Crystal Layouts …Power Up…

     I’d like to discuss some of the variations that can be employed to do Crystal Layouts.  The first one, and the one I wish to discuss in this article, is, colloquially speaking, the ‘Power Up’ Layout.  Have you worked with crystals before?  If not, this is not the layout to start with.  Power Up layouts are for the old salt, who has lots of crystals and uses them on a regular basis.  If you are a crystalholic, read on!
     In this layout, you use lots of crystals to bring lots of light.  I suggest at least 10 six-sided Clear Quartz Points evenly spaced on each side of the body, along with a sizable Quartz Generator at both the head and the feet.  Usually when you place Clear Quartz Points around your body, they will be pointing inward.  This means the light the crystals bring is directed into your body.   Another suggestion is to place more Clear Quartz Points along your midline at each of the chakras, or even on and between the chakras.  Wow, lots of crystals and lots of light!!

     Normally, crystals placed on the upper chakras are optimal when pointed downward, and on the lower chakras pointed upward, both in the direction of the heart.  In the power up configuration, there is no concern about up or down flow along the midline.  Rather, the objective is simply exposure. 
Besides creating a flow inward, Clear Quartz Points can be used to create vortexes.  A vortex will be either clockwise or counter-clockwise.  Which way is which can be confusing, especially if you turn around.  So, to get the direction clear, for a clockwise vortex, place your hand on your heart and rotate it outward in a clockwise direction.  Do the opposite for a counter clockwise vortex.  That is, with your hand away from your body, bring it to your heart in a counter clockwise direction.  Can you guess which way the light is travelling within the vortex?  Light in a clockwise vortex goes outward from you to the universe.  You are giving light to the world outside your body.  Light in a counter-clockwise vortex is inbound so you receive light.
     To translate these vortexes into a Crystal Layout, the clockwise vortex will have the crystals around you pointing down on the right side of your body and up on the left.  The way the crystal is pointed gives directional flow to the light passing through the crystal.  Each crystal will point in the direction of the next crystal to create a circle of light flow, which results in a vortex.  The counter-clockwise vortex will be the opposite—with the crystals pointing up on the right and down on the left. 
     While you are still working hard to achieve progress on the spiritual path, i.e., en route to enlightenment, your best interest is served by bringing light to your body.  Using the clockwise layout, to send light out, needs to be reserved for the advanced practitioner, who is well past the novice stage.  Sending light out to the universe is greatly appreciated by the Angelic ones, but it leaves the practitioner in a vacuum with no light.  If you are sending light out, you will need to bring light in, because the body will need to be replenished.  Until you really know what you are doing, and until your vibration is quite high, the counter-clockwise vortex is what you need to do, if you do a vortex layout.  It brings light to you.

     Leaving vortexes alone for a moment, I wish to expand on my cautionary note about the power-up layout.  Because such a layout includes a couple of generators, 20 or 30 crystals pointing inward, and several more along on the midline, the flow of light, to which your body is exposed, will be significant.  This many crystals make for a strong layout.  The person receiving too much light may experience shock to the body’s light receptors, which results in vibrational warps, uneven body density, imbalances in light reception, receptor burn-out, and over empowerment in different parts of the body.  The person’s vibration cannot handle the sudden, massive, influx of light frequencies.  In the Hindu traditions, the ‘kriyas’ are a symptom of over-exposure.  You would not want to try this with a person who is just starting to work with crystals, including yourself.  This much light is something you work up to over a period of time and after many layouts. 
     The whole purpose of the spiritual path is to acquire divine light frequencies on the road to enlightenment.  The benefit of the power-up layout is exposure to a significant amount of light.  If your body can work with this much light, the spiritual path accelerates.  The days of crawling along in the dark are gone!  Wake up and let your spirituality run with the light—Power Up! 
The more crystals you add, the more powerful the layout becomes.  The bigger your generators, the stronger the layout.  This, then, is what I mean by the ‘power up layout’.

