th and 18th century led the Canadians to establish supply networks. Mackinac Island was chosen to be the rendezvous point for this action. The traders and Indians came in flotillas of canoes for supplies for the next season but after business was conducted it was time for revelry. Their recreation was performing contests of great skill, along with many types of games, drinking good whiskey, gamboling, and the swapping of the tallest tales. It was a wild and heterogeneous assemblage of several hundred men, both savage and civilized that gathered every year upon the shores.

The fur trade was so profitable that the English tried to win Indian suppliers away from the French. Forts were built to protect the fur trade and to make sure the government got its share. Furs were the lifeblood of the French, the main lively hood of the British and of great economic importance to the Americans. The first fort was built by the French at Mackinaw in 1715. Two battles were fought on Mackinac Island during the War of 1812. The British took over the fort at Mackinaw after a great victory in Montreal in 1760. They took control without firing a shot. They moved to Mackinac in 1761 after a victory in the French and Indian War because its high limestone bluffs and excellent harbor made for better defense. They had grown concerned that the Americans were going to attack and that was the reason to move the Garrison. The King’s 8th Regiment was garrisoned there. During the American Revolution the British burnt the fort at Mackinaw to the ground and moved their defense to Mackinac’s bluff’s. In 1783 the Americans had taken possession of the fort but the British again captured the fort in the War of 1812. The Jay Treaty gave it back to the Americans in 1815.

During the British occupation, the Indians did not trust the British. They considered the Indians a conquered people. They considered the Indians and half breeds as savages. Take for example, the tragic love affairs of Sophia Biddle. Her father, Edward and mother, Agathe Lavigne owned a fur trading center in the small village. They wanted a good education for their beautiful daughter so sent her away to her uncle where she became very sophisticated. She spent the seasons in Detroit where she met a young officer named John C. Pemberton. He despised Mackinac Island and said it was a godforsaken outpost with nothing but savages and half breeds. He was a very bigoted man. Little did he know Sophia was one of these half breeds. She fled back to her home on Mackinac Island so he wouldn’t find out the truth. When he came looking for her and found she was a half breed, he spurned her and sarcastically turned his back on her in disgust.

Having a change of heart, he returned the next spring to see her, only to hear she had died of consumption and a broken heart. She is buried in the St. Anne’s Cemetery. This kind of distrust of the British led to Pontiac’s Rebellion in 1763-1766. The Native Americans waged war against the British and attacked Detroit. They were dissatisfied with the infamous policies of the British after the French and Indian War. The British were brutal in the treatments of prisoners, targeting and exploiting civilians caught in the middle. British officers attempted to turn the tide of battle by deliberately infecting the Indians with blankets riddled with the small pox virus. The treachery and ruthlessness drove a wedge further between the Indians and the British. They also refused to give them free ammunition as the French had done and treated them arrogantly. They built forts and allowed white settlers upon the Indian land. The French had cultivated alliances with the Indians, traded with them and even intermarried with Indian women. When the British took over all that changed and everything from then on turned sour. The Indians joined together to drive the British from their land. Pontiac gathered the Ottawa, Potawatomi, Ojibway and Huron Indians into one confederation. The French had vacated the fort in 1761 but the French civilians encouraged the Indians to drive out the British. In 1763, the Mackinac fort was attacked and most of the British killed. The Indians had used the ruse of playing a game of Bagataway (Lacrosse) in front of the fort. A ball deliberately was knocked into the fort as the soldiers watched the game in interest. The Indians all raced into the fort after it and the women handed them their weapons hidden under their blankets. The unsuspecting soldiers were killed but the French were left unharmed.

Alexander Henry, a British subject had been urged by Jean Baptist Leduc to go in trade with him at Mackinac. When he landed he was met by 6 warriors with tomahawks in one hand and scalping knives in the other. He hid for a while in the attic of Charles Michel de Langlade but they were afraid they would be punished for harboring him as a blood brother sometime before and hid him for safety in Skull Cave. It was dark and Alexander laid down on leaves and brush for the night. He felt something sticking him in the back and the next morning in the light of day realized he was sleeping on human bones.

Because of Pontiac’s lack of success in capturing Detroit the British took over the fort at Mackinac again in 1764. After the French and Indian War in 1780 the British still controlled the fort. In the War of 1812 the British and Americans fought over the Island. The Americans gained control with the Jay Treaty.

