is the Autumn Equinox Day. The
first day of autumn. We
are going into the Harvest Season of the fruits of our work.
May each of us remain attached to the trunk of the Tree of Life, so
that a brunch, each one of us, shall bear the fruits abundantly.

(Shamanic Journeys, Shamanic way of meditation) is one of Yoga-like
exercise of consciousness. It
is a good exercise of consciousness.
It stretches and increase the agility and flexibility of
consciousness. If we want to
reach further and deeper into the Universe (energetic dimensions), we need
to build our psychic and spiritual muscle.
We cannot run a marathon without appropriate training.
is one of useful practices to develop gLiquid
– Light – Flexible Intelligenceh
along with other practices such as Meditation, Kriya Yoga, Astral
Projection, Astral Travel, Creative Visualization, Hypnosis, Regression
into past, past lives, future and future lives.
consciousness or human existence is like an onion.
You peel an onion layer, you find one layer deeper.
There are infinite numbers of layers going deeper and deeper into
our consciousness, getting closer to God consciousness (Atman Self,
Sovereign Integrity). People in Ancient India called the layers as the
thousands petals of lotus. Each
layer we go deeper into ourselves, we unfold and re-discover the self, the
self which existed for eons of time at our personal and collective
unconscious. We get closer to
our God Self (Atman – Light Self). We will improve our connection and communication with Divine,
Spirit and the Universe.
Shamanic Journeys, we enter the alternate realities (AR) or non-ordinary
realities (NOR). Portals
to the alternate realities are everywhere.
We enter through the portals to the alternate realities and
return through the portals to the ordinary reality.
the workshop on 9/17/2005, we took 3 Shamanic Flights (Shamanic Journeys);
First to Lower World; Second to Middle World; Third to Upper World.
These three dimensions (Lower, Middle and Upper) are the part of the total 9 Realms:
The center, here
in our body. Our body is the
sacred temple. As Hermes, the
human archetype of the wise counselor and healer, says gAs above, so
belowh, our body is the microcosm of the macrocosm (the whole Universe). Our whole body systems (physical body, heart, mind and
spirit) is a representation of the whole Universe (God, Atman, Sovereign
Integrity, the origin of all creations of the entire universes). We are a representative or a unique manifestation of God (the
Whole). As a unique
presentation or expression of God, Divine Energies, each one of us is a
co-creator of this world (Earth), collaborating with God (Divine, Spirit
and the Universe).
Father of Sky
Void: This is the
origin where everything comes from and is created.
Primordial Ocean of creation.
Eternal tide of the Universe.
Eternal cycle of in-breath and out-breath of the cosmic tidal wave,
the cosmic ocean. Sat –
Chit – Ananda. Absolute
Light and Existence – Eternal Life of Breath and Cosmic
Consciousness) – Absolute Love/Bliss.
only what you need for life, no more than necessary or no less than
necessary. You shall neither
gorge nor starve yourself. Do your best to put back into Mother Earth – Recycle as
best as you can. Mother Earth
knows how to neutralize even poison into something useful.
Journeys begin with creating the monotonous beats – tones - rhythms.
Sound tools include drums, percussions, gongs, bells, (Tibetan,
Buddhism) sound bowls, rattles and (South American) rain sticks.
With the monotonous beats and rhythms, the body goes into the
harmonic state. Heart beats
and brain waves go into the harmonic state.
Harmony will clear debris, impurity in our body (toxic thoughts,
which is the source of all diseases, toxic chemicals built up in our body
and mind) and raise the vibrations of our body, mind and spirit.
Shamanfs 4 Inter-Changeable Roles
1. Seer (Seeker)
we mature spiritually, we shall take all four roles.
We shall balance all four energies.
We become all four; a seer, teacher, healer and warrior (not or).
a seer (seeker), we train ourselves to see by our own eyes.
Our perception will be truthful, clean, pure and neutral, being
free (liberated) from illusion, delusion, fantasy, willful thoughts,
wishful thinking, narrow dogma, social and cultural influences and
programming, and all other thoughts of extreme polarities.
a teacher, we will develop trust to communicate what we see with the world
and people. Like Jesus Christ, we will develop courage and strength to
speak truth. We will be free
from the fear of being attacked and ridiculed.
a warrior, we fight to defend, protect and help ourselves and others.
