Sharing Photos from Mt Shasta

Robin's picture

When People go up there we tell them,

"Walk softly on Mount Shasta. Talk to it and pray upon it. It's your mountain as well as our mountain. Not only Native Americans but everybody in the world comes to this mountain".

Charlie Thom, Sr., Karuk Medicine Man

Like Japan's Mount Fujiyama, the 14,162 foot volcano, Mount Shasta, California is considered by many to be one of the Earth's seven sacred mountains.

Snowcapped Mount Shasta is located in the upper regions of northern California in the Shasta Trinity National Forest. It is a massive dominant stratum white giant standing 14,162 foot volcano situated in the largest zone of volcanoes in the world called the Pacific Ring of Fire. Mount Shasta is in a section of this ring called the Cascade Range, which begins where the Sierra Nevadas end and extends about 700 miles from northern California through Oregon and Washington into southern British Columbia. These volcanoes range in elevations from 9,500 feet to a towering height of more than 14,000 feet. Mount Shasta is the second tallest volcano in this range.

Mount Shasta is the most widely known sacred site of California. Towering above the Cascade foothills, Shasta is surrounded by five glaciers that hold it in place. This sacred mountain emits such a strong energy pattern, that satellite photos show an atmospheric hole over its peak similar to Sedona, Arizona.

Because of the strong geophysical forces within the mountain, there are steam vents, hot and cold springs, purification sites, electrical centers and caverns that have been used as power spots by the indigenous natives for hundreds of years. Many types of phenomena occur on and near Mount Shasta, as this mountain exhibits strong frequencies that create light shows.

All around the Mount Shasta area are extinct and dormant volcanoes, cinder cones, volumes of artesian springs, sacred caves and mystical caverns. The mountain carries a dominant characteristic of its versatile power, a power that seems to get stronger every day.

Over the last 70 years, numerous travelers have reported encounters with Higher Dimensional beings who live beneath and around the holy mountain.
UFO sightings are so commonplace there that there are books published with numerous photographs of craft so large they even dwarf the mountain itself. People on vision quests, ceremonies and camping expeditions have all seen, heard and felt the powerful vortex that is Mount Shasta.

Mount Shasta is also a site where people gather to perform sweat lodge and purification ceremonies. The intense purification of steam and heat within the sweat lodge mimics what is going on inside the mountain. The darkness of the lodge is almost maternal and stirs the goddess energy of one's spirit. The ceremony directs itself to the physical and spiritual cleansing of an individual as does the sacred mountain.

Many experiences have been documented from people all over the world seeing UFO craft come in and out of this mountain; mysterious openings inside the mountain where advanced inhabitants live; vortex energies & portals; mysterious lights that seem to come from inside the mountain; mountain energy fields that glow and much more.

It is believed that civilizations of highly evolved beings reside within the mountain. Some are believed to be in another dimension that are not currently visible. Yet at times many people from all over the world have experienced a diverse range of phenomena that continues to expand the mysteries of this spiritual sacred grounds.

Mount Shasta is legendary as one of the homes of the Ascended Masters where saints & angelic beings have revealed themselves over the centuries. Ancient legends of Mount Shasta reveal this holy site as where ancient ones lived in heaven on earth as they did in Asgard and Mount Olympus. Ascended Master Saint Germain's energy continuously radiates from the Temple of the Violet Flame deep in the inner recesses of the mountain. Many people all over the world see these mysterious lights and glowing energy emissions from this sacred mountain.

Many believe other Masters influence the energy of this area and are making this their headquarters during the Age of Aquarius that brings peace, love, abundance and wisdom. It is believed that Mount Shasta embodies the head of a huge geographical etheric energy grid.

This sacred mountain has given many people centuries of access to its energy centers. The pristine meadows, graceful slopes and isolated beauty of the mountain continue to provide a haven for those who seek sanctuary from the world that lies at its feet.

Whether your journey to Mount Shasta is metaphoric or also in person, the space I have created here in this blog is to chronicle your/my journey.

How to do a MAP session

How to do a MAP Session

This meditation technique was created by Michelle Small Wright.

Prepare your meditation by being certain that you will not be disrupted. You are to be alone; not even an animal around you for up to 10 feet. Lay down with your arms by your side and your legs uncrossed. Begin to speak out loud.

Ask for the following to be with you. Invite them.