In the Beginning... Hematite

Sometimes listening to the radio can be amazing, even inspiring. In an interview with a writer, who began his writing career at the tender age of 16, the message from his mentor was that, if he wanted to be a writer, he had to write something every day. I, too, write. But, even with 3 books to my credit, I hesitate to call myself a writer, and for good reason. I am a channel for the foundation of knowledge that came to be two profound books on how divine light works and another on how crystals work and work with divine light. I am not an everyday writer, but I do like the practice of writing.
So, my blog continues.
The thought for today is linked to the work I am doing on my online crystal course, which is taking a very long time to complete. My job keeps me away from home a lot, and lately, I went through a major surgery that gave me a month of pain and a lot of physio to go through to recover.  Progress has been slow.
A couple of days ago, I was working on the presentation for the crystal Hematite.
Many people know Hematite as Alaska diamond. It is black and shiny and can be worked to a smooth finish in just about any shape the stone cutter might wish. Hematite is the stone for the person who is endeavouring to start the spiritual path. It is the stone for bringing the first light frequencies on the road to enlightenment. It is the stone for bringing the first frequencies to whatever material form or mass that has no light. In the beginning, there was Hematite.
Hematite is the stone with which to begin bringing light into form because it works with the black light frequency range. Yes, friends, there is black light frequencies. These are the lowest and slowest frequencies on Earth. Black light will always be the very first frequency to find its way into material form or mass for that very reason. A mass without light is also the lowest and slowest vibration. To be compatible, the first light to come to the mass also needs to be the lowest and slowest vibration.
The discussion that goes with empowering form with light will have to wait for another day, but to begin the empowerment, Hematite provides the first frequencies, which of necessity are black light frequencies.
In the beginning, use Hematite.

2016 Solstice: Empowering the Earth’s Light Energy Grid

    The Solstice that marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere also marks the empowerment of the Earth’s energy grids, also in the northern hemisphere.  The 2016 Solstice was especially empowering because of the occurrence of the full Moon at the same time.

    The time of the full Moon was 1302h UTC, and the time of the Solstice was 2234h UTC.  The fact that the zenith of the Moon was slightly ahead of the zenith of the Sun just adds to the significance, as I will explain later.

    Understanding how the Solstice plays a role in Earth’s empowerment is a bit like a puzzle.  There are a few pieces that need to be explained for the event to make sense.  First up, the Sun is the inter-dimensional portal through which the vast majority of the divine light coming from the higher realms finds its way into our Solar System.  (reference: The Story of Light, Through Heaven’s Gate, Volume 2, Chapter 9.1 “Portals of Light: The Sun”)  The Sun looks like a ball of fire because higher dimensional light collects at the opening as it pours through.

    Second up, because we are in a physical world, physical properties apply.  The role of the full Moon is to create a physical gravitational magnetic pull.  Every planet offers some amount of magnetic pull, which gives effect to the astrological aspects of conjuncts, trines, squares, and so on.  When the Moon aligns directly opposite the Sun (conjunction or full Moon), its effect to increase the magnetic pull of divine light coming through the Sun is greater than at any other time.  (For general interest on this same topic, you may wish to see the role of Mercury, also in Volume 2, Chapter 10.1: “Mercury-Sun-Arcemedus Alignment”.)  The Moon ensures that more light comes.  The timing of being slightly ahead of the Solstice makes the process especially optimal.

    Third, the energy grids on Earth are a network of energy light stations (also see Volume 2, chapter 12, “Light Stations”) and energy corridors, through which the divine light to which Earth is exposed, travel.  Earth’s grids can be compared to the human body’s chakra and chakra distribution systems.  Energy for empowerment is distributed through both these systems. 

    Fourth, the northern hemisphere, more so than the southern, receives more of the Sun’s incoming light because of the angle of the Earth’s tilt.  As a consequence, the northern hemisphere has a more evolved and developed energy grid network.  It is better able to capture and assimilate the divine light to which the Earth is exposed.

