Catching Those Subtle Thoughts

For some reason it always surprises me when I become aware of a thought I’ve been thinking that had been flying just under the radar of my consciousness.  Something I’ve let run through my brain unconsciously for so many years I just stopped seeing it.  They seem to show up when I’m intent on moving beyond them – the feel of the new thought or vibe I’m reaching for suddenly highlights the old unconscious thought in a sharp contrast. I probably wouldn’t even notice those old thoughts if I wasn’t pushing myself to change. And if I wasn’t now able to catch the icky or negative/limiting vibe that these old thoughts were still broadcasting. New vibe? Feels good, open, promising. Old vibe? Feels restrictive, annoying, like a shirt made for someone else.

What sometimes helps me dig these old thoughts up more completely is pretending that I’m already experiencing the situation that I’m reaching for, or just about to. If I find it hard to inhabit that new vibe fully, I start asking myself why. How do I feel in this new situation when I picture myself with my family? When I’m working? When I’m at the store? What do I feel other people are thinking about me in this new situation? (This is, of course, never about what other people would really be thinking, but what I’m PROJECTING onto them.)

After I finally SEE the old thought/belief, it feels like it’s all suddenly just layed out on the table in front of me and I can sweep the old ones into the trash can – what a relief! And… onward into the new vibe with no anchors, weights, or hooks holding me down.

Anyway, it always sounds weird to me when I try to write down these internal processes – like describing to someone how you choose which kind of soup you want in a restaurant – fascinating reading – LOL!!

Some Cool Quotes

Ran across a few quotes that I thought I’d share:

“We’re all right. How are we going to deal with all that complexity?” – Margaret Wheatley

“The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off.” – Gloria Steinem

“The question is not ‘can you make a difference?’ You already do make a difference. It’s just a matter of what kind of difference you want to make, during your life on this planet. ” – Julia Butterfly Hill

Lunar Eclipse Photos (August 2007)

John and I woke ourselves up at 2 a.m. and dragged ourselves outside to watch the lunar eclipse last night. It was very cool – it really did turn a reddish hue and I can see why it seems like the moon turns a blood red! I took a few photos during different phases of the eclipse and with different camera settings – you can see the four best ones below:

Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull

If you’ve been around a few metaphysical websites or books or people, you’ve probably heard about the mystery of crystal skulls. Some of the more amazing and priceless skulls, in particular, the Mitchell-Hedges crystal skull, has been out of the public eye for the last ten years, but since the last caretaker has died, the new caretaker is bringing it out again! (Skull image used with permission – © A Frank Dorland Photograph, Copyright owner Vandria Rayner-Dorland, P.O. Box 6233, Los Osos, CA 93412-6233, E-mail: [email protected])

I want to add a few notes about the mysteries of the skull, which has intrigued me since the first time I heard about it. (I think author Mellon Thomas-Benedict was talking about his experience with the skull, putting his third eye to the skull’s third eye and having an amazing psychical/energy experience, although for the life of me I can’t remember the specific details!) Anyway here are some cool factoids from the information we received: It was discovered on January 1, 1924 in the ruins of a Mayan City in Belize, called Lubaantun, city of the fallen stones. Scientists examined the skull in the laboratories of Hewlett Packard and discovered that the skull was made from one piece of crystal (quality clear quartz), but with several lenses built in it that allows light to flow through the skull in special ways. It’s an anatomically correct model of a human skull, a female of the Mongoloid race. To this day they’re still not sure how it was made!

So, if you’ve been waiting for a chance to see the skull, and can create the cash for admission, the Event is October 4-7, 2007, in Sedona, Arizona. Click here for more information about seeing the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull.

Stargazing during Perseid Meteor Shower 2007

I actually caught a photo of a shooting star during the Perseid Meteor Shower last night! I had the loose intention of catching one, but I had no idea how I was really going to do it. Since I was just taking 30 second exposures of the general patch of sky where the meteors were showing whenever I had the impulse, it was definitely more of a magical creation than anything I did deliberately. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even see this streak when it happened – I didn’t know I’d captured it until I’d downloaded the images to my computer and started looking through them! Intention works! 🙂
