Greetings and Salutations One and All! I do hope that you all have had a wonderful week and will continue to do so! We have an amazing guest for you this week! This man is by far the grandfather of all we know about “Crop Circles”. He has authored many books, he had toured the world with his lovely wife and spoken on this topic all over the world! We had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Andrews and he graciously accepted to speak with us on the show. WOW! What an honor! I have followed this man’s work for many years! I practically grew up with his work! So we are extremely excited to be able to speak with him!

You can find out more about Colin on his official website at www.colinandrews.net

Here’s a bit more information on our amazing guest!

Colin is best known for his research into the crop circle & UFO subjects since 1983. He provides the only continuity between the past crop circle research era and the present, along with his friend and colleague, Busty Taylor.  His long view of both the genuine phenomenon and the human-made phenomenon provides unique insight into the subject. His research results indicate the intelligence behind the phenomenon is interacting with both crop circle researchers and many of the people who make the hoaxes.

He has publicly stated since the late 1980s, that the phenomenon indicates a future period of human chaos. The period indicated, supported by current trends, can be changed with human awareness. He also believes there are serious eco-political implications and that the future direction of the planet is at the center of the phenomenon.

In the final analysis Andrews believes the phenomenon is challenging people to a higher level of consciousness.

Some native elders agree with Colin’s assessment which is supported by the 2012 Mayan Prophecy. His latest book, written with his wife, The Complete Idiots Guide to 2012 covers this connection.

Colin’s 25-year investigation continues with growing urgency for openness and honesty in government and private research, respect for divergent opinions, and co-operation between investigators in all areas.

Colin is an accomplished professional photographer, who has been invited to show his photographs in art galleries across the United States, including the Philadelphia Art Museum and the Cortland Jessup Art Gallery in Provincetown, Cape Cod. One spectacular photograph of Princess Diana and Prince Charles on their honeymoon was presented to the Queen and to this day also hangs in the Mayors Parlour at Romsey, England – the home town of Prince Charles uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten of Burma.

Colin Andrews is an electrical engineer by profession and was a principle official in British Regional Government during the 1970s and 80s.  He became involved in the crop circle mystery in 1983 when he saw an arrangement of five circles in a wheat field near Winchester, England. Intrigued by the engineering aspects, he began investigating the circles with Pat Delgado, a retired NASA engineer and Busty Taylor a light aircraft pilot.

During his years of research he advised Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s cabinet on the mystery, supervised the largest crop circle surveillance project in 1990 named “Operation Blackbird,” and amassed the largest data base in the world on the subject. Operation Blackbird was an effort to film a genuine crop circle forming. It was sponsored by BBC and Nippon television and was authorized to take place on Ministry of Defense land and with British Army assistance.

In 1996 Colin was asked by Laurance Rockefeller to provide information for the Rockefeller Initiative.  The Initiative provided the United States government with the “best available evidence” regarding UFOs with the purpose of opening public dialogue. Colin continued to receive funding in 1999 from Laurance Rockefeller to conduct a two year investigation into crop circle hoaxing. He put together a team who studied the construction patterns of man-made crop circles that had been commissioned by various commercial and media interests. In addition, members of his team infiltrated several circle-making groups uncovering new information regarding the level of anomalous phenomena experienced by the hoaxers while making circles.

Using man-made circles as a base, Andrews studied the formations that appeared in England throughout 1999 and 2000. His research data brought him to the unpleasant conclusion that 80% of all the circles he studied showed “unassailable” signs of being man-made. The remaining 20% showed all the signs of being part of the genuine phenomenon he had encountered 20 years earlier.

The publication of this data was largely rejected at the time. Today, the majority of honest, unbiased researchers have come to believe the truth of Colin’s assessment.

Colin and his wife, Synthia have traveled around the world meeting with indigenous leaders, seeking to understand the larger picture of the crop circle phenomenon.

Greetings and Salutations One and All! I do hope this blog finds you all healthy and rested after a very powerful holiday season! Lots is going on right now in the world and it’s been a doozy for most of us riding this wave of change! This week’s solar eclipse completed the cycle of moving energies of the lunar eclipse (subconscious) to shining it onto the sun aspect (consciousness) so we as a whole should be gaining. We will continue the process of purging which will feel like a surreal form of emotional vomiting in waves uncontrollable thoughts which may not be what you are truly feeling or flashes from childhood memories which you may or may not have already dealt with, this is not you losing your mind this is the energies we are currently transmuting as these eclipses and the energies they bring help us through this process. I will be doing several energy alerts in the coming weeks so be watching for that. Sierra will be talking about the planetary alignments in this time frame right now.

Now onto today’s show….Miss Sierra Neblina will be joining us for tonight’s show. To find out more about our guest, visit our guest page Here

To hear Part I Click Here!

Tonight we are in Part II of our interview with Sierra, discussing her current experience as a Braided Walk-In. This topic is not something that you will find in the everyday mainstream of walk ins. They have not done this in such mass in thousands of Aeons. In fact when I first encountered a braided soul, I was not sure what I was seeing energetically. I could explain it, but was told that it was not physically possible to hold two souls in one body. The first time I encountered this was through a personal friend. Who was raised in Alabama in a strict Jehovah’s Witness home. She was the victim of severe sexual abuse from her family members and had other psychological issues as a result of those incidents in her life and she was working on overcoming the trauma of it when we met. Several years into her recovery she came to me and during one of my teaching sessions, a voice which was not her own came through to introduce himself as Otowal, a being from another dimension which resided within my friends body. Now when I scanned this energetically what I saw was two distinctly different energy signatures inhabiting the same body and genetic structure but with their own unique signatures and personalities. I conversed with this being on several occasions since that initial introduction, while I searched to find out more on this topic. As the weeks passed, I began to note an intergration process which she was undergoing. I was not sure initially if this was a possession, a split personality which can mimic similarly these signatures, or something which I had never seen before. I continued to explore this person all the way through to total intergration. This is not the same as a walk in intergration nor an overself merge, this was a totally unique situation. I was told by this other being with my friend that they have been together since birth but the time for him to take over was at hand and that he had memory like being awake and that my friend was fighting this intergration greatly and that he enjoyed my teachings very much that I was more on track then I understood. So imagine my surprise when Sierra was telling me that she too was a braided soul. She actually gave me the name of what I had seen within my friend. I was covered in chills from head to toe when she said that and yipped out in glee! I had not been losing my mind this is actually there! whoot! I was thrilled to say the least, lol. So I did some further research which explained basically about braided souls.

