"It is no great accomplishment to hear a voice in the head. The accomplishment is to make sure it is telling you the truth."- Terence McKenna

  • NASA - AI finds another solar system with the same planetary arrangement as ours. Chicago Tribune  Kepler-90 said to be like a mini version of our own solar system. Express 
  • Plants as street lights? Baby steps. Starting with veggies. Independent 
  • Botnik (AI writing tool) serves up misfired Harry Potter magic. Absurd. Delightful! Guardian
    - "I'm Harry Potter," Harry began yelling. "The dark arts better be worried, oh boy!"
    - "Ron looked at the doorknob and then looked at Hermione with searing pain."
    - "Harry could tell that Voldemort was standing right behind him. He felt a great overreaction."

Extra credit and deeper study - Physics, Time, Shamanism and Expanded Consciousness

  • Float Therapy - There are other ways of attaining altered states without drugs. My experiences include meditation and floating. Both allow relaxation and stress relief. In the past year I have had several float sessions. Each was different. Three were incredibly helpful in my recovery from whiplash after a car accident. The headaches stopped and pain decreased in my neck, shoulders and back.
    I began floating to experience a deeper state of meditation and that does work for me. If you are interested and in the Kansas City area, Floating KC runs various specials and offers a discount for a first time session. Mention this blog. There is a current Christmas offer. 12/17.
    What is floating? Floating KCSuggest trying a minimum of two or more sessions. The first session is an adjustment to the new conditions. It is easier to relax after that initial introduction. And the zero gravity massage chair, prior to the float, is fantastic.

Fantastic Physics, Consciousness, UFOs, Miracles, Shamanism and Sacred Vision Oracle Cards

“The gradual recognition that what we think may physically influence what we observe has led to a revolution in thought and philosophy, not to mention physics.” - Fred Alan Wolf, Taking the Quantum Leap: The New Physics for Nonscientists

Fred Alan Wolf on Consciousness and being originating beyond the physical, corporeal form - from Closer to the Truth ...

And from TEDxReset 2011: Quantum tripping on light, time, space and the illusion in being.
Fred Alan Wolf/Dr. Quantum on ESP/Closer to the Truth

Engaging awareness through Shamanism -

Lynn Andrews and Robert Taylor are co-creators of the Sacred Oracle Cards, available on Amazon and on Lynn's site.

Lynn and Robert join me for two interviews. I am so glad to have been able to talk with both of them for Wendy's Coffeehouse 12/17/17 and Conscious Living 12/13/17. You'll hear something different in each show as we have plenty of material to work with. My notes in this post include references and links related to both shows.

Lynn Andrews is known to many for her Medicine Woman series, now in the 46th printing. Now with some 20 books and four decades of work, Lynn has traveled the world and worked alongside a diverse group of medicine women, as such, developing a treasured archive of shamanic wisdom to pull from.

The Los Angeles Times reports, “Andrews’ narrative opens a window onto an aspect of Native American culture seldom explored. Her portrayal of the pre-eminently sacred role of woman and the traditions that keep their ancient wisdom are remarkably accurate.”

In Lynn's own words, “To me, shamanism is about light, and when I say light, I mean making the world a better place. It is an understanding that there really is a power in prayer, truly.

And no matter who it is that you pray to, if you pray with your heart, you can change your own life, choose what happens in your life and how it turns out. I think we have the power to do that."

Sacred Vision Oracle Cards are
also interactive. Read here.
The cards I pulled for the day were perfectly in sync with the content. One of the themes is Observation. Try a sample 3 card read.
The cards I chose are featured in the photo.

So much ground to cover, we hit a few highlights. Lynn speaks about the purpose of the new cards and her collaboration with Native Artist Robert Taylor.

She also emphasizes the importance to her in working with women on self-worth and spending quality  time with the group that is close to her heart: Sisterhood of the Shields.

Robert's artwork deftly interweaves the shamanic element into this deck through color, symbol and metaphor. Each design is capable of triggering knowing beyond the image. I really enjoyed hearing his perspective.

In the companion book, Lynn provides the interpretations for the meaning of the card and Robert addresses the nature of the visual he created. Images and energy merge to combine the two talents in a wonderful fashion. This is not a contemplative deck, rather, it is a catalyst for change and active engagement, an energizer to get the ball rolling on whatever issue is ready to be examined. 

Robert Taylor's work is currently on exhibit at the University of Oklahoma's Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art through December 30, with 60 pieces on display. OU. He was recently profiled in the Oklahoma Gazette. Including more background on Robert's unique painting style, from 1997, read this feature in Southwest ArtFollow Robert on Facebook

When I repeated what I read in regard to the teacher who asked Robert why he insisted on painting Indians, he said the language in that conversation was quite blunt. The teacher asked why he chose to paint "savages". Robert left the class and took another path to acquire his skills.

