Remembrance of times past – a watch and a message

I recently channeled several messages from a council of spirit elders for a small group of incredible women. During one part of the channel, in answer to a personal question, I was presented with an image of a shiny metal antique locket that I felt was in some way associated with time or times past. When I awoke, I drew a simplified illustration of what I saw for the woman who had asked the question. When she saw my drawing, she knew what it was. It took her a bit of time to find it, and when she did, she took a picture to share with me. I was amazed. Rarely do I get concrete positive reinforcement of this work that I do. This took my breath away.

With her permission, I’m sharing this story, in her words, with you. As she wrote to me: “[Everyone listening] was crying during this message… so it can translate to others as well.” The elder that was speaking during this part of the channel was “Mother”, the Mother spirit, epitome of the divine feminine.

I would like to thank J for sharing this story with all of us.

From J:

The question presented was in regards to an upcoming visit with my mom and spending time with her the week of her 89th birthday. Knowing that she did not want any birthday presents, I wondered how I could honor that but still give her a gift. In my heart, I was feeling that she still carried a lot of pain from her childhood and I wondered if there was any way that I could help ease that pain. So, the question was, “Is there anything that I can give my mom that will support her at this time in her life?”

The entire communication lasted about ten minutes and was this:

(Marit) “I have no idea what this means. Seeing a trinket of some sort… It feels like a remembrance of times past….of gratitude. I’m seeing a silver trinket…..silver? Something that means something to you. Round. Perhaps with a chain.” Mother says…..

(Marit, clears her throat…..long pause….voice softens):

There is always room for more love. Easing someone’s way, sometimes just a matter of standing by one’s side. I remind you that everyone has their own journeys. All those who travel must ultimately do so alone. All we can do is love and support….within the boundaries of the relationship we create for each other. You are so giving. It is in your personal strength, growing your own light and power, that you can best give to her. Without that you will simply give it all away. When you are strong in your own light, you can give eternally. Always remember that she loves you, that this is the path you chose together, knowing full well… that sometimes the unheralded lesson that we forget is that we can only do so much, and that is exactly right. (She is putting out her hand. I am crying) It’s okay. It’s more than just your mother. It’s about your daughter. About your husband. It’s about finding your true heart center and, by nature, illuminating the path for others… and sometimes that is the greatest gift you can give.

– Mother

Later, when you were recovering from the trance, you mentioned that you thought the trinket was a locket. Until you drew it, I could not think of what it might have been. When I saw your drawing, though, I knew exactly what you were describing.

The funny thing is, when I went home to see my mom she asked about the watch out of the blue and wondered if I had ever given it to my daughter.

The locket watch

I wanted to share with you that I found the watch that Mother described to you during your trance and it is almost exactly as you drew and described it! AMAZING. The design is very organic and does have some scroll-like lines. It is, in fact, a locket on one side….my mom and her sister are in the photo…my mom on the right and her sister on the left.

A New Sacred Lightbody Meditation for Now

Since January, and the beautiful regression session I did with Caroline, I have been learning more about my own role in the opening and healing of earthen vortices from my Spirit Guide and directly from Archangel Metatron. My work has been a combination of out-of-body meditative voyages and actually being led to vortices in my travels around the Western United States to physically heal the passage and draw forth cached energy from within the Earth. I understand that my physical presence at these sites is important in the acceleration of the Shift.

There is a process to preparing my body for this work. I have come to understand it as the New Sacred Lightbody Meditation. Metatron has asked me to share this practice of animating the sacred geometry of our bodies — Merkabah — to become conductors of light and love, and to seek wholeness — the merging of our physical bodies and our spiritual bodies into complete beings of light. I like to think of this as turning ourselves into sacred body crystals, which resonate, heal, and radiate love.

There are other known ways to activate your body as Merkabah, shared by respected thought leaders such as Drunvalo Melchizadek in The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, and by Tachiri Tachi-Ren in What is Lightbody? Metatron teaches that the vibration of the world is everchanging. The ways we have been taught in the past are not wrong. They were right for the times and will still continue to be right for some people. This, however, is the way that he has taught me now. As always, as with everything, please choose your own path.