What I found was that there is VERY little information out there on this topic. It is so old that it’s new again~ and thus why I am excited to be among the few who have the opportunity to share with you some of my personal experience with this and another who is currently undergoing her intergration processing. The basic idea for the braided soul is efficiency mainly. Two souls are better then one in terms of bringing in needed information for the current changes and to assist the one who is doing this to accelerate in soul expansion more quickly.

Again, when you read a braided soul, there are two very distinctly different energy signatures. But if you were to scan them you would see they are wrapped like a helix or inner spiral within the spiral and they are inseparable. They occupy the same space. Now there are many who would not believe this, as it’s been said it’s not possible, whoever is saying this really limits what the Creator can accomplish in this time of now. They actually used to come in braided on a far more regular basis when the Earth was new, but only for this time change has the practice become more prevalent.

How to tell when you are reading a braided soul:

1. Split personality disorder / schizophrenia- This will show energetically as a short or chemical imbalance on the physical levels. You can watch as thoughts morph like a shape-shifter almost before your eyes but nothing stays solid, you will see the personalities and experiences change as the person speaks to you but the energy signature of that person never changes.

2. Possession- Possession is very distinct, you will see a dark energy, a heavy energy, constricting almost wrapped about the persona and through out their physical beings and usually will see the soul imprisoned or bound energetically in some fashion.

3. Walk-Ins- Standard- Two souls agree that they will “switch out” at some point on the life span timeline, they create a trauma or illness to facilitate this process in the physical. In this manner, there is one in the driver’s seat and one that hangs out in the auric field basically the back seat of the human vehicle and they intergrate that way this is not the same as a braided soul.

4. Merging of High Self to Overself- Again this is only one energy signature.

5. Braided Souls- Two individually different souls sharing the same space. You see two distinct signatures intertwined together.

Braided souls stay together and share experiences together from birth. When the awakening period arrives, most times the prevelent soul has no idea they are braided with another soul. This comes as a huge shock and there is a period often times of disbelief that this is happening, that they are losing their minds or becoming skitz. They have no clue as to what is transpiring and the intergration period when both steer the ship together can take a lifetime for some. It is one of the most challenging scenarios a soul can choose here in the school of life.

From a healer’s perspective there are meditations which can be done to assist the process along, there are also crystals which will work fairly well with this on a phsyical level, intuitively i get rainbow obsidian will help greatly and possibly a nice rhododite or moonstone.

I am hoping to get a lot of questions tonight from you guys about this topic! It’s truly a fascinating subject to me, most will have some difficulty wrapping their heads around it, you can always google braided souls and see the few articles which appear, they are a bit different perspective but basically state the same stuff.

I want to thank you all for stopping in and we hope to see you tonight! www.blogtalkradio.com/illuminationsoflight!

Our Own Petitelion Has Some Wisdom About How To Deal With Loneliness!!!

 By: Lianna Giovannoni

      It is highly improbable that anyone ever would decide to wake up one morning and declare to the universe to God “Let there be loneliness! Please God bless with the miracle of loneliness or ask for loneliness as they wish upon a star! Loneliness is not an item on anybodies “bucket list”( things they want to experience before they die) No loneliness is not one of those things that people find and are willing to die for or take an oath for ,devote their lives to. It is never included in a small child’s silent prayer before bedtime. There are no monuments, walls, plaques, etc. that have been erected in honor of loneliness, no encouraging or patriotic or devoted slogans for loneliness(Give me Loneliness or give me Death!LOL).Loneliness is relegated to stories and poems and those are referred to as tragedies or tragic poems.(Dictionary meaning: a medieval narrative poem or tale typically describing downfall of a someone. or a story,poem or play that ends in some misfortune., a serious drama typically describing a conflict between the protagonist and a superior force (as destiny) and having a sorrowful or disastrous conclusion that elicits pity or terror , the literary genre of tragic dramas, a disastrous event ( calamity misfortune). Yes, there are poems and stories etc. that use lonely or loneliness to describe something like the look of a tree or the sound of bird, like ” the only thing on this remote mountain were just clouds and lonely pines, or the only thing that could be heard in the dark was the lonely call of the owl”. The use of lonely or loneliness as a descriptor is probably one of it’s most positive attributes.

     Loneliness is worse than sad. Sad is an integer to the formula of loneliness, such as sad+(bleakness/desolate/alone)= loneliness or sadness x 2=loneliness….in other words lonely has sad in it. It is a darkness that eats you from the inside out.

     Alone is not lonely…Alone just means that you do not have company. Whereas lonely is an constant ache of absence, one that even if you are surrounded by people you feel isolated, alone, bleak, desolate, imprisoned by some invisible wall. Loneliness lays dormant in everyone of us waiting for the right catalyst to wake it up and begin to thrive and grow. There are an infinite amount of catalysts out there, as many as their are feeling creatures and beings in the universe. No one or no living feeling, thinking, being or creature is immune. Although some seem not to suffer from it’s grip as much but they do not have a complete immunity. I’ve even seen pets express loneliness and sorrow, like when on owner dies or when another of the household animals die or leave. I, personally watched with my pets this , we had a male and a female Siamese cats that were pretty much raised together, and when the slightly older male passed away,the female literally cried, would not eat, and even pulled out big patches of her own fur out. She would go each day for weeks to each of the heat register looking for him (for the last 3 years or so of the male cat Robert had a touch of arthritis and would lay on those to loosen his stiff muscles in the morning or when it was very cold weather) she would look for him and she would see he was not there, she would look up at me with such a sadness in her eyes and in her body language and she would let a sad wail that sounded almost like a young woman crying out in loneliness, despair. It was heart wrenching, she would not let anyone console her or touch her.

     Loneliness can not only come from loosing someone thru death, or absence but from a perception that no one can understand or relate to you or that you don’t fit in for some perceived belief or story that you told yourself that somehow you are different or less than and that no one is there that wants or would desire to share life with you experiencing all of life’s ups and downs, no one to share the joys and sorrows, no one that would or could understand you or would share or care the same opinion as to what you consider significant. That there would no one to make memories with that you can share together later no one to enjoy the little things in life with. Sometimes when there is a loss of a person you life such as a life partner, husband/wife or a best friend that you shared all of those things with for a long time, when they are no longer in your life due to death or a breakup because of that loss and the grief that comes from that it may seem to you that you will never be able to find anyone to fill that space in life the void left from those kinds of loss can create such a deep grief that it creates a wall of despair and an over the top feeling alone. Because of that deep loss because of the grief a very pervasive and unique type of loneliness ensues and nothing or no one will be able to change that sense of aloneness the grief of the loss the darkness the sadness that is gripping you, except for going thru your grieving process and the healing effect of time.