“I invite my Higher Self, the Overlighting Deva of my Health, Pan and the Nature Spirits and my personal MAP team to be present. (If you do not know the name of your MAP team ask them to tell you what it is so each time that you go into meditation you can call them by name.)

Once you invite them in speak out loud and tell them what your concerns are. What is your need? What needs to be healed? The premise is that if you can articulate what is wrong than you are ready for the healing.

Lay there still. If you feel that you are irritated in anyway and feel a compulsion to move before you move tell your Team that you feel a need to move. If they do not remove the agitation then go ahead and move. Then be still again when you can.

Lay there for up to an hour. I usually do this meditation for 15 minutes.

When you are complete in your meditation time, thank all Beings who were there with you and tell them that you are closing the meditation time. Then get up very gently. Drink some water and nurture yourself.

You can do this meditation as you are guided to do it. Just know that even when the meditation is over your healing will continue. Give yourself time between meditations to let your body, mind and soul heal.

September Forecast The theme

September Forecast

The theme for September is CHANGE.

The change also comes with a RESET and a chance to do things in your life very differently. Whether you are the one making a choice or it is a choice or situation from the outside that affects you, CHANGE is inevitable. This month we will explore how to deal with CHANGE in a positive and proactive way so you can use it to RESET your life in the best way possible.

What is CHANGE?

In a nutshell it is the passing from one place, state, form, or phase to another causing things to transform and become different.

We talked about endings and beginnings in last months forecast especially around the last New Moon. Under the theme of CHANGE, endings and beginnings will continue to be important markers this month as we navigate energy that is sometimes very final in its outcome.

There are two kinds of change. Change that you initiate based on a personal choice, and change that is imposed on you from the outside and is usually based on another person’s choice. Change based on your choice is usually something that you want and are looking forward to implementing in your life. Change imposed on you is often unwanted, resisted and judged.

What if you could take the attitude that all change is something you choose?

You would remove the resistance and face the change proactively. Being in resistance to change has no power. Choosing all change no matter where it comes from has a great deal of power.

Change can be sudden, and most likely we will have some experience of that this month, or it can be gradual like the changing of the seasons. The sudden radical changes are the ones that can bring about the most intense reactions. The ones to watch for are the ones that are based in FEAR. Especially this month watch for fear reactions that express themselves through the 7 obstacles of Stubbornness, Impatience, Martyrdom, Self-Deprecation, Arrogance, Greed and Self Destruction. Everyone has a least one of these that is the automatic reaction when fear comes up.

The idea is to be in enough self-observation that you can identify when this is happening and become neutral as quickly as possible. If you are triggered you are not neutral. And you are not neutral if you took something personally. Not taking things personally will be a big test this month but will help with staying neutral and surrendering to the choices of change.

Here are some helpful hints regarding CHANGE.

If you are the one initiating the change:

Embrace it from your heart.

Ask for support.

Do it for you and not someone else.

Complete what you are leaving behind and tie up all loose ends.

Be patient and honor right timing.

Honor the beginning of something new through celebration.

Pay attention to the RESET that is part of the change.

Pay attention to the details of what is needed to support the change.

Make sure to stay balanced throughout the process, as it is an important aspect of successful change.

If you are directly affected by change coming from the outside:

Observe any resistance or fear reaction and don’t take it personally.

Neutralize the resistance or negative reaction as quickly as possible.

Be in acceptance.

Choose the change as if it were your idea.

Honor any completion caused by the change.

Honor the beginning of something new caused by the change.

Pay attention to your own RESET as a result of the change.

Stay balanced and empowered throughout the process.

Ask for support.

Stay out of Martyrdom and any of the other obstacles.

CHANGE always brings something new into life. Anything new always requires a RESET. This should be an exciting time. When one door closes, another one opens and it really does not matter who is closing or opening the doors. The result is the same. Always consider CHANGE to be a gift from spirit and one that keeps life from becoming stagnant.

How the month shows up


This is a great month for resetting some of your personal patterns and behaviors. There is support for change. Make a list of what you know needs to change and start with an intention to change it. Ask for support and then take the baby steps towards the change. If you are feeling stuck, make small changes that do not feel overwhelming or unattainable. Honor the baby steps.