Before sharing the steps of this meditation, I will explain what we are doing when we activate our Sacred Lightbodies. As always, I will use lay terms and real speak to do this. I am a channel and I communicate with Metatron regularly, but this lesson has been long and is ongoing. I will share with you, in my own words, what I’ve learned (so far).

Turning Yourself On

Think of activating your Sacred Lightbody as turning yourself on. It is the activation of your highest and truest self, one with Source, one with others who are also one with Source. (Remember, we are all Source and Source is all of us. There is no us and them. Sometimes we forget this.)

The activation is activation on all levels. We are not just setting our physical selves aside to find spiritual awakening somewhere “out there.” We are connecting our physical and our spiritual with our mental and our emotional to become whole. As humans, the ideal is not to simply leave our cumbersome bodies behind and find ethereal enlightenment beyond, it is to fully embrace the bodies we have chosen and to empower ourselves in them as spiritual, emotional, and mental as well as physical. We are truly making the most of who we are. The most. The best. The brightest. Whole.

This is a very powerful meditation. Train yourself to use it and to gain understanding from it as you do. Trust that you will find what you need when you need it. Allow the shedding of the unimportant. Allow the understanding that you are more than just physical. Allow your higher self to invoke soul memory to teach you what you most need to know now. Allow communion with spirits, teachers, your guides, your council. Allow the revelation of your own latent talents and gifts, and your own soul’s purpose. This meditation is an invitation into yourself, fully understood and fully empowered, in and as and of Source.

Yes, you can find soul enlightenment without this meditation. There is no one way. This meditation is an accelerator. You have the potential to learn more and more quickly when you incorporate this meditation into your life, while keeping your eyes and your heart open in your daily doings to apply what you learn. Do be aware of and grateful for what you do learn as you go.

Remember that the higher vibration that so many people seek right now is not simply a gift from Spirit bestowed upon us because we really, really want it. It is the result of learning, understanding, seeking, and finding. It is a process. Honor the process. This new Sacred Lightbody Meditation is a meditation to help you along the way.

The New Sacred Lightbody Meditation

  • Open and activate your heart. This means different things to different people. My way of centering consciousness may be different than yours. I envision my heart opening and glowing with a radiating white light. My heart is on.
  • Open and activate your third eye. Sense what is around you and in you. Find your place in Source and in your body. My eye is open.
  • Open your other Chakras.
  • Create an energetic link to Source directly from your Crown Chakra. Allow Source light to enter you from above, flowing over your Chakras and through everything that is you. Allow the energy to flow at the amount and the rate that feels right to you.
  • Create an energetic link to the Earth vortex of your choosing. This is connecting you to Source via Earth. It is grounding you to the energy of this planet. Allow vortex energy to enter you through your base, flowing over your Chakras and through you. Allow this energy to swirl with Source energy inside you as a sacred vessel.
  • From the center point of your Third Eye, send out vectors of Source energy in six directions. Front and back. Left and right. Up and down. Send these vectors, or lines, to the edge of your own energy. The one reaching up extends to Source. The one reaching down extends directly through your Chakras. Set the vectors in spinning motion counterclockwise on the up-down axis.
  • Repeat the process of #6 with vortex energy from your Sacrum. This time, the vector reaching up extends through your Chakras, and the one reaching down extends to vortex energy. Set the vectors in spinning motion clockwise.

Allow yourself to feel the energy throughout. Allow the activation of spiritual, emotional, and mental self within, and then beyond, physical self. Allow yourself to experience the energy activated by the geometric structural foundation of this meditation.

When your meditation is complete, clear and close the energy link to Source, and clear and close the energy link to Vortex.

The Sacred Geometrical Structure and Movement of the Meditation

Metatron taught me the meditation before he taught me the why and how of it, so that is how I am presenting it here. I process analytically, so, of course, I had to make sense of it all. Why the spinning vectors in different directions from different chakras?

For a thorough understanding of sacred geometry and its function and form in our world and universe, I highly recommend reading the book I mentioned above, The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, by Drunvalo Melchizadek. I have owned Volume One of the two-part series for more than a year, but only started reading it this winter. Remarkably, I found that the lessons I channeled from Metatron were reiterated in lessons, complete with diagrams, in the pages of the books that I read right after. No coincidence, of course. I don’t agree with everything Drunvalo writes, but I have found what he teaches about sacred geometry to be very helpful.