     Loneliness can also awaken and grow when you feel so different from those around you that you convince yourself to believe that there will never be anyone for you. You can experience and create a prison of loneliness when you perceive that an impenetrable barrier exists between you and everyone else due to language and/or cultural differences or you moved to a new area where you don’t know anyone or if you suddenly get ill or disabled or anything that you perceive as a barrier between you and other people.

     First of all like I mentioned before, alone is not lonely. A lot of times, alone is what is preferred,wanted and sometimes what is needed. It is important to be comfortable with your own company and to be confident that you are a complete whole individual rather than feeling that you are not enough or that you are incomplete. Sometimes alone is necessary for your mental and/or physical well being. Alone gives us the best way to get perspective for yourself to gain clarity on life decisions , be alone with your thoughts gives us time to meditate, process things or events, gives the opportunity to quiet the chatter of your conscious mind to reduce stress, connect with your higher self or with the Higher power, to ground yourself,or just to have sometime to not be distracted or influenced by others to just to get to know your true nature without any input from others.

     Back to lonely now….First of all I want to say “YOU ARE NOT YOUR EMOTIONS YOU ARE NOT YOUR STORY! AND ALWAYS BE PRESENT!”. Having made those statements I want you to understand that I will be clarifying those shortly, so just keep them in your mind to the side. It will come together just bear with me thank you. What I am about to say can be applied to any emotional response but we are discussing lonely at the moment so if you find yourself asking the question “what about sad, or anxious just substitute the appropriate word for the word lonely okay? So here goes nothing!! Lonely is an emotion that you tied to the story you told yourself or bought into from someone else that your ego told to respond with to with the current situation that you seem to be experiencing at the present time. If we realize before you respond to the ego’s advice that all the emotions is just a list of emotional responses that you have available to choose from as the emotional response to the situations that you perceive you are experiencing as you move thru each moment in your life. Yes Virginia “YOU CHOOSE WHAT EMOTION YOU WANT TO FEEL in response to your perception of the reality of the situation that you are experiencing ” not the other way around. I know right now most of you are saying to yourself (I can’t help what I feel, I control what I feel they just happen, they just are! Yes, I know it may seem that way, because most of us for most of our lives our ego and all the other egos that you have been around throughout your life from the time of your birth, the ones you learned from and emulated as you were growing up have led you to believe (thru no fault of their own) and reinforced over and over one of the great human untruth list is that “We are at the mercy of our emotions” That they own you, they are calling the shots as to your emotional responses. Well guess what? That is the human ego’s ploy to get you to keep you believing that it is real so it can continue to exist and be in control keep you trapped by fear which creates resistance to soul expansion and to create a prison, to put a barrier to blind you to the truth so to speak and continue to buy into the falsehood, the false perception of the reality of your true nature, to state that plainly… to continue the illusion of “That you are at the mercy of your emotions and the story you tied them to, that you don’t have a choice in the matter”! Now, I’m not saying that people and situations, and old programs that you bought into for one reason or another don’t make it hard to choose a more positive emotional response. Let me just briefly give you a side note to this. I want you to understand that with the aforementioned “old programs that you bought into” It is nobody’s fault that you bought into that there was some wrong doing or error in discernment or that you are “stupid and should have known better!”, that is not it at all. It is just one of those human challenges that all of face so that we learn and grow and evolve. It is built into the system of the human process of growth. No one is exempt, no one has the knack or talent to not buy into old programming, because when you bought into them they were necessary for your survival at the moment but once they are loaded onto your hard drive it is difficult to know when or to remember to delete them. Know this “EVERYONE IS CHALLENGED BY THIS AND HAS THE SAME DIFFICULTY AS YOU IT IS JUST PART OF LIFE!” so “DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP FOR IT PLEASE”!!!! It is just one of those things that is a standard catalysts for all beings to challenge us to learn and adjust and change things in the present so that we can have the opportunity to expand our souls, evolve as spiritual beings having a human experience. Bottom line,it is just part of life!Just like when we grew to adults from being children the average person’s bones lengthen and grow larger, and in puberty we get hair in places that we didn’t have as children, it is just part of becoming, well so is the program buying into thing. Again you are not your story nor are you your emotions. Anyone who tries to tell you or convince differently ….This is what I have to say to them….QUACK! Yes quack! Check this out, your emotions are yours! Yes folks, those puppies are yours to command! Yes, you too can choose what to feel as a response to stuff! Like I said before things, situations and people may make it more difficult to choose a positive emotional response, but with some effort and practice you can do it. As with anything that you learn, especially when it comes to changing old habits, old programs that we have used forever that really in the present do not serve us anymore it takes a minute to become successful at right away. Be patient with yourself do your best to remember to make the effort to slow yourself down, take a breath and as you do this stop the auto pilot decision making process and stop and take the time to think and ask yourself,”How can I stay in the present and choose a best emotional response for what I am truly experiencing now?…not based on what you responded to a similar story from your past that ego is trying to convince you still are but, on who you truly are from you true nature, from your high self, now in this present moment.With the intent of doing it for the highest good for yourself and the highest good of all. It does get easier as you go along and each time you remember to do this the closer you come to do it effortlessly and with a 100% success rate, and really you will be surprised that it will happen easier and quicker than you think! You may be asking yourself,” well how does this apply to loneliness? ” well, I will tell you. When you sense it creeping in and ego begins it’s existence saving dance running it’s jib in your head, trying to convince you to buy into it’s sales pitch. Take the time to look at the story or thought processes or beliefs behind why you are leaning towards choosing lonely as your emotional response, why this emotion is tied to the story why the ego is trying to convince you that this is the response that you need so desperately(from ego’s perspective) to respond with, why this present situation triggered ego to know it is time to get it’s licks in, why ego needs you to respond this way, what is ego’s motive and how this particular? response helps ego to maintain it’s illusionary existence? Ego is like when you were a kid and you had an imaginary friend that keeps sabotaging and causing trouble and because no one else can see them you get blamed for it’s pervasive behavior. Ego like the imaginary friend is forever trying to convince you that it is real, like Pinocchio before the fairy godmother got to him-he is not real and never will be , he will only able to fool you into thinking it is real and that you are the puppet! Well it is time to take back your throne be the ruler of your reality! It is time to pinch yourself and wake up and see that you aren’t the puppet and ego the puppeteer that you are the master puppeteer and ego is the wooden puppet! You are the creator and the master and ruler of your emotions and ego, they are to do your bidding, they are your subjects and not subject to them! When you are suffering with loneliness or that the situation that you are participating in is one that perhaps the all time best scenario for loneliness to thrive and grow and in the present moment you are not able to see a way out from your current perspective reality, that there could no other choice for you. Stop and without hesitation but with complete faith that no matter what things seem like it is truly an illusion do not believe it for one second!!!!!Tell loneliness to get out of town take a long walk off a short pier, take a hike! Turn and face it and see that it is just an illusion. Find your voice… use your imagination and create for yourself a much better reality for yourself by pulling yourself out of the illusion and create the new true perception of reality in your mind. Realize that emotions and stories come and go. Nothing stays the same, things change all the time, nothing is static. Even if it seems to you that it is the lowest worst moment of loneliness of sadness in the world and that is no way out of it could never ever change…Stop, breath, look at the story behind all of that fear, all the loneliness that you tied to that story, or belief/thoughts that aren’t you , are not in the present not your true nature, just not real and pull yourself out of your illusionary perspective and change your perspective to one that serves you better in this present moment, even if it is to incorporate this thought, It won’t be like this forever it will change because nothing is static. Maybe Close your eyes and hold on to that little bit and release the emotion(loneliness) as the emotional response to the present perspective of the situation . Say out loud if you want or just think it, it works either way, it is your coloring book your crayons, I Release it , let it go – then look at some other more positive way to perceive the situation as to why you are experiencing this based purely in the present moment from your true highest self change it to perhaps as an example: Maybe if I see this as something as this situation isn’t about choosing this to be bad but rather a gift of the opportunity to find a better way see this situation as a plus rather than a negative, an opportunity to gain than a loss, that it is for you not against you. you could change this into you have the opportunity to become a hero and to receive blessings by sacrificing and experiencing a little discomfort so that someone else will get an opportunity to get the chance to expand their soul their skill sets raise their vibration by getting a chance at to allow someone their chance to discern and choose to be compassionate, to recognize that one of their own needs their help , to motivate them to learn to be a better expression of God having a human experience, by motivating them to choose to become a more loving kind person, awaken them to their true nature, more of a true human being and discern and choose love and compassion recognize it is the time to give and transform themselves and receive blessings and grace which raises their vibration which raises the vibration of all humans. For your small sacrifice you not only do you get to be a hero and give someone a chance to receive blessings you get the chance to raise the whole humanity but you get to receive blessings and grace and to raise your self up which also does the same for all. So the point is look how much can be accomplished, look at the scope of the effect of just a small change in the way you choose to see things, change your perception of reality and your emotional response to things. It is so a win win win win situation for such a small amount of effort that it is just mind boggling for me. What a small thing to have to experience or that you have to put effort to accomplish so much.