    Fifth, again, because we are on a physical world, physical time dictates.  The greatest amount of light comes immediately at the time of the zenith of the Solstice.  The greatest benefit, however, occurs in the week or so following the Solstice.  Time is needed for the light coming from the Sun to find its way into the light stations and energy corridors.  Time is also needed for the light to charge and empower the physical mass of the Earth.

    What light will the 2016 Solstice bring?  Absolutely, the light coming to Earth is strictly consistent with the Earth’s current vibration.  There are light frequencies that are higher and frequencies that are lower, but the range of divine light frequencies that are attracted are limited to exactly what the planet’s vibration allows.

    In conclusion, this year’s northern Summer Solstice stands among the more memorable events involving the Earth’s light acquisition.  The full Moon alignment adds significantly to the pull of divine light to our planet at the moment of its greatest flow.

Crystals for the Schizophrenic

I was recently asked if there were a crystal that would be helpful for a person with Schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia was a topic of interest for me several years ago.  I did not find it to be complex, but there is a significant amount of background knowledge to draw upon before the answer becomes clear.  See references at the end of this article.

Young, or more accurately, baby souls come to Earth as part of their initial dive into consciousness.  Being neonates in the soul department, the soul of the schizophrenic has very little experience on Earth and is, therefore, not adept at living here or anywhere else in the universe.  The soul has very little connection with its incarnation and, therefore, is in a deficit position in sending light to its incarnation.  Such light, divine energy, or spirit is very essential and necessary and must be strong enough to maintain the vibration of the person in a healthy way.  The soul of the schizophrenic needs to build up the light within its incarnation to acquire a viable “person’s” vibration that can withstand the assaults from any of the negative energies that may be present in the local environment (including immediately local higher dimensional environment).  

Without a “viable” vibration, the schizophrenic person is subject to the invasion of mischievous lower fourth (or so) dimensional entities.  Delusions of grandeur are the primary symptoms.  These delinquent entities pose as known beings... Jesus, King Henry VIII, or whoever... by taking over the body and acting out.  This invasion is possible because the Etheric Magnetic Field is weak and most often has warps, holes, or black and dense areas that are vulnerable to the invasion of a foreign spirit.  So, with a weak etheric field, the body is occupied by two very different spirits.  The invading entity usually has the stronger will and, more or less, takes over for a time until it gets bored or has somewhere else to go.  Don’t get the idea that these entities are strong, they are not.  They are predatory, but only to extremely weak individuals, who are weaker than themselves.

The solution...
1.  is to strengthen the etheric magnetic field, which emanates from the physical body.  Simply add light.  Clear quartz and grounding stones such as Hematite, Obsidian, and Onyx 
((((Careful!!!  Real Onyx is almost impossible to get as it is almost always agate that has been treated.  “Natural black onyx is extremely rare, so the commercial black variety is nearly always agate that has been stained by the sugar-sulphuric acid treatment, soaked in a sugar solution and then heated in sulphuric acid to carbonize the sugar.”
From: Firefly Guide to Gems, by Cally Oldershaw ))))
are helpful.  Quartz to bring the light, and black grounding to hold it.  No need to use any of the more specialized crystals.  Bringing light is the objective.

2. The most effective treatment I know of would be my copper energy bed.  Go here ( to see the write up on crystal layouts including the section on the copper energy bed.  The copper bed, which is a sheet of roofing copper 7x3’ and is also discussed in The Story of Light, Path to Enlightenment, Chapter 2, “The Etheric Body”, is a natural energy conductor.  It accelerates the etheric magnetic field and, by doing so, shifts the warps, holes, damaged spots, and dense areas of the afflicted person’s etheric field.  It bring the etherics into their natural state of flow.  With a natural flow, free of warps and holes, the etherics can properly attract and repel vibrations, as it is supposed to do, according to the appropriate state of the person’s vibration.  It thereby removes the vulnerability of the person to the invasion of nasty spirits.