Big changes are possible this month especially in the areas of self-esteem and personal power. If you have done your work with FOCUS and BOUNDARIES last month, you will begin to see results through change in those areas this month. If you have not been great at focus and boundaries, they may come up for you again this month as you strive to change and reset how you navigate your life. (It would be helpful to listen to last months support Mp3 on focus and boundaries)


Claiming more personal power and raising your self- esteem will definitely impact all of your relationships. If the relationship is balanced and has integrity, this change will cause a reset that will be very positive, as both parties will welcome the adjustment. If the relationship is dysfunctional and built on dependency, co-dependency, or is abusive in any way, claiming personal power and raising your self-esteem will cause the relationship to reset in a more challenging way. It will be up to you to hold your boundaries and to do what is right for you.

Not only personal relationships are affected. Business and work relationships may have the greatest reactions to your inner changes. Remember that if change happens radically where you lose a relationship you have taken for granted, do not take it personally and see it as a positive reset in the long run.

People will continue to leave the planet and some will be icons that have held an inspiring position for greater segments of the population. This creates a change in how you view the world and what’s in it at any given time. Make conscious adjustments to your world by acknowledging and accepting who is no longer in it.


Your personal environment is one of the easiest ways to begin to implement change. Move some furniture around, get rid of something that you have been putting up with, bring something new into your personal environment, change a color, and change the location of something you use every day. This will be a proactive step in honoring change. This is especially useful if you are feeling stagnant in other areas of your life.

The greater environment and the physical planet may go through some radical and permanent changes due to earth movement and other natural phenomena. This will cause potential shock as well as a permanent reset. There is great movement occurring and it is difficult to predict what form it will take. Remember that the outer environment follows the inner environment; so the more proactive you are with your inner changes, the more the environment will reflect that.

Radical natural events such as storms, earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, etc., release great amounts of energy and power. This energy drives change and you can either resist it or join it and use it.


Great change can happen in all areas of health and physical well being. This is a physical time where anything you consciously do that affects the physical body will be powerful and has an opportunity to be grounded and permanent. It is a good time to do physical procedures, work on teeth and bones, enhance physical appearance, anchor exercise routines, change your diet, eliminate bad habits and change up your wardrobe.

Do something different that shows spirit you are ready and willing for change to happen.

This can be a very exciting month for health issues as you may get a handle on challenges that you have been putting up with for a long time. Be willing to give up the story of how less than whole you are. Watch the victim in you that wants to resist the responsibility of being well. Anything is possible and radical change is definitely in the air. You may need to set boundaries with the people that are closest to you that may unconsciously resist any radical change you may be making as they are undoubtedly engaged in your story as well.


This is a great month for making changes to what is not working or what is stagnant in your business life. It is a great time to bring in new energy into projects and reevaluate partnerships. Practicality, as well as inspiration, plays a big role in your choices and changes to business, projects and partnerships this month. If you are not inspired by what you are doing and how you are doing it, it is time for a change. It could be something simple like changing something in your environment. Or it could be more radical such as changing your career or job.

If you are starting something new, make sure it is something aligned with you and your personal goals, and not because someone else has influenced you to go for something that does not feel quite right. This is a good month to reset all of your personal goals and to dream just a little bit bigger than you have allowed yourself to dream before.

If the change is not your idea but is happening anyway, look for signs of support and accept any change as perfect in the greater scheme.


September 1-7: There is a charged energy this week that can either manifest in excitement or dread. Make sure you are focusing on excitement instead of dread. How is that done? By acknowledging what is in your life that you love, that inspires you and makes you feel productive and alive. Go for some kind of change this week as a step towards being proactive with the CHANGE theme for the month. Bring something new into your environment and make some kind of change in the maintenance of your physical health and well-being.

September 8: Full Moon is Monday, September 8 at 7:38 PM MDT. Celebrate a change in your life. Even if it is a challenging one and you are struggling with accepting it, celebrate it anyway. This is a time to embrace change and use its power to expand yourself into new territory. It is also a good day to anchor a new beginning of a project, a routine or a relationship. Celebrate it.

September 8-15: This is a week of adjustment to change. You may feel ups and downs in your attitude and energy. Be in acceptance around change rather than in resistance. Watch for the obstacles that may come up around your fears. You can make great progress if you face the unknown with excitement rather than fear. Remember that you are never a victim. If others are having a difficult time of it, be compassionate but be careful not to match them. You can be more helpful by leading the way to more light.