I intuitively knew that this mediation was very powerful and that it was somehow activating the sacred geometry of me and within me. I knew that in the sending out of straight-line vectors and then setting them in opposite spinning motion to create complementary spirals (how I visualized them so I had to presume that that is what they were), I was combining the masculine and the feminine of consciousness and imitating, or perhaps setting up, the matrix of creation. A few weeks ago I was feeling stumped, though. Before I went to sleep that night, I asked for help in a dream.

At 3 that morning I woke up, in the still and the dark, repeating the words “Fibonacci Sequence” over and over again. “Ok,” I thought, at first confused but then understanding that this was what I’d asked for. “I’ll look into this… when it’s not 3 am.”

You remember the Fibonacci Sequence from sixth grade math, right? Leonardo Fibonacci is the man who defined the sequence that starts with 1, 1 and goes on from there, with every next number being the sum of the two before it. 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34…

The geometrical representation of this sequence is where it gets very interesting. You start with two squares the size of 1. Then along one of their combined outer edges you place a square the size of 2. Along the combined edge of one 1 square and the 2 square, you add the square the size of 3. You keep adding a square the sum of the edges of the two prior along the longest edge of the created rectangle. If you apply a curve over the corners of the squares, you get a spiral. The spiral is very close to the Golden Spiral, which appears naturally all over our world — in the curls of shells and the blooms of flowers and the patterns of plants. The Fibonacci derivative is the version that we, as humans, can process and understand. It starts with one. One is something. It is very hard for us to comprehend all that comes before the foundation of 1. The true and divine Golden Spiral goes on infinitely in both directions. It has no beginning and no end. No beginning. That seems harder to grasp. So with Fibonacci, and to understand, we commence with 1.

From here I will connect you with a brilliant post from the blog UniversalZeroPoint, which explains “The Vortex Path of Consciousness” far better than I can. Please read it. When I found this, I was absolutely sure that I had found Metatron’s lesson, clearly explained through words and diagrams.

So what we are doing in this new meditation that Metatron has given us is creating spin around two zero points within ourselves, using our Third Eye and Sacrum Chakras as anchors, to generate the torus shape with a negative pole (yin) and a positive pole (yang) to create the self-sustaining arrangement of two vortices in our bodies — one connected to Source, and one connected to the Vortex energy of our world. As humans, and with what is needed on Earth right now, we want to be connected to both. The energy moves through the vortices, through us, to connect us, divinely, to the Universal Consciousness.

Through this meditation, we connect, we learn, we grow. We are literally making the most of who we are; making ourselves the best and the brightest versions of ourselves. We are making ourselves whole.

The universal unconscious, divine inspiration, and how our future may be written in our past.

As part of the Shift that so many have been heralding, there are currently many ideas and understandings re-emerging in our consciousness. Where do these understandings come from? Divine inspiration, yes. But I believe there is more to the whole story.

There are many people around the world who are simultaneously realizing and actualizing what may seem to be wholly unique and inspired revelations. They are each simultaneously and in their own ways, fulfilling them. These “new” concepts are somehow… encoded in the unity consciousness electromagnetic grid of human awareness.

Let me pause and take a step back.

Art is often a precursor of consciousness. We, as witnesses of art, are able to grant license to the artists of the world to inspire and move us. We let down our analytical guards. Music, films, paintings, and books often herald or usher further understanding in a way that is far more palatable to human consciousness. Artists can be or just are more fluid, open, eccentric in the communication of ideas, ideals, or messages. You know artists who feel that they are simply conduits. It’s an “open myself and the words come to me” kinda thing. I’ve been there. You’ve probably experienced it too. Elizabeth Gilbert is one writer who has openly talked about this in her work. Lots of people have, but she’s particularly relevant here. You can check out her 2009 TED talk: Your Elusive Creative Genius, to hear straight from her.