So by changing in ways like this, taking that pause that moment, to slow down take that breath and adjust your perception of reality, let the old programming that no longer serves you go and eliminate that the loneliness story is tied to and choose a more positive emotional response to the present situation you become a big hero and everyone gets blessings.

     There are many surface ways to help you to accomplish these things to help with the changing your perceptions of reality of situations that you are experiencing with loneliness and it’s fertile ground for growth. Yes, surface ways, like joining a class that improves you, your body, your mind like yoga, or a class at your local junior college or something that you would like to see if it is something you might be interested in, there are many avenues for this such as local city town or rural community centers that offer adult classes at night or weekends etc. for things like arts and crafts, exercise, or dance, music, Internet and computer, parenting, golf, yoga and so on. These are good ways to break down some of the perceived barriers and to connect and meet people with similar interests. This a good way for humans to help prevent that fertile ground for loneliness. Some other surface ways are to join a spiritual group, or join a church or religious group of your own choice and persuasion, or create your own group of your choosing such as rock hunting, paranormal group, science, book reading, or whatever subject matter that floats your boat because I guarantee you aren’t alone in your interests. If you are sure how to find those people for the group[ you want to create, here are some tried and true suggestions for that issue. Advertise on your local bulletin boards in your local grocery stores etc, community centers, church and meeting centers, community colleges and adult education centers, freebie newspapers , or on the Internet sites like Facebook and Twitter or Crisis type sites. Volunteer for various charities in your community. If language is a barrier go to your local community centers and adult education centers or churches or spiritual centers and take a class in the pertinent language and from there you will find people with similar language barriers as you. If it is cultural thing, learn about the culture that you are living in, expand your being with knowledge and truth and with the knowledge you can understanding and release the fear and encourage tolerance in yourself and others or teach others about the truth of your culture which also helps others to release ignorance and fear and allows tolerance and compassion an understanding to grow. This not only helps to ward off the loneliness thing but it raises the vibrations for all. If you are disabled or are not able to go out and about, create a group that again is something that you are interested in or create a social network group of disabled or inside bound people or if you are elderly and are homebound etc. this social network group is applicable also, you can connect thru phone, or the Internet or something like Skype which is free thru the computer and you can have several people be able to meet virtually without ever leaving there residences. If you are able to each get an Internet video cameras for your computers you can actually see each other. Nowadays those kinds of things are fairly inexpensive and there are various federal, state and local programs that could help you. Don’t give up if you want to help yourself to choose something more positive this is a real good tried and true way to begin that process.When we take the initiative and realize we are the creators of our realities and do these little things it reaffirms to the universe what you want and need it is like an active prayer, it reaches into the Creator’s toy box and pulls out and brings to you the thing you want that is for highest good which with that intent brings the highest good of all. It brings the real magic that is in us by our birthright as the children of God. What it does, to put it another way, it allows you to connect and have the opportunity to find and share with you fellow human beings common interests and it changes the parameters of the situation and brings in the fertile ground for growth for the positive, breaks down your perception that there are barriers and replaces the barriers with clear smooth avenues to accomplish what just recently you perceived as impossible. This will make the growth of the possibility of loneliness less of a possibility to happen. I’m not saying it will eliminate it altogether at this moment of our existence but it will take it from a high and impossible to get over mountain to in the least a small hill that you face and if enough of us take this perspective it will a some point become a mere speed bump. It is however a step closer for all of us one day to make something that has been highly improbable to eliminate from the human experience to be eliminated within the human experience. All it takes is one person to tell or show one person and it will catch on and once again you can know that YOU ARE A HERO!

