THE STORY:  LionsGate:
Awakening the Dragon.  Part 2

LionsGateAwakening Vital Relationship 
with the Elemental Consciousness 
of Life Force Around Us.

 (#4 in an ongoing series of articles on the Elemental Nature of Consciousness.)

“I picked up my bear drum and started a slight invocation of goodness.   Almost immediately, there appeared in my living room, through the subtle fields of perception, three great wise elders, crouching over a fire in front of them, bent over, long gray hair cascading down their shoulders, dark blankets enveloping their bodies, large, wide brimmed hats on their heads.  A small river separated us.  They beckoned me over, and I came.“

http://thecenteroflight.net/ctrimages/TN.Mtn.Bald.Echo.1.15.P1260112.jpgI was standing on a balcony of Lyndon State College during a break in presentations.  There it was again.  This immense, pyramidal mountain, off, in the distance, pulsing its life force.  I heard it, calling me.   “Come, come,” like a rhythmical pulse of life, the voice of the mountain, asking me to come closer to it, to come into relationship with it; to approach it, to speak with it.  It had something to offer.   The mountains had become my great allies in my life and work.  Along with the many beings of the subtle realms whom have come to me, spoken (or sung,) to me, or through me, awakened me, and taught me, since I was barely a man.  Their language is not always in English, to say the least….  The mountains of this region had been talking to me since I was first here, some 40 years ago.  Mt. Ascutney was one of the first.  This was one of the latest in the evolution of awakenings to the conscious, sentient voices of the “Apus,” the spirits of the mountains, calling me to relationship, and to do work. 
 
Indeed, I knew it, I had work to do.
 
I knew it, but ignored it, once again.
Time.  I did not have the time, I argued.  I was in the midst of professional presentations at the college, within sight of the mountain in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.  Time is the essence, but, also the culprit.  There is not enough time, I argued with myself.  It must be another day, another journey.  Something dedicated just to the mountain.  But, rarely am I in northern Vermont.  And, it is a long journey to even get here….. 
(As it turns out, that day would come.  And bring some of the most incredible experiences I could possibly imagine, if not more than that, to me, and to others working with me in relationship with this mountain, and other “Apus” of the region, not just mountain spirits….)
 
As the mountain moves out of sight, my memory of its calling, fades, equally.
 
That is not always the case.  There are those times the mountains, and many others in the subtle worlds, come to me in the moment I am there, in their presence, to speak and guide me.  I have learned, through years of experience, some pure trial and error, how to approach and awaken ‘relationship’ with the spirit beings of a location, whether it is a pristine valley or gorge in Vermont, a great stone, maple, oak, or pine, or the Great Pyramids Giza, the temples of Stonehenge or of Machu Picchu, or other locations.

Part 3 next week.

This is one of a series of articles which are intended to be educational in nature, as well as provide simple sharings of my life experience.  Of growing importance, of that, to share, is how we can enter valued and nurturing relationships with the elements of the Earth and Sky in our own 'back yard.'
However, these articles, also, will tell the story of the unfolding of the "Awakening of the Dragon," what this means, how and what has been revealed, and in what way it is guiding us today.  We shall also, time permitting, go intoCity of Light explanations of the "LionsGate," a rich star vortex near the peak of Mt Washington, as well as explanation of some of the other 'wonders' of New England which have revealed themselves to us, including, perhaps, most powerful of all, the "City of Light" residing in the subtle realms, accessed through powerful natural portals of this region, and the "Crystal Cathedral", one of the many stone chambers of Vermont, and the mysteries infused therein.

[On Aug 16-23 we will perform ceremonies which comprise the “LIONSGATE:  Awakening the Dragon” program in Northern New England.  These practices are the culmination of my life’s work with the Living Energies of the Earth, and Cosmos, to this time.  They bring together a remarkable union of indigenous teachings of North and South America, as well as collaborations with many others I have worked with, yet, have evolved into far more.  The participants learn explicit practices for self-empowerment, but, equally, are called upon to engage with the Living Energies of the Earth and Sky in pristine energy and awareness exercises, to awaken and harmonize these precious energies and our relationship with them, which are replenishing to ourselves, and, the Earth.   (And more--read on!)]