Gilbert wrote “The Signature of All Things.” It’s a striking novel that interweaves the deeply spiritual and the pure scientific of life to explore evolution. There is lots I can call out here that is relevant to this larger conversation (male brain v. female brain; duality; spiritual sex v. primal sex; etc.) but what is of key interest is that through the book, one learns that evolution, aka the “Survival of the Fittest” was discovered by at least three different people, in three remote parts of the world, relatively simultaneously, and in very different ways. And, interestingly, it was the fittest of the three, Darwin, whose name is now associated with the science and with global understanding.

Though this is historical fiction, it is truth in art. From what I understand, the same is happening now with a more astute comprehension of humans as spiritual light beings.

Also of interest is the work of Lyall Watson in “Lifetide: The Biology of the Unconscious,” which describes a 30-year scientific research project on Japanese monkeys. He tells how scientists watched wild monkeys to whom they gave sweet potatoes, but laid them in the sand. The monkeys didn’t like that sand. Finally one young monkey figured out that washing them made all the difference. Yum. So she taught the older monkeys, who then taught others. Then, at some point, when there was a critical mass of understanding (100 monkeys), all the monkeys on the island started washing their potatoes — even those who hadn’t encountered the original little monkey that started the trend. But of more interest, all the monkeys of this species across all Japanese islands started washing their potatoes on the exact same day.

Oh, hi, Jung. Oh, hello, Joseph Campbell. Good to see you again, universal unconscious.

What we can gather here is that we are all connected. As the understanding spreads, so we all come to see. It’s beautiful really.


Tom is home.


A few days ago, a young woman came to me with the photo above and a story. She and her family had been painting a few rooms in their house. They moved some furniture to make room. Moving the furniture, as it often does, drew her attention to some dust. She cleaned. Later, she used one of the dressers she had just dusted as a seat while she put on her makeup. It was in the way in front of her mirror, so she made do. When she got up, she looked down at the dresser and found this… 1787 etched clearly in the top. It had not been there when she dusted. It had not been there just moments before. And it wasn’t as if her sitting on the dresser could have rubbed clear the numbers that had been there forever. It was an IKEA dresser — cheap, functional, and without a doubt, not anywhere near 227 years old.

She didn’t feel scared. She felt no negative energy in the house. She was more curious. She wondered what it was and who had written it. She asked me to help.

Channeling, I learned that the spirit who had etched the date was named Tom. He was not ill-intentioned at all, he was just lost. He had encountered the woman and her family at the park. He felt safe with them, so he followed them home. He had not been with them long. And all he really wanted to do was to get home, back to the spirit realm.

I gained his permission, the Elders’ permission, and the permission of the woman who had contacted me to release him. I facilitated remotely. Because the spirit was friendly and just wanted to return to the spirit realm, and because I had been in this house and could visualize the room in which he had made his temporary shelter, this was relatively easy.

I telepathically reached out to him as my spirit guide, his spirit guide, and escort spirits joined him. I asked him if he could see them and then warmly told him that they were there to guide him home. So happy, he allowed them to wrap him up in light and guide him back to the spirit realm. He was free.

This morning, I asked if Tom might be interested in speaking with me, to tell me about his last life and about the experience of returning to the spirit realm. He agreed. Here is our channeled conversation.

Me: Hello, Tom.

Tom: Hello.

Me: I am honored to speak with you.

Tom: I am honored as well.

Me: Tell me, please, how are you?

Tom: I am fine.

Me: Was there a reunion for you when you arrived home?

Tom: Yes! It was so wonderful to see all my friends and family again. I was so relieved, so happy. And it was decadent!

Me: Decadent? Was there a feast?

Tom: Yes, with cooked food!

Me: Cooked food? You’ve missed cooked food, I imagine.

Tom: Ohhh, yes.

Me: What was there to eat?

Tom: Veal and hot soup and wine.

Me: It sounds nice. Who was there to celebrate with you?

Tom: My entire soul group. Everyone came.

Me: That must have felt amazing. I can’t imagine the love, or how much they must have missed you.

Tom: We talked and shared everything. I had missed so much, but I am all caught up now.

Me: How many lifetimes had your group lived in the time you were stuck on the Earth plane?

Tom: Some one, others up to three.

