82 days to go: Illusion of Maya & Jellyfish

Previously on 100 layers blog: Peter was trying to find divine purpose in EVERYTHING – including getting stung by a jellyfish.

The spiritual masters of Tantra (as well as many other traditions) have been telling us for thousands of years that there is a greater reality that exists beyond this physical world that we know as home. That is the spirit world. It is where we come from and where we go to after the body dies. It is said that the spirit realm is the TRUE reality and the physical world that we can experience with out bodily senses is merely an illusion that serves as a training ground for our spirits’ journey in this body. In Tantra this is known as Maya.

When we are born into this world, our spirit has no real self-awareness of its’ true nature or why it’s here. We are given spirit guides (or guardian angels) who try to help us from beyond the veil, but all the beings in that realm (including Creator) can only help us if we are open to such help.

One of the ways that help can arrive is guidance and direction in the form of “signs”.  These are messages specifically for us. Or we can also be given gifts of healing, energy, strength, trust, faith  or patience through a wide variety of means, if we are open to it.

This goes back to the message of yesterday’s blog and previous ones, that there is a reason and a purpose for EVERYTHING that happens in your life. And that purpose is ALWAYS for the highest good for everyone.

When something interesting or unusual or powerful happens to you, that is something to pay special attention to. Like getting stung by a jellyfish – 3 nights in a row!

You know how you can interpret symbols in a dream you might have, as a message from your subconscious mind? In the same way, you can interpret the things that happen to yourself in the “real” waking world, just as if you were interpreting a dream. In fact, the masters say that the dream world is linked more closely to the spirit world, and hence is more “real” than the waking world.

There are many ways to interpret symbols. One way is to look in a dream interpretation book(or the internet) for commonly understood symbols and what they can mean. Keep looking until you find something that resonates with you. or you can meditate on the symbol, paying special attention to what it means to you, and how it makes you feel. If all else fails, you can make up a meaning out of thin air. It is really impossible to get it “wrong” since this is YOUR journey and your path.

Another way to understand gifts is to look at the spiritual energy of the messenger. All living beings have a spiritual energy that carries special gifts and messages. These are known as animal totems.

This is what I looked at to try to understand what was going on with getting stung by a sea creature.

As I meditated and looked at pictures, I realized that there is no other inhabitant of the oceans that more resembles a spirit being than a jellyfish.

 

Then a little research on jellyfish medicine revealed something very interesting. Not from an animal totem guide, but a scientific article showed that a certain type of jellyfish my hold the key to anti-aging, cellular regeneration and even physical immortality! Check it out.

So with just a little meditation and research, I discovered that an experience I had that was very painful and frightening, could have actually been a great gift from spirit.

Here is the funny thing, that is also just a little bit spooky, but it is the Gods’ honest truth.  After I returned home after the 2nd sting, but before I had learned about the anti-aging properties, I passed the bathroom mirror as I was getting into the shower. Something made me pause and look twice at myself. I was struck by how young I looked, for being almost 50.

Coincidence?

Or Divine Providence?

83 days to go: Jellyfish

My last post (85 days: Faith) was inspired by Jellyfish.

That post was about Radiant Acquiescence, the practice of accepting all things with an open heart, as a gift from the Divine. Even (or especially) those things we do not like, want or understand.

 

I’ve been coming to Puerto Rico for five years now, and I always feel like I’m not fully here until I dive into the sea. That helps to clear and balance my energy, and THEN I feel fully present and connected to the island.

My flight got in last Tuesday evening, but I didn’t get to the beach until Wednesday eve. I don’t mind swimming at night. As a matter of fact, I’ve been doing it for most of my adult life. Yes, it can be a bit spooky swimming in the ocean at night, but I’ve never really had much of a problem with it, and it is wonderful to swim under the moon & stars.

The only concern I had was was that the last time I swam at night, during my previous trip to Puerto Rico, I got stung by a jellyfish, which was quite painful and frightening.

