Balance Between the Worlds

“You must retrieve the dagger” the Faery Queen says, “It holds magic from the other world. You must return it where it belongs, and restore the worlds to balance.”

At the Fall Equinox in 2020 I had an other worldly encounter during a journey with an intention to return balance between the worlds.

I determined to remember the connection to the Faery Queen and the Otherworld, and on the Fall Equinox, a time of balance, I did a conscious dream journey guided by the drum, with the intention to set things right between this world, and the world behind the world.

The Portal – September 2020

I see my guide, from the wee folk, he holds out his hand, and I place an Irish coin in it. He then smokes his pipe, and I tell him I will bring him tobacco next time. He takes me before the Faery Queen. She is tall and beautiful with her long silver and white hair. Her dress is a gossamer material glowing in white and blue light. Her staff is silver with a crystal ball a top. She takes me over to a reservoir of water illuminated by a blue and white light. A mythical blue phoenix flies around the perimeter, and across the surface, in a magical display of beauty. I stroll around the magical pool of water, and the Faery Queen tells me, “It is a portal”, and says, “Get in.” As I walk towards it to enter, I am moving deeper into the Earth, like stairs descending, and I enter it from underneath it. Just then the pool surface changes into a vortex swirling with great force in the middle. A White Lion jumps into the vortex joining me in a watery realm of blue and white light. We move through it together, traveling far across time and space until we approach a golden gateway. The White Lion enters the golden gate and turns from white into a Golden Lion in a land of sun and sand. I follow behind him and notice we are in the Middle East. I hear the voice of the Faery Queen instructing me what to do. She speaks of an imbalance that has occurred, “Magic was stolen from the otherworld, and placed in sacred objects, to use the power for selfish aims.” I see before me a man whose face is covered by a black scarf, and he holds a golden jeweled dagger in his hand.

“You must retrieve the dagger” the Faery Queen says, “It holds magic from the other world. You must return it where it belongs and restore the worlds to balance.” I approach a man with a black veil covering his face, realizing he is an Assassin. I then take on an invisible cloak, so that I may move about undetected. I walk right up to the Assassin and take the dagger from his hand and make haste to return it to the Otherworld.

Upon my return I stand before the Faery Queen, and she takes the dagger from my hand. She places it’s blade onto the Silver blade of her Sword. She then places the sword into the water of the Faery Pond, and the magic moves down the blade and into the magical pond. The Balance of magic between the Otherworld and Earthside has been restored

Heart of the White Lion June 2021, Summer Solstice

On this Summer Solstice weekend I offered a workshop on Dreamweaving your Destiny and when I pulled on my own thread of destiny, the story unfolded. As I drummed for the group, my own journey emerged and I was guided by fox to an ancient tree with an immense hollow. I entered inside where this time a Golden Faery Queen greeted me, who had just been in my dreams from the night before. In my dream, she gave me her golden robe and gossamer wings. As she stood before me now inside the journey, she reminded me of what had taken place previously in restoring balance between the worlds. The dagger had been retrieved and magical energies restored to their rightful place in the otherworld. She placed the golden robe upon me once again and the golden energy moved to encompass the entire space surrounding everyone in the circle. The Faery Queen handed me the dagger and told me it was a magical tool I could use to help heal. I was given permission to make use of it’s healing powers to help others, because of the role I had played in restoring balance and returning it back where it belonged. Just then the White Lion, who had showed up as a guide in my first journey, was now beside me once more. Only this time the portal he entered was my own heart. He jumped into my heart and I felt a tremendous surge of energy and strength. I became aware of the pain that I held in my heart from grief and loss and betrayal, and it began to slip away, no longer having a home there, and radiated out of me in the form red lines that echoed into the Earth. The White Lion had given me the strength to reconnect with my own heart and my own truth. A deeply meaningful healing that brought me a feeling of freedom and liberation. Many other group members experienced deep healing, significant break throughs, and visions of their soul destiny.

Dream Travel in the Age of Social Distancing

My beloved was in the hospital this week, having surgery in the midst of the Covid Apex. I could not be there at the hospital with him because of concerns of me getting exposed to the virus. It was difficult for me to not be there with him as his advocate, and my concern about his safety due to Covid were hard to take. My worries felt unbearable at times.

Finally, I decided I had enough of worrying, and not able to be there for him and with him at his time of need. I traveled to meet him in a conscious dream.

