Which way do you want to look at it?

We are guided by two maps:

2headed-coinA vision map— a deliberate plan for our future.
A default map—which is made up from our past.

Our world is a direct result of our focus. There are four factors unconsciously guiding our focus.

  1.  You can only focus on one thing at a time.
  2.  Avoiding something attracts it to you.
  3.  You get more of what you focus on.
  4.   In the absence of a positive goal, we tend to focus on what we don’t want.

I have an example from years ago where I learned about focus the hard way. It was an unfortunate mishap when I was learning to skydive. This was so long ago there was no such thing as tandem diving with an instructor. You step out on the plane’s strut and let go all by yourself, hoping to God you remember everything you learned in ground school. It was my first jump. When the instructor gave me the instruction to jump I was paralyzed with anxiety. When he yelled “JUMP” even louder, I still couldn’t let go. Finally realizing I couldn’t climb back in the plane, and the pilot couldn’t land with me hanging onto the wing…I had to let go.

pastedgraphic-2We were supposed to land as near as we could to a target, a big white ‘X’ painted on the ground. Well, it had taken me so long to finally decide to jump that I wasn’t anywhere near the field where the target was. Remember my four focus factors? There was no ‘X’. I had no goal. As I was dropping to earth, I noticed that the field where I would end up was mostly clear…except for a barbed wire fence that ran through it.

The closer I got to landing, the more I focused on avoiding the fence. Focus Factor #3— You get more of what you focus on. Yep. You sure do. With unbelievable accuracy, I landed right on the barbed wire fence!

Let’s look at a model for how much time we are focused on our goal or Forward Focused. Versus how much time we are trying to avoid or protect ourselves from what we don’t want—which inadvertently takes us backward, away from our goal.

forward-focus-1

Our perspective, our focus determines our attitude. Our attitude determines the outcome. So which way do you want to look at it—stressed or desserts? it’s all up to you.

Chocolate anyone?

Comfort zone

It’s not monsters under the bed or even the fear of death that paralyzes us the most. It is our ever present, deeply rooted fear of the unfamiliar. We become racist because of this; isolationist because of this; stuck in our old ruts because of this.

Of course we argue that it is natural to be afraid of the unknown. But is it? Isn’t the unknown always the place of growth? Could we ever have given up crawling and learned to walk if the fear of the unknown is hardwired into us? Babies and toddlers actually test everything that is unfamiliar—usually by sticking it in their mouth.

Those of you who know me know that I seek out the unfamiliar; I push the limits. Yet that fear of the unfamiliar is always there in me and all of us. Here’s a small example that inspired me to write this Blog:

gentle yogaI’m finally home from traveling for awhile so decided to begin a yoga practice. I put on my yoga clothes, drove to the nearby ‘Yoga One’ studio— imagining soft, spiritual yoga with peaceful statues of Buddha overlooking the practitioners. They didn’t have a class at that time so I took my mat and drove to another studio—one whose very name intimidated me: ‘Core Power Yoga’—featuring hot yoga in a room at 110°F.! (You have to understand that I don’t exactly have a yoga body. My deep forward bend looks exactly like my halfway bend.) That’s when my fear of the unfamiliar raised its voice. I recognized it immediately as it spoke in my head. “Jonette, do you really think you can do hot, power yoga? Don’t you want to go home and find an easy class on YouTube?”

hot yogaThe afraid-of-the-unfamiliar-Jonette kept talking in my head as I continued to march into the intimidating studio and sign up for the class that was starting in three minutes.

I did OK and not a single person laughed at me when my eagle pose collapsed, or my cobra looked more like road-kill. At the end of the longest, hottest class I’ve ever taken, I actually vowed to come back. But next time I’ll bring a towel…

So no matter how brave you are, notice how many times that niggling fear of the unfamiliar keeps you from trying new things that aren’t in any way inherently scary or dangerous.

Let me know how it goes…

There is so much growth in the collective consciousness that even if we don’t try to grow– we are being lifted. We seek spiritual growth to make our life better. We seek clarity, a path away from fear. We seek inner contentment. So how do you know it’s working?

