Have you ever been in a dire situation where you were sure you were about to die, yet you could do
nothing about it?

The Portland Highway Miracle
Completing our business with the Portland gallery, HD and I head north to Seattle. Construction det-
ours us to another route, but this freeway is also under repair.  We must tow our RV in the
left-hand
lane
with traffic moving in both directions, separated only by a row of concrete blocks.  After awhile,
the freeway starts to  curve sharply to the left, putting most of the traffic ahead of and behind us out
of sight.

As we drive along at sixty miles an hour,  a semi-truck suddenly pops into view rounding the curve a-
head of us. It's in the
same lane as we, heading straight at us!  We have only a few seconds to deci-
de what to do. Concrete blocks sit to our left. Other cars race  o our right and behind us. The semi is\
in the  same situation__
there is no place to go! I feel the adrenalin erupt when the semi draws close
enough for us to clearly see  the driver's face__  as chalky and terror-stricken as our own.  We can't
run or hide from this and we can't fight it. Only a miracle can save all of us.

"
Hell! There's no place to go__ we're going to crash!" yells HD.

Totally convinced we're about to die,  I no longer fear death due to earlier NDEs__  I'm willing to go if
this is my time. But I still fear for HD and others in the vehicles near us and for the possibility of  horr-
ific injuries and pain. Fear paralyzes us and everything seems to happen in slow motion. I pray Spirit
for all to be spared.

"I love you, dear." I say to H, and send Unconditional Love to everyone in all the cars and the semi.

I feel myself drift into The Zone. A strange detachment and peacefulness  flows over me. There is no  
judgment or blame assigned to the situation
; I just forgive whatever, whoever might need forgiveness,
feel Oneness with All That Is & resign the outcome to Spirit. Everything glows with a white light as the
truck's huge grill looms up in front of our windshield. I close my eyes, bracing for the impact.

But there is no crash.

I open my eyes. The semi is gone. In the side view mirror, I see its rear doors disappearing down the
freeway behind us.

"What happened?" I cry out. "How come we didn't crash?"

"I don"t know", says HD. "We__  we just seemed to__ pass right through each other."

Somehow, a miracle happened. We give thanks.
                                                             
        ***
Part of us  yearns to  make magic__ to laugh and sing to the stars, while another part whistles in the
dark and ties knots in our stomachs.  There's a fine line between fear and the thrill and excitement of
facing the unknown. We can cross over this line with Unconditional Love.  Even the most  frightening
episodes have the potential  to expand our creative skills toward miracles.  
Emotion is seldom recog-
nized  as being on a par with the qualities of body,  mind and spirit.  Disciplined physical actions  can
lead us to increased mental and physical  development.

Emotion,  however,  is the only direct path  connecting us with  Spirit/Creative Force. There
are really only two emotions__ Love and Fear.

We cannot feel both in the same moment.  Either we feel terror, or we embrace love. All negative em-
otions stem from fear.  We're engaged in a  constant struggle  between our antiquated boogeymen &
our evolving angel-hood,  trying to tame  the dragons of our daily existence.  Fear  weakens creativity
by paralyzing both mind and body, cutting us off from Higher Self & distorting creative effectiveness.

Most humans react to crises from a state of numbness,  recognizing only what supports preconceived
notions__ basing decisions on  old fears from the past  or an imagined  ugly future__  or on  someone
else's answers. Not much can wake us from that brainwashed sleep unless it slams us intensely
.

Energetic Centers and Fear
Each bodily energy center (Figure 2) holds a different fear.

The three lower centers deal with our physical, material needs and desires. The lowest, the root cen-
te
r is where we fear for our very lives. Through the second chakra, the sacral center, we worry we're
not "good enough", "attractive enough", "rich or smart enough". The 3rd center, the
heart is where we
fear we are unlovable, can't see the love around us__or are afraid to love others fully because of our
past wounds.  Ancient shamans used the heart__ the center between the
solar plexus and the throat
center
, to invoke spiritual magic. The solar plexus is where we rev up the body's vibrations to do the
Multi-D Technologies, and the throat center projects those energies to the outer world.

The solar plexus is  
our localized, personal point of power.  It's where we fear relationships,  feel dis-
connected, abandoned or unacceptable __ or fear Earth or her life-forms.  We want relationships, so
we go around with the solar plexus wide open, hoping to attract a partner or a helper
;  but if our con-
sciousness hasn't yet expanded we feel hurt by the judgments of others. When this personal creative
center is open and love is absent,  it's painful__ because from there,  the drive next rises to the
heart,
which understands love and wants to see love everywhere,  and we fear the anguish that unrequited
love can bring.

Ego dwells in the solar plexus. It's where we discover if we're not fully in charge. We each have a sp-
ecific role in the flow of creation, & we are fulfilling that role regardless of whether we want to or not.  
And that's not comfortable in this world. Solar plexus
knows things.  It knows if another person thinks
in threatening ways, knows how to be in the right place at the right time,  knows if someone wants to
fit us into their mold.  It connects with the present & recognizes the flowing of Spirit's Love  within the
Universe.

The solar plexus can also transcend fear. It's where we recognize Spirit/Universe. Spirit is the origin-
inal Creator. Universe is Creator's Divine Consciousnes s within which Spirit functions. During a fall-
ing dream, NDE or OOBE,  solar plexus shows us we are far more than just a physical body, a mind,
a socially accepted image or a list of desires. It lets us out for a bit to reveal  another side to life than
we normally experience, but its silver cord always reels us back.