In the 19th century, tourism was given a boost. The Federal Government declared the Island as protected land. This limited the development and set building restrictions as to preserve the natural beauty of the land. Writers found the area and described its beauty and Victorians flocked to the Island in droves. It became one of the nations most favored resorts. They traveled by excursion boats from Cleveland, Detroit, Buffalo and Chicago. In 1887 The Grand Hotel was built. Summer cottages were also constructed for tourists who wished to remain for a while upon the Island. They danced to the music of Strauss’ Waltzes, listened to the great Marches of Sousa. They dined on delicious whitefish, and strolled along the decks and romantic beaches. Social activities included, tennis, bicycling, hiking, swimming and examining the Islands natural wonders. Later on a golf course was built.

During the Great Depression tourism fell off but picked up again after World War II. The Island has attracted great political figures such as presidents and governors. Two movies have been made there, “Somewhere In Time” and “This Time For Keeps” starring Ester Williams. Thousands of tourists still visit Mackinac Island each year.

I can’t recall who said this but it was said that the Island was here First for FURS,
Second for FISHING, Third for FUN and now-days for FUDGE.

Interesting article I found, sorry I have misplaced the author.

Every year thousands of vacationers come to the Canary Islands to enjoy the sunshine, beaches, and many resorts that dot the islands!

1,000 Places to see before you die.

Very few even realize the islands boast many pyramids, which are well worth seeing. Most of the pyramids are located near the town of Guimar on the Island of Tenerife.

Located on the east side of the island, near the south end, the pyramids were first discovered by the famous explorer Thor Heyerdahl.

According to most reports, the pyramids were described as just piles of rocks or agricultural terraces made by ancient farmers. Upon observing the pyramids Thor didn’t agree and was so impressed by them, he remained to study them during the last years of his life.

Resembling step pyramids found in Egypt, Mexico and Peru, the question remains, who built them, and when?

One of the theories is that they were built by the Guanches, the original inhabitants of The Canary Islands. Although the Guanches were thought to not have the technical abilities needed to build the pyramids, they did mummify their dead as the Egyptians,and they also knew about pyramid design as has been illustrated on their  artistic seals known as pintaderas.

There is much evidence the pyramids were aligned astronomically and it has been theorized they were used for ceremonies at special times of the year, such as the solstices and equinoxes. Not only are the pyramids located on the south of the island, they can be seen on the west side of the island and in the north as well.

Although no one knows for sure who built them, most of them are located in areas of the island the Guanches inhabited. Could these ancient inhabitants be the same peoples that immigrated to Egypt and constructed the pyramids in that ancient land? Are they remnants of a great society that possibly existed in this part of the world, possibly Atklantis,before recorded history,and before the ancient Egyptian empire rose from the ashes?

Life Goes On

Life after Death, Reincarnation?

Gary’s E books

There are as many theories as to where we go after passing from this earth plane as there are pebbles on the beach. Everyone and every religion have their own dogma.

Some believe there is nothing after this life, while others believe in reincarnation or that we lie in wait for a thousand years for the second coming. Personally , I find it hard to believe there is nothing after this life, what would be the purpose? Why spend all the time and energy of living a life, if what knowledge we have gained wouldn’t be put to good use either by ourselves or others?

Why would someone go to college, or increase their learning when in their golden years if there weren’t some where or some time to share this information?

Others believe after death they will “sleep” until the second coming when all will be resurrected to live again. Most people I know can’t sit still for five minutes, how are they going to sleep for a thousand years? There has to be a better answer.

Many people and religions believe in reincarnation , many individuals have done hypnotic regressions and relived one or more past lives. The Mormons believe after death, we will enter the celestial kingdom, where there are many houses, and thus  enter the kingdom earned by the life lived on earth. Hence the more noble  and righteous we have been, the better kingdom we will enter.

To me, this is another explanation of reincarnation, where it is believed our future lives are determined by how we treat others and live our lives , thus creating karma or releasing it. Although many would disagree, to me the last two beliefs are the most sensible. They are pretty much one and the same, just different wording to satisfy one’s comfort level.

I realize we rightfully should try to make the world a better place than it was before we came and unselfishly work to that end. However there is always the personal and self interest side of it also. We are also here to improve our selves and work towards perfection so we may enter the Kingdom of God. How can we do that if we only live one life?