Sometimes you notice these ‘Symptoms of Spiritual Awakening.’ The biggest thing I see is less worry and less attachment to drama of any kind. I see more synchronicity in my life. Things simply flow better. But, there may be some big changes you have to go through first. Perhaps you need to let go of something or some pattern that has been holding you back. Perhaps you need to face that favorite emotion — anger, victim, insecurity… own it, love it, and move past it.

In these times we are supported in working through our greatest challenges! You are not alone!

This is a list compiled from many sources— including my own experiences— of changes we may experience as we increase our frequency and expand our consciousness to a more awakened state. 

“This is the time of emergence… awakening, a time of breaking through all old limitations. We entered the cocoon as a caterpillar and now it is time to burst free as a butterfly!”  –

On the internet lately there has been a ‘chain-letter’ going around asking for us to share some writing that has been inspirational to us. I always go back to the well-known poem ‘IF’ by Rudyard Kipling. I love it’s timeless advice on living your own truth, meeting adversity, and just plain being the kind of person we all should be!!  

Over the years I’ve tried to re-write the ending so that it included females, but couldn’t find anything that rhymed with ‘daughter.’ I even wrote my own version of an inspirational poem in 1977 — and had to use the term ‘man’ to include women too. No matter, these words remind us what strength of character is all about. 

Here is Rudyard Kipling’s world-famous poem — ‘If ’ and Jonette Crowley’s totally unknown poem — ‘Pearls of Wisdom; Grains of Sand.’  

if

IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
‘ Or walk with Kings – nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!

‘Pearls of Wisdom, Grains of Sand’

by Jonette Crowley, 1977

pearls

Pearls of wisdom, grains of sand.
It takes both to make a man.
Sifting grains are naught to hold,
And once grasped take will to mold.

Singly sand gets in the eyes.
It pokes and scrapes and grits and grinds,
Or rubs the skin and scratches tear.
It hides the sun and chokes the air.

Together sand a mountain rise.
But weak in wind, it never lies.
It changes, moves and slips too fast
Through narrow waist of hour glass.

Now pearls, they glisten smooth and fair.
A milky pure, the sand gem’s rare.
A flawless orb, when at its best,
Has adorned many beauties’s breast.

Don’t curse the sand, the seed of pearl,
But hold it close and slowly twirl
And round it liquid satin swirl.
Behold, from sand and time—a pearl.

Though some may say, reject the grain and
take the gem that’s here today,
Take some of both, and take care, not to
Give your sand away.
Pearls of wisdom, grains of sand.
It takes both to make a man.

I found this ‘changing sands’ photograph from Mui Ne, Vietnam when I was writing this blog.  Since I believe there is no coincidences, I felt that I should add on some information about my next spiritual adventure to Cambodia and Vietnam.  Maybe this blog will reach someone who feels compelled to join us -since that is how the universe works 🙂 

Mui Ne Vietnam Sand Dunes

Sand Dunes – Mui Ne, Vietnam

I have been guided to lead a series of 3 journeys with the mission to help lift human consciousness.  ‘The Spiritual Magic of Cambodia and Vietnam’ (Nov. 2–13, with optional 3-day beach extension) is the first stop of a three part spiritual odyssey for humanity.  We invite you to be part of this life-changing journey.

 

“Our focus will be accessing the Spirit in the ancient temples of Angkor Wat— a power place seemingly out of time that calls us forward to explore the truth of humanity and our destiny. The spiritual jewel of Indochina, Angkor Wat is a breathtaking complex built to harmonize earth and stars. We’ll be immersed in the beauty of waterways and rice fields. We’ll hold healing in our hearts for the gentle people who have endured such war and suffering in this magical land. Even Our spiritual mission is both global and deeply spiritual, seeking our own pathway to enlightenment.” – Jonette

“There are so many ways that we can access higher, quantum consciousness to heal ourselves and others.”

11164501_sOne way is to set up a virtual list for healing prayers. I’ve done this for months with some amazing results. I have a pretty piece of paper on my altar, with 2 of my favorite crystals on top of the paper. (Of course pretty paper and crystals or even an altar aren’t important. What is important is the loving intention for continuous healing.)