I gathered my protective energies around me, and cloaked in a golden light I transferred myself there to his hospital room. I came surrounded by a bright golden light and shared this healing energy with him, directing it to any places needed for his healing, protection and speedy recovery. I told him to remember my dream visit and the golden light.

The next day we spoke on the phone, and I asked if he recalled any dreams. He said, “You were in my dream.” Oh really, what else? ” I asked.  A golden light” He said. “I thought it was morning, and so I asked the nurse what time it was, 3 a.m.  she said.” That just happens to be around the time I made my dream visit.

Later that day, he was released from the hospital a day after his surgery, I picked him up and brought him home and we are now focused on his speedy recovery. I am so grateful.

Dreaming with Tesla

Tesla has been showing up in my dreams more and more frequently over the past 6 years. He has taught me about time travel, energy portals, and the different ways we can use energy. When I first encountered him, it was in connection with embodying ancestral energy, and sacred objects as portals of time travel, and whales as wisdom keepers and transporters on the cosmic seas of time.

Tesla and the Time Traveling Cosmic Whale – 2014

I see my dream body change into colors of red/orange/yellow and have a long lithe appearance like a dancer. I know it is the presence of the ancestors visiting me. I begin to speak about how connections with the ancestors works, and that it is through the bloodlines we carry, which connects us to them and they to us. I am sitting next to a man with dark hair and mustache, at a long old wooden table, who is drinking coffee.

Now – I  am standing with a indigenous woman who is my teacher, and we are looking at a glass case holding Native American artifacts, one is made from a deep green and gold luminescent stone, like Labradorite. A heavy stone, and a bit larger than my hand. My teacher reaches through the glass and takes the artifact out, and gives to me.

I then leave the restaurant and am walking down the street, I realize I am suddenly in another time. I see a man, with dark hair and mustache, and in a formal Victorian era suit, sitting at an outdoor cafe having a coffee. I ask him what his plans are, he points toward the boardwalk.

I look at where he points and see a beached whale on the boardwalk, and his huge mouth is wide open. The man takes his leave and calmly walks through the portal. I see many animals, whales, dolphins, seals, and other sea creatures entering the portal of the whale. Now a procession of people, generations of people, are being pulled into this portal, to travel inside this whale. There are a group of women dressed in Victorian style dress who walk into the portal. A group of children of all ages follow them, and the last to make it through are several babies crawling and rolling themselves through, laying in the mouth of the great whale. Some older children come to help them and carry them the rest of the way inside, so that the portal can close with the mouth of the whale. They are now ready to take their journey into the cosmos and the huge whale begins to slowly move away with all this ancestral energy inside.

Soul of my Soul Journey – September 2017

A blue light reaching down, pulling me up and out. I see the pages opening and turning of an immense thick book.  I recognize this book, an ancient record of all my lives and spiritual work. A my guide appears after I have gone through the leaves of the very top of my Tree of Life. He has a mustache, brown hair,  and an intelligent face and a bright smile. He is Nikola Tesla. He is friendly and not intimidating. He encourages me to look through the book. He tells me he is my spiritual intellect. I am very afraid to access what I know in this thick book. He invites me to sit on the stone throne where two Lions guard either side. I sit on the Oversoul throne and see a portal of light open above my head. A turning globe of dreams from other lifetimes and parallel worlds I can enter. He gets down on the steps below me and tells me he is there to serve me. I am overwhelmed by this meeting of the soul of my soul, and honoring of my being.

He takes me to a table where some papers are laid out and I can look over my contracts. He is patient and does not pressure me to look at them. The table appears like the ancestor altar, and he encourages me to work with the energy. This is my path and how I will come to know myself in a new way, and meet the people who I am meant to connect.

Tesla Lightning Portal 2-23-18

An intense lightning storm is blazing outside, I am on my way to bed and am tempted to stay up a bit later to watch the lightning in the storm. I love lightning. I decide sleep is more tempting and crawl into bed. I notice as I drift into a conscious dream state, there is a presence in the storm reaching out to me, trying to contact me in Morse code. I can feel it pulling on my energy. I ask who it is and get no response, and decline the invitation to connect. The lightning strikes outside, and I can feel it shining on my face through my bedroom window. I find myself suddenly in the midst of a conscious dream inside a massive thundercloud, where a swirling vortex of blue and white energy opens in the portal before me. The man who steps through is Nikola Tesla,  the visionary inventor who has appeared in previous dreams, especially connected with time travel and ancestral energy.  I was told that the purpose of this storm was a transfer of energy from sacred sites around the world, the location of these sacred vortexes of energy are shifting. This transfer of energy is being brought to places on the Earth where change is needed. The blue lightning is the energy of change. I then opened myself to these shifting energies and felt it streaming through my crown chakra, and throughout my entire being. This went on until the storm outside passed.