The
throat is Higher Self's second Creation Center__our voice a sacred creativity tool. The words &
vibrations we project to the physical world are based on beliefs,  feelings,  thoughts & attitudes emb-
odied within us.
Karma requires that whatever we do to others, we must one day__ or one life__ ex-
experience the same done to us. If we're still denying  free will,  believing in a dictator deity who con-
trols our free will, who rewards or punishes, then we are still little kids scared of the Big Boogeyman,
and our voice subliminally vibrates that message to others. When we're vibrating in harmony with un-
iversal purposes, everyone senses it in the resonance of our speech.

We think someone or something else makes us angry, lonely or afraid. But those feelings come from
deep within self, and others subconsciously pick up on them.  If we don't Love Self,  we actually feed
that negative message to others through our energy fields and voices.  Wouldn't they react with simi-
lar words and actions?  We then attract the very things we most fear.

The throat center is where we fear speaking our truths to others,  fear sharing spiritual truths that can
shock others.  It's also  where we're afraid to firmly__  yet kindly__  assert ourselves when it's  crucial
to do so. It's the center through which we express Unconditional Love  and ask Spirit for guidance du-
ring challenging situations, projecting our inner vibrations through our voice's frequencies.

We draw negative people and situations to ourselves in four ways:
1.
) They mirror our unconscious or conscious fears. (like attracts like.)
2.) They present opposition because we expect conflict.
3.) They mirror what we judge most in others and in self.
4.) They indicate when we need to change life's directions. We provoke fear and mistrust, even harm
self or others, through words that make us targets for their frustrations.

As we evolve,  
deliberately attempting to overcome fear, the time comes when we find ourselves con-
fronted with each threatening scenario we ever imagined__  until we learn to love ourselves & others
enough to deal with them appropriately. Consciously recognizing emotions  sets us up for clearing the
fears and changes local energy fields to allow for something other than a fight-or-flight response.

Courage
Fully half our brains are devoted to creativity,  but panic blocks our access to it. Few of us have been  
taught how to handle fear. Either we learned from those near us to" fight or flee" in difficult situations,  
or to suppress feelings
: i.e., "you shouldn't feel that way!"

When we act out on feelings,  hoping to change the outside world to protect ourselves, we essentially
close down to a full experience of that feeling. More subtle forms of emotional avoidance are
worrying
__ dwelling on a sorrowful past or a dreaded future;  controlling: living according to rigid beliefs; jud-
ging
self and others,  or constantly  seeking meaning  by complaining about our  emotional problems
instead of taking steps to resolve them. And last__but most popular__
relationship dependencies. All
are addictive ways of avoiding emotion.

Professional artists enter their work in competitions and exhibitions to attract patrons,  build a resume
and gain recognition through important shows & galleries.  Rejection becomes an almost daily experi-
ence. Artists must continually call on all their strengths and resources to lift themselves out of the pu-
ddles of self-pity and once again prepare to meet the ancient enemy
:  fear of failure.  We have to ac-
cept the challenge to tame our dragons day after day by using our inner resources. Through the cen-
turies, artists have unleashed the power of creativity to tap the magic within.  By applying them to ev-
eryday affairs, we become
"Artists with Life."

Perhaps it's all right to feel fear; it has it's usefulness. It warns us of things that are dangerous or ina-
ppropriate.  It urges us to carefully consider  future plans and actions.  It points us toward something
greater than ourself, and it may be that instead of choosing between love and fear, we can somehow
integrate the two into a more expanded emotion.

Human emotion can entrain light .

Emotional Intensity__ whether bliss or terror__ turns on a mutation process.

Strong emotional states can even  regenerate DNA.

It can activate  new talents and abilities.  During this time of  Ascension Processing,  if we can't  Shift
with Earth using Unconditional Love, then perhaps we can do it with Extreme Terror.

The beta brain wave state is dominant in our normal condition of alertness  As with the
Portland Free-
way Inciden
t above,  we may panic when we find ourselves  beyond familiar boundaries.  Ego lives in
the beta brain wave state. However, nothing in alpha, theta or delta brain wave states supports the e-
go
; it feels threatened__ and it is.

There has recently been uncovered, a state of extreme alertness called  "
High Beta" that also relates
to some states of anxiety. This suggests that fear, tempered with Unconditional Love, temporarily lifts
us to expanded levels where we can grasp more creative solutions. Even the most horrendous exper-
ience can hold incredible energy for change. The desired state is seldom reached easily,  for the out-
come's not all that  important. It's the
Striving!

Each of us is unique and feels our solar plexus effects in a different way.  And if the journey
is no pleasant__it's because we needfed it so.

Rooted in competition, we think we must prove ourselves strong and superior__ so we make our lea-
rning experiences unpleasant to test our fortitude. Or perhaps we turn judgemental,__or take a victim
position during a challenging predicament.  If so__ need we be surprised to find ourselves being chal-
lenged, judged or victimized in return?

Do we need to re-define fear?  

Without fear,  there is no courage.  We speak of  "Overcoming Fear"__  but that does not necessarily
mean we will never feel fear again. It means
: We will not allow Fear  to pull us into negative choices
or behaviors
.  Panic arrives  when we most need to produce creative resolutions, develop some more
appropriate type of inner control,  or allow the Creative Force to perform miracles through us.  It's imp-
ortant to accept fear for what it is__  not as a sign of impending disaster__  but as a  signal from  ego  
that we have ventured beyond our comfort zone,and need to resolve some issue. Higher Self has the
solution
:

We can use our logical minds to analyze fearful situations & possibly find solutions. But if we have no
former experience with an event, we know of no solutions to move toward to__ only the past to pull a-
way from.  

We can lift fear to a place where true clearing can occur by  First using our mental nature to
get educated about the frightening issue, Then
feeling it fully.