      So to recap for you, “You are not your story nor are you your emotions. Become aware and notice the story, the thoughts, the beliefs, the perception of reality that loneliness (or any negative emotions) that you have tied to those stories or beliefs. Release it. Take the moment to pause and take a breath ,and stop and think and decide and become aware change your perception of the reality of the situation, be present and choose the best positive emotional response ( and the list of all the positive is available for you to choose all the time with no exceptions!) based on who you truly are in the present moment. Play with them and discern the best one that serves you highest good and the highest good of all. Then congratulations are in order because you are now on the best and fastest road to becoming a hero in your own right to making loneliness(and if you apply that mind set to sad, despair, etc it will do the same for those) all those painful soul expanding and suffering causing catalyst for humanity evolving cease to exist in this current human experience(at minimize them enough that they are speed bumps instead of impossible to climb over mountains). For sure it is a fact it help you when it is your turn to experience those painful moments, you will be able to move thru them with the greatest of ease and grace and receive blessings for yourself and all humanity.

Greetings to one and all!  In this life we basically live in two worlds(multidimensionality aside) outer world and inner world . One is very obvious, just look around you. Notice the familiarity of it how well known they are. Notice that you can put a name to everything trees, grass, hills, people, sky, buildings, cars , also notice you can say what each thing is, for ,  their cost, how long they last , who owns them, how attractive they are how unappealing they are, what happens at the end of their days.Look at the people , observe how you can categorize them men, women, children, old, young, tall, short, friends, strangers, familiar, unfamiliar some you can even name them, dark haired, light haired . well dressed, groomed, casual, scruffy.   Notice how easily they fall into categories, assume labels become understandable almost predictable. The world of your basic five senses is for the most part, clear, comprehensible one, full of sights sounds, tastes , smells and sensations that all define for most of us on the most basic of levels what it means to be alive.