Interesting? Follow me on Kindle.

We are all working towards perfection, even though each and everyone of us has a different theory of what perfection is. How can we work towards something, if we don’t know what it is? My theory is we can only carve the rough ashlar into a perfect stone by trying over and over again until we finally get it right, and in the process figure out what perfection is, at least our version of it. As all great sages know,there are many valid paths to the truth. Thus it would take more than one existence on earth to walk down them all.

UFO:What Can We Learn From The Extra-Terrestrials?

YOUR FAVORITE PARANORMAL ONLINE STORE

UFO: The Lessons we can learn from the Extraterrestrials

Needless to say the travels, people we meet, and the experiences one has changes the way an individual feels and thinks about a lot of things. This along with the fact many people are having close encounters and learning from other life forms, all these dramatically change our perception of the world and everything around us.

On a personal level,it has opened up my intuition so that I can understand more of the  complexities of life. I have learned how to find an answer from within, when I have a need.

One particular area that changes a person’s perspective is Sedona Arizona.There are many reasons to visit Sedona, the many forces in Sedona have a way of opening the channels in our psychic so we are able to channel information from the “other side”. As a result of visiting Sedona and also other areas, I have been able to recall about 30 or more lifetimes, in all parts of the world and many different time periods. I have envisioned lifetimes as varied as being an Inca High Priest, Indian Chief, medicine man, aborigine, and catholic priest, I lived  in colonial times, and at a time when witches were hung. I have been an English Army General, Emperor of Japan, Druid, I was a Christian hiding in the catacombs of Rome. One of my more infamous lives I assisted in killing Caesar. Some of the more inconsequential and less glamorous lifetimes we won’t go into at this time, but myself, as well as everyone else has those as well. We must experience life in all situations to fully understand our time here on earth.
In those lifetimes I have found  many of the same people that I know today, a couple I have been married to, some many times, some I’ve had conflicts with , there are four or five that we have exchange parent/child relationships many times. One we were married in one lifetime, lovers in another, the list goes on and on.
We definitely do come back many, many times to try to work our past conflicts with other people and join with some to fulfill a particular mission, as well as to just enjoy life.

I am not unique in this respect, we all have lived many times and played various roles while doing so.
I think the important thing to remember is that you don’t have to agree with everyone, just realize everyone sees a different truth, a different reality, no two people experience things in exactly the same way. It doesn’t really matter if anyone agrees with you or not. The things I’ve seen and felt are my reality  and I believe it. What someone else has felt or seen is their reality and that in no way affects me, unless I want it too.
We have to learn to rise above Karma, Karma is nothing but guilt. That guilt is the driving force behind reincarnation. We feel a need to come back and “do it right”, so one keeps trying until the mission is accomplished. We judge ourselves,no one else can, when we no longer judge ourselves, or when we feel we have settled the score, we are no longer attracted to the things that annoy us. and it is then we can move on to  bigger and better projects.
I think that is what the ET’s,( who are only extensions of ourselves from another time period), are trying to teach us, we are all one. there is only one. we are all part of that Supreme  soul. Whatever any individual soul experiences, we all experience. whatever I experience everything in the universe experiences, Lets face it if the aliens were going to destroy us, they would have done it long ago. They are here to help us, all we have to do is ask, they are family.
They say that one of the more most important things we have to do is remove any fear that one might have.
 Remember no one can hurt you, you cannot die, you will always be, no one can take you. Every material possession  you have, you will some day loose.Nothing is permanent, except change.
Some day, some time, you will loose everything that you have. Except what your soul learns on a spiritual level,that you can never loose.
Worldly possessions are fine, and there is nothing wrong with having stuff, but your spiritual possessions are priceless. (Even more so than Master card.)Value them,remember who you are, where you have been, and most importantly, where you are going.
As Richard Back points out in his book, ONE, you have given your life to become what your are, was it worth it?

The Land Before Time

The Land Before Time

  YOUR FAVORITE ONLINE PARANORMAL STORE
Volumes have been written concerning the search for the inner earth or the land before time. Articles have been written in which it is stated that explorer Admiral Byrd and others have encountered a hole in the earth’s surface at the North Pole which leads to an inner earth civilization where upon entering, ancient life was encountered.

