Working with our Toroidal Energy Matrix

We each are composed of not only material or corporeal reality but also of "toroidal" energy realities. These are the donut shaped, apple shaped energy matrixes that compose all of creation. They have a center, as with the black hole in galaxies and they radiate energy from that hole up and down and around in circular fashion. Google "toroidal energy" and you will see representations of this kind of energy.

Important to us as living, breathing and co-creating beings is that this is energy that we can direct via our visualizations, breath and Trust and Love.

Our main toroidal matrix stems from our core, or dan tien, about 2 inches below our navel.

When we are not centered and balanced this energy does not flow freely as our core is bound up in one fashion or another; usually with fear and anxiety.

Breathing to our dan tien and visualizing the energy flowing up and down and around and around as with an apple shaped aura, with the seeds being the center, and we come back into balance.

Each chakra has its own energy field and correlates with:

  • 1. root, having to do with belonging; connected in our place to Earth: Red
  • 2. navel, having to do with creating: Orange
  • 3. solar plexus, having to do with self esteem: Yellow or Gold
  • 4. heart, having to do with love, compassion and courage: Verdant Green
  • 5. throat, having to do with will power and truth speaking: Sky Blue
  • 6. brow, having to do with self awareness: Indigo; and, 
  • 7. crown, having to with our connection to the Cosmos: Heliotrope
These seven chakras can be considered to work together in three groups. Interesting enough these three groupings correspond with some wisdom from Africa: Knowledge is in the head, wisdom in the belly and when the two meet in the heart, truth is known. They also correspond with our three brains, our head brain, heart brain and belly brain. How does this work?

Belly brain, Wisdom, has to do with our first three chakras, the marriage of "belonging", "creating", "honoring". This center has to do with our "soul" work, of "why" we are here on Earth and here where we live, relate, work and play. Fundamentally it has to do with surviving.

Heart brain, Loving is composed of the marriage of "honoring", "loving" and "communicating". This center has to do with how with "how" we are here on Earth. Our job, as I see and understand it, is to move our Soul work in such a way as to experience more compassion, courage and Love. 

Brain brain, Knowledge is composed of our will and communication skills, our awareness of self and others and our connection to Source. If our first set of three has to do with "soul" then this set has to do with "spirit". Our connection to Source. 

We are the divining rod that connects Heaven to Earth. 

The most profound and exquisite way in which we do this is to envision each of these three marriages of chakras into separate and beautiful rainbow hued toroidal energy matrixes. Then to merge them  into one magnificent toroidal energy matrix coming from our dan tien. We then envision the energy moving through us from heaven to earth and from earth to  heaven. As it moves through us we come fully into alignment with our personal essence, our passion or purpose.

From this place and with clear intention what we ask for will be given!

What Path to Follow?

Whether a spiritual path, woodland path, personal growth, health, career or avocation path there are clear guidelines for maximum effectiveness.

In a nutshell the guidance is to follow your gut. What feels right!

Beyond that here are some guidelines:

Spirit, or Source, gives direction and will provide guidance.

“Ask, and you will receive!”

Look for omens and confirmation from the Universe (Carlos Castenada is credited in Teachings of Don Juan for this concept)

Find “What is working you”; and, or “Where or what is the ‘sweet spot’?’”

Once on a path does it feel good and resonate with you or “off” and an irritant?

To find Source is to empty oneself of ego, to meditate, find silence within. As Geshe Roach, et. al. write in The Diamond Cutter, practice “Circle Time” (10-15 minutes a day, one day a week, one week a year, or so) where “not thinking” or “emptiness is cultivated”. When one does so Spirit flows in!

Clear intentionality, or asking for something specific is instrumental in getting clear guidance. That question can simply be, “Guide me, I am lost!” Or, “I am concerned about my health, where should I turn”; or,  “Which health practice should I follow, yoga, tai chi, chi gong”; or, “Which Spiritual Path should I take, Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity, Shamanism, etc.?” 

Of course, the “should” is not necessary and even the form of the question is not necessary. Spirit Knows! Hold an interest in terms of “What is Working You”. 

Angeles Arriens talks of how the Appalacians when they meet each other do not ask, “How are you?”, instead asking the more pertinent question, “What is working you?” What is going on in your life that causes you to focus and quest? In yoga my instructor Francis Warner (Health Sport, Eureka) puts it this way, “Where is the ‘Sweet Spot’?” In stretching and relaxing where does your body call your attention? Breathe into that space and relax into it. A release occurs and stretching, and relaxing comes easier. Meditation is enhanced. Silence is felt. Emptiness occurs.

Omens, the "Guru" appear. Holding an intention and paying attention to the “sweet spot” (which could be a relationship, occupational, health, financial, spiritual, etc.) issue will invite Spirit to give guidance. Keeping an open mind, and not, particularly actively looking for guidance, knowing it will occur (this requires Trust and Love) works very effectively. 

