Dear Ones,


I want to talk a little about the energy that’s manifesting in the world right now, around the issue of the Boston Marathon. I should say at the outset that my first reaction to the news was along the lines of what I’ve been hearing – ‘smash and grab’ by Team Dark, a well-planned attempt to flood the world with fear, and wrench from us our power as true human beings of New Earth. Last night I scanned a prediction that this was an experiment in social psychology, preparatory to setting up a police state.

It wasn’t till something happened yesterday that I finally understood about the Boston Marathon.


Omens had been popping up all day long – my cat was acting like she had spring fever. She got into a fight with a friendly cat next door, came in covered with dust and leaves. When I left to do errands, my car made a funny sound. Never does that. A hawk sailed over the road, quite low, lingering to take a look at me. There was a gathering of energy in the air – tense, heavy, roiling energy. Intuition told me, something was up.

So here’s what happened in my world as this dark energy was rolling around on Earth: Sun energy was low in the sky; getting on towards sunset, and I had just made the mistake of going to Walmart to pick up a few odds and ends. You may have noticed how the metal in the shelves and ceilings and the half-light of the neon bulbs in the large stores interferes with our pranic column energy?

So, predictably, it was while I was in Walmart that I experienced a telepathic ‘smash and grab’ attempt, from which I recovered my heart energy pretty well, but with a trace of residual anger tainting the pure energy of my heart. From the point of view of the other people involved, ‘my’ dark energy had caused one of them to get into a fender bender. I’ll get back to these varied reactions in a moment.


I’ve been attending a country church lately. There’s a great band there, and I do love inspiring music. Also, the pastor, comes up with incredibly insightful Sunday sermons. He’ll mention some news about a person in the community. Then he might talk about something that’s been making headlines … and these days it’s likely to be something worrisome. And he’ll go on to a phrase from the Bible. And I’ll sit there wondering, How in the world is he going to tie all this together? Then as he gets to the end of the talk, all of a sudden, he makes the whole thing clear. It’s a little like being struck by lightning. Benevolent lightning. I’m tempted to try his technique in this blog …


Last year, right after Tom Kenyon and the Hathors came up with the Aethos sound meditation, (1) I was playing it and listening with rapt attention, wondering how the human voice could have come up with this river of cosmic sound. As I listened, I had an unsettling vision, all the more so because I’m not used to it … I never have visions.

I saw, very vividly, and felt, very clearly, a group of Souls rising slowly upward, through a murky sky. I couldn’t see Earth at all; only this dark, foreboding sky, and I derived my sense of direction from the downward pull I felt, like gravity.

This group of Souls were in the deepest state of unconditional love. Soaring upward, against the downward pull, because of the overwhelming buoyancy of the love pouring from their hearts. It was they who were all together singing the Aethos song, and it was the song that was lifting them upward. I was really happy to be there with them, rising with them, albeit near the bottom of this upswell of love.

Then beneath me I saw a beautiful woman. The outline of her form was like that of the woman in the top row, second from left, in this collage of art by Greg Spalenka (2): ..

But she was on fire, and crying out in anguish, over and over again; reaching up piteously towards the group of rising Souls, as in this artwork by Greg Spalenka, if it were flipped so that the woman faced upward: ..

I felt her pain. I didn’t know what to do. For a moment I was one with her agony. Then I realized there was nothing to do but feel the love, as the others were doing. This was the only answer and the only action: feel the love. And then I woke up, as if from a deep dream. Wow, what an experience!


Lately I’ve been going through Judy Satori’s “Mastery of Mind” course (3), little by little. Last week I was on Day 1, and I came across a track where Judy Satori and her friend Danielle channeled Sekhmet, Egyptian goddess of war and healing. The power of the channeled words hit me like lightning! Then later I learned that Eileen (who used to write the Matariki blog, and later wrote the Sacred Spiral of Light blog) talks about her as having the qualities of lavender and lightning. (4)

So now if you’ll bear with me for a moment I’ll try to tie all this together. I’ll bet you can tell where I’m headed.

The feeling in the world right now, that expressed itself at the Boston Marathon, and is repercussing globally because of the media, is the energy of Sekhmet, which is setting loose the deepest fears of humanity so as to purify and uplift our hearts. I’ll admit it feels like ‘smash and grab’ by Team Dark. And we can take it that way, that someone (or something) is after us, trying to kill us.

But in fact, we have a lot for which to be grateful regarding the Boston Marathon event. All those brave Souls who had come to Earth agreeing to participate in the event – the brothers who placed the bomb, those who agreed to be injured or to give their lives, the runners, the police, and the crowd of onlookers … I’m so thankful to each of these courageous people! They have brought to global awareness the imminence of a very important process. The fires of transformation are purifying and cleansing all the shame, guilt, anger and fear we hold in our second chakra, and the fear of death held in our first chakra.

Right now, we’re all immersed in the same unsettling energy. We’re all feeling this ‘smash and grab’ feeling from time to time. But we each have a choice how we take this feeling: We can feel the fear, blame someone or something else for it, and try to fix the situation by catching them and doing them in (killing them).

Or, we can feel our fear of death (the beginning of a first chakra clearing process), then turn our attention to our hearts. Allow our hearts to open. Sense what’s going on in our bodies (5). Trust that this bonfire has been set so that we can rise to the tranquil, joyful experience of the Aethos. We can trust ourselves to Sekhmet’s fierce compassion.

(5) About physical sensations of chakric clearing: In my case yesterday afternoon, after the ‘smash and grab,’ I went and parked at a church on a hill not far from Walmart. There were children playing basketball behind the church. And in the direction I was facing, sitting in my car, a breathtaking view of the distant mountains. I centered by meditating on my pranic column, and then checked round my body for sensations. The chalice of my pelvic region began to feel very solid, very full, like a heavy weight, anchoring me to Earth. Then I felt a familiar frothy, bubbly sensation in my pelvis … like tiny seltzer bubbles popping and fizzing. Aha! I thought — this is chakric clearing! Of course, not everyone feels this “snap, crackle, pop!” sensation during clearing. But everyone feels some physical sensation; and that’s a good thing to notice. It can help put a perspective between us and what is coming down.