Me: I see. Do you feel like you missed out or fell behind?

Tom: No. I will catch up!

Me: How many souls are in your group?

Tom: 13

Me: And are you excited to be back with them, and working with them again?

Tom: Yes.

Me: Tell me about your group, please. I’d like to know about them. Do you have a specialization?

Tom: Yes. We work with Xe.

Me: Xe is your spirit guide?

Tom: Yes. He is a very respected elder.

Me: I see. What type of work do you do? Remember, I am still on Earth plane and do not recall.

Tom: Oh, I remember. I was there for a long, long time.

Me: (Laughing) Yes, I didn’t think you could forget so soon.

Tom: We are zoologists.

Me: (Surprised) Zoologists? So do you work with beings from another realm?

Tom: Yes. We study all sorts of animal life and relate our learning to the souls of our realm.

Me: That’s fascinating. So are you a sort of Ambassador Soul?

Tom: Yes. We study and share.

Me: Was your work in your most recent past life on Earth somehow related to your work in the spirit realm?

Tom: Yes. I was an explorer. I came West with Bridger.

Me: Jim Bridger? You were in his party? When were you with him?

Tom: Around 1825.

Me: 1825 is when he was in this area. I’ve read he was among the first European Americans to see the Great Salt Lake, and at about that time, yes?

Tom: Yes. I was with him. It was a sight to behold.

Me: Were you with him to document the animals of the West as you traveled?

Tom: Yes. I was a very good artist.

Me: What was your full name?

Tom: I was Thomas Wipple.

Me: Did you work for the Rocky Mountain Fur Company, and leave from St. Louis in 1822 like Bridger did?

Tom: Yes. I recorded the animals we saw in our travels.

Me: How old were you when you joined the company in St. Louis and headed west?

Tom: I was 30.

Me: So that means you were born in 1792?

Tom: Yes.

Me: So, Tom, what was the significance of the date 1787, the date you etched on the family’s dresser a few days ago?

Tom: When I was a boy, I borrowed a knife to etch that date into a tree. It was the year that my brother was born. I also etched the year he died. I made his grave marker.

Me: What year did he die, Tom?

Tom: 1798

Me: Your brother was very special to you?

Tom: Yes, he was.

Me: Did you finally get to reunite with him when you returned to the spirit realm?

Tom: Yes! It really was… well, no words can express.

Me: Is he a member of your soul group too?

Tom: Yes. We are reunited. And we will work together again soon on Earth.

Me: So, why did you etch 1787 into the dresser?

Tom: It is permanently etched on my soul. I remember it so well. I just thought it and it appeared on the dresser.

Me: Why did you etch on the dresser? What were you trying to do?

Tom: I wanted the woman to know I was there. I thought she might be able to help.

Me: To help you get home?

Tom: Yes, back to the spirit realm.

Me: Was there something about her that made you feel that she could help?

Tom: Yes, she was so bright. She is truly good. And shortly after, I got to return. She did help. She came to my rescue.

Me: Is there anything that you’d like to say to her?

Tom: Yes. Thank you. Thank you. And to you too. Thank you. You do beautiful work.

Me: Thank you, Tom. I am honored and happy that I could help you. I have a few last questions, if that is ok.

Tom: Yes.

Me: How did you die?

Tom: Even a strong man couldn’t survive a bullet to the chest.

Me: You were shot?

Tom: It was a stray bullet.

Me: How old were you then?

Tom: I was 45.

Me: So let’s see… that was 1837. Where were you?

Tom: I was in camp.

Me: Ah. I see. And you’ve been wandering about what has become Salt Lake City ever since?

Tom: Yes. I’ve seen a lot of changes.

Me: Why didn’t you return to the spirit realm when you died? Why did you stay?

Tom: I had children. I wanted to make sure they were fine.

Me: So you stayed to watch them grow up?

Tom: Yes. And then they died, and I was stuck.

Me: So you were reunited with them as well, in the spirit realm. Are they part of your soul group?

Tom: They are not, but they came to welcome me back, and they came to the feast.

Me: Tom, I am so glad you are home. I am happy you are with your loves again. I wish you the best. Thank you for speaking with me.

Tom: Thank you as well.