This opens us to  possibilities  we never knew existed.  Later, we can return to daily life  and take the
necessary loving action to test it out.

Everyone has physical discomfort from injury or illness at some stage of life.  As Christ demonstrated
:

Because we are really energy beings,  the material body may be unimportant to our  consci-
ousness evolution, other than acting as a barometer for our present state of being
. It is a ve-
ssel holding emotionally transformable DNA that can be passed on to our descendants.

Sometimes our paranormal encounters  cannot be analyze
d.  We simply  feel them fully,  let
them exis
t__  just for now__ believing that  in the appropriate time and place,  the  difficulties
will be understood and transformed.  

What if the "monsters" we face are really angels in disguise,  only hoping we will__  just once__ react
with love instead of fear.  

Is everything that seems violent in its core,  just something feeling helpless,  crying out for our love?  
Life seems to ask us to muck out a lot of sewers before we discover spiritual gold

We have a right to our own feelings, but we don't have to let them control us.

Overriding fear begins with first recognizing when we are afraid and then allowing it. We can own our
fear without necessarily accepting the negative circumstances behind it.

Once we recognize that  The Source of Power is Within Us,  we no longer need to  engage in
conflicts where each combatant tries to pull power from his opponent  by proving only he is
"right".

Resistance or Denial  lies behind most of the pain in any negative emotional encounter, and prods us
toward appropriate change.

Unreleased emotional stress piles up inside until it erupts into the physical. Instead of dismissing the
fear, we can
feel it and accept it.  

Find the place in the body that holds the fear and
breathe through it, letting the negative fee-
ling do what it wants. It may become intense. If so__ try to endure it.

The best time to examine oneself for clues to resistance is when emotion is strongest
.  
Let breath clear out the feeling's negativity,  & replace it with Unconditional Love.  As fear wanes, we'
'll sense a change within,  and we'll know we've released the negativity . It may take several sessions
to fully clear traumatic fear,  but its hold on us will gradually lessen,  and as we move toward that  rel-
ease, we feel the power of
The Creative Force Field moving through us.

Beyond Courage
Acting bravely in the face of danger  has long been considered honorable and just.  But courage may
be only the first step towards eliminating fear
.

Remember: Emotion belongs to our Spiritual Nature, holding  tremendous force for change.

When we feel hurt by others, we can recognize the hidden agendas being triggered. Example: if we'-
re upset because we read how the government is spending our generation's social security funds, we
can realize it's probably based upon our belief in a non-abundant universe.

A most important step when doing any Multi-D-Technology is to Ask Permission from Higher
Self before trying to generate unusual outcomes.  

Higher creative skills can override fear when we follow a process similar to making art:
Using any technique we know to enter the Zone__ sitting still,  meditating,  praying, listening to music
or walking in nature. After awhile, emotion rises as we begin to pull in Divine Love and release negat-
tivity from within. Any negative feeling can be dealt with in this way. It doesn't matter if it's from some-
thing that happened today, four years ago, or four thousand years ago. It's ripe for examining, feeling
to the max and releasing . Feelings that return again & again  are begging to be transformed at these
times.

When we daydream or envision various desired futures__ each of which exists in an invisible density,
dimensions or time-line of information,  we are unconsciously contacting
The Universal Mind which
is, actually, supernatural; i.e.,
it exists beyond Space & Time.

Universal Mind  does not coincide  with the  physical laws of the  planetary densities__ 3rd,
4th or 5th__ in which we are presently residing, & that control the creative processes within
that densiry__ or it's dimensions.  

Ancient spiritual teachings about  "The Mind of God",  can shockingly seem similar. If we are truly__
consciously or unconsciously__
 selecting the events that happen in our lives__  then changing
our minds should also change what happens.

Considering our daily experiences, this may well assure us that:
Humans who  place their trust in Love  will access futures  where Love prevails  over every
type of misery.  

When  channeling our creativity, we needn't run from  trouble or become defensive__ we can tune in-
to Higher Self and find solutions offering the best for all.

Many of our fears eventually manifest because we trusted outside influences over our own inner guid-
anc
e. Trust is vital for manifesting miracles, because if we don't trust Spirit Within Self,  we won't trust
Spirit Within others; and soon we cannot trust Spirit at all.

Rather than assuming higher intervention will be automatic, we need to ask Spirit for assist-
ance only when it's truly needed.
 We cannot expect Spirit to step in & perform miracles if we cho-
ose to do something foolis h like seeing how fast we can drive,  or manifesting an object only to show
off creative skills. Higher Creativity is not meant for needless or frivolous purposes.

Fear fosters  a sense of powerlessness,  but we feel empowered  when we have the courage  to face
fear and act to overcome it.  

As we overcome terror,  we recognize that truth about our humanity__
 We are "powerful beyond
measure."
Replacing Fear with Love is the most challenging of all Basic Multi-D Technologies.

Love must be both given and received.  If we long for respect, acceptance,  appreciation or affec-
tion,  we must give the same to others. A family provides the best situation through which to learn ab-
out Love.

The Angry Dog
Can you recall a personal situation when you were totally sure of do__ but it would place you in a da-
ngerous situation__ but you didn't know why?

August, 1991:  Hal and I stay overnight at the country home of our son and his family.  The younger
children tell us how a neighbor's dogs bark, snarl, chase them,  & chew on  four-year-old
Ned's pant
legs. Both children are afraid of them, and
Diane__ age eight__ has to pass them daily to & from the
school bus stop.

I wake early in the morning. Our daughter-in-law has left for work, but everyone else is asleep.  I like
to walk  utdoors daily and strange dogs can sometimes be a problem. I'd never been bitten  but have
had some close calls & wonder if someday it will really occur. I want to walk before the day heats up,  
and outside, I consider which direction to take.