September 16-23: This is a good week to put into practice, practicality and order any changes you are dealing with. Beware of feeling overwhelmed by the chaos factor that is involved with any change. The discipline during this time is to focus on organizing the chaos into the RESET that you want to experience from the change. Make sure you do not put too much on your plate at once. Prioritize and organize and watch the distractions that keep you from that discipline. This is a good time for boundaries and honoring your personal power as well as the commitment around any change you see fit for yourself.

September 22: Autumn Equinox is exact on Monday, September 22 at 8:29PM MDT. Pluto also goes direct on this day. The Equinox is always a great time to RESET and to honor endings so that you can make room for new beginnings. The endings or completions are especially important during this season and especially in light of changes that may be occurring in your life. Acknowledge the changes and honor the endings that are coming about because of them.

It is always important to mark the equinox through a ritual of some kind. You can honor your endings through a burning or burial of a representation of them. Follow this with writing intentions for something new.

September 23/24: New Moon is Wednesday, September 24 at 12:14 AM MDT (or the night of the 23rd). Since this new moon is right on the heels of the Autumn Equinox, the same suggestions apply and you can honor both the new moon and the equinox at the same time. The new moon is especially potent for working on your new intentions. Use this time to focus on what is coming to you as a result of change and make sure to be inspired.

September 24-30: This can be a bit of a squirrely time where you are just not sure of anything. It is important to use your intuition and to trust what you feel is right for you. Don’t take things personally as there may be a lot of projection by others. Remember that everyone is feeling insecure around change that is out of their control. Practice acceptance and choose change as if it were your idea. Make sure you take time for yourself and spend some of it in the organization and reset of your personal environment. Even though this can be a challenging time, it also has power and energy to fuel any big change you wish to implement in your life. Ask for support and go for it.

Have a great month,

Peace Wears a Thousand Masks

Metaphysical Mothering® Peace Wears a Thousand Masks

Munching on a silver branch of apples in a meadow golden with wheat, Tanya the goat was relaxing. She was watching the divine pageant of her little son frolicking with the son of a goat from another country who was watching on the other side of the border. There was no fence between the borders but the Mother goats knew never to cross the line. The goat children didn’t know about the “border” so they just played where it was fun!

The goat children were friends but the owners of all the goats were enemies. Someday the goat children would grow up and know that but for now the goat children played all day until the moon rose and began its passage across the skies. A friendly owl appeared as he did every night. This night he said,

“Woo! Whoo!! Look out! The humans are starting to fight one another!!!”

Then suddenly standing in a patch of moonlight was a shapeless mass of shadows at the top of the meadow! The goat children got very spooked! They saw the goat owners with glittering eyes flickering with flames of hate toward each other. The goat children ran for their lives!

As the Mother Goats saw their children running for their lives they forget the views of their owners! The Mother Goats crossed their respective borders to battle one enemy and to save their goat children. In those fertile fields they both realized who the real energy was and an association of solid friendship began.

The goat children were panting heavily when they turned around and saw their Mother’s fighting for them!

The owl was still with them. The owl said,

“Remember when you see people fighting ask yourselves,

“Woo Woo is the real enemy? What is the lesson?”

Then the owl handed them each a mask as he said,

“Peace wears a thousand masks! Now think happy joyous thoughts!”

The baby goats put the Peace masks on and began to giggle!

Where is your peace mask??? Can you make one? Put it on and giggle!!

The End is World Peace.

Inner Peace creates World Peace.

Do your part to smile today.

Interview with Dr. Bruce Lipton who endorsed Raising Humanity

This is what Dr. Bruce Lipton had to say about my book, "Raising Humanity" by Robin Alexis and 22 Storytellers;

"Raising Humanity provides an important contribution toward nurturing our evolving civilization. Robin's anthology of personal and intimate stories of birthing and family values offer insights into the power of conscious parenting that are valuable to anyone who has child, is planning to have a child, or has been a child once themselves."

"Raising Humanity" is a free download here on this web site;

--Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, Cellular Biologist and bestselling author of The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles

and Destiny

Interview with Dr. Bruce Lipton

Author: Danielle Graham


Bruce Lipton, scientist, researcher, teacher, and author, is driven by a passion to bring scientific evidence directly to the people his information could best assist: everyone.