There are many ways to respond to a hurt, a slight, a slur or an insult and then there is your way, the one that sets you on your journey. As Lynn says, these cards are intended to help quicken the connection to the work at hand.

I appreciate the stark contrast presented in the characters on the cards to the purposeful use of color, enlivening the animal messengers and symbolism. There are hidden meanings and code in the image creations, combined with Lynn's words, the cards inspire introspection, spontaneous knowing and deeper connection communicated within the image. 

In working with the imagery, I have already had a very powerful vision. One of the characters in the cards made an appearance in the dreamtime as I was drifting back to sleep. Funny thing, I forgot it until triggered later in the day by the sight of geese flying overhead.

The vision colors and imagery involved vivid jewel tones and a pose very much like that Buffalo and Prairie Dog. I have been visited by a new teacher. The door is open and the adventure is calling. Am I ready to explore? What is life if not an adventure for explorers? The cards work.

*A note on the church - with the fantastic and highly unusual, illuminated painting. In listening to the Empower show I realize I misspoke, it is in Taos. It was the first place I was called to as I began working with the nightlight energy in 1997. San Fransico de Asis. Very special energy there.

Cheryl Costa Interview, UFO sightings Desk Reference: a whole lotta stats suggest we have ET visitors?

"Well if 70 percent or 218.69 million Americans think the government is not being forthcoming and transparent about this UFO business, isn't it time to present some data?"  - Cheryl Costa - reporter for the Syracuse New Times, co-author with Linda Miller Costa, of the new UFO Sightings Desk Reference 2001-2015.

Interview with Cheryl on Wendy's Coffeehouse. Good news for those who are curious about local details in the USA, the City Directory is in the works. A possible TV deal is also being discussed. No details on that yet.

Some of the links related to this show are highlighted in a previous post: Link. Refresher here on the Pigeon studies and their aptitude for abstract: University of Iowa

  • Can't miss this UFO. Fascinating lights. Reported in Missouri by a hunter. MUFON case number 88249 - UFO Sightings Hotspot
  • Creating a future for humans in space: ASU Interplanetary Initiative
  • UFOs not the source of Saturday night sights. Explanation: Military: CBS
  • That time Steven Spielberg offered to help the United Nations search for UFOs: HuffPo
  • Seeing Ghosts, transition to the afterlife: Washington Post   Study: ELDVs 2014
    Regarding Visions of light and energy surges: Study
The Curse of the Man who sees UFOs: Motherboard/Vice. He started seeing them when he was 8 years old. Here's the trailer. Christo Roppolo has been documenting his experiences on video.

"Until the last breath of my life I will be making sure that people know this is no bullshit," Roppolo said. "From the bottom of my heart: it's all real." - Rent or buy the film on YouTube.

Back to the UFO Sightings Desk Reference, USA 2001-2015. No stories, just charts, graphs and stats. One stat Cheryl and her partner worked out: Only 1 in 42 people reports a sighting.

Couple of notes from the current book:
1. Observers who report UFOs can be flagged in a search by two activities. They smoke and/or they have dogs.
2. Leisure time and temperate weather play a part in the sightings.

Cheryl was a kid when she saw her first UFO. 1965, late August, just before school started. The family, loaded in the car, returning home, still out in the country when they saw a curious object hovering in the sky. It stayed for some 20 minutes or so, silver and round and definitely unexplained.

Having multiple people see the UFO gave it credence. She and her mom talked about it and even though Cheryl says she didn't go full throttle UFO researcher mode at that time, her curiosity was piqued. A second sighting kept the interest alive but it was the downtime in an apartment stocked full of UFO reading material that sealed the deal. Researcher mode fully engaged.

Accolades from readers and other researchers are a testament to the credibility of the work presented in the book, the New York Times had a great piece on Cheryl and Linda.

A plug for Stanton Friedman. Cheryl says his stuff inspired her to dig deeper into the UFO phenom. Why is he so fascinating? Explore - http://www.stantonfriedman.com/

On a related note and geared toward those who are interested in the experiencer research, I've interviewed Kathleen Marden (Niece of Betty and Barney Hill) a couple of times. Most recently with 
Denise Stoner about their book on Alien Abductions: Conscious Living with Wendy Garrett on Empower Radio, The Alien Abduction Files Kindle Edition

County sightings are available for Jackson County, MO and Johnson County, KS. Cheryl notes those and leaves us with a tease... She says "something interesting coming up in the New York Times in the next couple of months." And certainly, we will reconnect. The curious is out there and it's also very much alive and kickin' right here in the heartland.