But that was such a rare occurrence that I did not worry too much about it. After a nice meditation on the beach, I waded into the smallish surf, then dove into the dark waters to cleanse myself of old energy and fears. Mt usual practice is to swim out about 100 feet to the buoy at the corner of the swimming area. I dive under the rope and sometimes float on my back, meditating under the stars, just outside the boundaries. The water is quite warm this time of year, so it is easy to luxuriate in the boyant salt water. when I am ready, I round the marker and swim leisurely back to shore.

This night, last Wednesday, I was swimming in, almost to shore, when I felt the searing pain in my right arm first, then the left. I knew I had run into a Jellyfish again, but at night, in the dark, nothing can be seen, so there is no way to know if you are getting away from the toxic tentacles or going into them further. As I already mentioned, it is very frightening, and painful. Fortunately, I was close to shore and somehow my torso avoided contact, so just my two arms were in intense pain. Breathing deeply, I made it back to shore, where I began to ponder my situation.

You like this pic? Me too. Imagine swimming into this bad boy at night. I’m happy to report that this is a Nomura Jellyfish from Japan, not found in the Caribbean. I just had to add it for shock value.

The spotted jellyfish below is much more common around Puerto Rico.

 

Turns out that Jellyfish stings are a lot like eating a hot chili pepper. It can burn like hell for a while, but eventually it will subside. Although chilis do not leave  a red, blistering welt on your skin. But that too will pass – after about 24 hrs.

 

OK, there is a point to this creepy tale. That is that I have a strong belief and faith that there is a reason and a purpose for EVERYTHING that happens in my life. And that reason is always for the highest good. I had a hard time finding the good in being attacked by such a creature in the dark of night.

And yet I still believe.

So as I left the beach, I said a silent prayer of thanks to the sea, and the jellyfish, and to God. For a gift that I did not understand, but was certainly powerful.

To be continued…

85 days to go: what is Faith?

Among the many things that we are discussing in this blog, is life on a spiritual path. The ups and downs that one tends to face, as well as the great blessings and rewards.

Radiant Acquiescence is Baha’i concept that is also found in Tantra & Shamanism.

To acquiesce means to accept something. Usually it is a passive or reluctant acceptance. Most of us acquiesce to the inevitable: death, taxes & work. In this case however, we are asked to acquiesce to the will of the Divine. Not passively or reluctantly, but radiantly!

This is easy enough when things go the way we want them to, but happens when they don’t?

This is when Radiant Acquiescence is most valuable.

At the heart of this concept is faith. But what is faith?

There can be and are certainly many answers to that question, so this is not necessarily the definitive one, but perhaps a place to start.

The dictionary defines it as confidence or trust in a person or thing. For our definition, the person or thing is the Divine: Creator or God. But then, what are we trusting? What do we have confidence in?

There is another lofty spiritual concept that can be found in most, if not all religions and spiritual teachings in our world. It is a concept that most people do accept and believe to be true – up to a point. I’m sure that even YOU believe in this, dear reader.

That is that things happen for a reason. The teaching is that there is a reason and a purpose for EVERYTHING that happens in this world. There are no mistakes and no accidents.

Most people I’ve met do believe and accept this truth – until something “bad” happens to them or a loved one. Then everything goes out the window. Then they don’t want to hear about it. They know that whatever happened IS bad and it’s messed up, and are usually not open to any other interpretation. That’s not “bad” either, it’s just the way we are.

Other, more sensible people believe it sometimes, but temper it with the thought that sometimes things just happen. There doesn’t have to be a reason for EVERYTHING.

If you go deeper into this teaching, there is another part to it, that most people are not aware of: There is a reason and a purpose for everything that happens in this world, and it is ALWAYS for the highest good – for everyone involved.

This requires confidence and trust that our Creator has a plan for us (and our particular situation) AND in the essential goodness of Creator & Creation. Both of these can be found in Baha’i, Shamanism & Tantra, as well as most other spiritual teachings. It can also be found in a flower. And deep within our own heart.