The dirt road into the desert looks inviting __ I've never been down it before.  The black-topped road
to the left is familiar, but the mean dogs live over that way.
Higher Self says "If you go that way,  the
dogs will come out and bite you
." There's absolutely no emotion attached; it's simply a statement of
fact.

To my astonishment, I turn toward the paved road toward the mean dogs. Why am I doing this? I had
a flash of the future, and without making a conscious decision,  I march down that paved road,  dead
certain I'm about to have another "
adventure". Even though I stay on the far side of the road, all three
dogs run to the fence, barking savagely. The larger white dog __ a mix of Samoyed & Chow with the
distinctive black mouth & tongue, ducks under the fence and runs up behind me, snarling and growl-
ling, its' fangs bared.

Instead of my usual approach in such a situation, which is to stop__ and project a sense of complete
harmlessness, speaking lovingly and softly to the animal in a high-pitched voice,  I surprise myself a-
gain and take a truly defiant stance. I turn to face the dog, plant my feet firmly on the pavement, legs
apart, hands on hips & just stare it down__  something I well know is the worst thing to do with an a-
ngry or fearful animal. I intend to abide by my principle of not harming this creature, but I'm not runn-
ing from it either. This behavior works fine at first,  and the dog calms down but does not  back away.  
Yet, as I slowly turn to walk on, it jumps up behind me and sinks its teeth into my leg.  In fact, it drives
its big canine teeth into my calf and  shakes it like an old rag or bone. I yell and wave my arms until it
lets go and runs back behind the fence, still barking and growling.

The skin is broken in several places; blood runs freely down my leg.  I know I need medical attention.
and probably a tetanus shot. I just hope that dog isn't rabid! I hobble back to the house. It's Sunday &
the hospital is twelve miles away.  Hal drives me to the emergency room  as I try to halt the blood flow
with a towel.  Along the way we stop at the shop where the dogs' owner works. I show her the wound
and tell her  how frightened  my little grandchildren are of her dogs.  She's very apologetic__  tells us
to send her any medical bills and explains that "Lady" is getting old, suffering from arthritic pains & of-
ten grouchy. This incident makes them realize that something needs to be done about her.

Strangely, I never have a twinge of pain
; not while being bitten, not limping down the road,  not while
riding in the car,  not even when the doctor has to squeeze the wound hard  to see if any foreign mat-
erial is inside,  and not during the following days  when it becomes a mass of bruises extending six in-
ches outwardly from the puncture. The doctor said animal bites often permanently discolor the skin ar-
ound them.  hat wound bleeds openly for
three weeks. Something is being "released"
                                                                           
***
Sometime later, phoning friend, Penny, I mention my puzzlement over taking so aggressive an attitude
and how there never was the slightest bit of pain.  Penny says,  "
You did it for your grandchildren;  to
protect them in the future.
" I immediately know she's right. I also did it for Lady  too; she didn't want to
suffer outside through another winter.

After the wound heals over,  I ask Higher Self what to do about the discoloration. Castor oil is sugges-
ted, I rub it on twice daily, visualizing the skin clear and normal with love and forgiveness for both dog
and self.  Within a year, the discoloration is gone.  Only a white scar the size of a dime remains.  H.S.
suggests olive oil rubbed on the scar. In two more years, the scar is gone forever.

We can  accept unusual outcomes  as necessary  lessons for  our  consciousness  evolution  without
needing to fully understand them. During the Age of Pisces,  we needed to have
faith in spiritual forc-
es,  but during the Age of Aquarius,  we need t o
know them intimately__ and to know the truth about
them.  The tremendous powers of  Divine Unconditional Love &  Harmlessness  were evolving  within
me.

When comparing other people's reports of deliverance with mine, a pattern emerged:

* 1:  
We need to assure ourselves that we're all right in the present moment.
* 2:  Much of our fear  stems from the "unknown"  and a lack of  understanding,  so during  frightening
predicaments, we first need to gather all the information we can on the subject.
* 3:  We align with H. S.,  taking the fearful emotion to a higher level for release  by emptying mind of
all negative or positive emotions  and connecting with the  creative
alpha state__ the Zone__ sensing
an emotional shift into Forgiveness, Divine Love and a perfect sense of Harmlessness for all involved.
* 4:  We state our need in positive words to structure a precise consciousness of it. Writing the intent-
ion on paper is even better__ as it grounds the idea  onto the Earth plane.  Stating the request  aloud
through the throat center can be even more powerful, projecting those vibrations into our DNA and in-
to the immediate environment.
*  5:  Ask for guidance,  visualizIng the problem as already resolved__ and holding it steady until und-
erstanding arrives.
*  6:  Feel the joy of the solution; express thanks and peacefully act on the guidance received just be-
fore the amazing change of fortune occurs.
*  7:  Hold a strong sense of wonder about what incredible, miraculous thing is about to arise from the
tactions. Creative Force knows better than we just what needs to be done and exactly how to do it.
*  8:  Take one physical action toward resolution without worrying about completing anything or dwell-
ing on expectations. Just do it.
*  8:  Detach from it. Forget it. Let Creative Force process it.

It's How We Intentionally Create
 Our emotional nature and the environment change when resistance
to negative feelings leaves
.

Sometimes the outcome is not what we would have preferred.  In the encounter with  the angry dogs,  
the original conscious request  was for guidance as to  which road to take for my walk,  but was  tied
with the higher consciousness desire to protect the children.  Whatever we request of Spirit needs, in
some way, to stem from higher, more inclusive levels__ and higher intentions  will always take priority
over the lower.