The inner world is the other world , equally at times vivid and integral on a basic level what it means to be alive, but, it is for the most us not as easily described or understood. This inner world of thoughts, emotions, imagination, dreams and the mystery being that is always with you that you can’t see in this inner world, the one that sees both worlds, observes everything you do, think, imagine and dream, every decision, every story every pause, everything on every level. From time to time even though  this person is always with you and always observes both your inner and outer worlds, we forget their existence like when we are fast sleep, or comatose(LOL), are absorbed in a task such as reading a real good book, or painting  or drawing a picture or creating artwork or something that takes all our focus  , watching an all absorbing movie, or listening to a moving story or piece of music or speech. This mystery person always re-emerges the moment we begin to think our own thoughts once more or when we wake up from sleeping or the coma (again LOL!) when we come to ourselves again. This mystery being if you haven’t guessed yet is (drum roll please!) our very individually assigned the one the only “I” ,” the me”,  the”self”,  “the mind”, the”numero uno”.
Think about it , how seldom do we stop and reflect upon the existence this elusive “I” , “the me” . Who is this person? Where is this person going ? Undoubtedly this person is experiencing life, but what actually is life, this strange, weird, scary,frustrating, at times infuriating, magical, surprising, joyful, wondrous, invigorating, safe, simple, complicated, long, short, confusing, clear thing which expresses itself through us, and for most of  the time balances us very uneasily between joy, happiness, contentment, clarity and safe and sadness, angry, confusion, fearful. What is it for? Does it have a purpose and if it does what is it? Can we know it, understand it? Can we know our role in it? The more we think and ponder these questions, the more we become aware that to answer the first of them is to answer all the rest as well. Because to know who we are is also to know where we came from and where we are going, and to know what life is and what, if anything is it for , knowing who we are  we will know what our role is or how we fit into it. Each one of these questions boil down to the one eternal question that has been asked since humans began , “Who am I?”  This eternal question from which all other existential questions come from, and on which they depend on for their meaning and importance. Since the dawn of our existence we have pondered this basic question of “Who am I?” and all of its subsequent variations and periodically some strange individual  appears and seems to know the answer , their answer though is usually strange or sort of cryptic, extremely metaphor like , they answer symbolically, or puzzle, riddle or parable like. then they give us an enigmatic set of techniques or practices through which we can gain the answer and  then when we ask for clarification on what they say or what the techniques or practices are for with regards to answering “who am I?”  then they seem to always respond by  implying  or eluding to, with a very confident  clear and concise answer of , that we can find the clarity that we keep trying to glean from them or  that we try and outright demand or threaten them for (in some cases kill them to get) that we can find that clarification within our own self, that “the answers” are all within us. We are thus being told over and over from those strange individuals that have appeared from time to time, that the answer to the eternal question and their subsequent variations of “Who am I?” is not a  formula that can be just handed to us by somebody else but a direct personal experience. It is very individual in nature. When you come to think about it what else could the answer possibly be, since it is we ourselves who are what we are.
Having said this, we have established that we have a very good understanding, familiarity with the outer world, and a lot more reference materials and education on the outer world as opposed to knowing or understanding of the inner world of thoughts , dreams, imagination, memories, emotions and the “I”, the “me” the self, the mind we have reference materials most of them come from other individual “I’s” other individual self’s which again like the answers from those strange ones can be guide line like but is lacking their completeness for the individual minds they can give you generalities  which is helpful to answering the question but since the answer to the eternal question is completely individual the reference material or practices have to be a helpful starting point for the answer but to completely answer it those starting points have to be customized to the individual by the individual . Although you may think that the question will never come up for you but, I am here to tell you that on some level in one of its millions of variations you will at least ponder it at least once. Really you can trust me on that, really you can!
Now that I have rambled on you are probably asking yourself  “,what the heck is this all about? What is her point?”  Where is she going with?”, and I say to those questions ….They are extremely valid!   What my point is that if you should want to know the answer to the eternal question and all of it’s variations and any subsequent related inquires that you might have along with changing or healing any part of who you are right now or improve add to who you are, which you  would have to know who you are first in order to change heal improve add to who you are. The answer that is tried and true and proven and the only real way that any one has been able to find is MEDITATION! MEDITATION!MEDITATION!.  Don’t get upset I heard that heavy sigh loud woe so please Before you walk away give me a chance please to explain just a couple things that you maybe aren’t realizing about meditation that there are as many ways to meditate as there are answers to the eternal questions!!!!! Their are as many ways to meditate as their are and have been people!!!!! There many books pamphlets, articles web sites, etc etc. that show us meditation and the various modalities of meditation but like answers to THE QUESTION they will always have to be customized to you by you!!  Not only will you be able to get clarification and some answers there is so much more that it can accomplish. I like to say that there are a billion reasons to meditate and not a single reason not to !!! I didn’t say that you might just find what variation works for you that you are comfortable with that takes care of what you need and that there are never difficulties in trusting it . What I said is there is not a single reason not to. It is about desire and perseverance. Ask yourself would you like to experience life but never really know who  it was who experienced your Life? Think about it, like anythi ng it is a choice.  Go ahead weigh the pros and cons , what you stand to gain  having the opportunity of your lifetime to gain all the possibilities and abilities that YOU are as opposed to knowing a very small  and limited view of you and your possibilities and abilities available to you to not know who experienced your life, in my mind  really the effort is way worth it..
The following will be one way in the billion ways to meditate that you can do that I found and many, many others found worked very well and can be used to accomplish a lot  and to understand and clarify and heal and know you. Remember the option is always there to tweak and adjust, customize for you.
I have found that the use and various different ways that breath can be used with meditation is very significant and enhances the benefits of meditation and in many instances is quite helpful in accomplishing what your goal is , what you it is that this particular form of meditation that you chose you felt would be for you. Breath work is always  a good thing both mentally and physically. You can’t live without breathing!!!  For those of you who have meditated for a long time you know what parts of this you know well . But the rest of this meditation just please roll with me people !!! ;-) The following includes breath work along with meditation, don’t worry it is not complicated you can do it , you do it all the time !!! LOL! First find a place where you won’t be distracted or disturb ed by phones, T. V. kids, dogs etc. (note: after you get the hang of it and that is an individual thing, you will be able to meditate with a few of the distractions, just like anything the longer you do it the more it becomes part of you, automatic in a way)  Wear comfortable clothes nothing restrictive you don’t want to be distracted because you can’t breath or something is pinching etc., get comfortable either sitting with your feel flat on the floor or laying with your legs out in front and just left to fall to the sides just let them just naturally relax. Have your back  completely supported. If this position makes it difficult to stay awake try the sitting position. You want to relax not fall asleep, where you are going is somewhere in between. For my tech’s out there It is called Theta state that your brain enters into.  Once you are comfortable etc. I like to pick a general subject of something that you are wanting work on in yoursel f such as fear ,anger ,sadness, frustration , you get the idea. Then after you’ve picked this general subject and what the area it of you or your life  then find a saying,  a phrase. a word that is a opposite energy or vibration of your subject such as courage, safe or joy ,forgiveness, contentment, abundance, and keep that positive focus on that opposite vibration, you can repeat to yourself if you like but just take a moment and hold that within you and focus on a clear picture of how you would like it to be with regards to the issue hold the energy. Holding the opposite positive vibration to your issue it cancels it within your subconscious and rewrites old programming that is no longer working for you. It is not something that will happen the first time it will happen after a time, they say it approximately 21 days to change behaviors, note the word approximately it can happen sooner it can happen later , but it will work. It will depend a lot on you and findin g the niche that works for you. Most likely it took you a while to acquire the behavior or the programming has been running for awhile before it was recognized it wasn’t working. it may take a moment to change it.