So it could be said that Faith is the confidence and trust in the essential goodness of Creator. That there is a reason and a purpose for everything that happens in this world, and it is always for the highest good – for everyone involved.

If you have this kind of faith, then Radiant Acquiescence becomes more than a spiritual practice. It becomes a lifestyle.

And how do you think YOUR life would be if you were to accept EVERYTHING that happened to you radiantly, because you had trust and confidence that here is a reason and a purpose for everything that happens in this world, and it is always for the highest good?

Aristotle said “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it”.

That is the point of our game 100 Layers from God. You don’t have to believe everything we say as The Truth. Just try it on and see what happens.

Try playing the game: live your life in Radiant Acquiescence for just one day, then let us know what happens.

Maybe, if you’re lucky, you might discover that miracles are not always things that happen in the outer world.

Good luck and God bless!

87 days to go: Tantric Relationship

Ever since I learned of it, over 12 years ago, I dreamt of a “Tantric Relationship”.

Sounds hot, doesn’t it?

If you know nothing about Tantra, you know it has something to do with sex or sexual energy. Probably wild, exotic and lasting a looong time.

That’s the reputation of Tantra. In fact, it is true that Tantra is one of the few spiritual teachings in the world that does not condemn sexuality as a negative force, or at least something to overcome if you want to be spiritual.

Traditional religion views sexuality as a base animal instinct. Part of our “lower” self that needs to be subjugated or transcended if we want to be close to God.

Tantra teaches that our sexuality is a great gift from God that is beautiful and sacred. Moreover, we can use that gift to learn, grow and become more spiritual. Our sexuality can actually bring us closer to God.

For all of the beautiful teachings on sacred sexuality, it turns out that it is only a very small part of what Tantra is really about.

Tantra is a vast spiritual teaching, philosophy and practice that puts just as much emphasis on celibacy (bramhacharya) as it does on sexuality. It’s just a different path. But of course no one is interested in hearing about celibacy.

The ultimate goal of Tantra is the same as all religions and spiritual teachings around the world: Divine Union. Becoming one with Creator and creation. Tantra happens to contain a practical system for attaining this goal, and further, it encourages the individual to strive to reach their highest human potential while also giving us the tools to be able reach that supreme state of fulfillment.

 

One of those tools is indeed sacred sexuality. Another is being in relationship with another human being.

Tantra also teaches that love is the essence of all things, and that the only true source of love that can ever fully satisfy us comes from Creator.

We learn about love from other people, but they can never give us everything we need. That is why so many marriages and relationships fail. The people are looking to each other as their main source of love. This is destined to fail.

Human beings were created with a basic need for love. We have a space within us that requires love to be truly happy and fulfilled. There is only one source that is powerful enough to fill that need, and it is not another person.

So the foundation of a “Tantric Relationship” is two people turning first to their Creator as their primary source for love.

Then they turn to each other with their hearts full and all of their needs already met. With open hearts, they are free to love each other fully without having to worry about getting enough love from them.

Another premise of a “TR” is that both people are committed to spiritual growth and reaching their highest potential in life, and supporting their partner to do the same.

Some interpretations (and practices) of Tantra espouse “free love” and polyamory.  This is not my understanding or practice. Another form of  bramhacharya, besides actual celibacy, is faithfulness in monogamy. When two people grow together in love and tust, the safety and intimacy that occurs can propel us to higher heights of spiritual peace and bliss.

When you have this kind of solid foundation of Divine love, human love, commitment to each other and spiritual growth, that is a very special thing, by itself. But then, when you add the Tantric practices of sacred sexuality, look out! That is spiritual/sexual alchemy of the highest order.

Of course, it’s not always so easy to reach this state. It’s hard enough to just find another person that you can get along with. Even if you do find a person who is compatible and shares an interest and desire for such a relationship, the path can be difficult and rocky. To attain the heights of spiritual bliss, one must first heal the deep wounds of the heart. This is a challenge and a commitment of it’s own, and one that relationships are particularly good for. Many souls cannot deal with the level of fear and discomfort that can arise on such an intense healing path. But if you can, the rewards are immeasurable.