The teacher/teaching could be a thought, an insight, a gift, a media focus, a person (even an infant), an animal; what-ever grabs your attention. The World is full of guidance and information but only a few have to do with the “right” path for you. We are all inter-connected; All One. 

“Confirmation” occurs when you are pondering the omen and are given a second and even third indicator that the “way” you are contemplating or practicing is the one for you at this time. Spirit nudges us to move along the path towards Personal Integration and Higher Consciousness. Our, Life on Earth, Destiny, is to become At One in Consciousness!

And, one of the confirmations is; “Does it feel right?” When choosing a path do things and experiences seem easier? Is it joyful? Do you get results? Maybe not right away but are you given insights and guidance along the Path? If it doesn’t feel right, if it doesn’t resonate with you, even though your partner or social/peer group is following a path, find another.

We do “know” even though we often ignore our very best inner sense of rightness of being!

Lately I have been meditating and experiencing how powerful "attitude" is in our lives. Such a powerful energy, regardless of what the attitude might be!

The expression "cop an attitude" ( I first heard in the 60's when working as a research assistant related to some training in the prison system. Inmates and staff used this expression to describe the event of some attitude or another grabbing ahold of some one. A powerful "mood" that moves one to say and do things that they would not ordinarily do.

How often I see this in my life and work. How often I experience a mood moving me and my experiencing of "copping an attitude".

Increasingly I perceive this phenomena to be central to our imbalances! To relationship issues, particularly. Jealousy, envy, fear, anxiety, anger, depression, desperation, panic; you name the emotion it can be "copped" and run away with the experience. Take over what is happening. No wonder that the Ancient Greeks thought of such experiences as the very Gods and Goddesses inhabiting our personas and running them. The emotions are not of our own, but of some energies outside of ourselves running through us! This link is worth looking at. Worth studying if some detail!

The wisdom of seeing such powerful emotions being of the very Gods and Goddesses is important.

Emotions need to be approached with caution, wisdom, reverence, respect and ritual! To not do so creates real mischief in our lives and loves! To do so allows us to channel and move such energy effectively and positively.

When in our interactions we are "moved" by such emotions it is easy to let them run-away with us. Our flash of anger towards a mates inconsideration, or, whatever, can easily lead to any number of disastrous actions or regretted words. The wisdom we are coming to is to not "indulge in such energies". They can easily take over and bring about a loss of realization of "just who is in charge".
Is it our true self, our higher self, a wounded soul part, or, one of the powerful emotions themselves?

Complex considerations and to give thought to these considerations can help us to come to some more resolved sense of balance. Can help us "choose a better thought, word or action".

The importance of time outs can not be understated! They are essential to reclaiming our sense of self in our daily interactions.

The essential task here is to come back into the now. It is almost (and possibly exactly so) that when we split off and cop an attitude we are opening pandoras box and allowing many extraneous influences to move through us and to consume us. Past wounds, previous belief systems, fears of the future, anxieties about what-ever call on the Gods and Goddesses and they come into us with relish. Then, it is not us that is on stage. Instead some other sense of extended historical self.

When we do come back to self, through mind-ful-ness and through cultivating awareness of self in "Now", then our better self, our higher self, guided by Source, comes to our truth. Then, and only then, can we approach the situation that ignited the attitude with due consideration.

So often I experience and observe "moods" move into Attitudes that can create great mischief and disturbance. They can also become passions that direct and channel our energies into great achievements. Still, it is worth coming back to Now, regularly for guidance and clarification of intent and intentionality. My last blog clarifies the importance of intent in our lives.

Cultivating mind-ful-ness allows and enables us to spot or become aware when an attitude takes over. Then we can more easily step out of the attitude and back into the now for the clarification and guidance so greatly desired and needed. This is the practice! This ability brings about healthy relationships and the greater manifestation of ones desires.

When our intentions are clear and we walk in trust and love, our manifestations become cooperative with the Multi-verse. Spirit allows and cooperates in the unfolding of our reality.

When are intentions are muddy or we walk in anxiety and fear, then we get muddy results at best, and continue to manifest fearsome experiences!

Reading into these realities we can then see that each of us are somewhere along a continuum. On one end we are mastering the manifestation for what we intend, and on the other, just the opposite.

We can have clear intentions and walk in trust and love (The Grace Groove); or, we can have clear intentions and be in fear and anxiety (The Rut). And, we can have muddy intentions but still trust and be in a Grace Groove. There we will get mixed results. Or, we can have muddy intentions and be in The Rut where we will get little of what we desire and often lots of what we do not.
I like the analogy of driving in traffic. It is clear that my intention is to get somewhere, say work. I set off a little late and find I am experiencing some anxiety. Sure enough, a school bus stops in front of me and the “stop” sign goes out and I need to wait. Ok. But, still anxious when we get to a stop sign to turn onto another road there are three cars lined up. Anxiety increases. Then on 101 I get behind a fire truck convoy. Oh boy! 
Then, I realize: “Heh, I am creating these blocks.” Take a deep breath, blow it out and say to myself, “I will get to the office in plenty of time to prepare for my client!” Several positive thoughts later and, lo and behold, the convoy turns off and there is a big opening in the traffic. I hit every green light and “on time with some to spare”.
I love these experiences and find it easier to “shift gears” more readily as time goes on.