3. Another solution is to use the principles of our Earthly, free-will zone.  Mischievous lower fourth dimensional entities and all other other-worldly beings are required to respect our free will on Earth.  Simply tell those invading spirits to get lost.  If they come back, tell them again.  The schizophrenic person needs to exercise his/her free will and tell the invaders to go away.  You cannot do it for them.  He said: “Be Gone, foul entities!!”.  The protection ritual should have the same effect.  It goes as follows:
“I call upon the great white light to come down within to surround and protect me.  Beings of light, who are working for my best and highest interest are invited to be here now and to work with me.  All other entities must now leave and are commanded to do so. So be it.”

Keep in mind that schizophrenic persons are the incarnations of really new souls that have next to no experience on any realm of consciousness let alone on a world with the challenges of the third dimension on Earth.  The light from the crystals will help, a copper energy bed will help, and the expression of free will should be effective, but the person’s soul has a long way to go on its journey into consciousness.  The soul needs to learn how to connect with its incarnation and how to send light and in the proper quantity and quality.  Such learning at the soul level takes a number of incarnate experiences to accomplish.  Perhaps, bring your expectations of the healing outcome for the schizophrenic person into line with the nature of the condition.

Getting past the myths about how our spiritual bodies and the crystals work requires effort and discernment.  No pill, no pablum, just work and an open mind to the truth.

Choosing Your First Crystal

A good friend recently asked: “What crystal should I get if I am just starting out on my spiritual path?”

Well…..   I have to ask a question in return!

Do you know love?  What do you know about love?  Is love a big or little part of your life?
Ok, so that was several questions and I will need to explain why love is so important.

The spiritual path starts with love.  To get on the spiritual path, a person needs to make a series of choices that show he or she knows love.  There is a lead up to the moment of spiritual opening.  Love is the lead.  Love is the fire-wall that ensures that only persons with love can rise to spiritual attainment.  Because spiritual life involves a much greater connection with the higher self, the soul, love is a prerequisite.  Would connecting with the soul be possible for someone that does not choose love?  The short answer is: no!  Would you want persons, who would not be willing to choose love, to be wielding the energies of the soul?  Love, then, is the key to finding your way onto the spiritual path.
The best crystal for empowering a person with love is Rose Quartz.  Rose Quartz is the self-love stone.  It is not intended for projecting love out into the world.  It is not for placing a force field of love around your body.  It is not directly a healing crystal.  It works to strengthen the love you have within.  It combines the love that you have within with the love of divine origin.  The resulting combined love is a new and higher vibration of love that then becomes available to you.  Being a higher vibration, it raises your vibration and raises the love vibration you have.  Rose Quartz is the stone to boost your love and solidify your place on the spiritual journey.
There are many other stones that would be beneficial for the newly minted devotee.  Primary among these would be clear quartz points and smoky quartz.  Clear quartz brings in the full spectrum of light frequencies.  The spiritual path is there to bring you to enlightenment.  To be enlightened, you need light frequencies. The smoky quartz works to open the base chakra for the release of the soul-seed light, which marks the official beginning of the spiritual path.  It is the initiate’s stone for raising the kundalini.  The base chakra, soul-seed, and smoky quartz are covered in detail in my books.
So, the answer to the question is Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz points, and Smoky Quartz.

Psychic Predictions

When a psychic or anyone else attempts to discern the future through prediction, that person is projecting his or her intuition outward from the now-moment.  Earth is limited to here and now.  So, predictions can only be made in the here and now.  One cannot step outside of the now moment, transcend into the “then” moment, and return with a scoop on future events.  As vibrations in one now-moment will always be different from the next or past now-moments, projections into the future will have entirely different vibrations as well.
Predictions are not false.  They are correct for the moment that they were made.  Because they project into a time and space that will have changed by the time the moment of the prediction arrives, the possibilities predicted will have changed as well.  Even a single choice made by a key player in the outcome of events that does not align with the prediction will send the prediction in an entirely different direction.  In the past, the enlightened growth of the Earth was quite slow.  Therefore, changes were minimal.  In a world that changes very little, predictions can be accurate because the now-moment and the predicted-moment are very similar.  In our current time period, enlightened growth is very rapid.  Changes are constant and significant.  The now-moment and the predicted-moment are not at all alike.
While Nostradamus was able to predict the future accurately in the 16th century, because the world was almost unchanging, the psychic in 2015 has very little chance.  Our 21st century world and our choices are constantly in flux making predictions highly inaccurate.