His journey of discovery began as a cell biologist cloning stem cells to understand their control mechanism. This research was undertaken while teaching cell anatomy to medical school students at the University of Wisconsin. Further research conducted at Stanford’s School of Medicine revealed that genes were turned on and off, not by the genes themselves, but through external, environmental stimuli. These radical findings ran contrary to the long-held assumptions of genetic determinism and became one of the early heralds of an emerging scientific understanding called epigenetics.

Scientific theorems are slow to evolve and these new concepts have not yet been fully integrated into the mainstream of academia, partly due to the fact that the training of health professionals is deeply vested by the pharmaceutical industry and the even greater promise of lucrative gene therapies. Thus, valuable knowledge that reinforces our innate ability to impact gene expression has not found its way into contemporary medical textbooks or clinical practice. To make this evidence accessible to everyone, Dr. Lipton made the difficult decision to leave his financial and professional security and take the road less traveled. He trusted that bringing such knowledge directly to non-scientific audiences could greatly impact people’s lives, just as it had transformed his own.

We asked Dr. Lipton to share his insights into how the science of epigenetics is an empowering model for life and creating our own destinies.

SC: The century old model of genetic determinism is slowly being replaced with the new model of epigenetics. What is epigenetics and what is the distinction between them?

BL: When DNA was found to be the hereditary material in the mid-20th century, the belief system of that time was that our genes were like blueprints and that those blueprints self-regulate and lead to the assembly and function of the human being. This is the model of genetic determinism or 'control by genes,' and it has been thought for the last 100 years that life was controlled by genetics.

Epigenetics is a new model of gene expression. "Epi" means above, so the literal translation of epigenetic control reads, “controlled above the genes.”

SC: Why is this distinction between genetic determinism and epigenetics important?

BL: The difference between these two is significant because this fundamental belief called genetic determinism literally means that our lives, which are defined as our physical, physiological and emotional behavioral traits, are controlled by the genetic code. This kind of belief system provides a visual picture of people being victims: If the genes control our life function then our lives are being controlled by things outside of our ability to change them. This leads to victimization that the illnesses and diseases that run in families are propagated through the passing of genes associated with those attributes. Laboratory evidence shows this is not true.

When we buy into being a victim, we automatically buy into needing a rescuer, meaning we accept that somebody else is going to save us from ourselves. This is the unfortunate situation where the medical community has inserted itself.

Also, even though the genetic determinism belief system has been revised over the past fifteen years, the problem is that the revisions are being recognized only at the level of the biomedical research scientists; these ideas are not making their way to the public. In the meantime, the mass media continues to portray that 'a gene controls this' and ‘a gene that controls that.’

SC: You are saying then that when newspaper and magazine journalists report on published cell biology and genetics research from leading science journals like Nature and Science, they are still interpreting those research findings through the model of determinism, reinforcing the erroneous idea that science will rescue us from our own genetics.

"The medical industry wants to sell genes, they want to sell gene cards: ‘buy a gene card and read your future’ when in actuality, that technology has no more scientific value, maybe even less value, than going to a palm reader or an astrologer"

BL: In fact, advanced, ancient systems of astrology are probably more accurate than gene reading cards.

SC: So if gene cards are not capable of revealing our destiny, that would mean that our gene expressions are not static, correct?

BL: Yes. Epigenetic control reveals that environmental information alters the read-out of the genes without changing the underlying DNA sequenced code. That’s the difference. From a single gene, epigenetic regulation can provide for 30 thousand different variations of expression.

Scientists undertook the "Genome Project" thinking they were going to discover 150,000 genes because their model was based on genetic determinism that each gene controlled a character of the human. Since proteins build our physical and behavioral traits and there were over 150,000 known proteins, they expected to find 150,000 genes: One gene for each protein was their model.

Instead, they found only 23,000 genes. Since then, we have come to understand that each gene can produce over 30,000 variations. To understand the potential variations of genetic expression you could multiply each gene by 30,000 possibilities.

Here's a simple analogy: Decades ago, television stations used to broadcast a circular test pattern after regular programming had ended for the day. Let’s say that our genes are like that test pattern that is being broadcast. The model of epigenetics, then, allows for control through all the dials and buttons on the television set. I can turn the television on and off. I can raise volume. I can change the color, the tint, the contrast, the horizontal, the vertical - I can change every one of those, yet in doing so, I did not change the original broadcast. No, I only changed the readout of the broadcast, and those variations are potentially unlimited. The distinction between what is controlled by our genes and epigenetic selection is defined early in human development.