Every time I learn of someone who needs healing I write their name on my list, with the intention that whenever I am in a high meditation, healing space, or doing Soul Body Fusion® they will receive it too.

In addition, I imagine that my healing list is connected to every healing/prayer list in the world, so that the names on my list also receive healing virtually from those who are praying for others. Conversely, when I pray for the people on my list, I intend for my prayers to go to everyone on every such list in the world. This works much like shared computing, where huge calculations are done on hundreds of thousands of distributed PC’s, tapping into unused computing capacity.

File Dec 08, 5 13 04 PMSo why not start today? Get out a piece of paper, write your name on the top…(oops, I forgot to have my name on my list… just added it. ;-)), and write down the names of everyone you know who could use some extra love, healing and prayers. We will all connect to everyone else’s list and let’s see what miracles our Virtual Healing Lists can do!!


Below is a lighthearted excerpt from my book: Soul Body Fusion: The Missing Piece for Healing and Beyond. It tells how I realized the importance of intention in healing, and how just having the lists begins to allow everyone to help each other!

In another humorous incident about a decade later, I was reminded again that it’s not about me. At the time my healing abilities were growing significantly as my spiritual work accelerated, so I thought it would be nice to offer free remote healing for the month of May. I assumed that it would stretch and sharpen my skills and hopefully help people I wouldn’t otherwise reach. I asked my office assistant Dave to send an email out only to our inner group of one hundred or so students, offering free healing for a month. They were to email me their name, age, physical location, and illness or problem.

My plan was to write down all their details and work on each person individually every morning and night. The emailed requests for help came in. Then they poured in. From all over the world hundreds and hundreds of detailed requests flooded my electronic in-basket! I didn’t know these people! Many were from countries I had never visited. What happened here? Dave sheepishly admitted that he had misunderstood my request to offer free healing to a small segment of my students. Instead he sent the offer to our entire database, and many sent it to their databases as well!

With so many heartfelt requests for healing I couldn’t do them one at a time as I had planned. I printed out pages and pages of names and illnesses. My intention was to meditate and to visualize gathering them together into an ethereal healing temple in order to work on them en masse.

Once I got myself into a high and settled space, I planned to read the lists to begin the healing. But an amazing vision appeared in my mind’s eye. The hundreds of people weren’t waiting for me to do healing on them! They were milling about, connecting, touching, talking, and healing each other! A person with good legs and a bad liver was being healed by a person with bad legs and a good liver. My jaw dropped. I wasn’t needed!

Perhaps my role was to invite them, through my intention, to a high vibrational space where healing naturally happens. I laughed a long time and have never taken my healing powers seriously again. It isn’t about me and it isn’t about you. Isn’t that a huge relief?

What would Jesus DoIn the Christian community there has been a movement to ask yourself “What would Jesus do?” before saying something or taking an action. I find it’s a good guide to live by.

whiteeagle copy

Some years ago a woman I knew…the artist who did the White Eagle painting that I use “Through the Portal”, called me from a mental hospital. I hadn’t seen or heard from her in years. She was an acquaintance, not a friend. She requested if she could stay with us for a few days as she needed a place to go in order to be discharged from the hospital. Her sister couldn’t take her in. I hesitated… I really didn’t know her or her mental condition. In that momentary silence, the question: “What would Jesus do?” came to my mind. Considering the question, I answered the only thing I could have… “Of course.”

She arrived ragged, unkept and unwashed. She was grateful and kind. Evidently she had been homeless, living in her car for some time, endlessly walking the aisles of a grocery store, talking to her voices.

Once we got her settled she said, “Oh, I have something in my car I’ve been carrying around. I’ll give it to you.”

I couldn’t begin to imagine what it might be. She returned with a large, framed watRobin2ercolor of a robin in an autumn tree—a beautiful piece that she had painted in her better years.

Humbly I accepted the unexpected gift. The Universe might have been thanking me for acting favorably on the question: “What would Jesus do?” (WWJD?)