Now that you have your positive mind set close your eyes place your hands on your lap either palms up or down or facing each other just as long they are comfortable and not tensing. Now I want you to find the center of your head, find the top of your ears and draw an imaginary line from both sides of your head from the top of your ears and where they meet at the top of your head is the center of your head straight down to the center inside your head. Tech note this is where your Pineal gland is in your brain, and this is where they believe your imagination, psychic abilities, metaphysical and religious experiences are enabled here on a physical plane your the  part of your body, brain the allows that ability flow thru and be experienced in this physical form. Once you have located that destination the breathing starts, take one deep breath thru your nose that starts in the lower part of your lungs your diaphragm and let the air com e in from the bottom of your lungs fill from there up  . Blow out thru your mouth opening your throat and your mouth as if  as if the large breath you just took of fresh air will go to every corner of you collect any stale or left over useless negativity and when you open up your mouth and throat and expel the breath it cleansing your inner life force, blow all of it out of you; once again using your diaphragm on the bottom to push it all out so that the next breath in will be unblocked by the sludge of the left over negativity, it is like cleaning and sterilizing that takes place between batches of beer in a brewery. The vats are cleared and clean so that when the next batch is put in it is not clogged or contaminated by the last process of fermentation. After that cleansing breath take another deep breath thru your nose but this time try and hold it in for 9-12 counts then blow out, do three of these breaths as you do them focus on relaxing your muscles in y our face , jaw , tongue ( let the tip of the tongue just touch the roof of your mouth) , neck , arms , shoulders, back, internal organs, buttock, thighs ,legs, feet, as you breath, and hold the breath and exhale feel all the tension and stress and worries etc just flow out of you like a plug being unplugged in the tub it just releases into the core of the earth to be recycled and transmuted to neutral energy to be used again and revitalize the universe and Mother Earth and creation, if you want you can get creative and imagine a drainpipe, or a chute that is attached to your first chakra and the pipe or whatever extends about 6 inches of out on both sides of your body and runs down to the core of earth which is a big molten ball  or pyramid whichever resonates for you ,of iron that uses and cleanses and transmutes the energy to neutral so that it can be used in a clean manner. It is not wasted or having a negative or  pervasive affect . It clear s the path and allows the positive energies to flow in and take your issue and change it unencumbered by obstruction. If you use this simple breath work as a sort of ritual every time you meditate it will become a trigger for your brain so that you are able to achieve that meditative state much easier, like Pavlov’s dogs, after a time even in a noisy room or distraction filled place you will be able to perhaps achieve that state of mind of meditation or at least give you the ability to bring those times where you are overwhelmed and your feelings are becoming overwhelming, your blood pressure rising, perhaps fear is coming in, frustration etc. this will trigger your body in such a way that you will have an easier time of keeping a handle on those feelings ,and it help  you  to feel and be in the drivers seat rather at the mercy of the overwhelming feelings the stress that may be coming up at the moment and it helps to release certain chemicals to help your bod y to cope with the stress much better so our discernment when comes to the choice of our reactions to the external stimulus, it helps us to cope and choose balance in the times we find our beings overwhelmed by life. Now that you’ve relaxed with the deep breathes ;the next breath just go back to your normal breathing in and out thru your nose, notice your breath how it feels as you draw it in , follow it down into your diaphragm imagine the breath as a golden cleansing revitalizing  and renewing healing light that as it flows in it spreads out throughout your whole body down your arms an legs fills your head, every cell infused and surrounded by this clean vibrant life force charging every fiber and cell. Feel the tingles flow in as you follow the breath of life to the various parts of your body allow your simple act of breathing to help you to remove and clear any stuck energies or negative influences problems, obstructions let it renew and reset your inner being the real you with the outer you the mechanism that holds us and allows us all a spiritual beings experiencing being human to balance ourselves between the left and the right sides of our brains so that we return to our default positions where we function at our optimum. We become grounded and balance so we can see clearly where the issues are and remove and replace that which is no longer working for us for the highest good. Now I want you to imagine either steps that either you walk from the front of your head where you have been doing your preparation for your journey and feel the feeling of moving up and back to the center of your head, some use a tunnel that goes there other steps, escalators myself I think of Willie Wonka and his wonkavator where it was an elevator that can travel up, down, sideways, long ways, back, forward as you move back notice where you feel that movement in your body like when going up in an elevator, even if you don’t know by seeing with your eye s you still know whether you are traveling up or down , for me I get the feeling in my chest in the center. Notice that feeling and it for me is an affirmation that my visualization is doing the trick , when you realize that you can “know” that you can move your being to different places internally it opens up many possibilities such as if I can do it within and the physical reality of your body structure does not prevent movement then logically neither could the outer layer that separates the  inner and outer worlds. (This is just something to ponder.). Now that you’ve arrived to the center of your head with your positive energy or affirmation it is time to decorate your safe place. Yes, safe place! This a place you can go to that you are always safe and protected, nothing or no one can get in unless you want it there unless you invite it or them. This is the home base of  the control room whatever you would like to call it, where the high self hangs, the “I” goes when it is in default optimum position. This space can look or be decorated any way you want, it can be a luxurious room full of pillows or it can be a hammock under the palm trees next to a water fall or it could be something out of a magical fantasy, it is your “I” place the place of safety and healing it is the place where you merge the inner with the outer, a place of wholeness a place where you become the best expression of the divine expressing it self, centered, grounded, knowing, balanced , a place that we can find or ask for the clarity and/ healing. From this perspective we can look down thru the chakra’s, the dimensions of the body and look where perhaps requires clearing of blockages or where negative energy has attached and needs to be removed, this the place to release the positive energy or affirmation that you focused on before we started our journey that you brought with you this the place that you can release that positive vibration the one that carries the opposite peaks and valleys in it’s vibration to the negative vibration that the issue that you want cancel out or rewrite the program that no longer is for your highest good or the highest good of others. Take that positive vibration release it to flow throughout you entire being after it flows out thru every cell in your body imagine it flowing out your hands and finger tips and out the top of your head like a water fountain and wash over your body and aura and as it does see it clear all the sludge in and thru your aura and outer body as well as inner , see it repair and fortify any holes or dark murky spots in your aura and inner being, (note*if it helps for visualization purposes put a color or “look” to this positive energy that you have released such as I like to see it a clear bright sparkling fluid that have a gold and silver sparkles shimmering thru it sometimes I change the color of the sparkles , I use my intuition or feeling to determine its color or look, find what resonates with you at the moment, there is right or wrong to how it looks it is up to your own imagination, whatever you feel you want it to look like it is yours so it will do it this is your place .) For those of you that have been practicing meditation , this particular type of meditation even though it seems very simplistic or basic , it is but it is very powerful and there are many ways this can be used from this perspective there are many higher levels of meditation that can enhanced from this perspective. It is a good and easy way to approach meditation it allows us to be creative and gives us the choice to be active or passive. The universe does work very well with simplicity and visualization . We are bombarded with so many complicated and intense practices and situations in every day life that this very simple meditation practice helps us to release the misconception that it is difficult to connect with ourselves like only the elite with years of practice and devotion can or are deserving of the tools that we were created with. Understand this we don’t need to earn anything to use what is already ours, Remember “ask and you shall receive” , Keep it simple ; don’t get me wrong all those ancient practices are wonderful but this is not only very effective it’s fun and most people do not have the resources or the time to go through years of study. Most people that really could use meditative practices the most that need to be able to become whole are people that are not able to process or learn the more complicated forms those who simply do not have the time to do the more intricate practices or techniques. Surprisingly enough I have been keeping track of the success of this form as opposed to the more complicated forms and this way really holds it’s own it is as effective besides that it gives you the basic tools to allow those who perhaps the more intricate techniques or practices are too much or see m to be overwhelming and perhaps may make someone feel turned off from meditation because its seems to complicated for them, this particular type is something that they can feel comfortable with due to simplistic structure. Remember there much beauty and strength to simplicity. Less obstructions easier to access less chance for us to get in our own way. Even after all these years of practicing meditation and its many forms many modalities I still find this simplistic elegant creative straight up form quite useful and effective and I use it quite often. There are many options that you can use to build upon this type to add to it , direct it to for more specific goals, more room to customize to make it individualized.
Now back to the process, after release of the positive energy sit for awhile in your space and play with it if you like change it around, redecorate if you want. Sometimes you may want to get in there and clean it out it is up to you , listen to yourself your gut only you can decide what you need or want. When you are ready beginning to come back slowly by moving your fingers hands and feet and move up then slowly open your eyes and come back to the here and now, shake your arms get the blood going . Thank the higher powers or the universe and take a deep breath like you did with the beginning with the cleansing breath, then call all the energy back that you left past present and future see it as filling up a bucket full and when it is full pull the cord and feel it dump into the top of your head and flow down to your toes and down to the tips of your finghers and feel it fill you up and recharge, it is like filling your gas tank so that you are good to go , You’ve just had a tune up an oil change and now a full tank you are ready for life!! I hope that this has touched and given encouragement to at  least one person to begin to meditate to make this something that you do regularly like brushing your teeth, washing etc. because it is as important to our well being as taking care of our bodies, Thank you for listening, Love and Light to you all,xox Lianna