The Negative Entity

I recently received a query about unlit souls—persons with no light.  The question arose from the section entitled “The Negative Entity”, which can be found in my second volume, The Story of Light, Through Heaven’s Gate, in Chapter 2, “Into the Void”.  The query came from a person who was concerned that her sister’s husband fit the description of “the negative entity”.  From the information given and the background of the person involved, I was happy to offer that the likelihood of the husband being a negative entity was infinitesimally small.  So, then, what is a negative entity?
As with all of what I write, the depth is quite significant.  Careful reading is required; and multiple readings are suggested.  The passage about the unlighted entity comes just ahead of the chapter (Chapter 3) on disconnected souls, entitled: “Lost Souls”.  Upon a single reading of The Story of Light, Through Heaven’s Gate, I can appreciate that the reader might merge the information of the two sections, “Lost Souls” and “The Negative Entity”, to come out with a skewed perception that does not differentiate between the two.
“The Negative Entity”, refers to exactly that: the negative entity.  The negative entity is not a soul.  Husbands, and any other persons for that matter, can be negative entities, but are not likely to be so.  The chances are, again, infinitesimally small.  Incarnate persons, husbands included, are the extensions of souls, but not souls of themselves.  The “negative entity”, on the other hand, occupies a physical body and has consciousness, but is void of a soul.  It is not connected to a soul either.  It is an entity defined by the absence of a soul.
So, how does that happen?  Read on!
On its own, the negative entity is also void of light.  However, the negative entity, as does any normal person, needs divine light and energy to survive.  But, in stark contrast to a normal person, the light it does possess is not its own.  The negative entity attracts light through its negative polarity from other sources of light, which are usually other people.  It has some light, just not from any soul presence.  The amount and quality of the light it does possess is limited to what it can leech from whatever source is available.
Let’s take the explanation further by shifting into some background knowledge.
From Chapter 13, “Basic Involvement of the Soul”, in volume 2, The Story of Light, Through Heaven’s Gate, firstly, persons are the extensions of their souls, and second, souls are the manifest creations of higher souls and, inevitably the Godhead.  Taking both points at once, the Godhead creates souls, which create lesser souls, which create even lesser souls, which create incarnations—you and me.  The hierarchy of souls is outlined in chapter 13 and can be found in other literary sources, perhaps with minor variations.  A primary observation from this section is that there is a lineage of souls originating at the Godhead.  As such, the incarnate person is connected to his or her soul.  Souls are connected at each level to souls at the next higher level.  The highest souls are connected to the Godhead at the centre of creation.  There is no break in the line of connection leading to the Godhead.
The next piece in the puzzle comes from Chapter 3 in volume 2, entitled: “Lost Souls”.  Lucifer is among the “lost souls”.  If you wish to look at his story, this section provides a very different understanding of his plight and eternal journey back to the light than you might find anywhere else.  To very briefly summarize this section, the most devoted beings within the Godhead’s angelic kingdom participated in a failed experiment at the very beginning of the sojourn into third dimensional consciousness.  The hope, which turned out to be hopeless, involved severing the connection to the Godhead in an effort to take divine light deeper into third dimensional physicality.  Not having a connection to the Godhead turned out to be a major folly among the enlightened beings of Godhead’s angelic legions.  Indeed, these souls lost their way!  The point is that the disconnection between the Godhead and souls and lesser souls is a distinct possibility.  So, what does disconnection mean at the incarnate level?
Let’s start with the moment a soul connects to a person’s body, and then look at the disconnection.  From my first volume, The Story of Light, Path to Enlightenment, towards the end of Chapter 2, “The Etheric Body”, in the section entitled, “Miracle of Birth”, the soul enters the human body immediately following the exit of the foetal body from the womb.  Birth makes the separation of the foetus from the mother a reality.  One could say the soul comes upon the first breath.  Thereafter, the foetus becomes a complete person.  The need for separation is explained in this section, if you wish to look it up, and is crucial to the moment of entry of the soul.