The painting hangs proudly over my mantle, reminding me that what I receive is always so much more than what I give.

WWJD? Came up last month in response to a young woman’s question during an Oracle reading. “I’d like to get a tattoo. Should I get a cross or lotus flower?” The question “What would Jesus do?” immediately came to mind. “Get a lotus,” was my answer. I felt quite sure that Jesus wouldn’t wear a cross.

While I thought about it, Jesus would probably be appalled if he popped into the middle of the Vatican today. (I’m happy that at least to some extent we appear to have a Pope who is asking himself that question.)

So, what would Jesus do?

Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, It will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.”

― John O’Donohue from Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom 

Here is a compilation of my daily pictures and facebook postings from Week 2 of my walk from Portugal to Spain on the Camino Santiago de Compostela.  Thanks for being a part of this journey and my love to all of you for your encouraging comments, facebook likes and energetic connections!  May you all follow your soul’s path – wherever it may lead you!

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us” – H.S. Haskins

Late now so will post more tomorrow. Was in the flow all day. Ended with a beer and even the photo was great! 🍺

Sending you all blessings and hugs from the Camino!!

 

Day 8 on the Camino

day 8

“The Camino’s synchronistic magic showed up a couple of times “

Sometimes you can feel that the path is on ancient lei lines or power spots, and sometimes the energy is dead and it’s just a path. I noticed that the hotspots are often around churches, and the ancient cobbled paths through the forests.

Yesterday, the Camino’s synchronistic magic showed up a couple of times in quick succession. Along the Way a man on a bicycle stopped to ask if we needed help. He wanted to write down the addresses of some places to stay in the next town. Right there on the ground was a clean, white piece of cardboard… perfect for writing… Just when he needed it. It turns out that he is the guy who made the online maps that we have used for the Portuguese coastal Camino! THE expert was there on his bike when we needed him!

Then we stopped for our normal lunch of cheese, canned sardines and bread. After lunch, I popped my last piece of gum into my mouth, silently thinking “I’ll need to get more gum.” Five minutes later a man who was outside working in his yard wished us the standard “Buen Camino!” Then, “Wait, one minute.” He ran to his car, got out a packet of gum and handed it to me! You just can’t make this stuff up!😀

Today we took it a little easier, stopping for beautiful local food at a farm/café in the country. Anne and Nico split off from Michael and me as they want to make more distance every day. With just two of us it freed us up to stay in a hotel instead of a pilgrim’s hostel. I am so grateful to not need my sleeping bag and to have a hair dryer!

Now we’re off to find tapas and red wine!
Thanks for being part of this journey with me! (Hope your feet weren’t too sore today… I have to admit that one ankle hurt just a little bit)

 

Day 9 of the Camino

Day9

“I had the feeling that we would pass through a golden gate that would be a breakthrough for even greater abundance”

Day 9 mineral springsMy legs are more sore but there’s more joy in my steps. It was a beautiful and warm sunny day! My Swedish friend Mikael and I worked with the golden energies of the path. At one point Michael, who is clairvoyant too, ‘saw’ radiant beings behind us. All part of the team! It is fun to compare notes with what we are sensing on the road as we walk. I got that we would pass through a golden gate that would be a breakthrough for even greater abundance. I recognized it when we came to a grape arbor that we walked under, some of the autumn leaves gold in the sun. The abundance was there in beautiful bunches of perfectly ripe grapes! It was such a lovely physical metaphor!

There are more pilgrims now since we are only three days out from Santiago. After staying at simple auberges, tonight we opted for a hotel that has a natural thermal whirlpool!

 

Day 10 of the Camino

Day10

We just kept walking today. Sometimes it was through beautiful woods. And a little bit through less than lovely industrial areas. The autumn is so rich and vibrant here. Grapes still hang on some vines. Farmers are cutting down their corn stalks. Pumpkins are turning orange in the fields. Everywhere is the scent of fallen leaves. Again it was sunny and warm.Day 10 pumpkinsLast night I heard the name ‘Steven’ in my mind. “Who is Steven,” I asked, getting no answer. The first thing today we met a solo pilgrim…an Englishman. His name– Steven. He joined Mikael and me. Still don’t know the significance but I trust it is fulfilling a higher purpose.

