Building the Crystal City

I HEARD A PERSON DESCRIBING his current life circumstance one day... a harrowing situation, not at all pleasant... and he followed his sharing with the statement: "I tell ya, it's enough to make a person lose his religion!" To this, I heard someone else reply: "Or, perhaps, it's enough to make a person USE his religion." I guess there are all sorts of ways to go through personal hardship. The "heat" from life's alchemical kitchen is what brings elements to the surface, whether it be dross or luminous beauty.

I had a fascinating interchange in e-mail one day with a woman who is being used mightily by Spirit for the furtherance of planetary ascension. We both sat in amazement as we considered the events that had transpired on one particular night in her life. Then, in the next moment, we were pondering how her husband had just lost his job, leaving their family without any health insurance whatsoever. She asked the Guides: "If Spirit working through me is so powerfully, why do I have to endure such feelings of lack right now?"

The short answer to her question, from the Reconnections viewpoint was:

Outward shocks and traumas will come. After all, your planet is birthing itself anew. Your 3D ego self is your investment in that process. You might say that the lacks and fears you feel are what qualify you to log-on to the human race as a participant. How you deal with the situation will not be a matter of ego. Your inner wisdom will fragment into however many component "parts" it requires to adapt to this situation. The ego's overall job is simply to watch and feel and record the events transpiring. All components of any perceived occurrence are YOU, fragments of you. And it takes the ego "you" to realize this... to serve as a Watcher for what is going on... as well as an instrument to participate when needed. Do not try and force anything to happen, and do not prevent anything from happening if it really pushes itself through. Simply FLOW with the energy. The balance point for that is nicely manifest in what you know as The Serenity Prayer.

My friend presented a few more queries about how to navigate her life during these rough waters, and the Guides responded:

You CAN and DO manifest the resources you need. All is yours for the taking... but that is not administrated at the ego level. Another, more expanded version of you is handling that. And whatever appearance of "lack" that occurs in one of your alternative universes exists for the purpose of grounding you (keeping you focused here)... so that your conscious data storage can continue to include the mundane as well as all other levels of reality that are also in motion. You are functioning at many levels! The more GROUNDED you become here, the more you can perceive those other levels. Your current "crisis" is - first and foremost - a means of pulling your expanding consciousness BACK HERE, to "check in" to your need for food and shelter, etc. You were getting a little too "out there," and this has generated conditions from the "Ground Crew" to make sure you don't wander too far away. The three areas where such grounding occur are: finances, relationships, and physical health. You are not alone in this crisis time. Most everyone has one or more of these areas inflamed right now. Just continue to follow the Three Commitments. Above all, let yourself become as SENSORIAL as possible... feeling and enjoying being human and being physical whenever you can, despite your physical circumstances. Your Expanded Self will steer you through the mind fields of this current planetary shift. One day at a time, one step at a time. Your Multi-D self will continue to expand. Nothing will inhibit that... but now your physical self will stay present as well, through pain if necessary, and all will transpire as you ultimately desire. Just believe!. You didn't bring yourself this far just to abandon yourself in the desert.

The Structure Of Magic
I loved that movie The Illusionist, starring Edward Norton. It provided some interesting insights into the life of someone who does stage magic. This material on "The Crystal Cities" is meant to give insight into those "other levels" of reality that are also unfolding, even as humanity continues to struggle with life on Planet Earth during these powerful times of transition. There is much going on out there, though many folks are oblivious to it, because our Veils of Forgetfulness hide it from daily view. In this way, we are not distracted by the rest of who we are and what we are doing (unless it serves our purpose to know this).

As I continue to describe Chehala, my Crystal City, the reader can catch a glimpse of what can be done, consciously, to form a bridge between 3D hassles and needs and Expanded Reality that knows no bounds. In this, Imagination becomes our springboard, helping us leap beyond skepticism and despair... so that the reality which goes on outside our "reality box" can be comprehended and utilized to our advantage.

The Healing Tower
There is a distinctive, beautiful Tower in Chehala, tall and still... standing alone in the distance. It is our Healing Tower. It is here where newly arriving souls go, before taking up residence and participation in Chehala. In the center of the Tower there is an altar, surrounded by seven giant candles. Incense burns there... night and day. It is here where each soul is laid, so its vibration can be calibrated to the frequency of the mountains, and the frequency of Chehala, itself. It all happens one level at a time.

In Chehala, the word "healing" means, "finding in myself the ME that is YOU." There is no sickness, really. There are just various levels of detachment... various "veils" that hide the resonance which exists (or could exist) between ourselves and people who come around us.

The floors in the Tower are made of pure Alabaster, and the altar is polished marble... coated with a 3 inch layer of amethyst. Beneath the smooth altar top, there are 12 coils of copper wire... each one wrapped around an image of some God or Goddess of Olde. Regularly, the images are rotated out... to mix and mingle the calibration, and the infusion of energy includes all "essential elements" required for each individual soul's assistance and empowerment.