 No matter what those with a ‘quasi-enlightened’ perception might have us believe, not all on Earth is exactly as it is supposed to be.  Not all is perfect—perfectly imperfect perhaps, but certainly not perfectly perfect!  Much imperfection abounds.  Birth, for example, produces numerous anomalies such as cleft pallets, congenital heart defects, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and more.  Birth can also be a problem for the soul.  The soul experiences problems similar to the problems encountered when light frequencies come to the Earth.   Light frequencies that cross the threshold from higher dimensions to the third dimensional physical plane are coming from a place of very high and subtle vibration and are entering a significantly lower and denser vibration.  They often become damaged, warped, or distorted in any manner of ways.  (Please see The Story of Light, Path to Enlightenment, sections 1.8 and 1.9 of Chapter 1, especially the list of problems encountered by the yin/yang aspects of light frequencies in their attempts to reunite.)  Similarly, the vibration of the soul is high and subtle and the vibration of the foetal body is physical and, therefore, low and dense.  The contrast is intense.
 Unfortunately, when the soul enters the foetal body, upon separation from the mother’s body at the moment of birth, it sometimes misses.  The vibrational differences are, at times, too great to make the entry possible.  The foetal body is born, but the soul fails to merge into it.  The result is the negative entity.  The “person” is physically complete, but has no soul presence.  Very few of such births last beyond a few days, but some make it into adult life.
Negative entities survive on the energy of lighted persons with whom they share proximity.  The entity’s parents would count among the first of these persons following birth.  Other persons contribute energy to the negative entity along the way.  The physical negative soul-less person survives because it exits the womb already adapted to and part of the physical world.  In each case, as explained in “The Negative Entity”, the negative entity takes on the demeanour of the person from whom the energy is acquired.  He or she reflects or mirrors the lighted soul-connected person’s energy to project a false personality.  Essentially, the negative entity is operating on the donor’s energy and light, and therefore, presents to the world in patterns empowered by the characteristics of that energy and light.  The negative entity might appear to be honest, for example, because it is functioning with the honest vibrations of the donor’s energy and light.
The negative entity functions like any other person, but without a soul.  Normally, the soul provides the energy and light required for development into personhood, but with the negative entity, that energy comes from other persons.  ‘Psychic vampire’ may be a term that would apply.  The life of the negative entity is entirely dependent on light from other persons and is, therefore, a very precarious existence.  Hence, life-span is usually very short, and the numbers of negative entities is quite small.
For a normal soul-connected person, and especially one with a spiritual life where conscious awareness of spirituality is in play, the chance of coming into contact with a negative entity is almost zero.  Vibration harmonizes with vibration of like characteristics.  For a spiritual person, being in the presence of a negative entity is highly unlikely.  Further, having a meaningful relationship with a negative entity cannot happen in the first place, and being married to one is almost impossible.  The two vibrations just would not fit.
If a soul-connected person thinks that a negative entity is in his or her life, the more likely scenario is that the stages of evolutionary spiritual development are noticeably different.  One person is well connected to his or her soul, guides, and angels and is an old or even an ascended soul, while the other person is poorly connected and a young or even baby soul.  If that were the case, the person of the young soul would be leeching the energy and light of the person of the old soul in a manner similar to the negative entity. The problem, however, would not be anywhere as severe.  Perhaps the old soul is the young soul’s mentor for this lifetime, as the young soul progresses through its maturity on Earth.  The old soul may also be serving as a channel for the light as the young soul learns how to bring its light to its incarnation.  The hidden answer lies in love.  Let your heart be your guide.
Even in the most severe case, negative entities are not strong.  They depend on the energy they get from others, and therefore, can only be as strong as that person’s energy allows.   However, if the soul-connected person allows fear, deceit, judgment, or any other negative vibration to complicate his or her own vibration, the presence of negativity gives the negative entity a welcome mat to steal away energy and light.  Fear not, all will then be well.