If we find that a win-win solution  fails to materialize,  and one or even both parties  are injured,  have
we expected Spirit/Creative Force to work
for us rather than with us? Could we ourselves have taken
more physical action  towards manifesting  a positive outcome?  Did we listen to the  inner voice  and
follow its suggestions?  Others can be of help,  but we alone need to initiate  the courage to  face our
dragons.  We must recognize, as in several of the mystical encounters that follow
: We co-create with
Spirit to make the magic happen  by assisting the necessary verbal,  emotional and/or  physical act-
ion, instead of depending entirely on Spirit to do it all for us,  as is often the case when using prayer
alone.

It's come to be well-known that every time we give our power, or our energy, away to a per-
son or situation, our body loses its ability to regenerate a few thousand cells.
 

When we encounter a situation over which we have little or no control,  perhaps we'd do better to av-
oid trying to change it__ and instead, find a way to live with it.
                                                     
The key is to handle fearful situations without giving our power away.

During the  incident with Lady, I wanted something for myself; but it was for my grand-kids, too. They
couldn't do it themselves and had  expressed their fears to me.  I had a flash of what could happen to
me, but chose the danger out of love. I felt the fear, did it anyway,  detached from the outcome & took
the first action__ a step down the road,  willing to do the journey  no matter what the outcome. My se-
cond action was to  force a confrontation  with the big dog,  allowing Universe to manifest an outcome
for the good of all. If I hadn't been bitten, Lady would have, perhaps, one day seriously bitten the chi-
ldren. Lady was kept tied after that,  and a few months later we heard she was put to sleep. The dogs
were controlled, t he grandchildren were safe and the lack of pain taught me a new lesson
: Uncond-
itional Love and courage for others may even overcome suffering
.

Synchronicities__ incredible coincidences__  between our inner experiences and events in the out-
er world indicate when we are co-creating with Spirit,  implying that consciousness and matter are not
independent from each other and do indeed interact.  A non-defensive position to new or disturbing i-
deas, opinions or feelings replaces
competition with the creative skill of cooperation.

Fear dis-empowers__ but  Unconditional Love &  Harmlessness neutralize fear and empower us. The
adrenaline rush accompanying fear  is the hormonal fuel that can be directed  to project Love through
our energy fields and arrange an environment in which miracles can occur.

When we truly love self and others, we will gladly take the journeys and the risks leading to an under-
standing and completion of the struggles before us.  We take responsibility for our own emotions,  ca-
st no blame,  avoid having a victim attitude and are non-judgmental
.  Our fears really do have a purp-
ose in the flow of our lives
: informing and directing us regarding our personal reasons for incarnating
on Earth. As time goes on, we learn to process negativity faster and faster  until we can do it in only a
few days, hours or even minutes.

The next step for overcoming fear is experiencing
Oneness__ Unity Consciousness with all involved
__ and being empowered with higher levels of Love, ecstasy, compassion and power
. Invoking Divine
Love & Harmlessness means  allowing the other fellow to make his own choices. Does that mean giv-
ing our free will away to others?  Not if we view the situation  from the collective consciousness of
:

Our Greater Self, which knows no "other fellow" or "me" exists__
there's only "One of Us"
here__ Our Creator
: Our Collective Consciousness.


We can co-create miracles with Spirit that not only transmute pain and suffering for ourselves and for
others, but for Earth and all life upon Her, too. Can we really produce heaven on Earth for only a priv-
ileged, knowledgeable few, when most of the world is so clearly in need? The appropriate sort of will-
ingness__ allowing self to be a channel for higher purposes__ transmutes fear into Love & Harmless-
ness, moving self to new heights of emotion known as Divine Love & Compassion where ecstasy, pr-
wcognition and miracles occur.

Did you ever suddenly find yourself  in the middle of a large group of wild animals  and their
young?

Walking With the Buffalo
October, 1981:
HD and I visit Yellowstone Park in the off-season when fewer people and more wild
animals are around.  Beside the snowy mid-October road, a group of male buffalo  huddle together.
Blanketed with white hoar frost  from the combination of cold air  and the warm stream beside them,
they snort  huge clouds of steam  from their nostrils.  I snap a few photos out  the open  pickup truck
window, not daring to go closer.

A little farther down the road,  a herd of elk grazes near the Firehole River.  Perhaps I can get close-
ups with my zoom lens if I creep up on them through the lodgepole pines between us. H. waits in the
pickup  as I try to creep through  the stand of tall, thin trees.  Brittle, brown frozen grass  beneath the
pines scrunches under my feet.  I try to position myself for the best shot,  adjusting the lens & focus-
ing.  But then I hear the grass crunching again__  is H. joining me?  Before I can turn around, some-
thing brushes against my arm, and as the hair rises on my neck, I slowly turn to find__I'm in the mid-
st of an entire herd of cow buffalo and their calves walking beside and behind me!

Recalling grisly stories about people who foolishly came between female bison and their young, I'm
paralyzed.  These animals are as tall as a man. They weigh at least  a thousand pounds each.  It's a
mother buffalo rubbing against me,  with her calf right behind.  About twenty other mothers & young-
sters are headed straight for me. I can smell them and feel their body heat.

I can't fight__ and I certainly don't dare run.  I release all emotion  and move into  The Zone
:  "What
now?
",  I ask.  The inner voice answers: "Become a buffalo."  Not sure at first exactly what it means,
I try to maintain a sense of harmlessness while the creatures walk, nod & nibble grass. As they slo-
wly move past me, I Love them and  evoke Oneness by making myself feel as if I'm a buffalo, too.  I
lift each arm and leg in step with them, breathe with the same rhythm,  and even move my mouth as
if  munching grass.  I gradually  slow my pace,  and in time,  the entire herd  passes__  heading for
the warm river beyond.