For all these years, I’ve been dreaming of an opportunity to love and grow together like this, but my passion and desire had never been shared by any of my partners.

Until now.

Those of you who know my story, know of my magical journey to Puerto Rico. This enchanted island has drawn me to her shores and given me so much. Now she’s given me one of her own. A daughter of the earth whose love and passion for the Divine matches my own. For the first time in my life, I feel like I have a real chance to achieve what most only dream of.

But the most beautiful part of it is that the magnificent dream of a Tantric Relationship is only a small part of what is really possible here. That is to reach our own potentials, to fulfill our destinies. To play our parts in this great global transformation that is occurring right now, before our eyes, and to be of service to the Earth and Humanity.

For that, I am eternally grateful to my beloved Creator and my true love, Marién.

88 days to go: I love you Peter

It was summertime in Yogaville.

Yes, it is a real place. The Satchidananda Ashram in Virginia is a self contained community, not at all disconnected from the world, but operating on a slightly different frequency.

I was there for a workshop by Krishna Das. 3 days of Kirtan, and a week of immersion in Yoga, prayer & meditation.

One day during lunch, as I was sitting in the cafeteria, chatting with the woman sitting next to me, she turned to me and said “you know what YOU should do?”

“You should find a mirror, look yourself deeply in the eyes and tell yourself you love yourself. Say: I love you Peter”

Now I had never met this woman before, and had only been chatting with her for a couple of minutes before she told what I should do. I thought that it was a bit presumptuous of her. I have been practicing Yoga and doing intensive self healing work for decades by this point in my life, including inner child work. And I was doing pretty well. Feeling pretty good about myself and my life. Not really feeling a need to do a silly mirror exercise, prescribed by someone who did not know me at all.

But I have come to realize that sometimes God speaks to us through other people. So I decided to give it a go.

I found a mirror – in a private place – I looked myself deeply in the eyes, smiling and feeling a little silly, I said “I love you Peter”.

I know from past experience that it can often take a little bit of time for something to sink in, whether it’s a meditation, affirmation or whatever. So I held my own gaze and repeated myself “I love you Peter”.

What I was not expecting, was to receive an answer back.

“No you don’t”

What?     Wow.      Where is that coming from ?

Turns out it was coming from a place deep inside where I still felt hurt, fear and mistrust.

This was the beginning of a process (and a practice) that has lasted over 4 years, and is still going on to this day.

That is a process of loving and accepting myself.

I learned that I cannot really love myself until I accept myself. If there is a part of me that I do not accept or like, then there is a part of myself that I do not love.

I learned that one cannot simply “love themselves”  once and be done with it. No, it’s an ongoing relationship, just like with another person. There are ups and downs. Some days I can love myself utterly, inside and out. Other days I can’t even look myself in the eye because I feel embarrassed or guilty or ashamed of some part of me. Or I just don’t like what I see.

It is a process and a practice.  Looking myself in the eyes – EVERY DAY – and telling myself: I love you Peter.

Some days I take a little convincing, but it becomes easier with every passing day, and eventually that part of me, deep inside, relaxes a little and opens up, and starts to believe me.

When you can open up and accept love from yourself, only then can you truly accept it from others. Then you can also accept the ultimate love: from your Creator.

That’s when EVERYTHING opens up.

Looking at my life I see that only Love Has been my soul’s companion.  From deep inside My soul cries out: Do not wait! Surrender! For the sake of Love. ~ RUMI

 

Tonight, I gave my daughter a magic mirror and suggested she try this herself.

Now I am suggesting that YOU try it.

Go ahead, give it a try, you might just love it.

You might just love yourself.

91 Days to go: Ode to Cedarburg

It’s only going to be 3 months, but I’m getting all sentimental about leaving my beloved home.

In the last 13 years, I’ve never been away from this place for more than 3 weeks.

It’s like an enchanted park where I live. So peaceful and lovely. Green and lush, there are many trees and ponds. In fact, it is right beside an actual park.