May I brag just a bit? Both my companions are super fit men in their 40’s. Mikael climbs mountains in Norway and Steven is an ultra- marathoner. At the end of our long day’s walk I’m doing better than both of them.😀Day 10 white horse

The sweetest memory from today was watching an old white horse and his best friend– a young calf walking down the road together. No human in sight, just the two of them out for a stroll.

 

Day 11 of the Camino

Day11

“It seems so clear now that life really is about the journey and never about the destination”

Pilgrimage completed!  We walked several hours before the sun rose today so we could make it to Santiago de Compostela by noon.  220 km plus walking over 11 days brought us to this cathedral in Spain. Thousands of other pilgrims converged here for the daily pilgrim’s mass. We couldn’t understand the Spanish words, but the feeling of having accomplished something was there within each of our hearts. We each walked this Way with the help of the others who were there to share a laugh, point us in the right direction, or simple call out “Buen Camino!”day 11 having a coke

Reaching Santiago made me feel sad that the walking is over, yet happy to have reached the destination. I feel lighter. I have clarity on the next book that I will write. It seems so clear now that life really is about the journey and never about the destination. The end point just gives us the reason for the journey.

Tonight we celebrated with sangria and paella in the lively town center of Santiago. Following the coastal road from Porto, Portugal to here in Spain has been such a treasure!Day 11 Dinner in Santiago

Buen Camino or ‘Good Way’ to you!

 

Day 12 of the Camino

Day12

“Time to just be – enjoying each moment for what it offers without needing to explain it or expect anything else”

A sunny Sunday in Finesterra, Spain — the ‘End of the World’

day 12 0 km marker in FinisterreFor many people the Camino does not end in Santiago de Compostela, but further at the most western point of Europe. Michael and I didn’t have time to walk the three days here so we took a bus along the lovely coast. Spiritually, it felt that every thing came together on the bus ride. I could easily lift to a high space of well-being, tranquility and light. I’m asking that the change be deep and permanent. Grace fills me up in this infinite moment.

The beautiful, warm day felt like a reward for our trek. We enjoyed time on a beach watching the powerful waves roll in. Then we walked to the lighthouse and the Cape at the edge of the world.

It felt wonderful to stay in a nice hotel, eat great seafood, and not have to carry a backpack anywhere! Yet it’s clear that we are still pilgrims because we are wearing our smelly hiking clothes. (Somehow washing things out by hand in the sink just does not get them clean.)

The Camino has been an adventure. The pace has allowed the time to just be, enjoying each moment for what it offers without needing to explain it or expect anything else. Someone asked if I would do another Camino. I doubt it –  as there are so many things to explore in this world and so many journeys to walk.

Blessings and love from the end of the world!

 

Day 13- Back in Santiago

day13

“Personal vanity fades away on the Camino”

Officially my Camino journey is over. Today I arrived in Santiago de Compostela for the second time, but this time on a bus from Finesterra.

There was a funny thing that happened this week that has nothing to do with walking or spiritual growth. I carried in my backpack a cheap plastic brush because it is light weight. In one hotel we stayed at there was the luxury of a blow dryer. A really hot blow dryer… While I was trying to straighten my naturally curly hair the unthinkable happened… My cheap plastic hair brush melted into my hair! Now globs of black plastic were permanently stuck to my hair! I had never seen anything like this! I didn’t imagine that it could happen!

It took hours to pick the plastic out of my hair! Admittedly I look pretty bad now… No globs of plastic but I haven’t used a brush or comb for three days. Personal vanity fades away on the Camino. That’s part of it’s charm. No. I did not take a picture of me with the brush melted into my hair. This picture is from the beach this morning in between rainstorms.

 

Day 14 –  Leaving Spain

day14
It is disconcerting to get on a bus in Santiago to Porto, Portugal and travel for only four hours to cover the distance that it took us 11 days to walk. I’m stronger now in many ways. The backpack seems so light now as I toss it in the bus. I imagine it’ll be another few days before my feet stop aching.