Hyperbola and Thrace have often been associated with this region that lies north of the Arctic Circle. Scandinavians, as well as Western Europeans, have in the past identified themselves with these ancient cultures. Even the Greeks and Romans once believed there existed a mystical land to the north.  It was thought to be the polar center of spirituality.

 I have found in most cases where there is smoke, there is fire. All legends and myths have some element of truth in them. Even in the Superman series, reference is made of Superman going to his home, a crystal city at the North Pole to consult with his father. The North Pole, as well as several other areas on planet earth are deemed as portals to other worlds and dimensions. Sedona, the Bermuda Triangle as well as the Devil’s Triangle off the coast of Japan are among some of the the most well known.

Many times people who undergo hypnotic regressions encounter a lifetime of living in the hollow earth, they encounter life forms such as mastodons which have long since disappeared from the planet. Along the same line of thinking, mastodon remains have been dug up in the polar regions that still have green vegetation in their stomachs. Where did all of this come from, if not from a previous civilization living in those regions of the planet?

I once encountered an individual, who under hypnotic regression experienced a life in which he and another spiritual seeker set out across Siberia in search of this mystical land. Driving on for days and days by dog sled, they eventually ran out of food and water and as a result, they all perished, including the dogs. To this day, this man has an extreme hatred of cold and snow.

The karmic ramifications linger with him since he has since endured lifetimes of living in extreme cold and snow as he also spent the winter of 1777-1778 at Valley Forge. The last I heard from him, he was now living in Florida, so maybe the karmic lessons have been learned.

To me, if all the images of a life in the past are embedded in the human consciousness there must be an element of truth associated with them. It seems the most valuable spiritual lessons are learned by experiencing physical hardships, perhaps that is the Grand Architect’s  way of preparing us, mind, body and spirit for a new way of thinking and evolving to a higher level of consciousness.

Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search,at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source.

Sedona Arizona: Cathedral Rock

Cathedral Rock is located in northern Arizona in the tiny hamlet of  The Village of Oak Creek, just outside of Sedona . As it was  used as a backdrop for many of the American westerns filmed in the area in the 1950s and 60s, Cathedral Rock has become a landmark recognized around the world.

There is however another side to this beautiful and famous rock. In the esoteric world, it is generally known to be a vortex or energy center and as such has an influence on all who pass nearby.

 

What is a vortex you ask? A vortex is the funnel shape created by a whirling fluid
or by the motion of spiraling energy. Familiar examples of vortex shapes
are whirlwinds, tornadoes, and water going down a drain. A vortex can be
made up of anything that flows, such as wind, water, or electricity.

The vortexes in Sedona , as else where on the planet,are swirling centers of subtle
energy coming out from the surface of the earth. The vortex energy is not
exactly electrical or magnetic, although it does leave a slight measurable
residual magnetism in the places where it is strongest.They are best described as portals to other dimensions and realities.

The Sedona area has several vortices, or energy centers, but it is generally known to have  four major ones , Bell Rock ,Boynton Canyon, Airport Mesa, and of course Cathedral Rock.

They all display certain types of energy: magnetic, electromagnetic, male and female, or a combination of some or all. People all experience this energy in various ways, some may feel nothing at all.Others may fell a slight tingling sensation with the hair standing up on their arms, while others may sense a past life or extraterrestrial event. Once visiting a vortex and  having an encounter, one’s life is changed forever.

The energy emitted can and has  been measured, Juniper trees growing in the area are a good physical indicator . The stronger the energy, the
more of a twist the Juniper trees have in their branches. 
Instead of going straight down the branch, the lines of growth follow a
slow helical spiral along the length of the branch.  This spiraling
effect can sometimes even bend the branch itself. The effects of the magnetism has actually been scientifically measured.

The energy of Cathedral Rock is feminine, and the actual site of the vortex is located where Oak Creek flows closest to Cathedral Rock.

Humans regardless of sex, all contain different variations  of feminine and masculine qualities,that  in itself, determines our total personality. These energies need to be balanced in order to live a healthy and productively happy life.

Our Feminine side controls the things one normally thinks of as feminine; kindness,compassion,patience , and consideration.There is always two side to every thing, thus our feminine side also gives us badness or evil.

If you visit Sedona and you need to balance your feminine energies, you will definitely be guided to Cathedral Rock.

Enjoy the view!