One can hear the breeze whisper through the leaves and the birds singing their songs. The neighborhood kids play in the street, and my boys’ school is right across the street.

People are very friendly and relaxed here. Even driving is so easy and stress free.

Cedarburg is a small town (population 10,000), and has that small town charm. It is surrounded farms and countryside. As I write, I can hear a coyote howl in the distance. Yet it is only a 30 min drive to downtown Milwaukee, with a world class art, music and theatre scene. Tomorrow my daughter sings with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.

I could wax on poetically all night long about the beauty, power and magic of Cedarburg and Wisconsin. But I wasn’t always so thrilled to be here.

While I did grow up here, I left as soon as I graduated high school to see the world. I haven’t been to most places, but since then I have lived in many amazing places: California; Oregon (on Mt. Hood); Aspen, Colorado; Kampala, Uganda.

So when I moved back to Wisconsin after more than a decade away, it was just a little too “nice” for my taste. Too normal, too domesticated, too suburban american. For several years after my return, I felt trapped in a place that did not feed my wild heart.

But that was my fault. I was not seeing beyond the surface and not connecting to the true spirit of this place.

It started gradually, as slowly I realized that there is some very special and powerful spiritual energy here in Wisconsin. I will not go into most of her secrets tonight, just a glimpse into my life here in Cedarburg.

The park is literally right at my front door.

Half a block will take you to the 3 guardians: 3 enormous weeping willows that form a portal into a higher frequency.

With the pond on the left and the woods on the right, we hike across the field to Grandmother willow. She is ancient, wise and compassionate, ready to share her love and teach us patience. She lives at the base of a very special hill.

I call it Ceremonial Hill. More ancient than Grandmother, hill has seen countless generations come and go. And has helped in the healing & awakening of many throughout the ages. We go to hill to pray and meditate, to play and stretch, to do Yoga and daydream. We go to hill on the full moon and on the Solstices and Equinoxes.

One such full moon, a young fox came out and came up to the top of the hill where a medicine wheel circle of about 13 souls were meditating. He circled our circle with his blessing, then disappeared into the night.

I saw fox just about every day over the next week or two. We became good friends. We danced together under the moon and he grabbed my hat, wanting me to make chase.

There are also many deer and birds and raccoons who live here and bless us with their powerful medicine. All in peace and in harmony.

Today at the hill, there was a flock of  canadian geese in the field. Before I left, they had all taken flight, heading south for the winter.

It’s time for me to follow.

93 Days to go: Why Puerto Rico?

I first arrived on this Island in October of 2007.

Since then I have been here approx 20 times, presenting as many workshops, as well as numerous classes, meditations, Vision Quests and individual healing sessions.

People ask me, why did you choose Puerto Rico?

I feel like it’s the other way around:  Puerto Rico chose me.

It was Fall of ’07, and I was seeking a new path for my life. While planning a personal vision quest to Sedona Arizona, I came up against some major road blocks.  At the last minute, the entire trip fell through.  I still wanted to go to the Southwest, but something kept blocking every avenue.  At the last possible moment, less than a week before my planned quest, an opportunity came to me, to visit Puerto Rico. I knew nothing about it, beyond being an island in the Carribean.  It’s not the desert, I thought, but it will do.

I was entranced by the intense beauty and vibrant energy of the island. The very first night I swam out about 1/4 mile from shore and floated in the warm water for hours under the stars  in the most extraordinary meditation. Right where the Caribbean sea meets the Atlantic. I was attuning to the frequencies of the island, the sea, the earth and the stars. It felt good. REALLY good!

I met a spirit contact, who promptly connected me to a Yoga retreat in the mountains (Samnyasin/La Finca). Everything flowed smoothly and 3 months later (Jan 08) I was back again presenting my first workshop in Puerto Rico, on Tantric Massage.