Sighing with relief, I turn to see H. standing at the edge of  the road.
 "I just didn't know  what to do",  
he says, eyes wide.
"I was afraid to call out to you, afraid I'd startle them__ I thought the whole herd
would attack!"

Again, as with the  Portland Freeway encounter,  fleeing or fighting  was totally out  of the question.  I
knew there were other options. I didn't just
wonder it__ I knew it and became non-attached to the out-
come, willing to do the journey and take the risks to allow Creator's purposes to manifest.

A shift in awareness influences the outcome of events.  

Know
we already have all we need within us,  feel the joy of it and express gratitude even before any
change begins.  Countering fear  activates the magic and miracles of deliverance  within the  Creative
Field's Flow where potentials for all outcomes exist.

The Creative Skill of
Detachment from the final results of creating  allows for powerful, intelligent, lov-
ing,  self-organizing Creative Force to enter.  It is greater than the energetic sum of all the individuals,
creatures, plants or minerals involved, and greater even  than the normal 3-D laws of physics, for
:

The laws of physics are different in higher dimensional realms

Were you ever "rescued" from a negative situation by wild creatures?
               
Sauce for the Gander
Fairview Heights, Illinois, 1991: Our apartment sits across the street from a 52 acre park. Some huge
domestic geese  take up residency  at the park's lake-front  and often  harass joggers.  One morning,
several attack me on the first lap of my walk.  One four-foot tall fellow  actually runs up from behind,
trying to bite my buns__ but only catches the fabric of my shorts. I turn around and yell, "shoo", clap
my hands and stomp my feet  to scare them away.  Recalling the dog bite incident in Idaho  a month
earlier, I ask Higher Self, "
What's going on now?"

A knowingness seeps in:  "As we  raise our consciousness,  our energy fields  change__ we vibrate  
more rapidly and more intensely. Animals can sense this and some feel threatened."

Then a curious thing happens.  On my second lap  around the lake,  I'm pondering  how to deal with
the big geese again. I consider finding a stick or some stones,  but decide against attacks__ that on-
ly insures more violence. As I start down the little hill to the lake bridge, I see there are now
twelve  
big mean geese swimming in the middle of the lake.  They pay no attention whatsoever to the many
other walkers,  but as soon as they see me__ they raise a ruckus,  honking,  squawking  and turning
to swim very fast across the lake__ straight towards me! Yoicks!

I enter the Zone & project Harmlessness and Divine Love. Some of the wild Canadian Honkers, who
nest at the lake in summer,  are standing on  the banks beside me.  When the angry geese  begin to
move across the water towards me,  the entire Canadian Honker flock  flies into the lake  behind the
angry geese, beating their wings, keeping the mean geese away. They remain there, splashing wat-
er while I circle the lake before leaving. T he mean geese climb out across the lake__  seemingly to
await my return  to the top of the hill  when I'll round  the other side of the lake.  I keep walking, slow
my stride & "become
a goose", as I did with t he buffalo. The birds ignore me completely. They don't
even honk or hiss, as is usual whenever anyone meets them on the walkway!

At the time  this incident occurred,  I could have left the park,  but I was  deliberately  trying to learn to
surmount fear.  I accepted that fear  without fleeing  and refused violence,  wanting the best outcome  
for all involved. Rather than asking for divine
protection, I requested understanding,  & Creative For-
ce obliged__ the energetics of the environment were miraculously changed. I was protected  by some
of Nature's wild creatures and none of the geese were harmed, either.  It may require  numerous such
attempts  before major fears  can be overcome.  All consequences__ positive or negative__ are feed-
back from the Universe.

Whenever we have a long-standing fear of something,  there's usually good reason for it.  If we're still
afraid after trying the above techniques, then perhaps we're not yet ready  to deal with that fear. Per-
haps the timing is not appropriate.  Most long-standing fears can only be overcome by completely un-
selfish acts of Love.  When Higher Self knows we're ready, life presents us with some specialized sit-
uation__a challenge in which, through Divine Love, we will find the courage needed to overcome that
fear. A phobia of heights  might be allayed in a moment of heroism  when a child is about  to fall off  a
cliff, & out of love, we climb out on a precarious tree limb, or dangle by a frayed rope to save her. We-
've then overcome our fear of heights, never even giving it a thought, because a someone was in dan-
ger, and we cared.

Even long-standing phobias can be overcome with higher love as we learn to deal with emotions that
Transcend Time.  Past Life Experiences can impact us  with long-standing emotional traumas in  our
current life, usually through relationships. I did not fully understand where these mystical encounters  
were leading.  I thought I was learning some kind of "
magic" or "healing" until the Flower of Life work-
shop and the
1994 discovery of the Idaho Stargate.

Because of past-life negativity__ in particular,  as a 13th century  Cathar healer caught up in the Vati-
can and French King's extermination of the Knights Templars & their associates, the attending Inquis-
ition, being tortured & burned at the stake, plus some minor residual harassment in this lifetime about
being a  "witch",  I had a deep-seated dread that fully accepting,  developing & honoring my often biz-
arre paranormal path  might once again either bring  persecution and harm to loved ones__ as occur-
red with family and friends in the Cathar lifetime__ or entirely alienate me from my current family.