Human development is divided up into two phases – the first is the embryo phase, followed by the fetal phase. The fetal phase is recognized when the embryo acquires human characteristics and looks like a human. It is then called a fetus. The embryological stage extends from the single fertilized egg cell through all the early little morphings and shape changes until it reaches the fetal stage. Our genes are the fundamental programmers that take the fertilized egg to the stage when the developing cells begin to look like a human. By then, the gene program has laid out the human body plan with two arms, two legs and nose, eyes, etc. From the fetal stage on, the modifications are now epigenetically controlled, meaning, they are influenced by the environment.

For example, once the human form is made then development could become anything from big strong muscles and arms for fighting to a bigger brain for thinking. Those decisions are made from the environmental information at the time that the fetus is developing. Sperm and eggs are generic. They form a human but they don’t determine if that human is going to be born in Bosnia or Zimbabwe or Iowa. Each of those environments requires a different physiology to survive in. For instance, if survival is threatened, then the physiology of the body changes to create a body that will withstand that threat. Information from the environment is very critical in shaping the expression of the genes that have already directed the construction of the human body.

SC: How do we trigger our gene expressions, not as victims of our genes but as masters of our fate?

BL: The brain is a transducer device; it reads environmental signals, interprets the signals and then regulates the body’s chemistry that controls the genetic expression of the cells. Interpretation by the mind is critical because the brain reads environmental images but has no opinion as to what those images mean. The mind interprets the environmental signals based upon our learning experiences. For example, if as children we learned that X is threatening, then whenever X comes into our environment, the mind’s interpretation will stimulate the brain to release neurochemicals that control cell behavior and gene activity to coordinate a protection response.

"The brain perceives images of our world and if those images are threatening, it will release different regulatory chemicals into the body versus if it perceives a love image"

SC: What you are saying seems cyclic: Our environment impacts gene selection, which then impacts the selection of proteins our bodies use to build tissue which then impacts our health and the quality of our lives, which then impacts our environment. Yet, sometimes we get stuck in cycles that seem to control our lives. How does having knowledge of how our bodies operate and how we instruct genetic selection empower us to make different choices?

BL: Firstly, the new knowledge of how perception controls biology reveals that we are active participants in controlling the character of our health and behavior. Our ability to consciously control our perceptions and environment has a profound influence on our lives, versus the old belief system where we are victims of forces outside our control. Secondly, when we live in the here and now, present all the time, and actively exercise our consciousness to run the show, we create the life we want. It becomes heaven on earth.

SC: You came to understand the implications of this knowledge in your own life. What was your experience?

BL: There was an early phase when I intellectually became aware of the mechanism. I thought, "Oh my God, I can create this magnificent life." The first thing I did was find anybody that would sit long enough to let me tell them about the meaning of the new science. Upon finishing my presentation, they’d look at me cock their heads and reply, “For a guy who says he knows this, your life doesn’t look that good.” That was my wakeup call. While I consciously understood the new science, I wasn't employing it in my life. When you’re not walking your talk, it doesn’t mean anything.

I realized I had to make this knowledge a part of my life before telling other people about it. And the beautiful part was, once I actually acted upon that intention, it transformed my life almost instantaneously.

SC: Can you explain how cells respond to chemical and energy signals?

BL: When a chemical signal is sent to a cell, it must first bind with a receptor molecule on the cell. The coupling of chemicals is always associated with “heat of reaction” meaning heat is given off by the chemical bonding reaction. Heat is disorganized or wasted energy. When a chemical is used as a signal, 98% or more of the chemical’s available energy is wasted as heat of reaction.

On the other hand, electromagnetic vibrational energy can also be used to convey information to the cell. Vibrational or frequency signals are one hundred times more efficient than chemical signals because they do not give off heat when bonding with a cell’s receptor. Energy signals are ultra efficient: single photon of light can hit a receptor molecule in the cell membrane and cause the cell to respond.

Cells process both chemical and energetic information. Survival is based upon an organism’s ability to respond to environmental signals. This is the physical foundation for the emerging field of energy medicine.

Signal-receiving molecules (receptors) in the cell membrane act as an information processor. They are programmable and can read and write information the same way that a computer reads and edits files. The cell’s behavior and gene activity can be reprogrammed as fast as one can type on the keyboard.

SC: Could this be related to spontaneous healing? Is spontaneous healing the result of an 'in the moment' reprogramming of the cells?

