In 2015 I received energy attunements containing the symbols that were channeled to a friend of mine during one of her painting journeys. I can only describe the energy as galactic. It felt like the energy of a star, powerful but at the same time very comforting and healing. I was able to release a lot of very old "karmic" stuff that had been deeply rooted. What follows is a story of how my galactic journey began.
I've always believed in star beings but never gave them too much thought. My first connection with cosmic beings occurred about 10 years ago in Philadelphia, PA. I walked into my son's apartment on famous South Street to listen to them play music and watch them make art. It was a typical mid-week evening. Next thing I knew, a woman came in carrying a large, clear crystal skull. There was immediate recognition. I knew one of the Mayan crystal skulls was in town for an event. I wasn't into crystals at the time and certainly not skulls so my excitement was really unusual for me. I watched her hug one of the room-mates who is a yoga instructor and he made his introductions, not really paying much attention to the skull in her arms. I yelled out "Do you guys have any idea of the significance of this being here?!" The woman smiled and asked me if I wanted to hold it. The skull had a name but I can't remember what it is. She placed the skull in my hands which went immediately to my lap. I have never seen a more perfect crystal skull. There was not one crack or even variance in the color. It was perfect in every way. I tried to raise the skull to my forehead but as I lifted the skull got heavier and heavier until I had no choice but to bring my arms back down. I held it in my lap for a while blissing out on the energy. It was such a strange and surreal experience for me. That night I had dreams of floating in space. Sight-seeing the universe. I met my first shaman teacher shortly after that experience who mostly taught me how to journey for healing (soul retrievals, attachment removal, etc) which opened up the visual sense and third eye. When I moved out to the desert the star beings started coming to me more often in my dreams and journeys. Teaching me about love for our planet and all the beings living here. Teaching me about fear and how it leads to violence. Teaching me how to recognize light and darkness. I learned more about energy from them and how the earth sends out powerful energy into the universe just like a neutron star. These beautiful guides have also protected myself and my loved ones. My intention while working with star beings is to to connect with the energy of the cosmos for the greatest healing good of all.
Excerpt from a journey I had while drumming for private shamanism student.
Quick transition from listening to the drum to walking up through the clouds. I merged with Puma and I could see the silhouette of Dancing Raven, my psycho-pomp guide. He looked huge and powerful. We broke through the clouds and popped out into space. We soared higher and higher until we slammed into a neutron star. The brightness faded as we floated a few layers into the star. There was a pulsing crystal city. My excitement grew as Dancing Raven led me in a procession through a crystal temple. It felt like I was coming home. I started to analyze everything I was seeing and experiencing. Dancing Raven squeezed my hand and said "stay here, be present". There were many animal spirits with me including my wolf who is very large and bluish in color. I was placed on a throne and a cap made of crystal was placed on my head. My body in the physical world started to buzz. Dancing Raven placed his hands on my feet to balance the energies. Full body buzz. I sat on the crystal throne wearing the crystal cap and looked at my feet. The crystal ground around my feet began to turn to grass and flowers then spread. I heard cheering and felt joy as this new reality began to unfold around me. Spirit said "You and the others have the ability to create this world." My soul accepted and I began to chant in my mind with the beat of my drum, "love" "peace" "balance". My guide and I, with the help of the spirits of the land, pulled the vision of heaven into this reality. I was suddenly aware of feeling split. There was the physical me, drumming in the middle world, and the journeying me, with my guides and the dimension we just merged. I was again reminded that "What's true in our minds is true" and that we have the power to create our own paradise through the power of our thoughts.