A warrior is different from a soldier.
A soldier only takes a command from the higher-ups. A soldier does not have a long-term strategy or living
principles (inner light) to refer to.
A soldier accept the orders without asking questions.
Warrior (Aries energy) is Peace Maker and Mediator (solar opposite
Libra). A warrior is a
problem solver. A warrior
brings resolution. One is
strong, powerful and resourceful. A
warrior is a leader.
Universal Questions (Check List) during Shamanic Journey (or any astral travel)
you travel the Shamanic realms or any energetic dimensions, use the
following questions as a check list.
If the beings you encounter during the journey does not give you
the appropriate answers to the following types of questions, you may
simply want to dismiss the beings. Just command gleaveh.
If the beings does not have good reasons to meet you at alternate
realities, you may not want to waste your time and energies dealing with
the beings which have nothing or little to do with you.
Worse, the beings may mislead or misguide you. There are certain risks such as illusion and delusion
(hubris, self-inflation) at the alternate realities.
1. Who are you?
2. What are you?
3. Why are you here? What brought you here? What is the purpose of your appearance or presence?
4. Where will you guide me to? Will you please guide me to the place where I can learn and grow, where I can obtain information, guidance and advice? Where is this, this world or energetic dimensions?
5. When will you guide me there? Are we going there now? When did this happen, past, present and future?
How are we going to do this together?
How did we or do we work together?
the beings you encounter at alternate realities do not give you the
appropriate answers to your questions, give a command gleaveh.
If you feel something demonic or dubious about the beings, do not
be tempted, just communicate your intent for them to gleaveh the
your intuition and choose well who you will associate with at the
alternate realities. It is your free will and responsibilities to choose the
companions at other dimensions (and this world, of course).
Lower World is also called Under World, Nether World or Lower Earth.
This is the world below our feet (under ground).
is the realm where Power Animals, Guardian Spirits, Guardian Healers
resides. Of course, the energetic dimensions are fluid and
inter-connected, and there is no physical boundary among lower, middle and
upper worlds. The beings from
other dimensions may show up.
open and flexible in your perception during the Shamanic or any meditative
flight into other realms.
is no direct light source at the Lower World.
There is no Sun and therefore no shadow at the Lower World.
The beings do not have shadows.
Yet the Lower World is not dark.
Lower World and beings are self-illumined. The World and beings create their own lights.
Thus you are able to see the Lower World and beings.
My Voyage the Lower World
met a crocodile (animal totem) in water.
Water is contaminated. Water
in my body and water in the natural systems (ocean, river and lakes) are
contaminated. It is murky, toxic and unclean.
The crocodile will help cleanse water in my body and eco (Earth)
crocodile is a messenger and cleanser of water.
The crocodile is also a warrior.
Crocodiles fiercely fight to protect Mother Earthfs health as
well as humanfs personal health, removing impure - contaminated thoughts
and emotions (the source of all
diseases) and toxic chemicals in our physical body.
brought SOS signals from my own body and Earthfs water systems.
Especially Mercury contamination.
Mercury in the ocean is building up in fish and human body.
is a messenger and teacher of the importance of Pure – Clean Water
in our body and eco system. Why
is the water flow system of our body and Mother Earth so disturbed?
What can we do to clean water on Earth and human bodies?
There is much to raise my awareness and do something to clean and
defend the water systems in humans and Earth.
took me into the underwater ancient sites.
There are many dead bodies under water.
Crocodile is serving God/the Whole to clean up the dead bodies so
that the lost or trapped souls can ascend to Light.
It was a crocodilefs request if I can help it to cleanse the dead
bodies and assist the cleansing process of the stuck souls.
It is a call from the Under World to assist the stuck soulsf
ascension to Light.
World is Middle Earth where we reside.
Dead people who did not cross over can reside at the Middle Earth.
Earth bound spirits reside at Middle Earth. Natural spirits such as elves, fairies, gnomes, elementals
are the custodians of Earth. May
be, there are ghosts who are earth-bound and are not supposed to ascend to
Light. They may have
earth-bound missions here at Middle Earth.