Because of that fear, it was 25 years before I moved back to Magic Valley again where my children &
grandchildren lived.  In a  strange sort of  paradox,  it was the  "spiritual path"  itself that  engendered
confusion__ not because of what I was  learning or doing,  but because of  my fear that what had on-
ce happened, might manifest again. Because I dreaded a repeat of the Cathar horror, my fears came
true when distrust and  misunderstanding arose between myself and a dear son.  I manifested it with
my negative expectations. So what, then, was left to fear about relationships & past lives? I experien-
ced it, dealt with it and survived after all. Later, Incidents in Arizona set off a chain of events that mov-
ed us back to Magic Valley, Idaho, where our family is lovingly integrated once more.

The Spiritual Warrior
The highest possible level of mastering fear is to overcome the notion implanted by organized religion
about "original sin"; or that we must "suffer" & physically die to reach "heaven"__or that because Jes-
us "died on the cross "for our sins",  we don't have to do anything other than "believe" in Him__ rather
than doing the work to evolve our own self spiritually by connecting with Spirit Within & listenening to
Its' guidance with complete trust in Its' infinite goodness
.

Manifesting at this level begins when we become The Spiritual Warrior. This is not the role of a sold-
ier, gladiator or Kung Fu master, but of an individual who battles to eliminate his own inner weaknes-
ses and conflicts,  rather than blame the people  and the environment around him.  A spiritual warrior
has to use tremendous discipline to develop the inner powers of their spirit and body. His/her senses,
thoughts & emotions are able to perform at their highest and even beyond__ not in some military agg-
ression,  but in service to Spirit__ the Creative Force of the Universe. The practice of Tai Chi presen-
ts a perfect example
:  no blow is struck__ yet an opponent is prevented from inflicting harm when we
"Become as One" with him.

Tai Chi and martial arts such as Karate and Tang Soo Do require the practitioner to understand their
own body's energies so completely,  that they can understand  the energies  o f the opponent's body.  
Therefore,  if someone is about to throw a punch at you,  you empty yourself so completely, that you
are literally, "not there"__  which is the  meditative state__ "The Zone".  Being empty means that you
have  no ego about the conflict,  no fear of life,  death or harm,  and you therefore  
become the other
person
.  If you planned to slap  our own face,  you wouldn't not do it, because you'd know in advance,
exactly when the slap is coming. So if you are  ONE with the other person,  they could not hit you, as
you sense the energy coming from them, know exactly when they plan to do so__ & you  just "move."

The Spiritual Warrior feels a tremendous sense of love&d compassion for all life.  When he/ she real-
izes that  anything is possible if based on Divine Unconditional Love__ he/she transforms into the 4th
level of mastering fear
: The Spiritual Magician__ a miracle-worker  who not only evades injury and
deflects anger, but uses his/her skills to both create and heal.

The Spiritual Magician
Frustrations arise  when we've repeatedly tried to tame our inner dragons  and it doesn't work out ac-
cording to our plan__  we find we must try again and again. Perhaps what we really seek  is an even
more inclusive level of dealing with fear__ one beyond just  knowing how to protect ourselves in diff-
icult situations
; a level that prevents dangerous situations from manifesting in the first place.

Approaching life from the Observer Stage of Consciousness Evolution__  a more scientific attitude__
we use our everyday environment as if it were a laboratory.  When Life brings us difficulty, we can try
a different approach & watch what happens. If that doesn't work, we try another way, observe its out-
come, & then try another and another if necessary,  until final resolution or at least a piece of the puz-
zle is found.

The Spiritual Magician,  working from  Unconditional Love for all,  trusts himself,  Creative Force and
Spirit completely, using his personal creative energy to bring Spirit's energy down through self to acc-
omplish healing and creating.  As we tame  our fear dragons with Love,  we feel  more alive.  We see
ourselves growing in consciousness and many difficulties automatically shift. New situations and new
people enter our lives, responding to us in more positive ways.

Fear of the Dark
The Elite Controller Factions in this world  benefit from keeping us fearful. Fear is often used to mani-
pulate us mentally, politically, economically, sexually,  educationally and even religiously or spiritually.
When viewing TV or reading,  be aware of how  fear is used to push us in certain directions,  even if
only to buy a new snack food,  new medication,  a particular automobile,  to join some elite group,  or
support some new  political or military agenda. When fear  dominates,  it prevents us from  accessing  
those states of mind allowing  attunement  o Higher Self, Spirit and our creative potentials.

A major fear of humanity has been that we are powerless in the face of dark forces.  The current sub-
ject matter of TV programs,  movies & even children's cartoons, is to evoke that dark fear
:  vampires,
the walking dead, ghosts, zombies, werewolves, men in black and shadow people.  It's Halloween all
year round.  Elite Factions own the major media corporations  and present these offerings to keep us
afraid of evil forces under which we are supposedly helpless, thereby subduing and controlling us.

Somewhere along our path of consciousness evolution,  we'll find ourselves  challenged by  dark for-
ces__ reflections of our shadow sides__  those parts of ourselves  still unrecognized,  over which we
fear we have no control. We are all facing that fear right now. This represents our collective fear as a
human species,  for dark forces have been  written & told about for millennia  with little understanding
of where they come from or what they really are.

Intuition activates miracles  beyond logic & reason.  

Even if another person threatens us bodily harm,  Spiritual Warrriors & Magicians  love that individual
__ and themselves__ unconditionally. They enter the Zone  as when meditating,  healing,  painting or
making music__  intuitively attuned to Spirit/ Creative Force.  When we refuse to channel that lofty en-
ergy, we experience confusion. When we allow it to flow through us,  we have the comfortably secure
feeling of being a co-creator.

Have you ever deliberately antagonized Dark Forces, just to prove a spiritual law?

The Sorcerer's Apprentice   
1995:
A most bizarre encounter occurs when I visit my friend Sherry at her shop in Lost Rivers, Idaho,
where she provides  metaphysical & spiritual books,  alternative healing remedies,  & space for meta-
physical and spiritual seminars.

