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. Uneverse is Creator's Divine Consciousness 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,
activating  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 made it so.

Rooted in competition, we think we must prove ourselves strong and superio
r__ so we make
our learning experiences unpleasant to test our fortitude. Or perhaps we turn judgemental,  or take a
victim p-sition during a challenging predicament. If so__ need we be surprised to find ourselves being
challe-ged, 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 im-
portant 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 have no known solution to move toward to__  
only the past to pull away 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 vessel holding emotionally transformable DNA that can be passed on to descendants.

Sometimes our paranormal encounters cannot be analyzed.

We simply feel them fully,  let them exist __ 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 con-
flicts 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,  and 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 sess-
ions to fully clear traumatic fear, but its hold on us will gradually lessen, and as we move toward that
release, we feel the power of The Creative Force Fiels 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 se-
curity 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 of 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 invis-
ible dimension 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 dimensions__ 3rd,
4th or 5th__ in which we are presently residing, & that control the creative processes within
that dimension.  

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 guidanc
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 foolish 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 and  the hospital is twelve miles away.  H drives me to  the emergency room  as I try to halt
the flow of blood  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 and  often 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
material is inside, and not during the  following days  when it becomes  a mass of bruises  extending
six inches  outwardly from  the puncture. The doctor says  animal bites often permanently discolor the
skin around them.  That 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's wind and cold.

After the wound healed over,  I ask Higher Self what to do about the discoloration.  Castor oil is
suggested,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 un-derstand them. During the Age of Pisces, we needed to have
faith in spiritual forces,
but during the Age of Aquarius, we need to
know them intimately__ and know the truth about them.
The tremendous powers of Divine Unconditional Love and 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 this 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,  and take 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
Intention 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 the vibrations into our DNA
and into the immediate environment.
*  5:  Ask for guidance, visualize the problem as already resolved__ and hold it steady until under-
standing arrives.
*  6:  Feel the joy of the solution, express thanks and peacefully act on the guidance received  just
before the ama azing change of fortune occurs.
*  7:  Hold a strong  sense of wonder  about what incredible,  miraculous thing  is about to  arise from
this action. 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
dwelling on expec tations. 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  safeguard  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
action,  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, our energy, away to a person 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 too avoid 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 grandkids,  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 and took the
first action__ a step down the road, willing to do the journey no matter what the outcome. My second
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
grandchildren.  Lady was kept tied  after that,  and a few months later  we heard she was  put to
sleep.  The dogs were controlled, the grandchildren were safe and the lack of pain  taught me a new
lesson
:  Unconditional  Love and courage for others may even overcome suffering.

Synchronicities__ incredible coincidences__  between our inner experiences and events in the
outer 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 ideas,  opinions or feelings replaces
competition with the creative skill of cooperation.

Fear dis-empowers,  but Unconditional Love and 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
understanding and completion of the struggles before us.  We take responsibility for our own
emotions,  cast no blame,  avoid having a victim attitude  and are non-judgmental
.  Our fears really
do  have a purpose  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 and Harmlessness means  allowing the other fellow  to make his own choices.  Does that
mean  giving our free will away to others?  Not if we view the situation from the collective
consciousness of our Greater Self,  which knows no "other fe-
low" or "me" exists__
there's only "One of Us" here__ Creator: Our Collective Consciousness, we
can co-reate miracles with Spirit that not only transmute pain and suffering for ourselves and others,
but for Earth and all life upon Her, too.  Can we really produce heaven on Earth  for only a
privileged,  knowledgeable few,  when most of the world is so clearly in need?  The appropriate sort
of willingness__  allowing self to  be a channel for higher purposes__ transmutes fear into Love and
Harmlessness, moving self to new heights of emotion known as Divine Love or Compassion where
ecstasy, precognition 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 and
focusing. But then I hear the grass  crunching again __  is H joining me? Before I can turn around,
something brushes against my arm, and as the hair rises on my neck,  I slowly turn to find  I'm in the
midst 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 and
youngsters 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 and nibble grass.  As they
slowly 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 HD  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
outcome,  willing to do the journey and take the risks to allow Creator's intentions 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 the potentials
for all outcomes exist.

The  Creative Skill o f
Detachment   from the  final results of creating  allows for   powerful,  
intelligent,  loving, 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 only in-
sures more violence.  As I start down the little hil l 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&d 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 them,
beating their wings, keeping the angry geese away. They remain there, splashing water while I circle
the lake before leaving. The 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,  and Creative
Force obliged__ the energetics of the environment were  miraculously changed.  I was  protected  by
some of Nature's wild creatures & 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
feedback 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.
Perhaps the timing is not appropriate. Most long-standing fears can only be overcome by completely
unselfish acts of Love. When Higher Self knows we're ready,  life presents us with some specialized
situation__ 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
danger, 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, a s 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,&veloping & 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 c
reate 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'lll 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 energy, we experience confusion. When we all-
ow 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
;  and 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 per-
sonalities & 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.