Greetings and Salutations One and All! Tonight we have an amazing show for you! Tina Fiorda and Tilde Cameron have written an amazingly comprehensive book for the current times and those who are awakening and searching for clarity!  The truly amazing thing is that this book was completely channeled through a Ouija Board!  Now most people have not such great experiences with this tool because it is rarely understood it’s ability to open vortexes and people are ill-equipped to handle the doors which are opened and thus just about anything can come through the door at that point. These two tell of a much different experience. Their experience is of love and light and amazing Truth. Their message is the message of Spirit and in this you can be assured. I have read through their book and it is the message that many are now receiving in the awakening process.

The book is called, ” A Book of Insight: Wisdom from the Other Side ” . It is set in question and answer style much like Neil Walsh’s, ” Conversations with God”. The questions they ask are poignant and well thought out and the answers are simply amazing!

These two ladies are a dynamic duo and will blow you away with their down to earth styles and straight forward thinking!

For more information on these two amazing ladies visit our website at http://www.illuminationsoflight.com and click on guest star pages or our update section which also has the link.

Do not miss out on this amazing show tonight!

In love and light,

Greetings and Salutations One and All! Tonight we are proud to present the one and only amazingly wonderful Oberon Zell Ravenheart! This man is truly a joy and you will only be blessed to listen to our show tonight at 9pm MST on blogtalkradio.com/illuminationsoflight. This blog entry will tell you alot more about this truly gifted and inspiring individual and what he’s done and who is he is. We hope that you will join us tonight!

Oberon Zell-Ravenheart is a true modern-day Wizard, and a leading Elder in the worldwide magickal community. Oberon is a modern “Renaissance Man:” a shaman, psychologist, metaphysician, naturalist, theologian, artist, sculptor, teacher, author, animal handler, explorer, showman. He also serves as an ordained Priest of Gaea (Mother Earth).

As a child, Oberon had a natural affinity for the creatures of Nature and spent much of his time alone in the woods. His early attunement to Nature helped to sharpen his natural psychic abilities, and he has worked with many animals—both wild and domestic—over the years. He was an introspective child who loved to read—particularly natural history, mythology, science fiction and fantasy. He went on to earn college degrees in sociology, anthropology, psychology, education and theology. He has worked as a Headstart counselor, school teacher, social psychologist, school counselor, college professor, artist, journalist, author and publisher.

Inspired by Robert A. Heinlein’s 1961 visionary science-fiction novel, Stranger in a Strange Land, Oberon co-founded the Church of All Worlds on April 7, 1962, incorporating it legally on March 4, 1968. He currently serves as Priest, Primate and President. Oberon is also a Priest in the Fellowship of Isis, and an initiate in several different Traditions of Witchcraft and Paganism. He has created and participated in many interfaith projects, including the Council of Themis, the Council of Earth Religions, the Covenant of the Goddess, the Universal Federation of Pagans, Bay Area Pagan Assemblies, the Dictionary Project, the Papal Apology Project, the Pagan Summit, the Grey Council, and the Sonoma County Pagan Network.

Oberon’s work has played a major role in the unity of the magickal community and in reclaiming the spiritual heritage of pre-Christian Europe. In his award-winning magazine, Green Egg (founded in 1968 and now online), Oberon was the first to adopt the words “Pagan” and “Neo-Pagan” to describe the newly emerging Nature religions of the 1960s. In 1970, he developed and published the thealogy of “deep ecology” which has become known as “The Gaea Thesis”—the premise that all life on Earth comprises a single vast living Being, known as “Mother Earth,” or “Gaea” to the ancient Greeks.

Oberon met and fell in love with his soulmate, Morning Glory, at the Gnostic Aquarian Festival in 1973, where he was a keynote speaker. They were married April 14, 1974, in a spectacular public Pagan ceremony. From 1977 to 1985 Oberon and Morning Glory lived in a 5,600-acre intentional community in the mountains of northern Califia, creating a rural homestead and magickal retreat center under the aegis of the Holy Order of Mother Earth (HOME). In February of 1979, they created and led a ritual with a number of Pagan leaders to celebrate the solar eclipse at a full-scale restoration of Stonehenge in Washington State, a transformative event attended by over 3,000 people.

Oberon and Morning Glory founded the Ecosophical Research Association (ERA) in 1977, and their research into arcane lore and legends resulted in the “Living Unicorn” project, begun in 1980 and culminating with the leasing of several of their authentic living Unicorns to the Ringling Bros./Barnum & Bailey Circus. Oberon and Morning Glory also traveled around the United States and Canada exhibiting their Unicorns at Renaissance Faires. Continuing to delve into fables and mysteries, in 1985, Oberon organized an ERA video diving expedition to Australia and New Guinea to solve the ages-old mystery of the Mermaid. These stories and more are told in full in his encyclopedic A Wizard’s Bestiary, with Ash “LeopardDancer” DeKirk (New Page, 2007)

In 1987 Oberon led a pilgrimage and research tour of ancient oracles and archaeological sites throughout Europe and the Mediterranean. Other legendary journeys have taken Oberon to Peru, Hawaii, Alaska, Costa Rico, and back to Australia. In 1999, he visited England for the final total solar eclipse of the Millennium, which he celebrated with local Pagans at an ancient stone circle in Cornwall.

Oberon is the author of many published articles on history, Gaian thealogy, magick, shamanism, mythology, anomalies, archaeology, cosmology, and related topics. He has been interviewed and quoted extensively in many newspapers, magazines, and books on New Age religious movements, magick and the occult. His best-selling first book, Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard (New Page, 2004) is an essential basic reference work that will continue to serve as a resource throughout the reader’s lifetime.

In 2004, Oberon created the online Grey School of Wizardry, of which he is Headmaster. Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) educational institution, the Grey School is non-sectarian, welcoming teachers and students of all faiths (and none at all). Accepting students of all ages over 11 (with some into their 70s), the Grey School offers a complete Apprenticeship program, in 16 Departments of magickal practice, at 7 levels, culminating in a Certificate of Journeyman Wizard. Around 340 classes are currently available, taught by a faculty of 30 highly-qualified teachers. Social aspects include student Houses and Lodges, Forums, clubs, merits, awards, challenges and other activities, a campus tavern, a student-run quarterly magazine, and summer camp Conclaves held in various locations. The School’s motto is: “Everything is alive; everything is interconnected.”

With many years of theatrical experience, Oberon is a popular workshop presenter and an accomplished ritualist, creating and conducting rites of passage, seasonal celebrations, Mystery initiations (such as the Eleusinia and the Nashville Panathenaia), Earth-healings, and other rituals, both large and small. With Morning Glory, he wrote Creating Circles & Ceremonies: Rituals for All Seasons & Reasons (New Page, 2006)

Oberon’s artwork has illustrated various magazines and books since the late 1960’s. His favorite art project, however, is his ongoing sculpture series of Gods, Goddesses, and mythological creatures, presented as “The Mythic Images Collection.” His masterwork is “The Millennial Gaia”—a visionary representation of Mother Earth.

Oberon and Morning Glory now reside in Sonoma County, California, where Oberon currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Sonoma County Pagan Network.