There is always the light of dawn in the Crystal City, even during what humans tend to think of as night. In this existence, it is the bodies of people that change with the times and the seasons. Many have very thick and expansive lids over their eyes, as their genetic heritage heralds from darker realms. And everyone offers respect and focus, with their backs to the sun - facing west - as many times a day as they can. It is a ritual of focus, and a genuine privilege. We move from waking to sleep, from dreaming to doing, from feeling to knowing... an endless cycle of wonderment and change... remembering... always remembering.

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You have come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore
What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

Hope fades
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time
Don't say
We have come now to the end
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again
And you'll be here in my arms
Just sleeping

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West

The Temple Of Light and Sound
Off the main courtyard near the Great Hall sits The Temple of Light and Sound. In the center of the pavilion, there is a huge fountain - a Rainbow of Colours - filled with icy shapes in cool, clear water. The water changes figurations, changes colors, spraying mist across the lush greenery surrounding it. In snow-filled background there is a strong presence of the mountain, as it watches over what unfolds there.

In the Main Assembly Chamber, huge generator crystals are strategically placed to activate and amplify the spirits of all those who assemble there. Each day begins with a 20 minute meditation, and a 15 minute ritual of chakra cleansing and re-focus intent into pristine clarity.

A choir of 21 Elven Maidens sings daily, using ancient tongues and high, harmonic tones. They are the faint remembrance of realities soon to manifest on Earth once again. A harpist is usually in attendance, and one who plays a unique kind of electronic flute. Soaring, resonant tones cast mystical patterns on the walls, dancing in laser artistry to the melodies as they change.

At sunset, a ceremonial fire is lit at center of the courtyard, and a festival of love and merriment sanctifies the evening for worship, feasting, and group sharing of visions and the interpretations of dreams. The dawn is veiled for a time, so the full effect of the ceremony can be felt... with remembrance of our days in 3D. You'll notice that, in the Music Video for Into the West, there were all kinds of "endings" to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Some folks went off into clouds of etheric splenor. Others were crowned to be King and began their duties of rebuilding Middle Earth from the effects of the wars. Still others built homes and raised families, living joyfully from the bounty of the land. This is how it shall be, as the New Earth transforms before our very eyes! And the Crystal Cities will play an important part in all of that.

One night a year, the bell tower sounds - midnight - and there is reverence for those who have passed on into their fully expanded state. For the rest of us, there is everlasting love and anticipation - an eternity of possibility - life's honey-sweetened fruit, ripe for the picking. And the festivals and conferences continue daily, lighting our courtyard with merriment, laughter, and the sweet smell of herbs and incense.

Initiating Your Own City
As I go through these descriptions, I am sharing but a few ways out of many available to all for tapping into expanded consciousness. One lady who read these accounts decided NOT to build a Crystal City, but to establish a wooded realm for herself. She looked around her local area, and found a woods that was perfectly capable of hosting such a domain. No harm in that!

I absolutely LOVED the Forest of Lothlorien in the first Lord of the Rings adventure. I don't blame my friend for wishing to focus her extra-dimensional energies into something like that. I found it interesting to read that J.R.R. Tolkein (author of the Rings Trilogy) was a linguist first, and an Imagineer second. He absolutely loved languages. In the writing of his books, he invented (from scratch) two complete Elven Languages, which are still taught and spoken today. You can find formal courses in these languages on the Internet. His contact with and expositions on Middle Earth was simply for the purpose of creating a realm in which these beloved languages could be spoken. Isn't it interesting... the variations motives moving through people as they exercise their sense of divine creativity?

To begin your own process, you may want to look around your local area for a mountain, hill, or high place you could initiate into the Crystal Grid. As was mentioned early, this "antenna" will not only inform you of planetary energies which are making their way through the "Arc" of Power Spots, but it will also transmit your own perceived data for the benefit of those who are accessing this knowledge. Of course, your personal data is already being broadcast holographically, through cellular circuitry. But all that is individual. Crystal Cities are about accessing and contributing to the collective consciousness as it evolves during this historic time.

So go ahead. Ask your inner self (and your outer landscape) where your City wishes to be established. Pay attention to what comes to you, what seems to call your name. Think locally, but imagine globally as well. I am currently administrating from 3 Crystal Cities (in the Pacific Northwest, in Southern England, and in Bretagne, France). You can double or triple your power, if you so desire. But in the beginning, it might be helpful to decide on just one.

It was once written: "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help." If we really listen, we'll find that more than "help" comes from up there these days. A whole LIFE is waiting for us, just beyond the walls of our current "box" of belief systems. More will definitely be revealed!