For some reason, the people of Puerto Rico really understand and appreciate my work. I feel very humbled by the love, acceptance and support I’ve received from my friends here. Thank you, thank you, thank you. It is a true blessing.  Because of this I have been returning to the island 3 to 4 times per year to present workshop, teach classes,  and offer medicine wheel ceremonies on the beach and the mountains. I also spend a good deal of time in private sessions.

One thing that really struck me from the beginning is the high level of spiritual consciousness on this island. There are so many people here who are very advanced spiritually, and very awakened. It is really inspiring to me. There seems to be a great deal of spiritual activity going on in this small island. In addition to all of the amazing people who already live on the island, there are a great number of spiritual teachers, Yogis and Shamans who come here on a regular basis. Over the past 5 years, I have discovered some AMAZING things going on here, many of which I have not shared yet. I believe that now may be the time. And this Blog may be the forum.

A sneak preview:

Just as our bodies have energy centers, known as Chakras, the earth also has Chakras that are roughly equivalent to those in our body.

I have recently become aware of a certain part of Puerto Rico that is said to be the throat chakra (Vishuddha) for the entire planet. This would explain the rapid rate of spiritual awakenings here. It is also said that PR is on the edge of the ancient civilization of Atlantis, and this site was used for purposes both good and selfish by ancestors that knew the secrets of energy. This place has been re-discovered recently and is now in the process of being cleared, balanced and healed. When the time is right, the world will once again benefit from the all healing powers of this extraordinary phenomena.

 

 

95 Days to go: Tantric Healing

Tantric Healing is an ultimate form of healing that goes beyond the physical.

Everyone wants to be healed of their physical pain and ailments, and there is nothing wrong with that. But Tantra is an ancient teaching of energy and spirit that reveals a greater reality.

That we are spiritual beings in a physical body. We are here on this earth for a reason. Each soul has a purpose and a mission in life, and many lessons to learn.
In addition to our physical body, we also have an energy body or “light body” composed of Chakras, Nadis, energy meridians, Aura & Kundalini. This light body is what supports the health & growth of the physical body, the emotional body, the mental body and the spirit body.

When something is out of balance, out of harmony or in a state of dis-ease, a solution can always be found in the light body. Any pain or problem in the physical, emotional, mental or spiritual part of you or your life can be healed and brought into harmony through the awakening & balancing of the light body. It is the future of human evolution. It is the complete integration of spirit with matter. It is also one of the primary concepts of the game (100 Layers).

Over 27 years, I have learned how to work with the light body and connect it directly to each of the elements. This is a very efficient and powerful way to activate, clear and balance the light body. In a private session I do that for my clients while they lie passively on the massage table in a deep state of relaxation. Connecting, opening and releasing to the deep power of the elements and Creator.

I love doing this work, and have helped hundreds, perhaps thousands over almost 3 decades. But I have been called to reach out and help many more. In an individual healing session, I do all the work for you, but in a workshop, I teach you how to do it for yourself. That is also the purpose of the book and DVD series.

Every day more people are connecting and awakening to their true powers.  It’s beginning to sound like popcorn!

I am called to help fill God’s popcorn bowl.

Are YOU ready to POP?

Can you hear the call?

97 Days To Go: What is real?

Have you ever awoken from a bad dream, with great relief that it was only a dream, and it wasn’t real?

This is perhaps how the human soul feels upon physical death, when it is released from the bonds of body and mind.

100 Layers is a game, but it is based on the true spiritual teachings of three traditions. Approximately 5,00o years separates the ancient wisdom of Tantra and Shamanism from the most recent divine revelation of Baha’i. Yet they are all saying the same thing: There is a greater reality that exists beyond the physical world. We cannot see, hear or touch it with our physical senses, but if one is very still, you can feel it in your heart. In fact, this is a concept shared by virtually all religions and spiritual teachings around the world.

This can be a little difficult to wrap your mind around. On one hand, we are told that this “spirit realm” exists all around us, not confined by time or space, and it is unbelievable beautiful. On the other hand, we are also told that it is beyond our ability to comprehend. No words can convey the richness and beauty of what the mind cannot conceive. Yet this invisible, unknowable realm is part of the ultimate goal of life. It is what gives up hope and motivates us (if you are good, you will go to heaven).