Guidelines for clear intentionality:

Watch your thoughts: words, beliefs, actions and attitudes.
Move from “trying”, “hoping”, and “wishing” to
“doing”, “experiencing”, and “having”.
In spiritual language these becomes prayers of ascension as opposed to prayers of wanting or needing. They convey Trust and Love.
We can experience or want! Want conveys and implies “not having” and accesses the profound sense of emptiness that so many of us experience and manifest.
Catch yourself thinking and believing negative thoughts and “change” these. 

Utilize the concept of “future probability”, e.g. “Every day in every way I am increasingly experiencing . . .” What is probable has so much more power than what is “possible”.

Chose a better thought, feeling or action!
Be kind anyway.
Practice Generosity.
We get what we give!
“The Love we get is equal to the Love we give!”

Practice Mindfulness:
Come back into Grace (Walking in Trust and Love) via breath and Gratitude.
Even when we are feeling really bad, there are wonderful gifts to be experienced.
Depression is a state of consciousness where we can move more actively through the grieving process! Giving thanks and breathing into the discomfort of the body, awakens it to the process of grieving!
Anger is a wonderful way to express via body movement, the bound up molecular sensations; to free them and release them!
Reducing the hold that depression or anger have on you frees ones ability to both form clear intentions and move into trust and love.

We as humans are so incredibly gifted! We have All of the resources we need to change a problematic Reality to a One rich in expressiveness towards healing self, other and Gaia, itself!

Where does the blame lie!

To Whose Feet Do We Lay The Blame!

If necessary, let us consider:

1. I have not, nor have so many other Americans been very pro-active to end the un-necessary violence from weapons.

2. Our Government Officials have been bought off!

3. The Gun Lobby and Military Industrial Lobby has bought them off!

4. Guns are big business:
   a. They make lots of money 
   b. Retirement funds invest in such companies
   c. Many public employees benefit from such funds
   d. Most don't seem to notice or care from where the funds come.

5. The American Culture is a Culture of Violence:
    a.Peacemaker was the name of a Colt Revolver that "Won the        
    b. America has more deaths by guns per capita than any other          
    country in the world.
    c. We have been at War in one region or another for most of our 
    political existence! Strong Military Industrial Lobby!
    d. Great profits have come from such wars. Weapon and
    munition companies, The Pentagon, etc. all lobby for more 
    money and power. Congressman and other politicians are 
    bought off!
6. We all like our creature comforts and seem to be lost in our
    bubbles of complacency: Until some "senseless" act of violence
    wakes us up!
    a. few requirements about who gets what kinds of guns
    b. many adults and teens leave guns laying around without
    adequate protection from mentally ill or children.

Or, is it "senseless"?

I am reminded of the old saying: "Do as I say and not as I do!" Although we all know that we will model ourselves after behavior more than words. And, when we are traumatized (PTSD) what we tend to do is repeat the circumstances of the trauma so we can figure out how we could have lost our purity and innocence.

When our leaders commit violent acts against innocent citizens of other countries what makes us think that our own citizens won't create violent acts agains innocents in our own country? 

As above, so below. This adage holds true in organizations of all sizes; from families to countries.

Conclusion: We are all culpable. 

The question is; who will bring about the needed change, Government, Lobbies, Corporations or The People?

You guessed it: The People! There is no other option.

On the Threshold into The Age of Aquarius!



On the 21st our the sun will enter ( what ever that means) into the Sign of Aquarius. Every 26000 some years a new age occurs. We have been in the Piscean Age, with the Piscean attributes of divisiveness. So I discovered by attending to this youtube movie:

And, the qualities of Aquarius? Namaste: The Divine Spark in me acknowledges the Divine Spark in you. No need for gurus, we are all divine and in this age we will be awakening to this Truth!

Very cool.

At 10:05, so the same video reports we will cross the equator of the Galactic Rift. And, that is the precise time in which we get the biggest blast from the Black Hole. What does this mean? Good question. The Mayan Elders I have watched, read, listened to say that this is when we (Gaia) get a tremendous down-loading of Spirituality. and only a few will retain the information for more than a few minutes.

Maybe, but, we have never experienced, in the history of modern man, such an event. Perhaps a great number of us are more prepared to accept the Truths that will coming to us. 