BL: Absolutely, the cells can reprogram virtually instantaneously. In my culture experiments, some of the changes can start to occur in half a second (500 milliseconds). If I put 1000 cells in a culture dish and expose them to a broadcast energy signal, 1000 cells will respond instantaneously. However, if I expose them to a chemical signal, it will take longer for the chemical to reach and bind to the cells, creating a lag phase between the stimulus and the response.

SC: Is there standard acceptance in the medical profession that our cells respond more efficiently to vibrational frequency than to chemistry?

BL: There is a common parallel in regard to today’s world energy crisis. For instance, there are other ways of creating energy that are more efficient and effective than burning fossil fuels. The fact is that it is not in the interest of the fossil fuel industry to recommend other technologies. This is the same situation in the medical industry. Since energy medicine does not serve the financial interests of the chemical-selling pharmaceutical industry, conventional medicine has no interest in endorsing energy healing modalities.

"Standard knowledge means it’s published in the scientific journals. Accepted knowledge means what scientists are collectively thinking. Unfortunately, what is accepted as conventional thinking and what has been published represent two different fields of awareness"

SC: Does energy healing exist?

BL: Yes.

SC: Are there scientific papers to show that?

BL: The answer is yes. But if you go to the hospital and ask the doctor about energy healing his answer will be "no.

"It’s not encouraged by the pharmaceutical industry whose funding of research and media campaigns reinforce the belief that genes control our lives, making us victims in need of their rescuing"

SC: But there is hope?

BL: Absolutely. The more people become aware and have the knowledge that they have the power to be ultimately responsible for their lives, the easier it will be for all people to become aware. As biologist Rupert Sheldrake’s Morphic Field theory suggests, the more this information is out in the field, the more it is repeated, the more quickly it will become acceptable.

We went to this concert last

We went to this concert last night. What fun! We all sure needed it. The heavy smoke in the hot air was suffocating all of us. I could hardly sleep last night from it. I woke up at 4:15am and am still awake with my body feeling like it is on overdrive. I really don't know if I can take this smell too much longer. I think about the animals and birds and trees and worms and every living thing being burned or run out of their homes by the fires.

Dear God, please make it rain.

please beloved Gaia, send

please beloved Gaia, send rain where is needed and protect all beings <3

Hi Robin: Master and Florence

Hi Robin:

Master and Florence showed me these affirmations last night. I did not know why until I read your post. Master is saying for you and all to do them "incessantly."

Fire:"Fire is man's friend and is always in its right place doing its right work."

Drought: "There is no drought in Divine Mind. I give thanks for the right amount of rain to nourish these crops or garden or clear the air or whatever."

Master's Blessings,

Robin's picture

This is so amazing Martha.

This is so amazing Martha. Today I heard in my mind for all of us to bless the smoke and bless the fires. Now I am reading this.

Today is the worst smoke day ever in anyone's memory in Mt. Shasta. Numerous businesses closed early. You cannot be outside. Our windows are closed and I am wearing a mask. And I am blessing the smoke. So, I will do these now!

Please, everyone join us!

That is Truth. Robin Alexis

That is Truth.

Master plus Florence = RAIN in Mt Shasta :-)



Just for fun, let's ad Master's recommendations to Florence's affirmations.

Master says say the affirmations four times. Once out loud, second time in a normal voice, third time in a whisper and the fourth time silently, in your mind only. Repeat incessantly!!!

This is working! Let's keep

This is working! Let's keep it up!

I am having such a good time

I am having such a good time with Master and Florence. Master says they are great friends now! He told me he actually likes her affirmations better than his because they are so simple.

He is also telling me that you are so powerful, that if you do these with great intention, incessantly, as he says, you will have rain in no time!

I am also hearing, you could call all your powerful friends in that area and have them do these affirmations too.

Master's Blessings,

PS It just started pouring here!!!

You rock Martha, Robin Alexis

You rock Martha,

Robin Alexis

Thank you for this Martha

It makes complete sense. I see the benevolent reason for the fires now (again!). I will say these affirmations.

Not my will, but God's will.


Rain for Mt. Shasta

I opened Florence's book yesterday and this morning and read these very same words. Now, I know why.

I sense I should also call on Ashtar Command and Mother Earth to help, as well as Archangels Michael and Zadkiel.