We know that this is more than just a story or a myth from the many documented cases of Near Death Experiences (NDE’s). People whose physical bodies have shut down and were clinically dead for some amount of time, and then somehow revived have reported an awareness of experience beyond the physical body. In most cases there is a great abundance of love and light, often meeting departed relatives and loved ones.

While most people wait until their time comes (physical death), spiritual masters of all traditions have told us that it is possible to connect with that realm of spirit before we leave our body. More than possible, they say that it is the ultimate achievement of being human. It is the purpose we were created for, to awaken to our true nature a spiritual beings and to connect with the Spirit realm and the Creator of all.

We see this happening all around us these days. Don’t you know many people who already have this awareness?

Truly, this kind of awaking is a matter of degree. It’s one thing to have an awareness of this concept, and another thing to really believe and accept it. Then something else all together to live your life based on a reality you cannot see with your eyes.

The thing is, if you can do that, then life becomes really, really good. If you can harmonize the energy of your life with the energy of the spirit realm, you will have a life full of ease, joy and abundance.

This is the goal of 100 layers, and it is the promise of all the divine teachings and spiritual masters who have made it there before us.

We are working with the energy of the earth  and other elements to reach our goal. We are also working with the energy of the times.

This years Winter Solstice, 12/21/12,  is the end of an old cycle and the beginning of an age of spiritual awakening.

It is the destiny of all humanity, including you.

97 days to go.

 

 

99 Days to go: A vision for the future

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket

That’s the traditional wisdom. It’s good sound advice, and smart.

Too bad I’m not following it.

At the risk of mixing metaphors, I’ve hitched my wagon to a star and put all of my eggs in a basket that’s in the wagon.

When the vision (of 100 Layers) came to me, it was as if it had already happened. Like it was a done deal. I was living and experiencing a future thread of my life.

I was in the mountains of central Puerto Rico, attending a very powerful & sacred Shamanic ceremony. In the midst of my journey, I could see several possible future threads, but this is the one that really called to my heart and made my spirit sing. I was doing my work. My healing work, with individuals and groups. Classes, workshops, tropical retreats, as I’ve been doing for the past 26 years of my life, in one form or another. But it was presented in a different way. A way that the average person on the street could understand and appreciate, without the new age jargon and superstitious mysticism (well, maybe a little). The Vision was like watching a rose bloom, only the rosebud was my life. As it opened up I could see, understand and even experience more of what was occurring.

It came to me so simple and elegant. So clear and precise: 100 Layers from God.

It was a vision from the realm of spirit. A possible future which already exists, on some level. In this future I am doing my work on a much larger scale than ever before, reaching hundreds and thousands of people. There is a book, and a DVD set. They all work together with the classes, workshops and healing sessions to form a beautiful and intricate tapestry of light, color, sound and love. I am so happy, content and at peace. I am helping so many people, and making a real difference in their lives and the world. Abundance flows all around me and through me. A great abundance of joy, love, money and time. There is no stress and no fear. Everything is in Divine Order.

This is the basket that holds all of my eggs. This is the star that is guiding my wagon.

It is true that visions, like dreams, can have many different meanings and interpretations. I choose to believe that I was shown a glimpse of a real future, that is attainable. Not just for me, but for my children, my family, my dear friends, my clients and ultimately for everyone.

The world is changing. Faster that we can imagine. What if it’s true that we are really at the end of a 6,000 year cycle of civilization? The end of the Piscean age, and the beginning of the Age of Aquarious. What if it’s true that the changes are more than just physical, and we are all going through a process of awakening, along with the Earth? Are you ready?

The thing that I love the most about 100 Layers, is that it’s a game. We can have fun with it. There is no right or wrong way to do it. You can’t screw it up. But if we just play along, we can have a great time and quite possible step into a future that is perfect for us in every way: our destiny.  100 Layers says that you can have that.