Last night we took the subway into the center of Porto… of course to taste some port. 😀I’ve found the Portuguese people so helpful and friendly. Sunny spirits in a sunny land.  I’m at the airport now on my way to Warsaw to teach Soul Body Fusion and a Mark channeled workshop to my wonderful friends there.

Join me in person for my next spiritual adventure

I Was Afraid of Everything…..
As a young girl I was afraid of everything—especially at night. Planes going overhead sounded like bombs. You might ask how a young Colorado girl even knew what a bomb sounded like. Probably past-life memories— unexplainable traumas that we all carry.) I was afraid of burglars, window-peekers, fires, and especially of witches.

My journey walking from Porto Portugal to Santiago de Compostela, Spain

Jonette has just completed the Camino walking to Santiago de Compostela along the Portuguese coastal route from Porto, Portugal to Spain. Here is a blog of her first six days from her daily Facebook posts. Next week we will post a blog of her last six days walking.

“You get to feel the trail without the blisters😉!”

Day 0 of my journey on the Camino Portugues

day 0 JC,A,M

I flew from Stockholm today, meeting my Norwegian friends Anne and Mikael here. I’m excited because my clothes are clean, my feet have no blisters, and I have yet to test the weight of my new backpack. I tried my hardest to get my belongings pared down to the bare minimum– but we will see.😀

We start walking the beach path tomorrow. Thank you for joining this journey with us!

Day 1 of the Camino to Vila Do Condi

Day 1 Beach boardwalk

“It will be interesting to see who I really am at the end of 14 days walking”

Day 1 groupWalked along the sea all day. Beautiful warm weather and bright blue sky. For a moment we were uncertain where the path led. Just then a man pulled up in his car and asked us where we were going. He told us that we were about to follow the old road which
was well marked but longer and less beautiful. He gave us clear directions to continue to follow the sea… a way not marked for pilgrims. This man appeared at the perfect time, an angel to us. It was a fabulous route, keeping the Atlantic Ocean to our left as we walked along the sand dunes. Tonight is our first night in a pilgrim hostel.Day 1 JC & M in surf

I’ve learned a lot already today, trying to carry as little as I can in my backpack. Vanity is gone… No make up, only 3 shirts for 14 days… Kind of smelly… Very simple. It is easy to see how busy my mind wants to be. It will be interesting to see who I really am at the end of 14 days walking.

Day 2 of the Camino to Marinhus, Portugal

day2“The pace of one step at a time is very slow, especially compared to how I usually race through life.”

day 2 sea shell sign

Walked along the sea again today. Sometimes we pass local people who smile and say “bom caminho” — wishing us well or ‘good way’. Passed through fishing villages and small farm plots growing vegetables. The pack felt heavier today and the feet more sore. Tonight staying in a pilgrim’s hostel. 16 bunkbeds all in one room, men and women together. (looking for my earplugs now). Good thing we’re all very tired. 😀

Day 2 Beach markerWe met fascinating people from many countries here tonight. Most people have walked the Camino before and are doing it again. I can see how freeing it is to step out of our ordinary life and slow our pace. The pace of one step at a time is very slow, especially compared to how I usually race through life.

We follow the yellow arrows with the yellow shell sign from town to town.

 Day 3 of the Camino – last day in Portugal

day3

“It really is so great to just walk… No other expectations or jobs!!”

day 4 hostel

OK, I have to admit it was very difficult to share a room with bunk beds with so many people.  Some went to bed late and made noise. Some people got up very early and made noise. I confess that I was one of the people who snored, says my friend Anne.

Day 3 JC&A

I had a small meltdown when I found we had to walk seven more kilometers to find a pilgrim’s hostel… after we had walked over 8 hours. My wonderful friends agreed to carry my pack. But then I had a better idea, let’s get a taxi to a hotel… Which turned out to be much further than 7 km away. We had a great dinner and enjoyed a bottle of red wine and wonderful deep conversation.