Soon after I arrive, a former astrology client enters and introduces us to her husband.  We catch up
on the intervening years, and the hubby,  "Rusty"  soon feels free to discuss some deep fears, relat-
ing two recent incidents in California which distress him greatly.  His worst fear stems from a year-
long apprenticeship with a  Native American shaman in California . Rusty says he was taught many
things, but became terrified when he realized the shaman was controlling him,  & he couldn't  break
free. He'd seen the shaman use his powers to put "curses" on other people, & the results were horr-
ifying.  Rusty left the apprenticeship  because he didn't want to go down that dark path,  yet lived in
constant fear that this sorcerer,  who hadn't wanted him to leave California, would harm him from a
distance.

I tell Rusty that no magic, black or white,  can be used on an individual unless they themselves,  on
some inner level, agree to it. Rusty vehemently denies this, relating how the shaman cast his spells
and what happened to his victims. Rusty says  he himself  learned how to do this,  and successfully
used it to create minor irritations to certain individuals,  but refuses to cause great or lasting harm to
anyone.

I tell him about the power of  Unconditional Love,  Oneness and  Harmlessness,  trying to reassure
him  he'll remain safe  while using those emotions.  But,  clearly, believing he is powerless against
evil,  Rusty becomes agitated,  raises his voice,  jumps up and down and flings his arms around wl-
ldly. He shouts that no one would believe it unless they had experienced it for themselves.

Inwardly , I attune to Higher Self,  asking what, if anything, can be done to teach the power of Love
to this young man and help him overcome his fears. Incredibly, I find myself telling Rusty to  please
project his magical powers onto me as a teaching example, if he can really do so.  Dark forces  can
only  impact us with unresolved karma, so here was an opportunity for me to overcome a residue of
my past life fears about that  Cathar lifetime.  Once we know how to activate a power and use it, we
no longer have to keep doing it just to prove to ourselves that we can,  & I know that  
no one has au-
thority to open my solar plexus except myself.

Rusty thinks for few minutes,  visibly perspiring as he struggles with his conscience. His wife beco-
mes so upset,  she  leaves the shop,  and Sherry  busies herself  in the back room__  (safely out of
the way of stray energies).  Rusty and I are alone in the front of the empty shop. He agrees,  and we
look into each other's eyes.

He seems to be working himself up to an extremely emotional state.  As for me,  I become One with
Rusty , listen for inner guidance & radiate  Unconditional Love and Harmlessness toward both of us,
as with the buffalo,  being sure not to feel,  think or act defensively in any way,  nor to resist his pro-
jections. I'll just let whatever Rusty sends pass right on through me, as did the semi on the Portland
freeway.

After about five minutes, Rusty comes out of his emotional state. He says he's finished. I'm surpris-
ed__ I felt nothing at all.  He seems confused,  exhausted and deflated.  I ask if he's all right. Then,  
claiming he put a "timer" on the spell  & it won't activate until later,  he refuses to say when this will
be. I smile inside myself and wish him well as he quickly leaves the shop.

Months, even years pass, but no spell, no curse manifests.

I'm astonished. Again, I did something I normally wouldn't dream of doing. I trusted the power of One-
ness and  Unconditional Love and  demonstrated it to Rusty,  who believed he was helpless against
dark forces.  But I also,  verified
:

To use Unconditional Love & Harmlessness and Become as One with an opponent, shifts us
to higher levels of co-creative bonding  wherein we are literally,  
One Being; a nd unless the
projector wishes to harm himself also, he cannot project darkness.

As co-creators, we come to learn that Spirit sees larger roles for us than we can presently perceive. I
sincerely believe  Spirit's greater agenda for Earth  is to promote Love, peace & healing for all creat-
ures, an expanded goal that will soon override selfish intents or elitism. We need to ask for the magic
only when our personal need is linked with higher purposes. In any case, whether the consequences
bring intense disappointment or rapture,  we still have to be willing to do the journey & accept results,
however painful or over-whelming they may be.

The search for  love and truth goes on. Maybe there's always more to learn about courage.  No one
has all the answers. Even after personal dreads have been cleared, life hatches new dragons for us
to tame,  more frogs to kiss,  more "mean dogs" to face. E arth supports and nurtures us, despite the
fact that on this planet,only__ Mankind deliberately fouls its own nest.  If we don't damage & destroy  
Earth and each other as we've been doing,  perhaps we won't fear that  someone or something else
will one day do the same to us.

We've created a civilization based on  fear & greed.  The greater intent for the recent earth changes,
natural disasters,  terrorist attacks,  health,  environmental, economic & energy difficulties, is to keep
nudging all species upon the planet towards the understanding that
: We are all One Great Energetic
Being, with the free will and power to re-create a heaven on Earth.

Courage,  Love and Harmlessness in the face of danger  may be only  "
Act 1" for overcoming all fear.
When we perform creative acts appropriately, we enter the stillness & Become as One, if only for the
time required for that particular transformation. Perhaps we need to
Become the Oneness, Love and
Peace ourselves
, rather than performing intentions to protect ourselves after the need arises.

The final goal in mastering fear  requires  Complete Trust in Spirit Within.

But how do we develop that Trust?

Above all, be aware that Darkness always leads to Light.

Our ability to create new personalities & lifestyles at will , leads to trust in ourselves. Then, instead of
using the magic purely for personal protection, we become channels for  Universal purposes and find  
miracles of deliverance spontaneously occurring around us.  

We may need to master all the Multi-Dimensional Technologies__ Basic & Expanded__  before we're
able to completely trust Spirit Within.

When that Trust overrides all fear, we shall then have Peace on Earth.