I pray for the most benevolent outcome in Rain for Mt. Shasta, Rain for Mt. Shasta, Rain for Mt. Shasta.

Many Blessings, Love and Light,

Thank you so much Martha and

Thank you so much Martha and all. We can do this.

I resonate with rain,

Laotian Rain Drum

I just realized that one of the round end tables in my living room is actually a metal - Laotian - rain drum.

I shall play it for Rain in Mt. Shasta now

Great Pam! I asked my higher

Great Pam! I asked my higher self to play Buffalo Drum!


I have a rain stick!! And it

I have a rain stick!! And it didn't register with me til now, that I've been shaking it every morning and we've been getting rain almost every day this week. Now my thoughts are on Mt. Shasta and California when I shake it!


Bumper Cloud Energy

Sending Bumper Cloud Energy to California to help with the fires!
Perhaps when the clouds bump together they will produce the rain.
Praying for rain also and hearing an indian rain dance in my mind now.

Sending healing energies so they may surround you and all beings effected by the fires.

Martha called me and told me

Martha Norwalk and I have been very concerned for the elephants in the Woodland Zoo. It was only natural that when Martha heard on the radio that Watoto had died that she called me to speak with Watoto. Watoto told us that she did not die just because they were going to move her. She said that she was working on a much bigger cause for elephants and for veterans; both who are not treated well in this country. Watoto showed us that she was leading a herd of elephants who had died in US zoos. She showed us that they were going out a portal that is a portal that Marines, soldiers, and more were going through to go back into the Light. So, this weekend I saw Watoto in this same portal. She is trying to make a point. Are you listening to the elephants? Are you listening to the veterans?

Want to break a habit?

Want to break a habit?

Hasn't worked before? It probably will never work. Give up, already. Habits are to create, not break, and there is a way that works, for everyone! Trying to break a habit creates conflict, a "war on __". No one wants war, right?

There are lots of "how tos" out there, telling you that it takes a certain number of repetitions, or a certain number of days to make a new one stick. Or you can only work on only one habit at a time. Losing weight, working out, stopping smoking or drinking, for example. These take a huge amount of motivational energy. If these work for you, great. If not, ask yourself why you wish to create this new habit. Does it fit in the Field of loving intelligence, in which you live and move and have your being? If not, make it fit, merge it with what's already happening in your life. Here's how:

Dr. B. J. Fogg, a social scientist at Stanford University came up with, "Think smaller than small." Make tiny habits, he says. Want to create a new habit, say you want to see God in everyone? Make it tiny: Affirm, I see God in one person today. That's all it takes to make it so small that you can do it. Want to start flossing your teeth? Affirm, I am flossing ONE tooth, and do it. Want to start a jogging routine? Make it tiny: I put on my running shoes. Get the idea?

How to do a MAP session

How to do a MAP Session

This meditation technique was created by Michelle Small Wright.

Prepare your meditation by being certain that you will not be disrupted. You are to be alone; not even an animal around you for up to 10 feet. Lay down with your arms by your side and your legs uncrossed. Begin to speak out loud.

Ask for the following to be with you. Invite them.

“I invite my Higher Self, the Overlighting Deva of my Health, Pan and the Nature Spirits and my personal MAP team to be present. (If you do not know the name of your MAP team ask them to tell you what it is so each time that you go into meditation you can call them by name.)

Once you invite them in speak out loud and tell them what your concerns are. What is your need? What needs to be healed? The premise is that if you can articulate what is wrong than you are ready for the healing.

Lay there still. If you feel that you are irritated in anyway and feel a compulsion to move before you move tell your Team that you feel a need to move. If they do not remove the agitation then go ahead and move. Then be still again when you can.

Lay there for up to an hour. I usually do this meditation for 15 minutes.

When you are complete in your meditation time, thank all Beings who were there with you and tell them that you are closing the meditation time. Then get up very gently. Drink some water and nurture yourself.

You can do this meditation as you are guided to do it. Just know that even when the meditation is over your healing will continue. Give yourself time between meditations to let your body, mind and soul heal.

Mount Shasta Fun

Last night Bob and I went to a concert. It was hosted by Anton Mizerak and Laura Berryhill. I cannot describe how wonderful the music and the company was. With a view of Mount Shasta out the window behind them as they performed people from as far away as Finland and as local as our next door neighbors were present. We will be going again. There music is enjoyed world wide. You can purchase cds at there web site and more.