Anne and I are sharing a bed tonight, but it’s much better than the bunk room with 14 other people. It really is so great to just walk… No other expectations or jobs!!

Day 4 of the Camino from Portugal to Spain

day4

“Yesterday while walking on my own I was so overwhelmed with joy”

A shorter walk today along the coast, then crossed by ferry from Portugal to Spain. Tonight the pilgrim’s hostel is an old school that has a small kitchen… For 5 euros a night!

Yesterday while walking on my own I was so overwhelmed with joy that I wanted to share it. So I am sending you all the love ❤

Day 5 of the Camino

day5

“Life is reduced to its simplest form”

day 5 pathToday was our first rain day as we walked along the west coast. Our bodies are all pretty tired, so it will be an early night at the pilgrim’s hostel. Rain is not worse than sun, just different. Food was a problem today as it is Sunday and remote. Breakfast was bread and cheese, lunch was the same bread with half a banana, dinner was the same bread we’ve been carrying with some canned sardines.

Day 5 group selfieLife is reduced to its simplest form. You get up grab some bread and start walking. At the end of the day you shower, wash out some clothes, and go to bed early to the bunk room.

It is an adventure! Meeting great people and am getting strong! The people are: Anne and Mikael– friends from Norway, and. Nico–a Belgian guy who has adopted us on the way.  Our front door tonight faces the Atlantic Ocean!

Day 6 of the Camino from Mougas to Baionaday6

“If you would ask me why I am walking the Camino, I don’t really have an answer.”

Day 6 picnic lunchWalking along the coast in Spain. Began in Mougas. Sleeping in an old convent outside Baiona.

The spiritual breakthroughs are not so grandiose as I had hoped for. It is more the insight of observing my thoughts and noticing that I don’t always like what I think. But as I walk, I re-choose everything in every moment. Thinking quietly. Life is simple here. We follow the yellow arrows that lead us to the pilgrim’s hostel. We eat when we can. Stop where there is a cafe chair or a rock. Lunch was sardines on the rocks. Food never tasted so good!Day 6 Water from Fountain

Tonight 7 of us from 7 countries had a great dinner together sharing the camaraderie of the road.

If you would ask me why I am walking the Camino, I don’t really have an answer.  Except to walk it.

We will be posting Part 2 of Jonette’s journey next week – Find out if she has a different answer to that question after completing her 14 day Camino walk.

A Message from ‘MARK’ channeled by Jonette Crowley at the Pyramid of the Sun in Visoko, Bosnia

sunWhat is born today is many suns
the brightness of your golden heart,
the golden brightness of your laugh,
and the dancing brightness of your eyes.

You are bidden, invited to come alive – alive in ways you have not tasted.
ALIVE! – ‘MARK’

The world is an egg cracking open. That which is emergent is unknown. It remains unknown until the moment of emergence, and at that moment it becomes created. Earth is there.  At the time of cracking open is a spectacular time of possibilities – a eggtime where light illuminates darkness and love has compassion for fear. Love your fears and love your darkness; and then allow your fears and your darkness to love you. There is nothing that cannot be accomplished when you bring your consciousness together with others of similar vibrations. There is so much support from the Universe when you first open the gates. These are grand times and awakening is bubbling up everywhere. That which is awakening cannot be put to sleep. You cannot be put to sleep. We are ready for your questions.  This is Mark.

QUESTION:  Can you please tell us a little bit more about the people, the beings who built the pyramids and why they disappeared? – Maggie

pyramid jetter-green‘MARK’:  The first pyramids that were built upon this Earth were built in the etheric plane. They were imagined by thought. They created a complex, geometric matrix that helped Earth become solid when it was in a more fluid, uninhabitable state. This thought projection of pyramidal and geometric structures was projected onto the Earth from beings from other star systems. That began to create a solidifying of the Earth’s crust and a crystallization of the minerals to match the geometric template that was thought projected upon the Earth. Those beings did not come in spaceships. They did not need to come here. They were Creator Beings from other stars, other worlds. Millions of years later, Earth began to become habitable by living organisms. The atmosphere was still poisonous to advanced plants and simple animals. There continued to be creative projections upon the Earth, not material yet; and there began to be more influence from other star systems, other kinds of Creator Beings. These are generally non-physical beings or who can sometimes be physical. They do not need to travel in spaceships either.