So, some ghost spirits walking on Middle Earth may indeed have
missions ordained by Godc May
be, I do not need be afraid of all ghostsc
when you meet the beings at Middle Earth, ask those beings questions
gwho, what, why, where, when, howh.
If they donft answer your inquiries, just ask them to leave.
My Voyage the Middle World
went South. I met a Red Salamander, a Fire Elemenental, a Fire Lizard or
Fire Dragon. It has wings.
It flies and it took me to under water.
I saw an under water volcano.
The under water volcano is active.
I see Fire in Water. This
is a magical and mystical scene. Fire
in Waterc. This fire is never extinguished in water.
This fire co-exists with water.
Fire-ly creation is going on in the deep water, in my deep water of
sometimes see in my clairvoyant vision an eruption of an under water
volcano, probably in Pacific Ocean. This
is the rise of an island, the remnant of Lemuria, above water.
Some land/islands go under water and some under water land goes
above water. The world
map will be re-written over time. This
will happen in synchronicity with how humanity continues destroying -
trashing Earth as well as how human species develop its consciousness
(from 2-strand DNA to multiple-stranded DNA).
strand DNA people can be interpreted as those people who utilize 5% of DNA
information, knowledge and wisdom (majority of current population).
Multiple-strand DNA people can be interpreted as those people who
utilize more than 5% of DNA information, eventually to 100% of DNA
information. Simple math indicates we have x 20 times potential or dormant
power or abilities that we have not utilized yet. We know x 20 times more than we think we know.
World is the Vibratory World. The Upper World is inhabited by humans, humanoid, celestial
beings, extra celestials, angelics, ascended masters and teachers,
ancestors, spirit guides, many other kinds of energetic beings and pure
consciousness (e.g. Christ or Quan Yin consciousness).
Lower, Middle and Upper Worlds overlap.
They are connected. Many
beings go across all the dimensions and come see you...
My Voyage the Upper World
wings have been broken at the back. I
was unable to fly (spiritually) for some time.
My wings are re-built now. The
wings are now made with more solid, stronger and physical material.
My wings are more robust. I
can soar into the spiritual realms higher and further and longer. Oh, my spiritual flightc
wings are no longer white color – it is more earthy color with
earthy material .. like eagle feather..
My spiritual journey will be more attached to the physical.
I will be safer and be protected by Eagle Spirit when I take off to
the spiritual realms.
with Eagle Wings camec This
Eagle Spirit is both earthy and spiritual.
The Eagle can sustain its energy and presence in both spiritual and
physical worlds. The Eagle
can sustain its activities at both spirit and earth planes.
is the highest flying bird among bird species on Earth.
Eagle has a power or is able to go between Spirit (High - Upper)
and Earth (Middle World). Eagle
is a messenger of Spirit and God going between Spiritual and Material
Dances with Spirit Guide
workshop ended with a dance with a spirit guide.
My Dance with Oaness.
greeted me. Oaness is a carp
god, fish god, a celestial being landed in the Persian Gulf Ocean off
todayfs Bahrain (Qatar) many Earth years ago (may be about half million
years ago). Oaness is a Sumerian Enki, Fish God, the protector and
defender of Humankind. Enki
is the god or deity who went against Enlil, the lord of Earth, and
informed Noah (humankind) to build a ship to survive the Great Flood.
Katrina and Rita, two major hurricanes are causing flood and damage to the human habitat in Texas and New Orleans areas. Each one of us is responsible to build a ship (a strong vessel = strong self = strong and healthy ego boundary = original value systems = original discernment) and survive Flood and other catastrophe (personal and collective karmic lessons).
This is also the time for all of us to reflect what we collectively have done to Mother Earth. The surface temperature of ocean is now 90 degree Fahrenheit (32 degree Celsius) which might have caused the monstrous hurricanes. We, humans, are responsible for the global warming.... We have been trashing and destroying Mother Earth for so long. We will all be responsible to repay the karmic debt to Mother Earth, and hopefully bring the eco systems of Mother Earth into balance in time (before it's too late)...
May Reiki, the Spirit of the Universe, bring healing to all the kingdoms and Earth. May Reiki, Spirit help us to restore the balance....
I danced with Oaness, Enki, my father. I heard ancient whispers calling me to take a further voyage to remember and re-connect with my origin unto Earth Planes millennia agoc.