When I was at a conference in Sarajevo in June of 2019, I was walking around old town and saw a statue of Tesla sitting on the sidewalk outside of a bar in his name.  I was taken aback when I saw it. It appeared so much like my dreams of seeing him sitting at a sidewalk cafe drinking coffee. His dress was always impeccable, with a suite and vest and tie, a slight man with a humble voice, and an incredible intellect. He came from Croatia, and was a visionary inventor, who foresaw the invention of wireless cell phones in the 19th century. It is said, he used his imagination to create his inventions, and even worked out all the details and kinks in his mind, before creating them in physical reality. He knew amazing things about energy, some of which is still not understood to this day. He was interested in Time Travel, and he claimed to have had contact with beings from other star systems. He was truly ahead of this time, perhaps he was a time traveler after all. Perhaps we are now on the cusp of a new age, a time of dreaming a new world, and reality creation. Tesla was familiar with all of these things. I have questioned why a genius like Tesla would have any interest in me, but when I think about it, we have several things in common.

1) The power of reality creation through the imagination and dreams.

2) A fascination with Time Travel.

3) A love of lightning

4) Energy Portals

All four of these are areas of deep inquiry and exploration for me. I often find myself entering into conscious dreams, and practicing reality creation. Traveling through time in dreams by tracking a potential future, or visiting the past. Turning up ancient discoveries through dream archaeology, or exploring the nature of the multiverse through inter-dimensional portals.

Angels Among Us

BookUrielIn our Lightning Dream Group this evening, we talked about how to remember our dreams better, by learning how to explore dreams in a conscious dream state. I shared how one can learn to hang out in the twilight zone, that stage between waking and dreaming, before dropping off to sleep or waking in the morning. It is a very useful practice to learn how to become a conscious dreamer. I shared an experience where I was exploring that liminal place of the twilight zone, known as the hypnagogic  or hypnopompic state. It was here, that I found myself in a dark, vast, space where seemingly nothing was to be seen, but something on the edge of my awareness caught my attention. It was a faint pink light on the edge of my awareness, and when I honed in to get a closer look, I found a pink web like material that had an energy to it which felt kind and loving. I wanted to explore more about it and stepped through this weblike material to find myself entering into another reality. I looked down at my hands a saw a mysterious book held there. It was a leather bound book which read, The Book Of Uriel. When I opened it, I saw a picture of a beautiful castle. I suddenly found myself magically transported to the scene I was viewing. Now I am walking a tree swept path along a lazy river, where a roman styled bridge provides passage to the other side. I am now standing in front of a beautiful castle with black turrets supported by sturdy, aged, white stones. I feel an intense longing and familiarity with this place and an incredible desire to return to this place, I know I am only visiting.

After sharing this experience, a woman in our group declares she has been researching Uriel online today and has ordered a book. The next person in our group shares a dream in which she is the architect of a church in a repeating dream, where she is creating some kind of community. We discuss how architects were so instrumental in preserving mysticism and designing cathedrals where sacred geometry was used to create a space for direct contact with the divine. Dreams also provide this kind of space where one can visit locations in the imaginal realm to go and learn from spiritual teachers who have passed on in this realm, but their schools remain hidden in the realm of dreams, yet open to those who know the pathway there. Another dreamer who arrived late to our group, came in and shared he had been trying to find the music and words to a song that was about Uriel, and the other Archangels.  Interesting synchronicity at play in this group, surely there are angels among us tonight.  We took this as an invitation to go deeper and so we explored a conscious group dream journey together as I held open this sacred space drumming us deeper into the dream realms.  We were able to enter the realm of angels, where each person had their own deeply profound and meaningful experience connecting with the archangels, and one even brought the goddess Sarasvati into her dreaming.  The path of dreams is truly magical and profound and I am deeply grateful to the powers which surround us and the dreamers willing to commune with the likes of Arch Angels and Goddesses.