It was spontaneously decided that Earth would be a place of collective consciousness meaning that beings that were formless and beings that had physical form in other dimensions would come together in a unique experiment as this Earth was forming. With that decision, DNA or the building blocks of what would become your plant kingdom and your animal kingdom began to be brought here and physicality began to take more form.

Again, many millions of years (so many years Jonette cannot see the zeros), there was active husbandry of what was growing upon the Earth. It was a safe zone. There was no conflict, no war, only collaboration here. No one had an idea of what could be created but it was created as a community for many star systems. The atmosphere of the Earth advanced so that animals could be born here—a long stage of reptiles. Evolution as you understand it continued but it was always assisted by—well, what you would call horticulture but we would guess we will call it human culture—from benevolent beings. This was a world only of benevolence.

heaven&earth

It was decided that there would be a time where there would be less manipulation, less feeding into this world from other star systems; and this planet was left to grow on its own for a long time—the time doesn’t matter. The growth progressed slowly in terms of human consciousness. You were animal beings with animal consciousness. It was then decided to bring higher consciousness into the animal beings that were here. This is when once again there were invitations to many star beings to come to the Earth to support the rise in consciousness of the animals that were here—the animals that would become humans. As that progressed, there were different parts of the world that evolved or were assisted in different ways so you had nearly different species of beings moving toward what you call humanity. There was a point at which one species became quite technologically advanced. They decided to strengthen the field that was Earth by making physical that projected matrix and pyramidal structure that had been on the Earth from the very beginning. So the humans who were advanced technologically and highly connected to the stars began to make physical what you see as pyramid structures. Their purpose was direct communication with the star systems, was balancing the Earth, was creating stability in an unstable Earth, and was creating an energy field that supported human spiritual evolution.

So the question who built it was humans with much interconnection with star beings, and to name the star beings is not important. They were never from just Orion or some particular place. They gave the humans their DNA. There was beautiful peace upon the land. There began to be interference from star beings who saw opportunity in the energy and the creative possibility that was happening on Earth. There was a great war between the star beings and the Earth beings who had created the pyramids and the whole matrix structure that you’re only now beginning to understand and more. The war devastated Earth in many ways, and humanity—the light beings—the ones who had the technology and the high consciousness went underground.light beings

When humanity emerged again, it had to begin again in many ways, and in the stories the destruction was recalled—this was not Atlantis—this was something much bigger and much earlier. The destruction was recalled and the beings who had created the pyramid matrix who were connecting to the star systems and had beautiful interconnection and benevolence began to realize they needed to take their technology so it could not be enticing to those off planet who wanted what Earth had. Many of the pyramids and the matrices were taken off line. Many of the communication—we’ll call them temples that were not pyramids were buried or disconnected from the interstellar grid. However, there are always some that stayed connected to the stars and to the benevolence that was always intended here.

As you humans awake, you are claiming the consciousness of the beings who built and understood these pyramids and their interconnection with the Universe. And so, you say why did the builders of the pyramids disappear? They became you. There will be more temples found that have been off line. This pyramid has remained on line. There’s also one in China that has remained on line, and another I cannot see where it is—it’s South America or Africa, and a few others that have remained on line to be reconnected, lifted, and then reconnected with the ones that are waiting to be brought on line too. Then the entire matrix—as this beautiful crystalline matrix begins to sing—sing a new potentiality, sing a new vibration; and the forms that you see that do not support unity, that do not support the benevolence that you know in your heart will fall away and be supported by this singing, high structure that is beyond crystalline. It’s no longer matter anymore. It’s a geometric field of harmony. So the pyramids are important—that you’re coming here with the highest intention and with as high a frequency as humans can hold. It is very important.

There is nothing dark enough that benevolence, holiness and light cannot harmonize. Because the Earth was born from support from many star systems, the support is there. – ‘MARK’