This is an Age where amazing Spiritual awarenesses are being shared. The Law of Attraction:,

The Diamond Cutter, wisdom of the Diamond Sutra as shared by Geshe Roach:,mod=19&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#hl=en&tbo=d&q=the+diamond+cutter+book&stick=H4sIAAAAAAAAAGOovnz8BQMDAx8HixKXfq6-gZlFTmWBUVJimKBtD8f2jbf6BVYFM0za5zd1EQBns5VTKwAAAA&sa=X&ei=ro3HUPTSC8ybjALcwYCwCg&ved=0CKUBEOkTMA8&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.&fp=9e5a97ecf0eac3e8&bpcl=39918873&biw=1187&bih=661,

The Course of Miracles:

The list could go on.

You, my faithful readers, can probably name at least three different sources of enlightened information coming our way.

From my own studies I have been able to "choose a better thought", "be kind anyway", exercise "gratitude" and "generosity" more and more.

So, the judgmental nature of my socialization has diminished. Trained to "diagnose" I have even learned to not indulge in that form of professional power-tripping.

No need!

As one who writes this blog and for those who read it you will know that what I am experiencing more and more is the Field of Love. Fear and Anxiety are becoming mere signals to pay attention. We needn't harm ourselves and others by such indulgences as "addiction to adrenaline".

Far more fun to enjoy people as they are, even when they are offensive. Not to enjoy the offense but to understand that everyone has their story and compassionately attending to their story, to "see" them, lets them become less attached to their own destructive thoughts, beliefs and actions. Witnessing allows for easier change.

And now, 12/21/12 at 10:05am comes upon us.

So, why am I celebrating on the 22nd and not on the 21st.

Two reasons:

       First, I want to be at home and able to "receive" more freely.

       Second, I wish to celebrate on the 22nd our having "stepped over the threshold" and; into The Age         of Aquarius!

Well, what if? What if this all just a bunch of crap? Could be yet I experience, as a sociologist, therapist and person, that when individuals share in beliefs the beliefs tend to be actualized.

Heh, noticed lately how many people are sharing wonderfully happy, inspiring, organizing, sharing and caring via the internet?

It is happening, isn't it?

Autumn Equinox 2012: Visualizing and Empowering Change

Most powerful and accessible energy awaits our utilizing at this time in history.

Here are a few links to stress the powerful forces at work: 1. About Solar Flare-ups, on the increase:

And, 2. About major Earthquakes on the increase:

Should we Fear?

Yes, but only to become better prepared!

Should we be aware of the bigger picture?

Yes, of course, and that bigger picture has to do with our being almost in the center of the Galactic Rift, which the Mayans predicted would happen 12/21/12. That event and its veracity receives lots of debate and speculation, some wild claims from many (perhaps me?) and stunted and short sighted belief systems from others (due to "sciences" attachment to facts based on only a recorded history that only goes back, at the most, 1000's of years).

The Mayan Calendar goes back 26 thousand years, plus a few hundred or so, and records cycles of planetary movements. They were our first astrophysicists.

Interesting that about 26 thousand years ago the first discovered means of communicating via symbols happened with the finding of cave paintings in Southern France

It can and has been argued that this time period was about the time of the advent of Civilization (for better or worse).

Can it be that our passing through the Galactic Rift again might portend another impressive transition of Humanity into a New Age?

Stands to reason, at least by this seeker of knowledge.

My contention and practice is to consider that not only will the massive earth and solar events happen but Spiritual Events will also happen. The Energy from the Dark Hole and from Dark Matter will increase our higher chakra centers and invite "knowing-ness".

We are already aware of "Indigo Children", also referred to as "Homo-Gnosis" (not sure where I heard this term . . . interpretation would be "the human that knows". For a detailed list of current books check out Amazon's site Indigo Child books.

Enough of the preliminaries.

The 21st of September is our Equinox: daytime hours are equal to night-time hours. Throughout history it was a time of celebration.

For me it is a chance to take stock of the  next 3 months, leading to 12/21/12.

During this time I wish to meditate, pray, create ritual, visualize the World I believe to be "right" (in Balance and Harmony), to align different Karmic lives (past, present and future) with the desire to find a greater sense of Peace and Well-being. Truly the more we are at Peace in Trust and Love the more we generate such experiences around us: Witness the Wisdom of The Diamond Sutra and of The Law of Attraction.

My intention is to be, especially during this time, as clear and, dare I, pure as is humanely possible to have a greater effect via prayers and visualizations.

On the night of September 22nd, here in Eureka, I will be conducting with the able assistance of experienced shamanic journeyers a ritual to generate, align and direct through "clear intention" visualizations towards Balance and Harmony.

At this time we will "Surf the Zuvuza"; That is, the Spiritual Energy manifested by the Galactic point and space in time we find ourselves.

Should be fun and might well be beneficial, if not collectively then certainly personally!

Love to All!
