is an article from this last Sunday's Columbus
Dispatch about advancements in photography being used in archeology
to enhance latent or degraded images. Perhaps it may be appropriate
for your use or needs.
It is worth externalizing and sharing in writing my experience that
I related over the phone in regard to the fired-clay deer figurine or
artifact I found on the mesa or mountain ridge behind the trailer.
message was that the archeologist said 'the figurine was 800 - 1,000
years old. In 15 years he had heard of items like this locally, but
had not seen one personally. It was either a child's toy or a ceremonial
item, and that he leaned toward a child's toy. In dousing your feedback
was in relation to ceremony.'
this phone message I found myself pondering the idea of what it would
have been like 800 to 1,000 years ago in that location.
my consciousness I was a young Indian walking along with a group in
single file at night. We were walking south and just beginning to -cut
from the west side of the ridge top toward the eastern edge where a
ceremony was to take place around a fire under the stars and overlooking
the bowl shaped canyon there.
the deer figurine. Immediately, and before I could stoop to pick it
up, an energy moved into my consciousness and said, "Let it lie
there. You will find it again. . . in another
life". As I walked on, I could remember the thoughts that flashed
instantaneously in my mind. "But, it is lying on top of the ground!
Someone else may find it. Someone behind me may step on it and break
it. How will it get covered over? How will I find it again?" Psychologically,
I saw the choice to walk on as the easier one because stopping and looking
for it would disrupt the solemnity of the procession and spotlight my
clumsiness. My mother asked where the deer was as we sat around the
fire and people were placing items in the center. Then 3 dimensional
personality life moved on-in both time frames.
day I was buzzing with energy. No effort was
required to bring forth the experience again. I merely needed to open
to it. In the collapse of time it lives now. It was such a rich, joyous
experience. The overriding gleanings of insight so far have to do with
the appropriateness, grace, synchronicity, and perhaps, need, in this
life to have a physical linkage to make real and personal the truth
of our immortality. Past life flashes and accompanying intuitive insights
had given me a certainty in immortality intellectually but they have
not had the personal energetic impact this had.
later Sandy did some
energy work to help me rebalance. It seemed that Indian youth experienced
a sense of personality loss of power at losing a valued possession,
the figurine. Of course this was a purely subjective and self- imposed
loss-of the nature of an illusion-from the perspective of larger spiritual
reality. Yet that personal energy was present and I released it. The
insight came that the loss then was the seed for the gain today of the
greater reinforcement within personality-level consciousness in this
life that our true power comes from knowing and living--being our immortal
and divine nature and not from anything external.
